Panini America Delivers Wrapper Trade-In Program for 2014-15 Donruss Basketball

February 27, 2015

Panini America 2014-15 Donruss Basketball Trade-In Zach LaVine

Panini America officials on Friday morning announced that the company will conduct a unique wrapper trade-in program with the new 2014-15 Donruss Basketball product that released on Wednesday. The program is centered around three of the most spectacular performers from NBA All-Star 2015 in New York City earlier this month — Andrew Wiggins, Stephen Curry and Zach Lavine.

For every 24 hobby wrappers of 2014-15 Donruss Basketball submitted through the program, collectors will receive a three-card pack that includes special 2014-15 Donruss Basketball cards honoring Wiggins (MVP of the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge), Curry (winner of the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest) and LaVine (winner of the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest) featuring action photography from those three events.

In addition, there are randomly inserted — and rare — autograph versions of those three players on variation cards featuring photography of each player holding his respective award.

Collectors interested in participating in the wrapper trade-in program, which is available only while supplies last, should submit their hobby wrappers (24 for each three-card pack) to:

2014-15 Donruss Basketball Trade-In
Panini America
5325 FAA Boulevard, Suite 100
Irving, Texas 75061-3601

The special three-card packs will begin shipping in April.

Wrappers submitted by hobby shops will also count toward each shop’s grand total as part of the 2015 Panini NBA Starting 5 promotion.

We’ve previewed the LaVine base card above; you can check out the Curry autograph card below. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days for a complete look at all six cards in the set.

    Can hobby shops / collectors outside USA participate in this? When is the latest date Panini will accept the wrapper shipments? Need to collect the wrappers from our customers and ship them at once. Thanks.

      From Kevin Haake, our Director of Hobby Sales:

      “It’s open to everyone who has wrappers. It’s a while-supplies-last promotion so there is no ‘end’ date.”

    Definitely worth saving the packaging on these, those auto variations will be highly sought after and oh so rare. Thanks Tracy!
