This week everyone is planning for Thanksgiving. Spending time with family and eating plenty of food. But many also use this week for some strategizing.
Black Friday has essentially become a national holiday, planning store runs, waiting in front of stores in the wee hours of the morning and buying as many presents as people can fit in their cars.
Panini is making it a day for collectors as well.
The company began its Black Friday promotion last year as a way to get people into hobby shops. Stores are allowed to use Black Friday packs in way they want – just not selling them on their own.
The Black Friday packs include a base set, autographs, memorabilia cards and number of inserts.
Biz Markie, who was a guest DJ at Panini America’s VIP party at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention, also has a card.
Panini released a gallery of the cards in the Black Friday packs. Here’s a chance to check them out.
Contact your local hobby shop to see how they are participating in Panini’s Black Friday promotion.
