Adding to the long list of attractions at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention, Panini America premiered its presence in the VIP package today.
Inside pre-stuffed bags, VIP attendees will find a four-card Panini base set headlined by company spokesmen Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin and John Wall. Collectors will also find a coupon that can be exchanged at
the manufacturer’s corporate booth for two additional “mystery cards.”
Show-goers with SuperVIP status will snag a less mysterious, but still alluring Rookie Card set. The premium package coupon can be exchanged for six 2011 rookie luminaries: Cam Newton, Mark Ingram, A.J. Green, Blaine Gabbert, Jake Locker and Terrelle Pryor — who will be making his cardboard debut at the show.
