A Contest Edition of Panini Unwrapped with 2013-14 Timeless Treaures Basketball

December 14, 2013


You know things are moving at a hectic pace inside Panini America HQ when it takes the crew until Friday afternoon to sit down and film an episode of Panini Unwrapped for a product that released two days earlier. But that was the case this week when Tracy Hackler and Keith Hower finally had the chance yesterday afternoon to bust four boxes of the new 2013-14 Timeless Treasures Basketball.

The video details just some of the enhancements that have been made to the venerable Timeless Treasures brand; it also features Hower spewing some inside knowledge on variations within the product. Be sure to stick around after the video for a contest that will award five winners some unopened boxes of 2013-14 Timeless Treasures Basketball.

OK, now that you’ve watched the video, let’s get to the contest. This is a two-parter and you’ll leave your answers as ONE COMMENT TO THIS POST. Part one is easy if you watched the video, so let’s get that one out of the way: Who does Hower say is his favorite player after pulling one of that player’s jersey cards? For the second part of the contest, we’re rolling out another vaunted, almost-weekly Knight’s Lance Scavenger Hunt.

You see the image at the top of this post featuring Hackler and Hower? Well, we’ve taken the liberty of hiding a smaller, perhaps-somewhat-manipulated version of it just one time somewhere in one of this week’s Knight’s Lance galleries linked below. Part two of your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find the hidden image and tell us on which card image you found it.

We’ll wait to approve all comments until after the entry deadline, which is roughly 23 hours from right now — TOMORROW (December 15) at 10 a.m. CST – so your comment will appear to you as “pending moderation.” That’s our way of protecting your answers to this contest so that everyone else can’t see them. TO BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN, PLEASE 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 place all correct entries into an online randomizer and award 10 winners with a box of 2013-14 Timeless Treasures Basketball. Just to be clear, the image you’re looking for is the one that appears as the lead image of this post.

You’re galleries are linked below. Good luck and thanks, as always, for participating.
