Panini Authentic, Johnny Manziel Team Up for Public Signing at Aggieland Outfitters
Next Sunday, Aggies legend and Panini Authentic-exclusive athlete Johnny Manziel will return to Aggieland for his first public autograph signing since being drafted by the Cleveland Browns. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and former Texas A&M All-American will appear on behalf of Panini Authentic at Aggieland Outfitters (303 University Drive East Location) next Sunday, July 12, at 6 p.m.
“We have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to bring Johnny to a public setting,” said Brian Bayne, Panini Authentic Memorabilia Director. “There’s no better place to hold his first public autograph signing than back home in Aggieland, and Aggieland Outfitters is a perfect fit for Johnny and for Panini Authentic.”
Officials from Aggieland Outfitters, which brings in former A&M stars to meet with fans on a regular basis during football season, say that bringing Manziel back to Aggieland is a special opportunity for the Aggie-owned business.
“We couldn’t be more excited about bringing Johnny Football back to Aggieland and give Texas A&M fans the chance to meet one of our school’s all-time greats,” said Dallas Shipp, Aggieland Outfitters Director of Marketing & Communications. “We’ve worked with Panini Authentic the last couple of years on a variety of projects, and they’ve assisted Aggieland Outfitters in supporting Texas A&M club scholarship efforts at coaches nights around the state of Texas. Aggieland Outfitters is honored to host Johnny’s first ever public signing with Panini Authentic.
