There's still so much left to cover regarding Panini America's grand plans for this week's 2012 Black Friday promotion and not nearly enough time to cover it. So we're going to engage in some meaningful multitasking for this particular post. First, we're going to cover iCollectPanini.com's role in Black Friday. After that, we're going to preview more autograph and memorabilia cards made exclusively for Black Friday.
There’s still so much left to cover regarding Panini America’s grand plans for this week’s 2012 Black Friday promotion and not nearly enough time to cover it. So we’re going to engage in some meaningful multitasking for this particular post. First, we’re going to cover iCollectPanini.com’s role in Black Friday. After that, we’re going to preview more sweet autograph and memorabilia cards produced exclusively for Black Friday.
Just as we did last year, we’ve had many collectors ask how they can get involved in the Black Friday phenomenon if there are no participating brick-and-mortar hobby shops in their area. Well, just like last year, we’ve got you covered. Starting now and until supplies last, collectors who purchase selected products on iCollectPanini.com will receive the equivalent number of 2012 Black Friday packs with their order.
You can get complete details by visiting the iCollectPanini.com 2012 Black Friday page. So you have two ways to participate: Visit one of the participating hobby shops in the list we published earlier today, or visit iCollectPanini.com by clicking the image below.
Now, let’s get to today’s gallery, which includes some downright fascinating player-worn memorabilia cards and autographs that greatly enrich the 2012 Black Friday promotion. Some of the finer points about what you’re about to see:
- The oversized Gordie Howe memorabilia cards incorporate pieces of the special jersey Panini America officials had made exclusively for Mr. Hockey to wear during the 2012 NHL All-Star Game to announce his relationship with the company.
- The oversized Kobe Bryant memorabilia cards incorporate pieces of the Black Mamba’s game-worn warm-ups.
- The Harrison Barnes and Jared Sullinger event-worn shoe cards incorporate the pair of shoes each young superstar wore all day during the 2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot.
- The oversized jersey cards featuring Kyrie Irving, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Andy Dalton, Cam Newton and Jake Locker feature pieces of jerseys each young superstar donned at their respective NFLPA Rookie Premiere or Rookie Transition Program.
- As for the splendid ensemble of patch autographs, including several powerfully pink NFL “Crucial Catch” patches, well, the handiwork should speak for itself.
So enjoy what promises to be one the final pre-promotion previews below. But by all means, stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for complete coverage of 2012 Black Friday madness.

Awesome stuff. Seems like the hits never end!
I’m super amaze!
Love the shoe card!
I don’t believe I have seen one in person!
This is really going to be exciting!
Unbelievable product Tracy!
Is there any chance for international collectors to be part of the black friday promotion?
What Chris said, don’t want to wreck my computer by drooling all over it lol.
Why are request like that being ignored?
No really close local card shops, so thanks for doing online component. Order placed! Thanks!!
A little sad there aren’t more qualifying products like Threads basketball, or Prime Signatures football. Oh, well. In for 4 boxes.
I only wish I could get my hands on one of those beauties particularly the Howes’.
Great gallery! Thank you Panini for making Black Friday exciting for us collectors!! Keep up the great work as always!
Can’t wait till friday. Quick question… i see a black friday printing plate already listed on ebay (with blank back). Are these 1/1 or like the national, where there are 5 of each color?
Those are the progressions like we produced for the National. Not 1/1s.
Saw a HOLIDAY Trent Richardson swatch on ebay. Cool idea. With all of the previews, I didn’t think I could be surprised, but I was. Hopefully my order will come on Friday. It’ll be a nice way to unwind after some fierce Black Friday shopping!
Those are pretty awesome. We’ll have a little expanded gallery on those gems later today.
Just wondering. I placed my order yesterday morning early (with 2 day delivery) but I haven’t heard anything. Should I be concerned?
No need to be concerned.
