If you missed any of this weekend’s wall-to-wall coverage of the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere right here on The Knight’s Lance, well, you missed a lot. So just in case you did, we’ve compiled all of our links from the blockbuster event below so you can relive all of the excitement one more time — or as many times as you’d like.
This post will also serve as an official contest notification. After all, we acquired a handful of autographed Rookie Inscriptions Personal Edition cards over the last few days for the express purpose of giving them to you, our loyal customers. How, exactly, are we going to do that? Keep reading to find out.

First, here’s a quick rundown of our must-see coverage:

Panini America’s Action-Packed Saturday at the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere
Now, to the contest. Look, it’s no secret that next to the Rated Rookie T-shirts Panini America unveiled over the weekend, perhaps nothing else generated as much buzz during the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere as the return of the acetate technology on the autographed Rookie Inscriptions. And your chance to one is as simple as this:

  1. Like the Panini America Facebook page
  2. Follow the Panini America Twitter account
  3. Subscribe to The Knight’s Lance by clicking the “Sign me up!” button in the top right corner
  4. Leave a comment to this post letting us know you’ve done all three of those things (if you’ve done all three things prior to this contest, there’s no need to do them again. Just let us know with a comment)

On Friday, we’ll do a random drawing of all eligible participants and award 15 of these beauties. (For the record, the winner of last Thursday’s Robert Griffin III Inscriptions card is Christina L. Rivers.)
Oh, and just to make sure we have some new content to accompany the recap links, below you’ll find a gallery showcasing just some of the on-card autographs we acquired Saturday, including the multi-signed marvel known as Pen Pals and an assortment of cards you’ll find in the upcoming 2012 Prestige Football release. Enjoy — and good luck in the contest.

  18. Tracy,
    This is awesome, I have been doing all the following for quite some time now, but I cannot wait for more Tannehill this year as you know. That Tannehill, Egnew, and Miller triple Pen Pals is very cool, I will looking for that card for sure. Keep up the great work.

  19. Hey Tracy…I have been a Facebook like for 3 years now. A subscriber of over a year..but I don’t have a Twitter account. I won’t lie to try to enter one of these sweet cards. I am too honest for that. I really want in on this contest(aiming for RG3 or Andrew Luck. Not that Wilson wouldn’t be bad).

  30. Happy to do all three but I actually thought I was but turned out I forgot about Twitter. I’d love to win the contest, and being a life-long (nearly 50 years) Redskins fan, I’m super excited to see what RGIII can do. I’m really looking forward to the upcoming season!

  31. Just opened a twitter account for you! So, done, done, and done. Thanks for the contest and again, I’d LOVE a Rated Rookie shirt!!!

  33. — The Hat Trick has been complete for awhile because I’m a Big Fan!!!
    — Thanks for the contest and for all of the “Sneak Peeks” on the upcoming Products
    — 2012 Football can’t come soon enough!!!!

  34. Already did all three! Thanks for the contest! Panini, you guys really stpped up your game with the photoshopped NFL Jerseys on the rookies, and the clear cards are simply worth drooling over!

  35. Hope Im not too Late for the contest Tracy! Ive been away from the computer for a few days, but did catch the rookie premier and it looked great. Sign me down for the contest, would love to win a shirt or one of those great cards, havent won anything ever! Nice stuff though man!

    1. Nope, you’re not too late. Got you in. We’ll select the winners on Friday. Thanks to you — and to everyone — for participating. Panini America customers are the best.

  36. The cards look awesome. i been collecting for years. There isn’t a Hobby Shop were I live . I live in in a small town Harlan ,KY. I have to buy my cards at Wal-Mart and if i am lucky to pull a auto it is a no name. But i wish i could win a RG3 auto. That would be such a rush. That i have not experienced in a long time. Hate to give a sob story , but i would love to have a auto of a top popular player. Thanks for producing great cards. Got my fingers crossed.

  37. Absolutely did all three. The cards look GREAT Panini! Hopefully you got some 2012 Score rookie cards signed! I love Score and every single year I keep saying “This hobby NEEDS affordable products that kids can buy! Even $3 is a bit steep for a single pack of cards! And $400 is just freaking outrageous for only 7 cards!” I know, that $400 pack of 7 cards is one of those OTHER guys 😉
    Even if you aren’t giving away any Score cards in this giveaway, I’d still LOOOOOVE any one of the other ones! Huzzah!

  38. Forgot to mention that I already do all of the following and such via email – Facebook – and twitter. Please include me!

  39. Hey Tracy I was wondering were do u look to see the winners of the contest or will u be notifying the winners?

    1. Winners were selected late this afternoon and notifications will be sent tomorrow. We’ll also post a list of the winners as a comment to this post. Thanks to everyone for participating and for your patience.

  40. I haven’t received an email notification about winning, if you win, post back and let everyone know what you receive. This is great stuff Panini! Keeping the hobby going!

    1. I got a notification this morning that I was one of the winners. 🙂 I’ll be sure to post back what I get and with a picture. 😀
