Contest Winners Picked; Black Friday Packs Still Available at

I'm not complaining. The exercise kept reminding me just how great our customers, collectors, fans and friends are.

  4. How did i not win when i was one of two that actually followed the instructions. Not 1 single winner did this contest correct. You were to pick the cards below and to the left not say which card the picture was on

    1. Entrants were to find the card image with the hidden picture and provide the name of that image as their entry. In the rotating gallery, the image name often appears below and to the left of the actual image.

I went and saw my auntie ( Tia Ballenia ) today and she asked me if we had won something I told her “Na we didn’t,” then she said “card collecting is like a box of chocolates ya never know what you are going to get.” I responded hey “Tia your like the Forest Gump of the collecting world” and then se said “no I’m your aunt,” man I almost bust a gut, even in the midst of battling breast cancer she still has never lost that sence of humor. Panini thanks for the opportunity that you guys can only can deliver. All the best to you and to all. Congrats to all the winners.

    Love the work you and Panini do for the industry. The behind the scenes and previews of upcoming products are always a pleasure to see, and then to tear open a pack to see it in person – awesome. Congrats to all the winners!

  20. Thanks Tracy! The box just arrived yesterday. I got the package containing Larry Bird patch, Harrison Barnes autograph and Jon Leuer autograph.
