Part of the excitement of being on the Panini America marketing team is you really never know what you’re walking into on any given day. Friday morning started off with a bang, as our email inbox chimed with a note from Product Development Director Ben Ecklar asking if someone from the marketing team would be available to conduct a quick interview with Cincinnati Pitcher and noted trading card collector, Bill Bray.
After taking a tour of the Panini America facilities, Bray sat down with Panini’s own Scott Prusha to talk baseball and collecting. As you’ll see from the video, Bray is not only well-versed out of the bullpen (career year last season), he’s also a card collecting guru. He first appeared in Panini baseball product as a top prospect in 2004 Donruss Elite Extra Edition (see image in gallery) and now, he’s not only looking forward to seeing his new cardboard in upcoming Panini America baseball releases – he’s also ecstatic about busting some packs.
Enjoy the ensuing video and image galley. Make sure to post your comments about the interview for a chance to win the autographed baseball Bray left behind during his visit.
