Panini America will also be holding one special National Treasures Drawing each day Thursday through Sunday for those purchasing boxes of Treasures. For every box that is opened at the booth, they will be entered into a drawing at the end of the day for a black box. Panini will be awarding five black boxes a day, each with a 1-of-1 and other autograph or memorabilia cards. The grand prize each day will be an item from Panini Authentic, and collectors must be present to win.
The base set for this year’s show will incorporate 19 superstars from the worlds of basketball, football, hockey and entertainment using a modified 2011 Donruss Elite Football design. The base set will be accompanied by three different parallels (numbered to 25, 10 and 5), including some autographs.
In addition, there are three insert sets including a 10-card Rated Rookie insert set, an eight-card School Colors insert and a two-card Headliners insert honoring the Super Bowl and Stanley Cup exploits of the Green Bay Packers and Boston Bruins.
