National Intrigue: Panini America Previews Its Redemption Prizes for the 2011 National
As one of the top two vote-getters in our Knight’s Lance Readers Choice Weekend poll, this story is being brought to you by . . . well . . . you. The following gallery showcases just some of the Panini America wrapper-redemption prizes for the 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention.
There’s no rest for the weary here at Panini America (not that any of us are complaining). As last Friday afternoon turned into last Friday evening, I was crammed into our unusually hot main conference room along with fellow marketing comrades Scott Prusha and Chris Reed participating in the Herculean task of cataloging every last one of our wrapper-redemption prizes for the 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention.
Hey, when you’re talking about almost 2,000 autographed items, it can be a labor-intensive process. But it’s a small price to pay to once again deliver an absolutely show-stealing edition of our successful wrapper-redemption program.
This year, in addition to the live-card gems available in our shiny foil packs, we’re also randomly inserting instant-redemption cards good for some of the autographed memorabilia we’ve acquired over the last few years, including 8 by 10s, mini helmets, hockey pucks, basketballs, our popular oversized display cards and so much more.
The following images will give you just a taste of what we prepped well into last Friday night. We also have a few tricks up our sleeves that are sure to dazzle you as well.
