Panini America Bringing Some Hobby Heat to Toronto for 2016 NBA All-Star Game

February 10, 2016

Panini America 2016 NBA All-Star Game Kristaps Porzingis

A quick check of this weekend’s weather forecast in Toronto calls for a “high” temperature of 18 degrees (on Sunday) and a bone-jarring low of minus-4 degrees (on Saturday). Luckily for all of us, NBA All-Star 2016 is coming to town to heat things up just a little — and Panini America will be there fanning the flames as part of the NBA Centre Court interactive fan event.

NBA Centre Court will be held Friday through Sunday inside Toronto’s Enercare Center and the Panini America booth — as always — promises to be a must-attend destination. Fans will get the chance to be hands-on during an interactive basketball station at the company booth throughout the show (and possibly receive a free pack of NBA trading cards in the process, too). The company also has created a special Donruss-inspired NBA All-Star 2016 card set that will be available to customers who make a qualifying purchase of Panini America products at the NBA All-Star Shop.

But no Panini America NBA All-Star experience would be complete without the rare opportunity for fans to meet some of the game’s biggest stars. To that end, the Panini America booth at NBA Centre Court will play host to a bevy of big-name signers during NBA All-Star 2016 weekend. (You can check out the tentative signing schedule below.)
