First things first: Happy New Year from all of us at Panini America. Thanks to you (the greatest fans and collectors on the planet), we enjoyed a simply sensational 2012 and have hit the ground running to ensure an even better 2013. But we’ve yet to run our first contest of the new year. That changes today.
You see that sweet image of Andrew Luck’s War Room autographed memorabilia card from next week’s release of 2012 Absolute Football at the top of this post? Yeah, the one with one Luck card appearing to float over five others. Take a good long look at it and remember what it looks like. In just a bit, we’re going to send you on a wild scavenger hunt through some of this week’s most popular galleries posted on The Knight’s Lance in search of it.
All the while, Panini America officials have been diligently putting the finishing touches on another standout product that goes live today: The 2012 USA Baseball National Teams Box Set, a robust release with a definite dynamite-comes-in-small-packages dynamic that should create quiet a bang for patient, passionate USA Baseball collectors.
TORONTO, Ontario — Day 2 at the 2012 Toronto Fall Expo started with the Panini America team arriving to a line of sports collectors and autograph seekers wrapped all the way around the International Centre. The scene here has become synonymous with what has simply become one of the most fantastic sports card and memorabilia shows north of the U.S. border. Of course, Panini America has been here every step of the way to capture the event from start to finish.
TORONTO, Ontario — The Panini America team arrived in Toronto earlier this week ready to rock the 2012 Toronto Fall Expo — and that’s exactly what it did on Friday’s first day as the company’s always-popular wrapper-redemption program created instant buzz and excitement, offering wanting collectors more variety and bigger hits than usual.
One of the many things we learned through the process: You guys and gals absolutely love — and miss —Panini America’s occasional “Guess the Autograph” contests. In our continuing effort to give you more of what you want, we’re back with our second contest in two weeks — this one dedicated to the rookies, stars and legends of the NBA.
Can’t make it to Canada for this week’s 2012 Toronto Fall Expo that begins in earnest tomorrow? Don’t fret. Now, as always, Panini America and iCollectPanini.com have you covered. Starting today, collectors who purchase select products on iCollectPanini.com will receive the same wrapper-redemption packs that will be distributed this weekend at the Toronto Fall Expo.
Today, we’re asking you to take part in another short, sweet two-question survey that follows. We’d appreciate greatly you taking a few minutes to answer the following questions about your general collecting habits. Tomorrow, we’ll select two random Knight’s Lance subscribers who took the survey to win a box of 2012-13 Threads Basketball.
