LeBron, Duncan, Lillard and More Featured in Special Panini America 2014 National Set
LeBron James commanded a global sports audience late last week when he announced that he was taking his talents back to Cleveland and his hometown Cavaliers to play basketball next season. As luck would have it, Panini America is returning to Cleveland too — later this month for the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention. And company officials are bringing a special set of game-worn jersey cards with them to commemorate James’ return as well as five other NBA superstars.
The special 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention Tools of the Trade Update set features three limited-edition versions of game-worn memorabilia cards from James (incorporating a game-worn James Cavaliers jersey), Tim Duncan, Damian Lillard, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo. The Tools of the Trade Update set is available exclusively at the National Sports Collectors Convention and includes the first NBA trading card featuring James in a Cavaliers uniform since announcing his return to Cleveland.
Collectors will receive one randomly selected, blind-wrapped memorabilia card (base versions are limited to 175 copies, Prime versions are numbered to 25 and Super Prime versions are numbered to only one) for each box of selected 2013-14 Panini America NBA product they open at the Panini America booth.
It’s worth noting that each Super Prime 1/1 features a Laundry Tag swatch.
The promotion will be limited to the first 200 customers during each day of the National and will be available through the purchase and redemption of the following products:
2013-14 Gold Standard Basketball
2013-14 Elite Basketball
2013-14 Prestige Basketball
2013-14 Prizm Basketball
2013-14 Pinnacle Basketball
2013-14 Totally Certified Basketball
