Free Kids Breaks, Country’s Top Breakers to Fill Panini America Booth at 2016 National

July 29, 2016

National Box Breaks

From the time the 2016 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 Atlantic City.

While many collectors will flock to the Panini America booth to participate in the company’s popular wrapper-redemption program, qualify for the spectacle that is the company’s 2016 National VIP Party or 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 another year of the popular 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 record seven Panini America Kids Free Case Breaks (two Thursday, two Friday and three Saturday, including one on the National’s Main Stage) 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, August 4
2016 Clear Vision Football (2 p.m.)
2015-16 Luxe Basketball (4 p.m.)

Friday, August 5
2015-16 Absolute Basketball (2 p.m.)
2016 Prime Signatures Football (4 p.m.)

Saturday, August 6
2016 Black Gold Collegiate Football (11 a.m.) National Main Stage
2015-16 Gold Standard Basketball (1 p.m.)
2016 Prestige Football (3 p.m.)

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

    Great to see FireHand again included in this year’s festivities, those guys are some of the longest-standing and most trustworthy guys in the break game. Always a good time when you add the kids to the mix as well. Thanks Tracy!
