2015 Panini Black Friday promo card details


2015 Panini Black Friday Base

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

They have a far different appeal than a cheap TV or a blowout price on a new pair of pants, but the 2015 Panini Black Friday promo cards bring a lot of variety, unique memorabilia and other surprises.

The promo set, which has become an annual tradition over the last few years, returns with a new look, some fresh rookies and more.

Available exclusively at hobby shops that are part of the Panini Roundtable program, each 2015 Panini Black Friday pack has two cards.

The base set features 24 players covering basketball, football and baseball. Complimenting these are 26 rookies that are numbered to 599.

Among the inserts is Panini Collection. These cards are dedicated to strong photography.

2015 Panini Black Friday also has a couple of other basic inserts. College Legends takes advantage of Panini’s NCAA license that kicked in earlier this year. Rated Rookies are also randomly inserted.

One of the most notable parts of Panini’s promo sets are the memorabilia cards. Usually, pieces used in these special products come from different sorts of items tied to special events and photo shoots. 2015 Panini Black Friday keeps up with this tradition. Headbands, towels and Christmas hats are among the things collectors can expect.

Themed memorabilia sets include Breast Cancer Awareness, Salute to Service, Happy Holidays and Tools of the Trade.

Autographs are also included in several spots. Rookies like Kris Bryant, Jameis Winston, Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Williams and Marcus Mariota all have signed cards in the promo set.

The promo set has a print run of 40,000 total packs. Individual shops may have different ways of distributing packs both usually it’s tied to the purchase of certain boxes.

    Panini America’s Black Friday Promotion is the most compelling promotion in the Hobby. Every year, Black Friday Packs give collectors new and innovative cards that will later show up in Panini products.

    There are over 500 hobby shops. Limited to only 40,000 packs means an average of less than 80 packs per hobby shop. I can’t wait to see what 2015 Panini Black Friday packs have to offer.
