Panini America 2014 National VIP Party Main

CLEVELAND — In one corner of the spacious, lavish VIP Lounge at FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland Browns rookie Johnny Manziel and Cleveland Cavaliers superstar Kyrie Irving are rubbing elbows with fans. In another, new Baseball Hall of Famer Tom Glavine is swapping stories with collectors. Look elsewhere around the packed, festive confines and you see the legendary Joe Namath posing for selfies . . . Julius Erving and Dominque Wilkins regaling awestruck onlookers with straight hoops history . . . Jose Canseco still seeming larger than life . . . and Trey Burke making time for anyone who wants it.

All the while, the legendary DJ Kool is providing the live soundtrack to a star-studded, surreal-feeling fantasy that is Panini America’s 2014 National VIP Party. For the third straight year, Panini America officials on Saturday night pulled out all the stops to help celebrate some of the company’s most passionate collectors and business partners. For the third straight year, the event created memories that will last a lifetime.

Amid the unparalleled assemblage of star power, party guests were treated to good food, good times and Gold Packs among other unforgettable party favors. In the gallery below, we offer must-see images of just some of the highlights from Panini America’s 2014 National VIP Party, a selection of scenes that includes an epic meeting between Namath and Manziel, Green Room signing sessions and more.

Enjoy the gallery.

    Hey that’s me with Niquuuuuuuuuuue! Haha
    Had an absolute blast, winning that PaniniWildCard to get there was unreal. People going this year have no idea the detail and amazement u guys put into these parties. Seeing this recap made me feel a little better that I wasn’t going to be there this year, but that line “the event created memories that will last a lifetime” is completely accurate- and I vow to be back one day 🙂
    Thanks a million Tracy and have fun at tonight’s ’15 party all!
