Name That Voice: Golden Age Baseball Stars in Contest Edition of Panini Unwrapped

June 27, 2013


Panini America’s Chris Reed sat down (from behind the camera) with Baseball Product Development Manager Mike Payne and Baseball Acquisitions Manager Tone Stakes for a special unveil of the released-yesterday 2013 Golden Age Baseball. In addition to pulling some of the most heroic baseball stars from the past, Payne and Stakes also provide an inside look into a checklist that combines sports, pop culture and historic relics ultimately making a golden collection of trading card goodness.

You’ll want to keep your ears peeled in this entertaining edition of Panini America’s Unwrapped as two special guests chime in along the way. In fact, the Knight’s Lance wouldn’t be any fun without adding a chance to win a few boxes along the way. So after you watch the video make a guess in the comments section on who you think the two background voices are.


Remember, make sure to post in the comments section who you think the two voices are in the background. We’ll keep the comments hidden and pick four winners who guess the special guests correctly to win one box each of 2013 Golden Age Baseball.

We’ll what are you waiting for — start guessing!

    I was wondering, without looking, how many autograghed rookie cards are in the 2011 Playoff Contenders football set. I have been working on putting this set together having all cards BGS graded.

    Thanks, Rocky

    Thanks for the contest.

    Tracy Hackler
    Chris Barr

    Thanks Panini and Chris for another awesome contest. This one was tough. I had to go back through old Unwrapped videos and try to match the voices. My guess is the voices are:

    Tracy Hackler and Keith Hower.

    Thanks again.

    Great video guys! The answers are Tracy Hackler & Chris Reed. Oh and reflecting back to the Edmund Fitzgerald-there is a shipwreck museum at Whitefish Point on Lake Superior containing artifacts from the wreck. It’s pretty awesome. I’ve been there at least 4 times. Thanks again for the giveaway-

    Just gotta say that this is one amazing product. Its a ton of fun to bust with a mystery in each box. I like the combination of Baseball players and icons among other fun combinations in the product.

  41. June 28, 2013 6:30 am

    First up well done to Mike for using a Stanley knife and not struggling around trying to open a box. Secondly it looks like a nice product!

    First of all, great job with the product guys, it looks great! I am psyched about the bad news bears insert and I believe many others are as well. I am definetly looking forward to getting my hands on some of this product, unfortunately it will probably be retail, I am on a tight budget because I’m a young collector. I have never broken a box and see this as an excellent opportunity to win my first box. Once again this product is great guys.

    My guess is Keith Hower and Tracy Hackler!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a box.

  44. June 28, 2013 9:51 am

    I’ll say its Tracey Hackley and Scott Prusha……but

  45. June 28, 2013 9:52 am

    It could be Tracey Hackler and Keith Hower. The southern draw thing is throwing me off. lol

  46. Andrew McKay permalink
    June 28, 2013 11:08 am

    I am pretty sure the two voices I heard were none other than the amazing duo of Scott Prusha and Tracy Hackler. I could be wrong but that’s who I think it is.

    I am going with……I’ll say its Tracey Hackler and Scott Prusha….I CAN recognize Tracy for sure and I am PRETTY sure it’s Scott..PRETTY sure…..? hmmm lol anyways, first off thank you for the contest, then thank you for the review! I love this product! My only downfall here is that the LAST LCS has closed! Not due to anything they did but the Mall didn’t renew their lease, so now I’m out of an LCS 😦 The NEXT CLOSET one is 40 minutes away so guess I’ll be making a trip when I can,disability premitting and all……but at least with this other store, I can call them and they will order me product anytime I want now since I’ve built up a good repor with them 🙂 Thanks Guys! Love it!

    Busted two boxes today. Not too bad overall.

    +: nice on-card autos (got two in one of the boxes)

    +: playing cards was a different twist. That would be a cool idea to build on in other sets (like football or hockey perhaps). You could have a certain player on say 5-6 different cards and have 20-30 players so people could customize their own deck. If you kept a common PANINI card back, you could also mix sports. Just a thought.

    +: minis are always nice

    +: Three stooges cards

    – : I like the numbered or costume swatch box toppers from last year better.

    -: headliners is getting old unless there is a mem or other tie-in.

    – : Got better overall mem cards last year but that could’ve just been my luck this year.

    Overall on par with last year’s product, which I liked a lot!!!

    July 1, 2013 4:48 pm

    I was going to ask the same? I’m very anxious and curious haha!

  57. July 1, 2013 10:41 pm

    You know, I was thinking, since they approved all the entries “early” (as far as I can tell), maybe it’s because 4 people haven’t guessed the both people correctly yet? Just a random thought that passed through my mind. haha.

    I have to admit, this has been one of the harder contests of late, and I like that! hehe. Cudos on that Panini! 🙂

    Need Help! Finishing buildng Playing Card Set, but the problem I have is about the two Joker cards. So far I’ve only got 1 black Joker card and I checked eBay and do not see the red Joker card ever came out? I need two Joker cards to finish the set; but where is the red Joker?? Help! Anyone? Tracy?

    • July 6, 2013 1:46 pm

      In talking to Product Development, it looks like the red Joker didn’t get printed. Just the black.
