2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball Shines in a Panini Unwrapped Saturday Image Hunt

October 5, 2013

hh_tease_blogthumb

During an otherwise average Friday afternoon inside Panini America HQ yesterday, Tracy Hackler and Tim Trout made the time to bust one utterly entertaining box — hey, aren’t they all? — of the new 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball for this special episode of Panini Unwrapped. With Hackler fittingly festooned in a throwback, circa-1994 Vance Johnson Denver Broncos jersey and Trout supporting his Cubbies, the duo had way too much fun busting this particular box.

Luckily for loyal readers of The Knight’s Lance, there are five other boxes that went unopened. After you watch the video, stick around to find out how you can win one of them.

OK, now that you’ve watched the video, it’s time to give you details on how you can win a box. First, tell us which two players Hackler referred to as his favorite players of all time. Secondly, you see that image at the top of this post? The one with a smiling Trout and a pained-looking Hackler? Well, we’ve taken the liberty of hiding that image just one time in galleries linked below. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find the hidden image and tell us — AS A COMMENT TO THIS POST — on which image you found it.

Five winners will receive a brand-spankin’-new box of 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball.

We’ll wait to approve all comments until after the entry deadline, which is TONIGHT at 11:59 p.m. CST, so your comment will appear to you as “pending moderation.” That’s our way of protecting your answers so that everyone else can’t see them. To that end, we kindly ask that you keep your answers to yourself until after the deadline. We want to reward those folks who’ve taken the time and effort to watch the video and find the hidden image.

We’ll then place all correct entries into an online randomizer to select five winners.

Here are your galleries. Happy hunting.
