Panini America Unveils 2012 National VIP Plans, Keeps Two Cards a Mystery

July 9, 2012

Panini America officials on Monday afternoon unveiled the details surrounding a special six-card set that will be distributed to registered VIPs later this month in Baltimore at the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention. The set, styled after the legendary Diamond Kings art cards, will include Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Kyrie Irving.

And in an exciting twist, two additional mystery subjects will be unveiled during the opening day of the National, Wednesday, August 1.

You can check out the first four cards in the Panini America VIP set below. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days as we continue to unveil our explosive, show-stealing plans for the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention.

    Wow! love the design. The Kings insert series always catches everyone eye. Thanks for the eye catching gallery! Wished I could go. Would love to land these. And especially the mystery two of Justin Bieber (Singing King) and Tracy Hackler (Blog King).

    Can’t wait to pick up my set. I will pass on any Hackler card as I want value in my vip bag unless it a SP.

    Can’t wait either to pick up my sets, yes sets. I also can’t wait to receive my Ripken mystery card and the kobe mystery card. Tracy, I have a big thank you for you too.

    What’s the deal with Irving in a suit? Still can’t use real images until fall?

    Heard a rumor Lebron’s deal with UD expired 6/30 and he’ll be one of the mystery cards…
