Just a quick PSA for those out there.
I’ve noticed a lot of people like to get on Panini’s behind for some of their design choices across a number of products. I understand some of their arguments, but now is your chance to be heard.
Votes will pick the design of an 2011-12 NBA Hoops insert set.
You can read the article and place your vote:
Now if only Panini had a “Design A Card” contest. I know a ton of people who would enjoy that and could see some awesome designs. For the record, Press Pass a few years ago had a “Design A Card” contest on Sports Card Forum and Trader Retreat that went off pretty well. I’d like to see Panini step up and bring this back. Panini could pick a low end product or a product they want to revitalize their designs. They could have their collectors design a card as part of a contest to have it featured in a set. The winner could get their design featured plus a box of that product. The back of the card could even have a blurb about the design in small print. The voting process could be done by Panini designers and the faces of marketing, or it could be a public vote. Not only do I think it would be great for marketing by Panini, it would shut up some of the people who dislike every design Panini puts out there.
Scott and Tracy, don’t miss this opportunity.
