VIPs will receive a coupon in their gift bags which can be redeemed at Panini America's Corporate Booth #643.
Panini will also have its usual exciting wrapper redemption program at the National. A 60-card set will be available with rookies numbered to 499 and 10 additional Rookie Memorabilia cards numbered to 99. The company will also participate in the First National Case Break Pavilion, host player appearances and once again run their always anticipated "Invitation Only" Party.
LeBron James commanded a global sports audience when he announced that he was taking his talents back to Cleveland and his hometown Cavaliers to play basketball next season. As luck would have it, Panini America is returning to Cleveland too for the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention. And company officials are bringing a special set of game-worn jersey cards with them to commemorate James’ return as well as five other NBA superstars.
The special 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention Tools of the Trade Update set features three limited-edition versions of game-worn memorabilia cards from James (incorporating a game-worn James Cavaliers jersey), Tim Duncan, Damian Lillard, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo. The Tools of the Trade Update set is available exclusively at the National Sports Collectors Convention and includes the first NBA trading card featuring James in a Cavaliers uniform since announcing his return to Cleveland.
Collectors will receive one randomly selected, blind-wrapped memorabilia card (base versions are limited to 175 copies, Prime versions are numbered to 25 and Super Prime versions are numbered to only one) for each box of selected 2013-14 Panini America NBA product they open at the Panini America booth.
It’s worth noting that each Super Prime 1/1 features a Laundry Tag swatch.
The promotion will be limited to the first 200 customers during each day of the National and will be available through the purchase and redemption of the following products:
Panini America’s National VIP Party returns with a very special venue and some great guests that will be announced as we get closer to the Panini VIP Party.
Collectors can gain entry into the exclusive, invitation-only National VIP Party by purchasing $7,500 worth of select Panini America products.
Beginning Thursday, Panini America will conduct five Box Wars contests each day of the show, with the winner of each one receiving a coveted Panini America Black Box. We are also bringing the ever engaging #PaniniWildCard to The National! The last two Box Wars each day will fall under the #PaniniWildCard category and will be determined that day.
