If you have any outstanding older redemptions with Panini America, the National Sports Collectors Convention is where you can make a trade.
In short, in Baltimore Aug. 1-5, you can trade and maybe upgrade.
The company announced its trade program on Tuesday. For any redemptions more than four months old totaling a certain amount, a grab bag containing an autograph or memorabilia card of $50, $100 or $200 Beckett value can be obtained via trade. The bags will note which sport they are good for and there is a maximum of $400 in redemptions that can be traded in during the show.
Collectors need to bring a printed copy of their outstanding redemptions from the Panini website so they can be verified and valued. Some grab bags will include on-site redemptions good for Panini boxes as well.
The company will announce more details closer to the time of the show.
