Of course, Panini America's Black Friday extravaganza wouldn't be nearly as successful without the support and participation of the almost 400 shops across North America that have signed up to run the promotion this year. This year's shop total easily surpasses last year's mark and should make for another record-setting shopping day in the hobby.
We’re now just hours away from kicking off Panini America’s 2012 Black Friday promotion in hobby shops across the country. Following months of product development and weeks of finger-licking previews, the time is fast approaching to celebrate one of the industry’s most popular in-store promotions.
Of course, the Black Friday extravaganza wouldn’t be nearly as successful without the support and participation of the almost 400 shops across North America that have signed up to run the promotion this year. This year’s shop total easily surpasses last year’s mark and should make for another record-setting shopping day in the hobby.
Below is the preliminary list of participating dealers. We’ll update this list with any last-minute additions as more confirmations come in. And if you don’t see a dealer in your area on this list, don’t worry. We’ll have complete details later today on how to participate in Black Friday online at iCollectPanini.com.

Can never figure out why we always get left off the list ?????
Not sure how, either. Do you go through Universal? If you’re participating, please shoot me your details and I’ll add you to the list.
Glad your doing online to..nobody within 100 miles from me. Thank you!
My lcs is participating in the promo. I love it. I think its a win for everyone involved. Tracy I also wanted to thank you for all your hard work. I’ve been impressed by all the info I’ve gotten from here since joining the site. Thanks for all you do in improving the hobby.
Really appreciate that, Geoff. Thanks for signing up. We appreciate having you.
I looked at the online selection of cards for the promo..is that going to be the only sets available to buy in order to get the packs? Not that it’s bad, wish there were more options. I think Score Hockey is going to be very popular this year with its price..lol
I love when you guys give us these lists it lets me enjoy two of my favorite things, sports cards and sorting data in excel!
Also glad to see all my local shops are participating
Looks like I’m in for an adventure on Friday, trying to find this Alternate Universe in New Haven, CT. Thanks for posting the list Tracy!
How much do you have to spend to get a pack?
Each participating shop typically runs the promotion a little differently. The packs, though, are available via a wrapper-redemption program.
The Newstand in Decatur Il usually participates don’t they?
Is the only way to get some packs online by ordering the boxes listed? and how many packs do you get per box you order…Also if anyone knows of a lcs near Kennewick Wa 99336 that I’m not familiar with plz let me know as I cant find one that is less than a 2 1/2 hour drive from me…Thanks
Hello; Mr. Tracy..Can you let me know the answers to my questions when you get a chance..If your not to busy..Thanks
Yeah, the online portion of the program at iCollectPanini.com includes detailed redemption specs as it relates to each product. The number of packs you get varies depending on the product your purchase. Hope that helps.
I’m with you, Mark. I live in the Tri-Cities and recently started enjoying the hobby again. Autos and Jersey, short run series and 1/1’s have me hooked again! It’s only through business travel and online sales that I have been able to get my cards.
Please put up an PDF of the list the link u gave is not supported on some mobile devices.
Just added a PDF version of the list.
Why, again, Why…I thought this was suppose to be a Friday promotion. Check out all the cards on Ebay. There are stores that attempt to run this the correct way. Guess what, does anyone at Panini really care??? It happened last year and is happening again this year. We wonder why this hobby is in the state that it is in.
Obviously, We care a great deal about this, Jeff. It’s some we take very seriously because When something like this happens, it impacts all of us. We are working to determine those responsible and there will be consequences.
We are all in here at Funtime Sports Cards in Cincinnati!! Thanks so much Panini for doing this promotion once again! Hoping our customers pull some big MOJO!! Lol.
Have a great Turkey Day everyone!
Sports Cards Plus of San Antonio HAS 1320 Panini America Black Friday Packs. Our Address is 2239 Lockhill-Selma Rd, San Antonio, Texas 78230. Phone 210-524-2337. Come on in and have some fun. WE ARE NOT ON THE LIST.

Tracy Have Yourself and your family a Safe and joyous Thanksgiving!!!
If I buy on icollectpanini will the Black Friday packs be mailed out with the boxes this year or 2-4 weeks later like last year?
They’ll be mailed out with your order.
Can you buy just the Black Friday packs?I figure not,but doesnt hurt to ask..Thanks
Funny…ah but no.
Thanks for the list! Looking forward to it!
Thanks for the list. This is my very first year of collecting cards. Tracy, how do you get the black friday promotion packs from your local LCS?
Each participating dealer runs variations on the wrapper-redemption program. You buy selected Panini America products from them to qualify to receive the Black Friday packs.
Ok. Thanks so much 🙂
no stores in toronto have them but i did make an online purchase your site!
I’m at Alternate Universe in New Haven CT with one of the owners and he has NO IDEA about the promotion! Please remove them from the list as they DO NOT have any! Wasted trip for me!
Tracy I was using this list to look up a so called local shop that was taking part in this….well. It’s not a card shop, it’s a guy’s house? Grand Slam Cards 801 Pikeview Street, Dresden, Tn 38225?
