Panini America and the NBA announced today that San Antonio-based Sports Cards Plus, a trading card staple in South Texas for more than two decades, is the grand-prize-winning shop in the 2015 Panini America NBA Starting 5 hobby shop promotion. As a result, Sports Cards Plus will receive a $75,000 store makeover and will host a grand re-opening event during the upcoming 2015-16 NBA season to showcase the new store.

“We’re always excited to participate in the NBA Starting 5 promotion every year, and 2015 was no different,” said Sports Cards Plus owner Charlie DiPietro, whose store submitted more 2014-15 Panini America NBA wrappers than any other store to win the grand prize. “Being notified that we won the grand prize left me temporarily speechless. This is truly a defining moment for Sports Cards Plus, and we can’t wait to show our loyal customers and sports fans in this area our redesigned store in the coming months.”

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for complete details on Sports Cards Plus’ grand reopening event coming later this fall and including a free NBA player appearance, Panini America promotions and more.
