Panini America to Tip Off 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend with Special Player Appearance

January 15, 2013


If you own, operate or frequent a sports card shop in the Houston area, you could be less than a month away from meeting an NBA star as part of a special Panini America promotion destined to tip off 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend on a high hobby note.

Exactly who that player will be and what shop he will appear in for a free autograph signing remains a mystery for now, but will be announced on The Knight’s Lance on February 7. The appearance will take place one week later, on Valentine’s Day, and will be awarded to a Houston-area shop through a sales promotion revolving around Panini America NBA trading cards.

During the two-hour appearance, the NBA player will sign free autographs for up to 200 people and film a special episode of Panini Unwrapped. If you’re a shop owner, you can get more information by contacting your distributor. If you’re a customer, be sure to tell your shop owner about the promotion. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional details.

    If you need to move it from Houston to Boise, Idaho, I will gladly volunteer my shop!

    I didn’t know Houston had any shops. I went for business not to long ago and I went by several on Google and all of them were closed except for one that has to be the worst shop in America.

    anyway you can give some information on which day this will be happening because tickets are selling fast and they are dividing the days up into time slots so you can only get in at certain times of the day.
