Looks like the whole mess of why the Black 1/1 auto patch of Sam Bradford wasn't inserted into packs may finally be cleared up today. Panini's head marketing manager (and former Beckett employee) Tracy Heckler tweeted this late last night.
So hopefully it will all be cleared up tonight, though I imagine it will be nothing more than the overrun explanation, which can be found here. Whatever the explanation is it's taken over 5 days for Panini to issue a statement, which is quite a while considering the uproar it's caused. In the meantime I'll leave you with the image of the beautiful card at the centre of all this.
