Panini America On Location: Sunday Scenes from the 2015 National (Must-See Gallery)
ROSEMONT, Ill. — Sundays at the National Sports Collectors Convention are historically light on foot traffic and heavy on exhibitors packing up in advance of an early exit. But in a fitting finale to the 36th edition, the Panini America booth has remained jam-packed for most of the final day, filled with loyal collectors and crazy excitement until the doors closed at 5 p.m. local time.
From the time the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center doors opened Wednesday afternoon, Panini America’s booth has served as a week-long destination for collectors participating in the company’s popular wrapper-redemption program, every-hour-on-the-hour Box Wars, Live Redemption Trade-Up Program, Free Kids Case Breaks and more.
In the gallery that follows, we detail showcase some of the highlights from the last two days of the show, including Kids Free Case Break winners, one lucky collector who turned a Box Wars victory into a ticket to last night’s epic Panini National VIP Party, great pulls and more.
Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance tomorrow for a must-see recap of the aforementioned Panini National VIP Party, a monumental event featuring the likes of Mike Tyson, Jabari Parker, John Smoltz, Ryne Sandberg, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bobby Portis and Ricky Williams.
Until then, enjoy these scenes . . .
