Teaser: Panini America Rips 20 Early Packs of 2016 Black Friday (Must-See Gallery)

November 23, 2016


For the sixth straight year, Panini America is about to turn Black Friday into a bona fide sports card shopping holiday at hobby shops across the country. Dealers across North America (you can access the complete list of dealers below) will soon begin the highly anticipated 2016 edition (if they haven’t already) by opening their stores earlier than ever in anticipation of a huge weekend.

Over the course of the last month, we’ve done our best here on The Knight’s Lance to bring you a front-row seat to everything the 2016 Black Friday set has to offer. After the jump, we provide a series of links recapping our preview coverage. What’s more, we’re also providing a pack-by-pack preview of 20 recently ripped Black Friday packs.

With hundreds of local hobby shops participating in this year’s promotion, there’s likely one in your area. But if you don’t have a participating shop in your area, we’ve got you covered there, too. While supplies last, collectors can get in on the Black Friday action at

    You know I have been a fan of these for awhile! Wished I was able to bust some. This years look great. Love the football in the background design

    The rookie ones with the NFL Football in the background look awesome! Order placed-can’t wait!! I really got into these a few years ago when RG III and Luck were the big hits and the hits just keep on rolling this year with all the great NFL rookies!

    Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

    Howdy! I’m still looking somewhere to find out the real name of the /10 cards. Anyone know?

    That’s a great question!! I would love a blog post about the various parallels beyond cracked ice.

    Also, got my Black Friday order. The Black Friday packs were better than the packs in the boxes I ordered, truth be told.
