Now that 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention week is officially underway, Panini America officials can begin pulling the curtain back on many of the surprises they have in store for one of the biggest events of the collecting year. When the doors open on Cleveland’s Ferris-wheel-enhanced I-X Center for Wednesday evening’s Sneak Peek night, the real thrill ride will begin inside the Panini America booth.
That’s where collectors will go to participate in the company’s show-stealing wrapper-redemption program, and where many collectors will earn an exclusive spot in Panini America’s third annual Panini VIP Party, a Saturday-night spectacular sure to be the talk of the town. Today, Panini America officials confirmed the first two names on a most star-studded guest list.
NBA Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins, one of the most gifted and graceful high-flyers in NBA history, promises to help Panini America take the Panini VIP Party to new heights with his presence on Saturday night. The nine-time NBA All-Star and 1986 scoring champion will be one of many luminaries in attendance Saturday night to engage and interact with party-goers.
Panini America officials also confirmed on Monday that the legendary DJ Kool, Mr. Let Me Clear My Throat himself, will once again provide the soundtrack to Saturday evening’s festivities as only he can. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance and the Panini America Twitter account for new confirmed guests all week long leading up to Saturday’s party.
Trust us when we tell you: This will be our most spectacular guest list . . . ever. Stay tuned.
