The Twitter-obliterating sensation that is #PaniniWildCard began two weeks ago during the NFL's wildcard playoff weekend -- and through two solid days generated true hobby hysteria earmarked by unmatched engagement from the best collectors on the planet, smiles aplenty and more than 30 free boxes of Panini America NFL trading cards as prizes to lucky winners.
The Twitter-obliterating sensation that is #PaniniWildCard began two weeks ago during the NFL’s wildcard playoff weekend — and through two solid days generated true hobby hysteria earmarked by unmatched engagement from the best collectors on the planet, smiles aplenty and more than 30 free boxes of Panini America NFL trading cards as prizes to lucky winners.
But during last weekend’s divisional round of the NFL playoffs, we switched things up a bit by asking collectors to Tweet us pics of them getting creative with our cards. Once again, our loyal fans and collectors way exceeded expectations. From flawless card-chitecture to witty wordplay to game predictions to bona fide works of cardboard art, Panini America collectors proved for the umpteenth time their talent, their passion and their dedication with some of the best Tweets we’ve received since, well, ever.
The result: Our collectors won more boxes (at least one per quarter during all four games) and the #PaniniWildCard hash tag trended — again. Here are just some of the creative Tweets that filled the @PaniniAmerica timeline with merriment, memories and flat-out fun last weekend:

Panini is awesome!!!! That is all….
Wow that’s sweet! Too bad I don’t have a twitter:( Is it possible for events like this to be posted on ther blog too? So twitterless participants may enter as well? Thanks again-
Good call, I have asked for that often!
Likewise here from another non-tweeter.
Like seeing Panini Unwrapped make the cut…hope Keith has no hard feelings 😉
No hard feelings at all. He got a good chuckle out of it.
Thought my creativity for that one would work since that Knights Lance post was earlier in the week.
Also, my favorite that cracks me up everytime I see it has to be the Tim Tebow one. The one featured above. Funny stuff
Guys just get a twitter account..you don’t have to have followers or tweet if u don’t want. I only use it for sports info and contests such as this for the most part. There’s nothing to setting up an account. But your not only missing out on this contest but tons of other SportsCard giveaways. Just sign up. Your missing out.
