A Special Edition of Panini Unwrapped: The Must-See 2012 Video Highlight Reel

December 31, 2012


As we prepare to bid a fond farewell to a simply magnificent 2012, we present for your viewing pleasure the second annual Panini Unwrapped Year-in-Review Highlight Reel. From provocative player interviews and product peeks to explosive endings, outtakes, bloopers, blunders and promotions, it’s all here in a true must-see video sure to leave you smiling in reflection of a profound last 12 months.

This year’s video recap, produced once again by the talented Tom “The Ripper” Key, showcases just how productive, eventful, entertaining and meaningful 2012 was for all of us here at Panini America. And none of it would mean much without you — our loyal customers and fans — riding shotgun with us.

Thanks for everything and here’s wishing you and yours a safe New Year’s celebration. We can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store. Now, to the video . . .

(Here’s a link to last year’s video, too.)

    LOL the ending booms is arguably the best part.
    That tall football card is still a beast.

    Great video! Thanks for putting me and my boys in there from the National. We had a blast and if we can make it out to Chicago next summer, we’ll be there again!!

    Loved the montage of the endings.

    Wow what a great way to celebrate the end of of 2012! I was so surprised to see a clip of me and my Mom meeting Kobe! Other than my 2 daughters being born, that trip to LA to meet the Black Mamba himself Kobe Bryant, was the greatest day EVER and it’s all thanks to you guys at Panini! I’ll never forget everything you guys did for my Mom and I. Not only did I get to meet Kobe, but I got to go to my first NBA game almost courtside I might add and at the Staples Center, stayed in the NICEST hotel I’ve ever stayed at The Ritz Carlton! We also got about 10 hobby boxes, one of them being National Treasures, for my daughters and I to open and last but not least, we got a pair of GAME-USED AUTOGRAPH SHOES of Kobe Bryant!! My Mom and I will NEVER forget it and we will always be grateful for all that Panini did for us. I have always been Paninis #1 fan before the trip and until the day i die and you guys at Panini will have a customer for life and a friend. Happy New Year to everybody at Panini and to everybody on this blog, hope to see you all at The National this year in Chicago! Panini is THE GREATEST card company EVER and 4EVER!
