ARLINGTON, TX. - JAN. 27, 2010 - Panini, a leading manufacturer of licensed collectibles, is offering the collector who uncovers the NFL 2009 Limited Pro Bowl Combo Materials card featuring Super Bowl quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees (sequentially numbered #44 of 100), the chance to trade the card in for one box of every Panini NFL trading card released in 2010 and an exclusive Manning-Brees card sequentially numbered #1-of-1. Based upon the current production schedule, the collector will receive 10-15 products with a retail value of more than $1500.

Panini, offers collectors the chance to uncover hundreds of different cards featuring top players, authentic player autographs and even swatches of actual jerseys worn by NFL players. One of these cards issued this season featured both Manning and Brees and a swatch of both players' jerseys. The card, a part of the Pro Bowl Combo Materials insert set in Panini's 2009 Limited NFL brand, was released in October. The card has a limited print run of just 100 sequentially numbered cards.

To swap the #44 of 100 NFL Limited 2009 Pro Bowl Combo Materials Manning-Brees card, collectors should email a scan of the back of the card with the 44 of 100 sequential numbering visible to marketing@paniniamerica.net. Please put "Manning-Brees Redemption" in the subject line of the email. The offer is open until the opening kick-off of Super Bowl XLIV, on Sunday, February 7 @ 6:28 pm ET. Once the card scan is approved, the collector will be provided with instructions to mail the card to Panini to exchange it for their prize.

"Even though Limited was one of our most popular NFL releases this season, there is a good chance that this card is waiting to be opened in a pack on the shelf of a hobby store somewhere in America," said Scott Prusha, Marketing Manager for Panini. "We look forward to rewarding the lucky collector who finds this card and encourage all NFL card collectors to look through their collections to see if they have this unique card."

DAMN !!

I opened a box of that and pulled the #44/100 card ! but it had a bunch of creases and severely screwed up corners so I just 86'd it. I guess I should shoot panini an email to let them know of my plight.

You never know what's going to happen. If it was that bad, I probably would have done the same thing.

Interesting contest! Almost like Pinnacle contest back in 1996....Big Bang contest was If you submitted 16 big bang cards with all of the same serial number...you would get one of every product....It was impossble! However, the second contest was submitt all 16 big bang cards in the set and you would get on box of every baseball product.....There was lots of winners ...as each card was serial to 600! Best regards, David

I still think they know exactly where that card is.

I call shenanigans...

I received this e-mail from our partner in Panini this morning.

COLLECTOR DAWN MCNEW OF LEHIGH ACRES, FLORIDA

CLAIMS PANINI’S SUPER BOWL 44 MANNING-BREES BOUNTY



Peyton Manning “Super Collector” to Receive a Box of Every

2010 Panini NFL Trading Card Product



ARLINGTON, TX. – FEB. 3, 2010 – In celebration of Super Bowl 44 in Miami, Panini, a leading manufacturer of licensed collectibles, NFL and NBA trading cards, put out a bounty valued at more than $1,500, for the collector who pulls the NFL Limited 2009 Pro Bowl Combo Materials card featuring Super Bowl quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees (sequentially numbered #44 of 100). With a week left before the offer expired, collector Dawn McNew of Lehigh Acres, Fla., contacted the Panini offices to let them know the card all of America was searching for was part of her 1,000+ card Peyton Manning card collection.

“I am a huge, huge Peyton Manning fan and I only collect Peyton Manning cards, which is how I ended up with the card. I simply collect as many Peyton Manning cards as possible,” admitted McNew. “I saw the offer advertised on the Panini website and since I knew I had two versions of that card, I thought it would be worth checking my collection to see if I had #44. It was surely a great feeling to see one of my cards with the sequential numbering #44/100.”

In all, the physical education teacher at Lehigh Senior High School, estimates her Manning card collection to exceed 1,000 different cards, including two of the Manning-Brees Pro Bowl Material cards. An Indiana native, who moved to Florida seven years ago, she purchased the #44/100 Manning-Brees card for $11 on Nov. 12 on eBay where she does most of her collecting. She also shops at NASCAR Sports & Collectibles in Bonita Springs, Fla.

“When Dawn admitted that she was unsure if she wanted to part with the #44/100 version because it was part of her Manning collection, we knew she was a true collector and exemplified everything great about collecting,” admits Scott Prusha, Marketing Manager for Panini. “As a result, we decided to amend the bounty and return card #44/100 to her along with the year supply of Panini NFL cards and an exclusive Manning-Brees #1 of 1.”

The Manning-Brees card, a part of the Pro Bowl Combo Materials insert set in Panini’s 2009 Limited NFL brand, was released in October. It has a limited print run of just 100 sequentially numbered cards, and according to Beckett, is valued at $20. The offer, made by Panini on January 27, remained open to collectors until the opening kick-off of Super Bowl 44, on Sunday, February 7 @ 6:28 pm ET.

“From the hundreds of emails we received about this offer and the response on chat boards, blogs and websites, it is apparent that collectors had fun with this bounty,” said Prusha. “We’re so pleased that we will be able to reward a collector for their support of Panini NFL cards.”
