Panini America Previews 2012 Black Friday Cracked Ice Autograph Inserts (Gallery)

November 19, 2012

Here it is the Monday of Black Friday week and a few of us inside Panini Ameirca HQ just suffered something of a panic attack when we realized that there are still so many previews of the set’s impending greatness that we’ve yet to show.

Indeed, despite the staggering nature of the must-have cards — base, RCs, memorabilia, autographs, parallels, you name it — that we’ve shown so far, there’s still much left to see before the 2012 Black Friday promotion kicks off in earnest later this week.

So today, we provide a massive gallery showcasing a beautiful selection of Cracked Ice autograph inserts sure to provide highlights aplenty in hobby shops across the country later this week. Featuring current superstars and rookies as well as some of the greatest legends of all time, the 2012 Black Friday autograph checklist is a stunning tribute to sports royalty. Gordie Howe. Mark Messier. Robert Griffin III. Andrew Luck. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. They’re all here — and so are many other collecting cornerstones. You can see exactly what we mean in the gallery below.

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance tomorrow for the master list of hobby shops participating in Black Friday and for additional sneak peeks at the product itself.

    These do look nice! I just wish the guys I collected were good enough to be included!

    BTW, isn’t Totally Certified Basketball coming out on Wednesday?? We haven’t seen a look at any of the cards from there yet!

    Will there be a list of participating shops that will be taking part in the Black Friday promotion?

      Absolutely. Working on finalizing that now.

        Awesome…Thanks Tracy!

        After reviewing the list, there are no shops here in Houston that are participating….not that we have that many as it is, I think there’s only 2 or 3 shops here and they don’t really offer much anyway. So much for any Black Friday packs or deals here.

        Stay tuned. We’ll have details on our online component later today.

    No Black Friday packs for me again this year….can’t afford a box of 2012 R&S Football to get them. Thanks anyway.
