A Can’t-Miss Episode of Panini Unwrapped: 2012 Black Football (with Checklist)

December 20, 2012


Panini America’s Tracy Hackler and Scott Prusha sat down yesterday afternoon with one box of arguably the most anticipated new NFL product of the season: 2012 Black Football. In this must-see episode of Panini Unwrapped, the daring duo goes card-by-card through that box to provide a stunning preview of what collectors can expect. We’ve also provided the complete 2012 Black checklist at the bottom of this post.

But this is no ordinary Panini Unwrapped. Stay tuned till the bitter, bitter end to find out what happens when Hackler pays off a most unfortunate Australian Football League fantasy debt.

After you’ve watched the video and perused the checklist, we’re going to give you a chance to win some of the hits from this particular box (as well as a few boxes of 2012 Black Football) just for answering three quick questions as a comment to this post:

1. Who’s your favorite NFL player to collect?

2. What’s your favorite NFL team to collect?

3. What’s the single favorite Panini America NFL trading card in your collection? (If you can add a pic with you holding that card, even better)?

Enjoy the video, good luck with the contest and thanks in advance for your participation. Oh, and here’s the checklist: 2012 Black FB Checklist

    My favorite player to collect has been Frank Gore, since he’s been carrying my team for years. It’s becoming Colin Kaepernick, though. It’s nice to be able to see my team develop a future.

    My favorite team to collect is the 49ers.

    My favorite card is a 1/1 2011 Playoff Contenders Quad Ink Signatures of the 49ers (Gore, Crabtree, Davis, and Braylon Edwards… for some reason). I sold the Cam Newton rookie auto I pulled in order to purchase the redemption for this card. I didn’t know it was 1/1 until I received it!

    Thanks for putting out the best football product!
