Some great free cards from Panini are only a Tweet away

You already know about our contest, but here is another one you might not know about.  Panini has set aside 15 Material and Signature Cards to be given away to a random followers of their Twitter account.  These cards will be released one at a time for each 50 new followers they get.  So if you follow us on Twitter, make sure you follow Panini too.  If you don't follow us or Panini yet, what are you waiting for?   To check out the cards, use this link to get to The Knight's Lance.

Brand new SPEED-break™ of a hobby box of 2010 Panini Gridiron Gear Football Cards with some nice Mojo right at the top.

I have to admit that after the first two packs of this break I though this box was loaded, but things settled down for a bit.   I love the look of these cards but this is definitely a multiple purchase set builder, especially considering there are 100 Rookie cards and only 18 in a box.  But I'm certainly not going to have a problem picking up another box or two.

Here is the break.

Another Sneak Peek at our Contest Prize Package

Thanks to Topps for adding the following boxes to our prize package.
A hobby box of 2010 Baseball Update Series.  This release is based heavily on the All-Star game, so finding top players is like shooting fish in a barrel.  The SPEED-break we did of the Update Series is our most viewed YouTube video to date.

A retail box of 2010 National Chicle.  After some initial buzz about the Ruth card, things settled and Chicle found its audience.

A retail box of 2009 Bowman Draft Picks Football cards.

So with this, plus the box from Press Pass, the prize package is shaping up rather nicely.  But wait... there's more to come.

There is still time to enter the contest, details can be found using this link.

Rookie Blogger is a Great Read

We've always tried to send you to other blogs that are great and we have found a young startup that should make you take notice.  From The Cheap Seats is an no-frills, straight up, good writing blog on all New York sports.  It pulls no punches and obviously comes from someone who has deep sports knowledge, not just a fan spewing rants.  Its a great read.  Use this link to get to From The Cheap Seats and tell them you go the link from All About Cards.
