Panini America officials today officially unveiled the details surrounding a special six-card set that will be distributed to registered show VIPs later this month in Chicago at the 2015 National Sports Collectors Convention. The multisport set will be distributed through a coupon inserted into each of the show’s VIP packages that must be presented at the Panini America booth.
Featured in the set are MLBPA Rookie Cards of Kris Bryant and Joc Pederson and NFL Rookie Cards of Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston. The limited-edition set also features NBA Rookies Jahlil Okafor and Karl-Anthony Towns. You can check out the complete six-card set in the gallery that follows.
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.
It’s been almost a month since we conducted our last edition of “Where Is It? Weekend” here on The Knight’s Lance. So we figured we’d get your Fourth of July weekend off to an explosive start with another edition. 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 seven boxes of 2015 Elite Baseball and three boxes of 2014-15 Preferred Basketball. That’s 10 total prizes!
Next Sunday, Aggies legend and Panini Authentic-exclusive athlete Johnny Manziel will return to Aggieland for his first public autograph signing since being drafted by the Cleveland Browns.

“We have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to bring Johnny to a public setting,” said Brian Bayne, Panini Authentic Memorabilia Director. “There’s no better place to hold his first public autograph signing than back home in Aggieland, and Aggieland Outfitters is a perfect fit for Johnny and for Panini Authentic.”
Panini Authentic is celebrating the upcoming Fourth of July holiday by offering up to 20 percent savings on autographed memorabilia from company-exclusive superstars such as Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Kyrie Irving, John Wall, Andrew Luck and Johnny Manziel. Customers can earn the discount by using the promo code FIREWORKS at checkout.

Although College Variations were something of an unannounced surprise when Panini America’s 2015 Father’s Day set first released, it didn’t take long for collectors across North America to discover their presence in many forms — from base cards to parallels to autographs. In fact, some of the earliest Tweets we saw once 2015 Father’s Day packs started getting busted featured those very variations. In fact, we pulled quite a few in our 10-pack Teaser Gallery on June 19.
So as a means of helping close the loop on another wildly successful Father’s Day promotion, we’re going to offer an extended review of the College Variations in the set. In the gallery that follows, you’ll discover a must-see gallery featuring every base College Variation in this year’s set as well as many of the autographs and parallels, too. After the gallery, we offer the complete 2015 Father’s Day checklist.
