For this special 200th episode of Panini Unwrapped (man, have we already done that many?), we thought we'd let the product in the video -- the highly anticipated 2012 Limited Football -- provide all of the fireworks. We'll save the special celebratory giveaway until after you watch the video.


For this special 200th episode of Panini Unwrapped (man, have we already done that many?), we thought we’d let the product in the video — the highly anticipated 2012 Limited Football — provide all of the fireworks. We’ll save the special celebratory giveaway until after you watch the video.

2012 Limited Football releases to the hobby tomorrow packing three autograph or memorabilia cards per box (with at least one autograph guaranteed), and some of the most attractive designs and photography of the 2012 NFL collecting season.

As you’ll see in the video, Panini America’s Tracy Hackler and Carlos Torrez also discover that Limited includes some pretty amazing Rookie Cards and jumbo memorabilia gems, too. And you’ll have the chance to win them . . . after you watch the video.

Now, for the special 200th episode contest. We’re going to give away the cards in the image below (some of the sweetest hits from this edition of Panini Unwrapped and from the Limited teaser gallery we posted last weekend) as five two-card lots through a special Knight’s Lance scavenger hunt.

Limited FB Contest

In the two Limited galleries linked below, we’ve hidden nine letters (five in the first gallery, four in the second). Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find those nine letters and put them together to form one particular word and leave your answer as a comment to THIS POST.

Good luck. You have until exactly 12 p.m. CST tomorrow (Wednesday, January 16) to get your entries in. Five winners from all correct entries received will be awarded two of the cards above. Here are the galleries:

  1. Those are some amazing cards! Congrats on the 200th episode. I know I look forward to them all the time and they are always entertaining.

    As for the contest. The phrase hidden is: Limitless.

    Thanks again for everything!

  2. Hey guys, awesome contest! Uh, could you please be more specific when you say letters? I am not exactly sure what I am looking for… thanks!

    1. You’re looking for nine letters (as in A, B, C, D, E, F, G . . .) hidden on nine different cards throughout those two galleries that, when put together, spell one particular word.

  4. My Answer: LIMITLESS

    C’mon Chandler Jones, my Jon Jones auto needs the company of his brother’s 🙂
    Ray Lewis, Brock and Russel Wilson Prime card are also very very sick! Who are you rooting now that Denver is out, I want to see the Harbaugh Bowl and Ray Lewis to retire a winner. I’m expecting an exciting BAL vs NE game this weekend!

    Big fan of Limited, I pulled my first HOF Monikers auto – Jim Brown

    Also one of Chris5784 best 3 box break was out of Limited – Shield 1/1, Base 1/1, AP Rookie Jersey Auto, that was a sick break.

    Thanks for 200th video!

  5. ok after some heavy searching i think i have found em all and put it together to make the phrase/word “limitless”! as in the possibilities of this product are limitless!! hope thats right, love these scavenger hunts! appreciate the contest, looks like another great product with a great checklist! looking forward to buyin some hopefully! thanks tracy!

  6. forgot to comment on a few cards that caught my eye, love the patch work on the osweilers!! as a qb collector i will need at least one to add to my pc, beautiful stuff!

  7. Oh, are the letters in order? For example (this is not any letters I found, just an example) if I found K, A, E, P, would they be in order that I would find them in or do I have to scramble them?

  8. Does the word spell “Limitless”? In Seattle here, so if I happen to be right and somehow win, any chance I could get the Wilson? 🙂

    Thanks for the contest!

  9. I do have a eye infection in one of my eyes so this was harder for me than usual I think the answer is Limited Rcs though. I hope iam right.

  10. After much searching, (going through the card galleries 6 times each haha) I have finally found the letters and the word: Limitless 🙂 BTW the cards look AWESOME, I really hope to win one 2-card lot!! 😀 Thanks!

  11. The hidden letters spell LIMITLESS, an accurate word to describe this beautiful set of cards. Can’t wait to grab some up

  12. Awesome product. I am super excited about Limited. I know the answer! With my one and only entry I am guessing: LIMITLESS
    Thanks again for the generous giveaway- Keep on doing a great job Panini:)

  13. I believe the answer is LIMITLESS. Thanks for the contest as always Tracy, I’m hoping to land the Sanu to send to my friend Adam J!

  14. The autos and Spotlights look terrific. I really like the rainbow color to them. That Namath is awesome!

    Answer: Limitless


    And if I can mouth off for a second, thanks again for running all these contests. Every time I scroll through a gallery hunting for some screwy image or other, I see some gorgeous cards, which makes me pick up a pack of Panini at the LCS, which makes me start collecting your sets – so marketing mission accomplished, but with an honest feeling of excitement and community. Panini is the best example I can think of of a company that uses the internet to build a loyal and happy customer/fan base. Thanks again, and congrats on the 200!

  16. Congrats on #200 guys!

    Thanks again for the contest!

  17. LIMITLESS is the word you are looking for. Do I need to name the cards I found the letters on or is the word good enough. Thanks for the contest.

  18. LOVE limited. Its looking better than ever. What could be better that all those orange hits! The Bengals Sanu Prime patch and the Osweiler Phenomes patch auto?

  19. Thanks again for another awesome contest. That Sanu is “LIMITLESS” by the way! So just in case you didn’t get my attempt at humor. Limitless is the answer.

    On a side note, you have me looking to hard at these cards. Did you notice the hello kitty on Bob Hayes just below the belt buckle. Give it a look, Panini America 2012 Limited Football QC (31).

  21. sweet ravens and patriots haul from the break, coincidentally one of the matchup this weekend.

    Scrambled up letters = limitless

    pretty tricky with the s and t

  22. This is insane. Well done Mr. Hackler! I have been killing myself for a couple hours and still only have 6 letters. Haha.

  23. I’m super excited about this contest-Tracy did you receive my entry? Or do I have to repost? Thanks again Panini for an awesome scavender hunt. I was not that hard:)

  24. Man, this time was hard. LIMITLESS is the word. Truly for this great product from Panini. I’ve checked the Broncos jerseys you sell. Amazing pieces. Congrats for the 200th time.

  25. Ok…so this one was a little difficult for me b/c my computer is out of commission right now so had to do this all by phone lol….not absolutely 100% POSITIVE on the word cuz I saw questionable letters that probably wetent really even there lol….but is the word “LIMITLESS?”

  26. This hunt is frustrating me!! I have 8 of 9 letters and 4 of 5 from the first gallery. I even know what the word is going to be, just cant find that last letter!! I still have an hour and a half to search…

  27. OK, just went through all the entries. Thanks to everyone for participating. The nine letters you were looking for were the ones that spelled “LIMITLESS.” Now as always, you guys and gals are awesome. Congrats to the five winners this time around: Kevin Pongrantz, Ryan (ryoni), Chris Krueger, Mal and Jeremy Offins. We’ll be in touch soon to get your addresses. Stay tuned, though. We’re going to select winners for the Unwrapped Crown Royale and Timeless Treasures contests next. Thanks again.

    1. Thanks again for the contest

      Tha Wilson jumbo patch is nasty and I think I’m going to put that set together. Hopefully I will see it again sometime soon lol

      Congrats to the Winners

  28. So awesome! Thanks for the contest again, these hunts are always so fun. I cant beleive I was picked and cant wait to see which cards I get!
    Cmon Russell Wilson and/or Ray Lewis! haha
