Panini America On Location: A Hall of Fame Worthy Final Day at 2012 Toronto Fall Expo

November 12, 2012

TORONTO, Ontario — The final day at the 2012 Toronto Fall Expo was one for the ages. Sunday started with a longtime Panini collector gifting a vintage 1979 Panini NHL sticker packet and ended with a special visit and signing from newly enshrined NHL Hall of Famer and former Vancouver Canucks megastar Pavel Bure.  In the midst of the staggering sights, the Panini America wrapper-redemption program continued to offer an unmatched caliber of content and fun.

The autograph pavilion at the Fall Expo provided a star-studded lineup of NHL Hall of Famers — and of course, Panini America was able to capture photographs and autographs from some of the top talent at the event. Here’s a list of the talent that signed autographs for fans:

  • Phil Esposito, Hall of Fame 1984
  • Marcel Dionne, Hall of Fame 1992
  • Gilbert Perreault, Hall of Fame 1990
  • Pavel Bure, Hall of Fame 2012
  • Jonas Valanciunas, Toronto Raptors 2011 1st Round Draft Pick (#5 Overall)

Below you’ll find a delightful gallery we put together of our final day in Toronto. In addition to providing can’t-miss images from the show, we’re also going to be awarding some sweet prizes, including Expo-only autographed cards and wrapper-redemption packs. And all you have to do to be eligible to win is comment on your favorite photos from the event, beginning with Friday’s Day 1 gallery, yesterday’s Day 2 gallery and the final gallery on today’s post.
