Cincy Reds Star Brandon Phillips Fields Five Panini America Questions & You Could Win
Little-known fact: Just two days before Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips belted a two-run, sixth-inning homer yesterday in support of teammate Homer Bailey’s second career no-hitter, he was rubbing elbows with Panini America Baseball Acquisitions Manager Tone Stakes in a posh Dallas-area resort hotel.
Actually, to be fair, they weren’t so much rubbing elbows as they were conducting hardcore baseball-card business. In addition to procuring a Phillips game-used bat and delivering stickers for him to sign for upcoming Panini America products like 2013 Pinnacle Baseball and 2013 Prizm Baseball, Stakes also landed a fun, revealing “Five Questions” interview with the Reds star that you can watch below.
Oh, there was one other benefit of the weekend business meeting, and it’s one that Phillips Tweeted about on Monday night:
