It’s been almost a month since we conducted our last edition of “Where Is It? Weekend” here on The Knight’s Lance, but with Black Friday madness all around us, it’s time to do it again. So if you’re equipped with a searching spirit and just a little free time, you could win one of 10 sweet prizes from Panini America.
For this installment of “Where Is It? Weekend,” we’ve hidden three smaller, perhaps-somewhat-manipulated versions of the Panini America knight helmet logo that appears at the top of this post — and we’re giving you until tomorrow night to find them. This time, the prize pool includes three boxes of 2015 Prizm Football, three boxes of 2015-16 Prizm Basketball, three five-card lots of 2015 Black Friday packs and one box of 2015 Immaculate Football. That’s 10 total prizes.
In an effort to keep collectors updated on the status of those Panini America redemption cards that are currently being processed, we’ll post a list every week, like the one included in the attachments below, detailing the most recent cards being fulfilled this week.
The following list is intended to inform collectors about which redemption cards from which products are being processed this week. We’ll update this list every Friday afternoon, so stay tuned next week if you don’t see your card here.
For the fifth straight year, Panini America is about to turn Black Friday into a bona fide sports card shopping holiday at hobby shops across the country. Dealers across North America will soon begin the highly anticipated 2015 edition (if they haven’t already) by opening their stores earlier than ever in anticipation of a huge weekend.
Over the course of the last month, we’ve done our best here on The Knight’s Lance to bring you a front-row seat to everything the 2015 Black Friday set has to offer. After the jump, we provide a series of links recapping our preview coverage. What’s more, we’re also providing a pack-by-pack preview of 20 recently ripped Black Friday packs.
Here at Panini America, the Black Friday phenomenon about to sweep the collecting nation isn’t just for trading cards. Panini Authentic is getting in on the action too with some Black Friday specials of its own sure to be well-received by discriminating memorabilia enthusiasts.
Panini Authentic has a slew of rim-rattling specials to offer astute holiday shoppers right now, including authentic autographed memorabilia from exclusive superstars such as Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, John Wall, Dez Bryant, Andrew Luck and more.
In seven short days, the newest installment of Panini America’s Prizm Basketball, annually one of the NBA’s most colorful and captivating trading card products, will arrive in hobby shops across North America — and it will do so boasting the trademark blend of vibrantly hued Prizm parallels and stacked autographed checklist that has made the brand a collecting staple.
In the extensive gallery that follows, we showcase a little bit of everything 2015-16 Prizm Basketball has to offer by exploring just some of the gems that surfaced during last week’s Quality Control and Packout processes. Enjoy this pre-Thanksgiving feast and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2015-16 Prizm Basketball.
That sizable buzz you heard reverberating throughout the sports card world yesterday — and the one you no doubt still feel today — can be largely attributed to 71 seconds worth of epic video content that was stealthily delivered by Panini America officials to key hobby distributors.
The total package — the video-embedded thumb drive and the box it came in — was a captivating advancement in the world of product solicitations. But then again, a product as . . . unique . . . as Eminence Basketball demands something different.
One of the greatest things about any holiday season is our penchant for sticking steadfastly to tried and true traditions that bring us joy, rekindle fond memories and make our seasonal celebrations so special every single time. So it is with Panini America’s annual Black Friday set.
Indeed, as we prepare to give thanks for our many blessings this Thanksgiving (mindful to eat enough so that it sustains us for the next day’s Black Friday phenomenon), there’s something comforting — and highly collectible — about the compelling memorabilia cards that have become something of a Black Friday tradition.
