Tomorrow morning, the Phoenix Convention Center will open its doors to kick off Super Bowl XLIX festivities with the fabled NFL Experience, annually one of the Super Bowl’s biggest marquee attractions. If you’ve never experienced the Experience, well, it’s epic — and perhaps best summarized by this blurb on the event’s website:
“The NFL Experience Engineered by GMC is the most exciting continuous event surrounding Super Bowl XLIX – pro football’s interactive theme park offering participatory games, displays, entertainment attractions, youth football clinics and free autograph sessions from current and former NFL players.”
You know what else is epic about the NFL Experience? The Panini America booth. Spacious, inviting, exciting and fun, it promises to be the place to be during all eight days of the NFL Experience. Once again this year, Panini America has big plans for the NFL Experience, including three special card sets — one devoted to the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, one devoted to 16 of the greatest moments in Super Bowl history and one devoted to the hometown Arizona Cardinals. In addition, Panini America has created commemorative Super Bowl patch cards that will be available at the booth early next week. Below you’ll find a must-see gallery detailing all of the cards.
Of course, if you’re attending the NFL Experience this year, all you want to know is how to get your hands on these cards. Keep reading to find out:
Purchase the Panini America Super Bowl XLIX set at the NFL Shop at Super Bowl inside the NFL Experience and bring your receipt to the Panini America booth. In exchange, this weekend you’ll receive the nine-card Arizona Cardinals set. Beginning next week, bring your receipt to the Panini America booth and you’ll receive one of the commemorative patch cards.
