Panini America On Location: Day Two at the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention

August 3, 2012

BALTIMOREPanini America’s first full day at the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention was a wild and woolly affair earmarked by a massive line of anxious collectors waiting to rip up the wrapper-redemption program to start the day — and the week’s first three box battles to end it.

In between, the action stayed hot with big pulls, hearty conversation and collecting camaraderie aplenty. To catch everyone up on Thursday’s activity, we present the following image gallery of highlights and a quick video to give everyone who can’t make it to Baltimore the chance to soak in the vibe. Enjoy this comprehensive recap and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.

First, a quick video tour of the Panini America booth . . .

And now, the images . . .

    Look at all of the smiling faces! What a sick Griffey cracked ice auto hit! wow! I am so drooling!

    Out of curiosity, how many people have pulled the Hackler auto card or any of the others? I haven’t seen any on eBay yet. I was curious to see what they would go for.

        You seem to be in 10 places at once and still have time to manage The Knight’s Lance…how do YOU do it 🙂 Has Panini secretly cloned you?

    I know I’m a little late to this blog, but if anyone has any of the Panini America Employee auto cards, let me know. I’d be interested in a deal.
