Panini Previews Industry Summit Black Boxes



 By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Media

The 2015 Industry Summit is just days away and Panini America will once again be providing attendees with their popular Black Boxes which have been a show staple for over a decade.

Once the company finishes its corporate address to the crowd next Tuesday, they will be handing out these hobby treasures out and the content inside is sure to generate some excitement among recipients and collectors. This afternoon, Panini previewed some of the base Private Signings cards along with some other the other content that will be popping out of boxes.

What else can attendees expect to find in their Black Boxes? Check out a gallery after the jump.


Drawing from the worlds of baseball, basketball and football, Black Boxes could potentially contain some Dual Autographs along with autographed memorabilia cards. There are also specially stamped one-of-one memorabilia cards from previously-released products that could be pulled.

Additionally, each Black Box will have a five-card pack of exclusive 2014-15 Prizm Basketball Green Mojo Prizm cards and a gallery may follow in the next few days.

    Panini America’s Black Box has always been an amazing incentive for attending The Summit. This year’s Black Box looks to be The BEST Ever.

    But for me, the best part of The Summit is the opportunity to discuss important issues with industry leaders.

    The Black Box has always rubbed me the wrong way. They make fantastic, rare, valuable cards that the end buyers of their products can’t get. And a retailer shouldn’t need incentive like this to purchase Panini product or attend the Summit. These autos, patches, 1/1s and green prisms should go in packs to the people who shell out big money to open their product.

    Do you think there will be talk about who might pick up the Nascar/Indy car card production or will they just let the Nascar racing cards just be dropped out of site?

    Black Box with sticker autos LOL????? And people pay big money for this stuff on secondary market???

    How is it a private signing if the players didn’t even see the card they sign for, but instead just signing a sheet of 50 sticker autos and the manufacture stuck it to a card????

    I wonder if I can get a player to sign one of those sticker and then I can put it on a football and call it a signed football $$$$$$?
