Panini America ‘Where Is It?’ Weekend Back with Classics Football, Excalibur Basketball

May 29, 2016

Knight VIP

They say time flies when you’re having fun, which is why it must be so hard to believe that more than a month has passed since we last conducted an edition of our “Where Is It? Weekend” scavenger hunt here on The Knight’s Lance. Clearly, it’s time to do it again. So if you’re equipped with a searching spirit and just a little free time, you could win one of 15 sweet prizes from Panini America.

For this installment of “Where Is It? Weekend,” we’re giving you two days to find three smaller, perhaps-somewhat-manipulated versions of the Panini America knight logo that appears at the top of this post. This time, the prize pool includes five boxes of 2016 Classics Football, five boxes of 2015-16 Clear Vision Basketball and five boxes of 2015-16 Excalibur Basketball. That’s 15 total prizes!

We’ve had a hectic month or so since our last weekend scavenger hunt — and in that time we’ve delivered a wealthy share of must-see galleries and posts that have kept you up to date with everything we’ve been doing. Many of those galleries will serve as your visual playground for this edition of “Where Is It? Weekend” as we continue the Panini America tradition of giving back to fans and collectors.

Somewhere in the linked galleries below, we’ve hidden THREE images of the Panini knight. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find the hidden images and tell us — AS A COMMENT TO THIS POST — where you found them.

We’ll wait to approve all comments until after the entry deadline — which is Monday night (May 30, at 11:59 p.m. CST) — so your comment will appear to you as “pending moderation.” That’s our way of protecting your answers to this contest so that everyone else can’t see them. To be eligible to win, PLEASE KEEP THE ANSWERS TO YOURSELF (DON’T SHARE THEM WITH OTHER CONTESTANTS) until after the deadline. We want to reward those folks who’ve taken the time and effort to find the hidden images.

We’ll place all correct entries into an online randomizer and award one of the 15 aforementioned prizes to 15 lucky winners.

Just to be clear, here is the hidden image you’re looking for:


Your galleries are linked below. Good luck and thanks in advance for your participation.

    Had a lot of fun opening my box of Classics. Hit a Brandon Allen auto, Bruce Smith jersey, and a blank back of Kamalei Correa. Also had 3 red backs, 6 glossies, Riggins variation, and a bunch of inserts, including 2 bronze parallels. Best rookie was EzE.

    I can now tell people I pulled a huge Correa hit. 😀

And A LeBron James jersey, a Reggie Jackson Jersey and a few short prints 🙂 Thank you @Panini for ALL you do for the collectors!
