Panini America is bringing back its Black Friday Promotion.
The day after Thanksgiving is arguably the biggest shopping day of the year with people filling up on turkey and then heading out to the mall.
But Panini wants collectors to go to local card shops as well.
The Black Friday wrapper redemption packs will be given away based on the Panini product a customer buys. The company will be vigilant on how these cards will be distributed and if it sees any unauthorized use (such as selling packs on eBay), the LCS will forfeit their Panini Authorized status.
No word on what is going to be inside the Black Friday packs, but Panini is sure to make that announcement soon.
UPDATE: The following products must be purchased new for the LCS to be included in the promotion. The card shops are allowed to use the Black Friday packs to promote any Panini products.
Here are the products included in the Black Friday promotion.
Football: 2012 Rookies & Stars, 2012 Momentum, 2012 Prominence.
Basketball: 2012-13 Prestige, 2012-13 Gold Standard, 2011-12 Past & Present, 2012-13 NBA Hoops, 2011-12 Limited.
Hockey: 2012-13 Score
