Panini America 2014 Black Friday Main

It’s been called the most successful hobby shop promotion of all time by longtime industry experts. It’s made hobby shops across North America bona fide post-Thanksgiving retail destinations. It’s delivered some of the most unique and sought after trading cards in recent years. And late next month, it’s making its triumphant return. News flash: Panini America’s 2014 Black Friday promotion is coming.

For the fourth straight year, Panini America will bring the nationwide shopping frenzy of Black Friday to local hobby shops all over the country with another of its now-legendary wrapper-redemption programs. In the coming weeks, The Knight’s Lance will bring you everything you need to know about this year’s special event, including preview galleries, participating shop information and more. Bu today, we’re bringing you an exclusive first look at the 2014 Black Friday base set and Rookie Cards, and providing an updated list of participating Panini Roundtable stores.

This year’s multisport base set features 65 cards, including 21 current stars, 29 Rookie Cards (numbered to 499) and 15 Memorabilia Rookie Cards (numbered to 99). The promotion-exclusive release also marks the return of the striking Panini Collection insert, a comprehensive multisport autograph roster, memorabilia cards devoted to the NBA’s top rookies and the NFL’s Breast Cancer Awareness and Salute to Service initiatives, and many more surprises that will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Once again this season, will deliver an online Black Friday component for collectors who do not have a participating hobby shop in their area. We’ll have additional details on that soon.

    Black Friday is an eye-popper of a promotion.
    Totally redefining the Trading card promotion, Panini has set the bar at altitude… & other manufacturers need pressurized suits and O2 canisters simply to approach the level Panini has attained.

        A “competing” manufacturer visiting the bar set by Panini!

        🚀 ~”Do you SEE what they’re doing!?”
        “yeah, it oughtta’ be illegal, but I want some of those Black Friday packs! Hey, these oxygen canisters really chafe, ya know?”

        +++Outside of Panini, very little intelligent manufacturing life down on Earth.

    I wished I had a way to participate. Maybe I can talk my wife in doing the online version assuming there is one.
