Panini offers redemption trade-up at Fall Expo
By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Hockey Editor
Panini America will hold its Redemption Trade-Up Program during the 2012 Fall Expo this weekend.
Collectors who are holding multiple outstanding redemptions four months or older can redeem them for a card or cards of higher value.
Panini will assign values of $50, $100, $150 and $200 to cards and place them in grab bags. Based on the redemption a collector holds, they will get to choose a card from one of the grab bags.
“For example, a collector holding four outstanding redemption cards with a combined Beckett value of $100 will have the chance to swap those four cards for one $100 card via a carefully constructed grab-bag system,” Panini wrote on its blog.
The redemption cards must already be pending in the system and past four months due. Collectors will be able to get up to $400 in value at the show.
Collectors will have to sign a waiver stating they agree to the pulled replacement.
Panini asks to bring a print out from the company’s website showing the outstanding redemption. They will be checked on-site as well and values will be assigned.
The Redemption Trade-Up will take place Friday, Nov., 9 from 5-8 p.m.
The company will also offer collectors participating in Box Wars at the company booth a chance to replace any redemptions pulled on the spot.
