Panini America Father’s Day Fun Could Win You Free Father’s Day Packs (Contest)

June 13, 2013

2013 Father's Day Contest

With Panini America’s 2013 Father’s Day promotion locked, loaded and ready to create a nationwide hobby-shop frenzy this weekend, Panini America officials are raising the bar in terms of collector engagement, interaction and huge prizes with a special contest to coincide with the weekend-long festivities that will award a total of 200 Father’s Day packs to lucky shop owners and collectors.

Throughout the weekend, we’re asking store owners to share pictures with us through Twitter or good, old-fashioned email of customers in their stores participating in the 2013 Panini America Father’s Day promotion. If you’re participating through Twitter, be sure to use the #PaniniFathersDay hash tag. If you’re participating through email, be sure to use “Panini Father’s Day Pics” as the subject line.

Early next week, we’ll compile the best pictures of the weekend and present them to a distinguished panel of Panini America executives to determine the five best pictures and announce the winners right here on The Knight’s Lance. The five hobby shop owners who submit the winning pictures each will receive 20 Panini America Father’s Day packs. The five collectors in those pictures also will each receive 20 Panini America Father’s Day packs.

So, what kinds of pictures should you submit? Pictures of fathers and their kids busting Panini America products. Pictures of fathers and their kids  busting Panini America Father’s Day packs. Pictures of fathers and their kids showing off their best Panini America Father’s Day hits. Pictures illustrating how the Panini America Father’s Day promotion brought families together in your shop for a great time. Really, any images that detail the fun and excitement of our Father’s Day promotion. And remember, creativity and fun are the names of this game.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Good luck to everyone and thanks in advance for your participation.

And from all of us here at Panini America to father’s everywhere, Happy Father’s Day.

    Any chance those of us that are not near a store and are ordering through the website get involved in the contest?

      I’m sure we’ll think of something. 🙂

        Thanks because I NEVER have a shot at any of this action living in the middle of nowhere.

        hope u do, my nearest hobby shop now is like 3 hours away, all the ones that were closer have gone by the wayside over past 10 years, anyways Tracy is there a place on here or your website where u have a 2013 football products calender, showing what lines come out when or do those dates change so much that you don’t really do that??? Would be nice for me this year to keep tabs on whats coming out and when to make sure I have the cash ready for products I want! Thanks Buddy and Happy Fathers Day a few days early, have a great weekend, we all appreciate what you do here a great deal! Thomas

    Tracy, I think this is absolutely a fantastic idea. I’ve got my creative juices going, and I think you and the top Panini brass are going to love it. Once again, I can’t WAIT for this Father’s day!

    This is pretty cool, and I would LOVE to win something. But similar to others, I don’t have a Hobby Shop anywhere near. I’m not even sure there is a legitimate hobby shop in my State.

    Got what look like some kind of magenta proof baseball card in one of my Father’s Day packs. Unfortunately, I don’t recognize the player, there is a blank back and all there is is “Panini” in the upper left corner. How do I find out what this is? Help!!

    • June 14, 2013 11:27 pm

      Those are called “Progressions.” Only five of each.

        Thanks Tracy! Any suggestions to figure out who the heck is on the card?

    Hi Tracy, I am sure there were a ton of great experiences captured and submitted to Panini America, through email and twitter.

    Wondered when the winners might be announced.

    Again, I know my LCS and our Fathers and families that came in were excited to take part in the Father’s Day promotion and were excited to hear about this promotion.

    This really captures the spirit of the hobby. The family experience was a blast and fun to watch it all unfold!

      We’ll get winners selected and announced in the next day or so. Glad to hear you guys had so much fun. From the looks of things on social media, it was another big hit.
