Free Kids Breaks, Country’s Top Breakers to Fill Panini America Booth at 2017 National

July 21, 2017

Kids Case Break

From the time the 2017 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 Chicago.

While many collectors will flock to the Panini America booth to participate in the company’s popular wrapper-redemption program, to qualify for the spectacle that is the company’s 2017 National VIP Party or to 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 seven Panini America Free Kids 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 10:30 a.m. each day. Teams will be drawn randomly 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, July 27
2016-17 Select Basketball (2 p.m.)
2017 Prestige Football (4 p.m.)

Friday, July 28
2016 Rookies & Stars Football (2 p.m.)
2016-17 Limited Basketball (4 p.m.)

Saturday, July 29
2017 Donruss Optic Baseball (11 a.m.) National Main Stage
2016 Black Gold Football (1 p.m.)
2016-17 Spectra Basketball (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.
