Panini America and Cleveland Cavaliers to hold arena promotion
By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Basketball Editor
There is a special treat in store for folks attending Saturday’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and visiting Washington Wizards as Panini America will be giving away a pack of trading cards to every fan in the house.
The six-card 2016-17 Panini Cleveland Cavaliers collection is based off of this season’s NBA Hoops design and has different photos than the regular release. The checklist is solid with LeBron James, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Kevin Love, and Panini spokesman Kyrie Irving.
If that was not enough, though, there is a bonus 5″x7″ over-sized card of Irving with a different design. In order to obtain one, fans will need to visit the team store at the Quicken Loans Arena and make a qualifying purchase of the company’s 2016-17 NBA trading cards.
