TORONTO, Ontario — The puck dropped earlier this afternoon on the 2011 Toronto Fall Expo and after almost two days of preparing the booth and tying up loose ends, the Panini America team was ready.
Early reports from Panini America’s Chris Reed, one of our on-location reporters-slash-marketing teammates, can best be summed up with his four-word text sent just minutes after the show doors opened to the public: “Wrapper-redemption mayhem, dude.” That’s what we like to here.
We’re going to bring you exclusive coverage of the event all weekend long, so don’t stray too far away from The Knight’s Lance over the next few days. In addition to providing can’t-miss images and video 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 this one filled with images of first-day highlights.
Can’t make it to the Toronto Fall Expo this weekend? Still want wrapper-redemption packs? You’re in luck. Anyone buying select hockey products from now through Monday (while supploes last) at iCollectPanini.com will receive the same wrapper-redemption packs being awarded at the show. What are you waiting for?!

Is that stack of pucks prizes from Panini?
I love the pic of the fans showing off their pulls. If I was the guy in the Sabres Jersey, I’d have a huge smile too (ear to ear) after pulling that Brett Connoly Auto from those Silver Packs.
Keep up the great coverage, it’s going to be a long weekend of work.
Please come back for Spring Expo though 🙂
Those aren’t our pucks, just a cool visual from the show. Oh, we’ll be there in the spring, too.
Awesome photos – wish I could be there. There are 2 pics that I love… The one with the gold Stamkos and the one with the Jake Gardiner auto. SWEET! 🙂
KEEP THE PUCKS ROLLING LOL HA HA.
Hope you guys are having fun, brings back memories of this years National in Chicago. Sure wish I could be there. I would like to get ahold of those draft tickets because I was able to go to this years NHL draft in Minnesota, was alot of fun.
Tracy I didn’t know you was going to be at expo
Oh, I’m not. I’m filing all posts from the cozy confines of the Panini America marketing office.
oh make sense
Is there an Ryan Johansen redemption card at all this weekend?
I hope that doesn’t mean the hockey sticks are just a visual too (which would be my fav pic). If so, I love the creativity, personality and uniqueness of the sketch cards, AWESOME idea from Panini, as always!!! 🙂 I so wish I could be there!
Man, I wish I was up in Toronto for this, some awesome cards and memorabilia sitting around waiting to be gazed upon and drooled at.
love those sweet prize cards from your booth
Love the “Jets Fly Again” sketch card!
Wish I was there
Is that Prusha hiding behind wrappers?
Cool Pics, hope everyone is having a blast up there!
Going to try my best to get to Toronto this weekend.
When you are done with the RNH banner I have a bare spot in my office that needs cover. Just putting that out there…… =)
Panini booth looks like fun, as always.
My three year old son wants to know how he could get Woody the cowboy’s autograph. Lol.
Just home from the show and checking out my the great cards i got. A Doug Gilmour auto,Adam Henrique auto patch #15/25, and a Jamie McBain auto 5×7. Thanks Panini great looking cards and an even better promo. See you at the show again tommorrow
Great haul for day one. Thanks for stopping by the booth. Glad you enjoyed yourself. See you tomorrow.
Is there a cheklist for the rookie logo autos (like the jake gardiner one shown)?
There is. I’ll try to get that posted early next week when everyone’s back from Toronto.
Ahaha are those the star trek stickers?
So many cool pictures and things. Really hard to choose one. The paintings are really cool, the sick patch cards too, and wahts about the logo patches. Absolutely sick! There’s no thing like this here in Sweden. It would have been like a dream…
I must say I like the pic where everyones standing around the table busting wax. Makes me wish even more that I was there. The Panini booth looks great and must really stand out in the crowd. And the silver wrappers are always nice. STill love the aritstry by the rookies on the hand drawn cards and the autographed hats are sick. Looks great from here Panini!
On a side note, what in the world is that Ducktales item!! I watched that show when I was young and my sons now watch it. Now only if it was Darkwing Duck….
My favorite pics are the ones of the case with the autos and the multiple golden tickets. Definitely wish I could pull one of those in contenders football this year.
love the pic with the display that shows the absolute in it as its a sweet product
