ROSEMONT, Ill. — Chicago-area collector Dan Piehl was just stopping by the Panini America booth on Friday at the 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention to say “hello” and to meet some of the folks behind the company’s products.
Seconds later, the basketball-geared hobbyist who focuses on Karl Malone, was center stage between Panini America’s Tracy Hackler and Scott Prusha for a special on-location episode of Panini Unwrapped starring high-end heavyweight 2010-11 National Treasures Basketball.
The best part? Piehl got to keep the contents of his box.

nice alonzo mourning patch card. Love the Gary Payton and Wesley Johnson pulls too. Legends autos are sweet!
Wow! Bryant Redemption is a nice pull! This guy must have loved the chance to be there for the box break! Those are some beautiful looking cards!
That’s awesome!!! very cool for him! Thanks for sharing! Those are some pretty sweet shirts you 3 are wearing!!
Looks amazing, especially like the design of the ABA Legends. The Payton auto is pretty sick too.
Man, these MMA-similar Panini Shirts you guys are wearing are looking great!!

Awesome looking cards, like the quality of the auto’s and jerseys. Great job Panini, you guys rock.
‘National Treasures’ looks great this year. Beautiful pull on that Turner.
That’s quite the luck collector.

Nicely done. The best duo in box breaks online. I didn’t see much shaky hands from the other guy!

That Dan Piehl guy is one SEXY STUD!!! Feel free to feature him more often. Thanks Panini America- I know he was thrilled to participate and leave with collectibles!!
Awesome! Glad he had a good time. He was a great sport about it.
I cannot thank the guys at Panini for not only letting me open the box, but actually keeping the cards. I am blown away by your products. Thank you again.
Thank you for stopping by and for the kind words, Dan. It was nice to meet you and bust a few boxes with you.
I got a Mikan jersey from my Treasures box, my first piece ever, definitely PC!
Nice Cards over there!
Sweet break! I haven’t very many breaks from the National, but I would have to say this is the best one yet.
The ABA Legends autos are awesome, one of your best sets to date.
Again, once in a lifetime!!!

Nice Stuff. Wish I were there. Is it too early to get geeked up for next year?
It’s never too early!
I would love to get my husband one of those sweet Panini t-shirts for his birthday. Where can I get one?
