San Antonio’s Sports Cards Plus Wins Grand Prize in 2015 Panini NBA Starting 5 Promo
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.”
