VIP Sandberg

ROSEMONT, Ill. — The guest list is complete. And as a result, Panini America’s highly anticipated 2015 National VIP Party is shaping up to be perhaps the most epic edition in the event’s four-year history. Earlier today, just hours after dropping the morning bombshell that boxing icon Mike Tyson would be attending tonight’s gala, company officials revealed the identity of the final VIP guest: Chicago Cubs legend and Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg.

Sandberg rounds out an event already brimming with star power thanks to the likes of Tyson, John Smoltz, Ricky Williams, Pete Rose, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis. You can check out exclusive 8-by-10 photographs of tonight’s special guests in the gallery below. These photos will be autographed by the respective athletes on them and awarded to party-goers later tonight.

    Those would be nice to see on cards as a parallel. I like that black fade with a crisp player photo. Imagine that signed in gold, silver, or red.
