And the Winners Are: Panini America Gets Caught Up on Its Recent Contests

Between the National Sports Collectors Convention a few weeks ago and the upcoming NHLPA Rookie Showcase next week, we've been burning the candle at both ends inside the Panini America marketing department recently.

Between the National Sports Collectors Convention a few weeks ago and the upcoming NHLPA Rookie Showcase next week, we’ve been burning the candle at both ends inside the Panini America marketing department recently.

As a result, we’re a little behind in selecting winners from some our recent contests here on The Knight’s Lance. Today, we finally made it a point to get caught up.

It’s worth noting that two of the contests in question (the one awarding a handful of lucky collectors some of the highly sought after National wrapper-redemption packs and the always-popular Guess the Autograph shindig) received an overwhelming number of entries — thank you to everyone who participated — and required more time than usual to sort through.

In any event, after spending much of the day plugging entrant names into Random.org, we’re ready to announce the winners.

  • For the National contest, we received so many great responses that we decided to award seven lucky collectors with silver packs . . . and those collectors are Marty, Jerry Scoppa, JOEMLM, Kevin C, joshua milam, jp98 and Grid-Iron Gladiators.
  • And now, for the three winners (one grand prize and two runner-ups) from last Friday’s Guess the Autograph contest . . . congratulations to Mike Wagner, Samuel Breniman and Kollectornet. 

Finally, we lost all track of time and completely dropped the ball (or puck, in this case) on our Panini Unwrapped: 2010-11 Zenith Hockey contest. We’re still waiting on one photo but as soon as we get it, we will honor all the winners from that contest in a separate post.

Congratulations again to all of our winners. Your participation and support are what make all of this work and we’re grateful to have you.

(Oh, and winners, watch your email box for a message from us.)

  1. Wow, thanks Tracey and crew!!! I feel like I hit the lotto. lol Cannot wait to see what we all pull. Good luck to everyone. Thanks again, Marty

  2. Nice! Literally the day before my birthday, too. Thanks for running the contest, folks.

    And by the way, this was the most difficult “Guess the Auto” contest you’ve done by a wide margain, in my opinion. I had to do a ton of studying to figure out a few of those (like the Amendola).

  3. COngrats to all the winners! This is just another reason why Panini’s the best in the buisness!! Oh and Tracy, anymore Aaron Rodgers or Kevin Durant autos to preview??? Keep em coming!

  4. I always wondered how the Print Plates made it into circulation. There was a cool Dan Marino 1/1 2008 NT Black Plate Auto I wanted, but it sold for over $600 on eBay. I think it came from the National.

  5. Thanks for having the contest Tracy! I received the packs the other day and actually pulled a National Redemption for the Joe Thomas signed mini-helmet. I sent you an e-mail, let me know if I have a shot at getting it fulfilled.

    Thanks and have a great weekend!
