The Panini America 2011-12 NBA Draft Pick Redemption Checklists are Revealed!
October 29, 2012 at 4:16 PM
Tonight was the night. Starting at 9 p.m. CST on Panini America’s BlogTV channel, five months of intense anticipation began paying off for anxious collectors who’ve been waiting since the releases of 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball, 2011-12 Limited Basketball and 2011-12 Gold Standard Basketball to find out the identity of their 2011 NBA Draft Pick Autograph Redemptions.
The names of the 35 players featured on the 2011 NBA Draft Pick redemptions — card #’s XRCA through XRCII in each of the three aforementioned products — were already known prior to tonight’s live draft. It was exactly which card number would be assigned to which player that created such suspense in advance of tonight’s drawing held live on the Panini America BlogTV channel.
So at at 9 p.m. (CST) sharp, we began calling out the 35 players listed below one by one, beginning with the last player on the list (Lavoy Allen) and working in reverse order until we got all the way up to 2011 No. 1 overall pick Kyrie Irving. With each player, we reached into a box of sealed envelopes, grabbed one and opened it, revealing the card number for that particular player.
The suspense, especially as we got toward the end of the checklist, was quite intense. Thanks to everyone who tuned in tonight for making our first-ever live checklist draft such a fun experience. In case you missed any of the excitement live on BlogTV or through our live Twitter updates, the complete checklist is provided below.
Thanks again. And stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional updates and first looks at the cards in the coming days and weeks.
