When collectors finally get the chance next week to begin ripping open Panini America's 2013 Black Friday packs, they'll delight at the updated twists on several longstanding promotional drivers such as Tools of the Trade memorabilia cards, player-worn Santa hats, game-used NFL Breast Cancer Awareness football cards and much more. But it's the striking imagery and dynamic design of the set's 20 Panini Collection inserts that once again will provide the set's emotional core.

But it’s the striking imagery and dynamic design of the set’s 20 Panini Collection inserts that once again will provide the set’s emotional core.
A Black Friday-exclusive insert since Panini America started the game-changing promotion three years ago, the Panini Collection places a premium on the trademark poses and emotions of some of the sports world’s biggest stars. This year’s iteration — which is paralleled by both Cracked Ice and Lava Flow versions — features the likes of Yasiel Puig, Andrew McCutchen, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Damian Lillard, J.J. Watt, Colin Kaepernick, Andrew Luck, Jonathan Toews and even DJ Kool, the official DJ of Panini Ameica.
Below is a compelling sneak peek at the complete 20-card Panini Collection insert. Enjoy — and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2013 Black Friday.

Really guys… Tebow still being featured?!? He has not been on a team for how long now and is still be included in sets?
Tebow’s tops on our list and hope to include him as long as he continues to be heavily collected…
Not as popular as u might think and if he “tops” your list somebody isn’t paying attention
As an avid Tebow fan, I have no issues with including him in any set. He is a lightning rod of a player, no question about it. But one of the reasons he’s such a lightning rod is because he has such a tremendous fan base who love collecting his cards. I didn’t have a say on whether he would be in Black Friday this year, but when Scott told me he would be (and when he told me what image we were using), I was stoked. It’s a poignant image that captures Tebow’s brief — but eventful — time in New England.
No Super Bowl Pylon Pieces, come on those have to be coming back, they are a staple of the set
Sorry Joe, not this time around but hopefully we will get them back in there soon…
AHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOO (I might have just shed a tear, seriously)
Alright Tracy before we get started on the new stuff, this is my one chance to see if anyone out there can help me on pieces iam missing for my past Black Friday Sets or just anything missing in general soooo is it ok if I post my bucket link, so everyone can copy and paste it and my email, which again I give you permission to do, so if anyone does they can get a hold of me?

You know I always love looking at your stuff!
LOL thank you, I appreciate it very much, I still have to get all of it in the bucket. I do appreciate the appreciation my collection does get though, From everyone that says anything.
Puig should be doing a bat flip.
Definitely liking the mccutchen base card. the color pops nice with his “street clothes” as a huge collector of mccutchen i cant wait for these to be released so i get a chance to snatch one up! great design as always!
Love the McCutchen! The MVP can rock the flannel shirt and make it look good!

Great job with this set again this year, it’s definitely an attention-getter, Thanks Tracy and Scott!
Tracy and Scott, we need to do a feature again soon, I can show you guys all my additions and hopefully get some help from some fellow Panini collectors and maybe find some missing pieces.
very sick detail to the cards
Those cards look great fellas! Great pics of greats showing passion and emotion or just plain intimidation. Plus having the players silhouetted on a darker background really pulls out the colors in the uniforms. Nice touch!
Glad you like them, man. Appreciate the kind words.
Will the cracked ice cards be returning/ Those were some amazing cards to look at in person!
Awesome news! Can’t wait to get out and crack open some packs!
Very cool looking set..the one thing that always disappoints me is no NYG cards in the set..
