Back by popular demand will be Panini's Father's Day in-store hobby shop promotion. At participating card shops throughout the country, Panini has made available to them some limited edition packs to give out to customers just for stopping by.
Via Panini's blog:
For its 2013 Father’s Day offering, Panini America has created a 44-card base set that includes 22 Rookie Cards devoted to all four major sports that are sequentially numbered to 499. But it’s the nostalgia-rich insert lineup that likely will generate the most buzz from longtime collectors. From Team Pinnacle (15 cards) to Studio (24 cards) to Museum Collection (nine cards) to the continuing Elite Series, there’s a distinct throwback feel to Panini America’s 2013 Father’s Day set that will remind many collectors (fathers, sons and daughters alike) of their fond collecting roots.There will also be randomly inserted autographed and memorabilia relic inserts cards, as well.
If you are an older collector then you are probably familiar with the card designs Panini will be using. They harken back to the days when the hobby was on everybody's mind. The featured pics are of Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw on the old 1991 Donruss/ Leaf Studio design. Panini will make more preview pics available as we near Father's Day.
