Free Kids Breaks, Country’s Top Breakers to Fill Panini America Booth at 2015 National

July 21, 2015

Panini America Kids Case Break

From the time the 2015 National Sports Collectors Convention opens its doors next Wednesday afternoon until the show closes for business on Sunday evening, Panini America’s corporate booth once again will be the place to be. Annually the National’s most interactive, engaging and energetic corporate exhibitor, Panini America plans to steal the show one more time this year in Chicago.

While many collectors will flock to the Panini America booth to participate in the company’s popular wrapper-redemption program or to quality for the spectacle that is the company’s 2015 National VIP Party or to take advantage of the company’s Live Redemption Trade-Up Program, others will come just to soak up the ambiance of the Panini America booth.

Adding to the feel-good vibe inside the Panini America booth this year will be four Free Kids Case Breaks (conducted by Bryan Gavin of Ultimate Box Breaks) and a steady lineup of live case breaks from some of the top group breakers in the country.

Sign ups for the four Panini America Kids Free Case Breaks (one Thursday, one Friday and two Saturday) will take place inside the Panini America booth beginning at 10 a.m. each day. Teams will be drawn randomly at 10:30 and each break will begin later that same afternoon. Qualified entrants will then participate in a free break (only one break per child) according to the following schedule:

Thursday, July 30
2014-15 Totally Certified Basketball (2 p.m.)

Friday, July 31
2014 Absolute Football (2 p.m.)

Saturday, August 1
2014-15 Paramount Basketball (2 p.m.)

2015 Clear Vision Football (4 p.m.)

The Panini America Free Kids Case Breaks will be but one part of a large Breaker Presence inside the Panini America booth. With two designated breaker tables inside the booth, Panini America will also be a destination for collectors who want to watch some of the industry’s preeminent group breakers do their thing live.

    Good to see Panini embrace the group breaking community as always, I hear great things about Friendly Box Breaks and Firehand Sports Cards are legends in the YouTube community! Thanks Tracy!

    Not cool- so you are having “kids” break expensive boxes of cards that they could not afford to buy. This doesn’t add to the hobby, Tracy! Come on- if you collected as a “kid” years ago you know this! Why not have them break Score Football- a more sensible product for “kids?”

      That’s what we had them breaking for free at our booth last year. We’re switching things up a little this year.
