Panini America Offers Dream Trip to Hoops Hall of Fame in 2012-13 Prestige Basketball

September 14, 2012

When the highly anticipated 2012-13 Prestige Basketball releases later today, it will hit store shelves with more than just a tremendous design, 100 Rookie Cards and a tantalizing selection of inserts. Indeed, each box will deliver more than three autographs, one memorabilia card and one bonus pack of five Kobe Anthology cards.

In fact, each and every pack produced for the product across both hobby and retail channels will include the chance for one lucky fan and a guest to win a dream trip to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

Panini America’s season-long Hall of Fame promotion tips off in earnest today, and will follow with chances for similar dream excursions to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (in 2012 Cooperstown Baseball) and the Pro Football Hall of Fame (in 2012 Gridiron Football).

“One of our main objectives with every product we make is to bring fans and collectors as close as possible to the greatest athletes who’ve ever played the game,” said Jason Howarth, Panini America Vice President of Marketing. “Now, we’re taking that mission one step farther with this special Hall of Fame promotion. One lucky fan will win a free trip to the Hall of Fame – and the lasting memories that come with such an opportunity – just for opening packs of Panini America trading cards.”

All fans and collectors have to do to be eligible is enter into the special Hall of Fame Holiday Website the unique access code found on the Hall of Fame Holiday promo card inserted into every pack of the three aforementioned products. The best part? Everyone who enters the sweepstakes will also be entered into a drawing for the grand prize: A dream trip for two to all three Halls of Fame.

We’ll give you a second to let that sink in.

Panini America is the exclusive trading card manufacturer of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and is an official partner of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

    And while you’re there, make sure you take a picture of the world’s biggest autographed/game used trading card! Made by Panini of course and featuring Kobe Bryant!

    I’ve actually been to this HOF (speaking more to geographical convenience than interest, honestly) and had an excellent time. This was many years ago so I wonder if they still have the shoot-around room with the epic-length point counter, that was the main thing I remember from the trip. Also the sheer size of some of the bronzed shoes are jaw-dropping. Excellent promotion as always from Panini, thanks Tracy!

    I have been fortunate to have been to all 4 major HOF. Baseball-4 times (last time was to see Harry Kalas induction). Football during a college road trip with my brother. Basketball on a summer road trip the year it opened. As I recall, I don’t think it was open very long when we went. Hockey, with my wife the last time we were in Canada. Toronto is an awesome city!

    It’s very sad, that this is not available for international collectors.
