Panini adds Mike Tyson to VIP Party guest roster
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
He’s been the world heavyweight champ, had a Hangover, joined the WWE Hall of Fame, a man who forever changed video games and is “the baddest man on the planet.”
But now Mike Tyson is a Panini America VIP Party guest.
Tyson is the latest addition to a roster that includes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, John Smoltz, Pete Rose and Ricky Williams, among others, for a Saturday night event attended by those who spend $7,500 on a list of selected products on the show floor from a selected list of dealers.
Eligible attendees will receive 500 silver VIP packs after they sign up for the event and then gold VIP packs at the event with cards made just for the program. The guests will sign photographs noting the event for attendees as well.
The products for the fourth-annual event include:
2015 USA Baseball Stars & Stripes
2014-15 NBA Hoops
2014-15 Totally Certified
2015 Clear Vision
2015 Contenders Draft Picks
2015 Prizm Collegiate Draft Picks
2015 Country Music
Cases and boxes must be purchased from Atlanta Sports Cards, Blowout Cards, Dave & Adam’s Card World, Marty’s Sports Card Exchange or Steel City Collectibles as part of the program.
