Panini America Delivers a ‘Happy New Year’ Edition of ‘Where Is It? Weekend’ Contest

January 1, 2017

happy-new-year-2017-blog

They say time flies when you’re having fun, which is why it must be so hard to believe that two months have passed since we last conducted an edition of our “Where Is It? Weekend” scavenger hunt here on The Knight’s Lance. Clearly, with the new year arriving today, 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 10 sweet treats from Panini America.

For this special “Happy New Year” installment of “Where Is It? Weekend,” we’re giving you until tomorrow night to find two smaller, perhaps-somewhat-manipulated versions of the Panini America Happy New Year graphic that appears at the top of this post. This time, the prize pool includes four boxes of 2016 Donruss Optic Football, four boxes of 2016-17 Gold Standard Basketball and two boxes of 2016-17 Select Soccer. That’s 10 total prizes!

We’ve had a hectic two months 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 TWO images of the Panini Happy New Year graphic. 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 (January 2, 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 10 aforementioned prizes to 10 lucky winners.

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

    After about 4 hours combined searching and eyes bleeding cards I found the symbols! The first one found is on the Mike piazza national treasures not the main picture on top but the card in the article and is located on the flag. The second one much trickier in my eyes (I’m colorblind doesn’t help me) is located on the Todd gurley X factor card on the bottom left of the X. Thanks for the chance.

    Does anyone know when, or how the winners will be announced?

  105. January 3, 2017 12:27 am

    By the way Panini. this was VERY challenging. My brother and I worked together for 2 days as a team and just about pulled our eyeballs out.

    We only posted one entry (he posted it) and we followed the rules by not telling anyone else where they are located. Honestly this was difficult and frustrating. We almost killed each other. 🙂 lol

    Dang, we missed the Gurley card… BUT there is an image on the Odell Beckham Prototype card, at the bottom right, next to the E in the word prototype. If that is not one of the secret hidden images, what the heck is it?

    Well, I got my prize box last week and took a few days to break it open a few packs at a time. Thank you once again Tracy & Panini!!

    Happened to have one epic box, and some people might consider it as a ‘hot’ one once you see which auto I pulled. 🙂

    Base/RC Holos – 8 (favorite is Big Ben’s. 🙂 What can I say, #SteelersNation for life baby!)
    Aqua Holos – 1 (#176 Jonathan Williams 027/299)
    Orange Holos – 2 (#57 Jarvis Landry 021/199; #197 Tyler Boyd 139/199)
    Blue Holos – 1 (#3 David Johnson 026/149)
    Red Holos – 1 (#174 Jeff Driskel 99/99)
    The Rookies – 2 (Jordan Howard; Jalen Ramsey)
    The Rookies “Red” – 1 (Christian Hackenberg 68/99)
    Prototype – 2 (Marcus Mariota; Matthew Stafford)
    Legends of the Fall – 1 (Kellen Winslow)
    X Factor – 1 (Adrian Peterson)
    Peyton Manning: The Sheriff – 1 (#16)
    Peyton Manning Top Targets – 1 (#10 Pierre Garcon)
    Gridiron Kings – 2 (Cam Newton; Julio Jones)
    Gridiron Kings “GOLD” – 1 (Dez Bryant 08/10)
    .
    ..

    ….

    And the auto was…..
    #162 Dak Prescott 070/150 (base)

    That auto came out of the second to last pack I opened. I mean, I was like going crazy over that pull! That auto has to be almost single handily the best auto I’ve ever personally pulled out of a pack ever in either Football or Hockey as I normally don’t get that lucky. About the best previous auto pull was a Brett Hull “Inaugural INKS” out of Panini Classics Hockey in it’s only year. Yep, I’m not that lucky on Auto pulls. lol.
