Black Boxes Are Ready To Rock

Press Pass is ready!  Upper Deck is ready!  And by the looks of it Panini is getting ready as well.  When it comes to making promos and giveaways, Panini really takes the cake.  Their legendary Black Boxes are one of the main attractions during the annual Industry Summit.  This year will not be any different.  Attendees will find a shamrock-shaped Rated Rookie logo T-shirt inside their welcome bag.  Five random collectors will be awarded a Black Box early on Monday if you’re caught wearing this T-shirt.

Upon completion of Panini’s presentation on Tuesday, the rest of the Black Boxes will be distributed.  Whats in a Black Box you ask?  Every Black Box will contain a special Industry Summit exclusive autograph or relic.  Collectors will also find Industry Summit exclusive 2013 Select Football Green Prizm parallels.  Each of these parallels will be limited to 15 copies.  Promos made for specific events such as the Industry Summit that can be integrated within an already established card set like Select are a fantastic idea.

No word yet from Topps on what their Industry Summit promos will look like.  It wouldn’t surprise me if it has something to do with 2014 Topps Heritage that comes out very shortly.  But that’s just a guess.
