Black Box Winners Announced!

March 25, 2011

In an effort to bring the feel-good hobby vibe of the 2011 Industry Summit to collectors at home, we conducted a contest earlier this week to award Black Boxes to five lucky Panini America video box busters.

The rules were simple: Go to your local hobby shop and purchase a hobby box of Panini America trading cards, video the break at the shop (and show your receipt for proof  of purchase), post it to YouTube and post a link to the break on The Knight’s Lance.

The first five collectors to do that earned themselves a Summit-exclusive Black Box. Before we reveal the winners, we want to offer a sincere and hearty “thank you” to everyone who participated. Your videos were great and your expeditious support of your local card shops was tremendous. (Oh, and even if you weren’t one of the following five winners, know that everyone who participated and posted a video will win something.) 

Now, onto the winners . . .

Congratulations to everyone and thanks again. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days for a contest to award one more Black Box.

    thanks for this great contest.

    Actually I didn’t plan to buy another box this month, but for this contest it was a great pleasure and a good support for my LCS, who is the last one left in my hometown.

    I just hope it doesn’t take as long for them to get their prizes as it does on some of these God Forsaken Redemption’s!!!!

    Received my black box today. Tracy, thanks for the fast shipping.

    was really excited to open the box. here is what I got:

    10-11 Panini Limited Banner Season Prime Patch Black Box 1/1 Paul Pierce

    and an awesome football autograph of Drew Brees

    I’m really not into football, but this autograph looks so great that I will keep it in my collection together with the Pierce 1/1 patch.

    That was a great box for me.

    Thanks again Panini and Tracy for this great contest!
