Special Appearance: Cincinnati Pitcher & Avid Collector Bill Bray Stops By Panini HQ
Part of the excitement of being on the Panini America marketing team is you really never know what you’re walking into on any given day. Friday morning started off with a bang, as our email inbox chimed with a note from Product Development Director Ben Ecklar asking if someone from the marketing team would be available to conduct a quick interview with Cincinnati Pitcher and noted trading card collector, Bill Bray.
After taking a tour of the Panini America facilities, Bray sat down with Panini’s own Scott Prusha to talk baseball and collecting. As you’ll see from the video, Bray is not only well-versed out of the bullpen (career year last season), he’s also a card collecting guru. He first appeared in Panini baseball product as a top prospect in 2004 Donruss Elite Extra Edition (see image in gallery) and now, he’s not only looking forward to seeing his new cardboard in upcoming Panini America baseball releases – he’s also ecstatic about busting some packs.
Enjoy the ensuing video and image galley. Make sure to post your comments about the interview for a chance to win the autographed baseball Bray left behind during his visit.
