Panini America On Location: Farewell from the 2012 Toronto Spring Expo (Gallery)

May 7, 2012

TORONTO — The 2012 Toronto Spring Expo came to a conclusion Sunday afternoon with similar results to those of the three most recent Expos held at the Toronto International Centre: With Panini Amerca completely out of packs and the company’s wrapper-redemption stealing the show.

Sunday’s autograph guests included some incredible netminders, including Ed Giacomin, Rogie Vachon, Kirk McLean and Charlie Hodge as well as Hall of Famer Darryl Sittler. Thanks to everyone who came by the Panini America booth and made this show way more enjoyable than it should have been.

With that, here’s our photo farewell from Toronto, with the highlights of Sunday’s final hours. We can’t wait until the fall.

    my son and I had a great time talking and interacting with all the guys from Pannini even before he opened up his two boxes of the certified hockey. The look on his face was priceless when the pulled the Hoppkins rookie auto/jersey. If that was not awsome enought he recieved some awsome redemption pack cards as well.A towel card as well as the Ovie all-star game patch. We will definetlly make it to the next show that you guys attend. See if Tracy can make it this time. It would be cool to have my son me another of the guys he sees on you-tube, once again thank you for a great time from the both of us.
