The Triumphant Return of Panini America’s Popular “Guess the Autograph” Contest

October 26, 2012

In the process of celebrating The Knight’s Lance turning 2 years old last week, we asked our loyal readers some poll questions and also for some of your favorite posts from the last two years. True to form, the greatest fans and customers on the planet came through once again with some tremendous feedback.

One of the many things I learned through the process: You guys and gals absolutely love — and miss — Panini America’s occasional “Guess the Autograph” contests. So, for starters, let me apologize for not having run one since April. Secondly, the next contest starts . . . now.

Below are 20 mostly unidentified autographs from the worlds of baseball, basketball, football and hockey (all from recent on-card arrivals coming soon to a Panini America trading card product near you). Your job is to identify them.

Simply provide your answers as a comment to this post. We’ll give you through Sunday to get your answers in and the person who identifies the most autographs correctly will win a Panini America prize package that includes a box of 2012-13 Threads Basketball, a box of 2012 Gridiron Football and a few autographed trading cards from a sport of the winner’s choice.

(In the event of a tie, one winner will be drawn at random from all correct entries received. We’ll wait until the contest ends to approve all submissions and select the winner; no need to let everyone see everyone else’s answers.)

You have until 11:59 p.m. (CST) Sunday, October 28, to get your entries in. Now as always, good luck and thanks for participating.
