2012 Panini Black Friday – Be There.

After the wildly successful Black Friday promotion from Panini last year, it is only natural they would bring back the promotion for collectors once again this year. And because of that success, if your local card shop sells Panini products, they are probably going to get involved this year if they haven’t in the past.

All the big hits and rewards of going to your local shop for Black Friday has returned this year with the Panini Black Friday packs. With a great looking base set, an awesome insert set, and some sweet surprises for collectors, one can see why it will be successful once again.

So get out to your local card shop before these packs dry up once again this year. You won’t want to be left in the dust.

Andrew Luck’s First Autographed Colts Cards Hitting eBay

Andrew Luck’s first autographed Colts cards are hitting eBay and they are already getting some nice, fat bids associated with them.

Panini’s 2012 Father’s Day promotion features these first cards of the year, kind of strange that it comes from promotional packs, but that’s going to make these even hotter as they are harder to find.

These are the first cards featuring Andrew Luck in his new Colts uniform. Topps has come out with a set along with several non-NFL licensed products but none have Luck in the horseshoe. That puts a bit of a premium on these cards and you can already see from the prices on eBay.

His plain rookies numbered to 499 are going between $30 and $40 while one of his first Colts autographs has three days left and is already over $200.

Our friend over at FieldLevelView even pulled one of the first Andrew Luck Cracked Ice parallels which are non-numbered but limited to just 25 copies. It isn’t autographed, but it’s definitely one of the highlights of the Father’s Day promotion and is a pretty sweet looking card. I featured it on our post about Panini Father’s Day 2012.

Make sure you head to your local card shop this weekend to see if they are part of Panini’s promotion and get your chance to pull some of these beauties.
