The Triumphant Return of Panini America’s ‘Whose Autographs Arrived Today?’ Contest

December 14, 2010

In the almost two months since we launched The Knight’s Lance, we’ve produced several posts that have been popular with the blog’s loyal readers. From behind-the-scenes looks at the trading card process that you just won’t get anywhere else to the first video breaks of Panini America‘s best products, we seem to have struck a chord with today’s collectors.

But far and away the most popular post of them all so far has been the orignal ‘Whose Autograph Arrived Today?’ contest that challenged readers to accurately guess the identities of a handful of Panini America’s recent autograph arrivals in the name of winning prizes.

 Look, we’re no dummies. If it’s guess-the-autograph contests you crave, it’s guess-the-autograph contests you will get — at least one a month for the forseeable future.

So here we go again . . .

Below are 14 mostly unidentified autographs that arrived at Panini America headquarters this week. Most of them are slated for inclusion in future Panini America products; some of them fulfill an outstanding redemption. Your job is to identify them.

Simply provide your answers as a comment to this post. We’ll give contestants a week to respond and the person who identifies the most autographs correctly will win a Panini prize package that includes three certified autograph trading cards (one each from the NFL, NBA and NHL) and a box of 2010 Panini America trading cards.

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

Now as always, good luck and thanks for participating.
