The Panini America Knight’s Lance Gallery: Assorted Scenes from 2012 Black Friday

November 24, 2012

Thanks to the real-time revelry of social media, many of us across the country have been able to vicariously participate in Panini America’s 2012 Black Friday promotion thanks to the many images and experiences shared by others on sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Today, we’re going to bring you just a small portion of the fun we’ve experienced over the last few days with a gallery showcasing some of the action. The following images were culled from various sources, including hobby shops such as Mike Fruitman’s Stadium Sportscards in Aurora, Colo., Charlie DiPietro’s Sports Cards Plus in San Antonio, Texas, and Steve Mandy’s Attack of the Baseball Cards in Union, N.J.

In addition, we’ve also grabbed a few images submitted by collectors via Twitter and at least one provided via email from collector Keith Saroka, who pulled an Anthony Davis Cracked Ice autograph from some Black Friday packs he acquired through

Enjoy the images — and if you have pics detailing your own Panini America Black Friday exploits, by all means share them in the comments section and we’ll add them to the gallery.

    Totally cool promotion from start to finish! Biggest pull I’ve had in a long time! It was great to get something extra from the online order, but the Davis was over the top!!

    Special shout out to Sports Vault in Exton PA for being very friendly and accomodating on Black Friday for the in-store promotion. Got some cool cards there as well as part of the promotion!

    Went to one of the stores listed in Lexington, Ky and they were out of packs. Was quite the bummer. Awesome hits and pulls by the folks in the pic’s above.
