I like that they have done lcs pack promotions like Black Friday and Father's Day, it helps to move some older product and also brings extra business to LCS

I like Panini the company because of their excellent customer service which to me has been improving lately. I like that they interact with their customers through their blog, thus creating a relationship with the people who buy their products. I love the freebies they giveaway on their blog via contests, the free redemption packs they giveaway at the booths at card shows, their black box promotions, etc. The company, like any other, has it's flaws...but you must give them credit for trying in terms of creativity, building relationships, and creating products that appeal to different types of collectors.

I enjoyed their 10-11 Donruss product. I wish they would come out with something like it again. They do have some nice patches here and there depending on the product.

-Nice pack promotions (Father's Day, Black Friday)
-Excellent Customer Service
-Nice big base sets to complete (which is a neg to treasure hunters of course)
-Incorporate more players w/o much/any autos into auto checklists.
-Cool ideas in products(die cut jersey set, HRX, Gold Prizms, GS Rookie Redemptions)
-Fun Products(Donruss,Prizm, Past & Present)

Probably best not to post this here, too many members think we are just multiple accounts of Tracy Hackler. (Thanks for the "welcom"! )

Cut autos of legends.

That's probably the only thing I like about them.

I like that they seem to be producing autos and GU of players that either didn't have any before or hadn't had any in a while. I see they did a GU Dennis Johnson card for example and thought it was the first one I've seen.

I do agree they have a very wide range of autos and game used in products. Some love it and some hate it.

The made the very first card I could find that had Oscar Robertson's full signature AND nickname - something I wanted forever.

They offer free competitions on their blog where you can win product, I was lucky enough to do so once.

They make some nice football cards :P

They have some great jumbo patch sets.

They need more on-card autos and i would support them so much more.

To be able to get 11 Redemptions from 5 packs of 2011 Gold Standard. Believe I'm holding that record at the moment.

For prizm, I dont mean to give it another 10 colors. Just 1 numbered to like 100 and 1 numbered to 1. Or do it like FB with a color that is 1 per box. So the boxes are a little more colorful.

I like the fact that they make Licensed NBA cards.

I also like the fact that their box prices usually get really cheap after the mandatory srp period expires.

It's also great that there are always plenty of boxes to open at the shop when I get that itch, no one ever fights over the boxes.

I also like the fact that they are slowly evolving, though it would be better if they evolved more quickly.

The Kobe and Durant exclusives are a plus.

I think the silhouette set is one of their best inserts of all-time.

Oh, and just like above, they have saved me a lot of cash!!!

I like that they are attempting to bring the old brands back (IE Donruss, Zenith, Momentum, etc etc) I don't like that they can't just call them by their brand names though...

Donruss Elite is now "Elite"

Leaf Certified and Leaf Limited are now just "Certified and Limited" (although I do get this one since they sold "leaf")

Donruss Americana is now Panini Americana etc etc.

If they had kept the old brand names (and production models) but brought in new products (IE Prisim, Gold Standard etc etc)... it would have been much smoother IMO

I don't remember seeing too many one coloured patches from Panini. Perhaps you were thinking of Upper Deck?
