Just when you think Panini America's upcoming Black Friday national wrapper-redemption program can't possibly get more exciting, it does. With most of the country watching NFL action on another glorious Sunday, Panini America officials announced that they have added on-card autographs from Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to the program.
Just when you think Panini America’s upcoming Black Friday national wrapper-redemption program can’t possibly get more exciting, it does. With most of the country watching NFL action on another glorious Sunday, Panini America officials announced that they have added on-card autographs from Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to the program.
Tebow signed copies of two special cards for inclusion in Black Friday: His Pink Breast Cancer Awareness card from the upcoming 2011 Gridiron Gear Football release and the “Everything In Between” card Panini America produced for inclusion in specially marked copies of Tebow’s new documentary DVD.
Panini America also released the preliminary list of dealers who will be participating in Black Friday when the promotion kicks off on Friday. You can get your first look at the special Tebow cards and access the participating dealer list below.

Nothing for Canada?
Still holding a grudge over 1812, huh? =)
Anyone else having problems downloading the dealer list? I’m on an android phone so that may have something to do with it…

Also is there any Hockey in these packs?
Nothing in Canada??? More specifically montreal??? Online at least for those not able to go to a participating hobby store???
Yes, there will be an online component. We’ll have more details on the online portion on Monday.
Will there be a few more shops added to the list late Tracy? Because my local cardshop isnt on your list but the owner told me he was going to be included in it last week. Let me know if thats true. Its Chuck & Barbs Sports Cards Columbus OH. Thanks
Yes, we’re still waiting on a few distributors to submit their list of dealers. We hope to have more stores added to the list tomorrow.

Great promotion and some sick cards could be pulled!
The two LCSs nearest me both aren’t participating. They said that they have two much stock already and would have had to buy more just to get the packs. They want to sell what they have already. 🙁
I applaud this promotion! Very thoughtful and a great way to get me to buy some Panini!

Three Stars Sportscards in Roseville, MN will be participating. We will be posting more details on our Facebook page (facebook.com/ThreeStarsSportscards), so check us out there if you are in Minnesota!
Were the winners of the “Everything In Between” favorite moment contest on facebook contacted? It just seems odd that theres no mention anywhere of anyone winning… even if there were only a few winners.
Yes, sir. All winners have been contacted and many have already received their special autograph cards.
Excuse me Tracy, have the winners from the 2011 Absolute unwrapped break been chosen yet?
Any updates on Canadian Hobby shops?
You can see from the expo we are a decent size market up here and contrary to poular belief we collect more than just hockey!
It’s not up to Panini if Canada gets these packs or not. It’s up to your Local Card Shops to order certain NFL products from there distributors to get these packs if I understand the system correctly. I live 10 minutes from the border and Canadians are always at my LCS for the past 5 years, never seen them buy anything but hockey. Not saying some of you don’t collect football cards but I’m sure there’s not many.
Tracy, I hope you guys have some dummy cards in these packs as word is you can defiantly tell which ones have pylon cards. Just hope there isn’t to many greedy people. I know it’s nice to show off the hits but maybe this would have been better a surprise for your customers so the greedy minds didn’t start going to work to scam the system.
Besides that, I love the idea and it looks like you guys did a great job on these with awesome hits, Stuff like this gives me hope in you guys connecting with your customers more…. Thank You!
Ryan, it’s something we discussed and we anxiously await collectors feedback on the topic on Friday. Much like the comments about dealers selling the packs, we will be closely monitoring the situation and anything fishy reported will ensure some will not be invited back.
This is a valid point and we will continue to perfect this program as we go, but at the end of the day we have to be able to trust our business partners to do right by the end consumer.
Scott’s Collectibles, Kannapolis NC will have Black Friday Packs available, we will also be giving away some 5×7 Armanti Edwards 2010 Prestige Photos as well. Store is located at 831 Cloverleaf Plaza, Kannapolis NC 28083. We are in the Cloverleaf shopping center, next to Blackbuster Video, right off I-85 , Exit 58.
Thanks to those who are planning on coming in and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
We are ALL closely monitoring the situation, including the CEO and VP of Marketing…
Thank you Scott. We do appreciate you keeping us updated with concerns we have.
I’m sure you guys will learn a lot from this promotion and I hope you continue to do things like this for us. It’s making the collecting community feel appreciated. Somehow that has gotten lost by other companys….
Our goal for a long time was to bring this to the hobby shops, so I’m glad we were finally able to accomplish this. Promotions my name and learning is my game, let’s see what shakes out…
great addition for the wrapper redemption promotion,
