Must-See Video: Gordie Howe Welcomed to the Panini America Family, Signs for Fans

February 2, 2012

Last Friday during 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend in Ottawa, Panini America made major headlines by announcing that it had reached a multi-year trading card agreement with NHL legend Gordie Howe, making it official by presenting Mr. Hockey with a special Detroit Red Wings-inspired Panini hockey jersey inside a packed Panini America booth.

With the formalities out of the way and Howe donning his new colors, some 200 hockey fans received the thrill of a lifetime by receiving a brief meeting with and an autograph from the incomparable Howe, compliments of Panini America. In case you missed it, this telling video should provide ample highlights.
