Panini America On Location: Must-See Pics from 2013 Fan Expo Canada (Gallery)
TORONTO — The bustling Panini America booth at this week’s 2013 Fan Expo Canada has seen its share of highlights through the show’s first three days. From hot cards and cool cars to Star Wars stars and Lara Croft, this weekend has provided enough buzz-generating memories to last at least until 2014 Fan Expo Canada.
For most sports collectors in attendance at this celebration of pop culture, science fiction and sports, the Panini America booth has been a must-see, must-stay destination — as much for its riveting wrapper-redemption program as for its free group breaks of the new 2012-13 Prime Hockey conducted by our friends at Cloutsnchara.
For those of you who weren’t able to make it across the border for all of the festivities, The Knight’s Lance has you covered with a comprehensive gallery of must-see scenes from the show. A passionate Panini America contingent that includes Scott Prusha, Tim Franz, David Sharp, Alex Carbajal and more have spent the last four days engaging and interacting with diehard Canadian collectors who’ve made the experience more enjoyable that it has a right to be.
Many of this week’s best moments are captured in the gallery that follows. Enjoy, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the next few days as we stay in Toronto to provide comprehensive coverage of the 2013 NHLPA Rookie Showcase and tomorrow’s special signing at 401 Games with young stars Tyler Biggs and Jonathan Drouin.
