Panini America’s Week in Review

Yeah, I guess you could say we had a pretty busy seven days at The Knight's Lance. We had wall-to-wall Super Bowl coverage, an award-worthy Green Bay Packers collector, jaw-dropping galleries of upcoming Panini America products, celebrity box busts, a contest to reward one lucky collector with a 2010 Playoff Contenders Tim Tebow Rookie Ticket and an update on the…

‘Whose Autographs Arrived Today?’ Contest Answers Revealed, Winner Announced

OK, so last week we unveiled a "Whose Autographs Arrived Today?" contest and asked visitors to identify 12 unidentified autographs from that day's list of arrivals.
