Panini announces NBA Centre Court plans


NBA Centre Court Durant

By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Basketball Editor

Thousands of basketball fans will be heading to the NBA Centre Court interactive fan event this weekend at the Enercare Centre in Toronto and Panini America promises to be in the thick of the action with what it has called an “interactive basketball station” featuring both player signings and a redemption program.

Running from Friday through Sunday, company representatives will be out to meet with collectors and spread the word about the hobby at NBA Centre Court. In order to receive an eight-card exclusive set with a Donruss-inspired design, fans will need to make a qualifying purchase of Panini America trading card products at the NBA All-Star Shop at the event.

Which players are part of the promotional set and who is appearing for Panini at NBA Centre Court? Find out after the jump.


The checklist for the promotional set not only features a pair of top rookies in Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis, but there are also cards of Anthony Davis and Stephen Curry along with Panini spokesmen like Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving, John Wall, and Kevin Durant.

Both casual fans and hardcore collectors are going to appreciate the lineup of players that Panini is bringing in for public autograph sessions. The interactivity begins with Noah Vonleh on Friday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. while Saturday is loaded up with three rookie stars in D’Angelo Russell (10:00 to 11:00 a.m.), Emmanuel Mudiay (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.), and Towns (1:00 to 2:00 p.m.). Finally, Tyler Ennis comes to the booth from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Beckett Basketball will provide additional online coverage of NBA Centre Court on the weekend and in its April 2016 issue.
