Faked out by Panini, 2011 Threads
Yesterday I was at our local busting some hockey with friends and then thought I would try some 2011 Threads as that product has been very good to me.

Picked out some packs and started ripping.

I thought I had for me a major hit. I rippped open the back and started moving the top card on down and BINGO, what do I see but one of the greatest coaches in the history of football. I am getting a coat card of Knute Rockne.

This is the card

In my excitement of seeing "the Rock" I didn't notice that the swatch is only a picture of a swatch. That is all, only a picture.

Talk about getting faked out by Panini! Talk about feeling stupid!

That darned Panini; always up to some sort of shenanigans.



Give them some pay back. Send them a picture of you LOOKING at their products, but really buying Topps.

Just a picture of the swatch, not a thread of cloth from Threads.
