How You Can Win During Panini America’s Recap of the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere

May 21, 2012

If you missed any of this weekend’s wall-to-wall coverage of the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiereย right here on The Knight’s Lance, well, you missed a lot. So just in case you did, we’ve compiled all of our links from the blockbuster event below so you can relive all of the excitement one more time — or as many times as you’d like.

This post will also serve as an official contest notification. After all, we acquired a handful of autographed Rookie Inscriptions Personal Editionย cards over the last few days for the express purpose of giving them to you, our loyal customers. How, exactly, are we going to do that? Keep reading to find out.

First, here’s a quick rundown of our must-see coverage:

Robert Griffin III, Panini America Preview the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere

Panini America Recaps a Busy First Day at the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere

Panini America On Location: Day Two at the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere

Panini America On Location: Day Three at the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere

Panini America’s Action-Packed Saturday at the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere

Now, to the contest. Look, it’s no secret that next to the Rated Rookie T-shirts Panini America unveiled over the weekend, perhaps nothing else generated as much buzz during the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere as the return of the acetate technology on the autographed Rookie Inscriptions. And your chance to one is as simple as this:

  1. Like the Panini America Facebook page
  2. Follow the Panini America Twitter account
  3. Subscribe to The Knight’s Lance by clicking the “Sign me up!” button in the top right corner
  4. Leave a comment to this post letting us know you’ve done all three of those things (if you’ve done all three things prior to this contest, there’s no need to do them again. Just let us know with a comment)

On Friday, we’ll do a random drawing of all eligible participants and award 15 of these beauties. (For the record, the winner of last Thursday’s Robert Griffin III Inscriptions card is Christina L. Rivers.)

Oh, and just to make sure we have some new content to accompany the recap links, below you’ll find a gallery showcasing just some of the on-card autographs we acquired Saturday, including the multi-signed marvel known as Pen Pals and an assortment of cards you’ll find in the upcoming 2012 Prestige Football release. Enjoy — and good luck in the contest.

    The cards look awesome. i been collecting for years. There isn’t a Hobby Shop were I live . I live in in a small town Harlan ,KY. I have to buy my cards at Wal-Mart and if i am lucky to pull a auto it is a no name. But i wish i could win a RG3 auto. That would be such a rush. That i have not experienced in a long time. Hate to give a sob story , but i would love to have a auto of a top popular player. Thanks for producing great cards. Got my fingers crossed.

    Absolutely did all three. The cards look GREAT Panini! Hopefully you got some 2012 Score rookie cards signed! I love Score and every single year I keep saying “This hobby NEEDS affordable products that kids can buy! Even $3 is a bit steep for a single pack of cards! And $400 is just freaking outrageous for only 7 cards!” I know, that $400 pack of 7 cards is one of those OTHER guys ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Even if you aren’t giving away any Score cards in this giveaway, I’d still LOOOOOVE any one of the other ones! Huzzah!
