NEW ORLEANS — If you’re planning to descend upon New Orleans this weekend to revel in the glitz and glamour that is 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend, be sure to look for Panini America wherever you go for some special cards that will be available exclusively in the Big Easy. Beginning tonight during the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge at Smoothie King Center, Panini America will be on hand to award fans and collectors with special cards just for interacting — and having fun — at the company’s concourse booths.

Action will continue tomorrow during State Farm All-Star Saturday Night at Smoothie King Center and will culminate Sunday with the NBA Legends Brunch and the 66th NBA All-Star Game. Keep reading to find out exactly what’s in the Panini America cards this weekend.

Fans and collectors who stop by the Panini America concourse booths inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and Smoothie King Center will have the opportunity to play the popular Panini Plinko game to win commemorative 5 by 7 prize cards featuring past NBA All-Star moments and stars. There’s also a special 10-card 2017 NBA All-Star Game NBA Hoops Basketball set available throughout the weekend. Visit the Panini America booth for more details on how to obtain that.

During Sunday’s NBA Legends Brunch, attendees will receive a 10-card set of NBA greats, including Oscar Robertson, Grant Hill, David Robinson, Ernie Johnson and more. You can get a glimpse of everything in the gallery that follows.

Stay tuned to the Panini America social feeds all weekend long for live coverage of all the action, including behind-the-scenes access from the Panini All-Star VIP Suite. Oh, and if you can’t make it to New Orleans this weekend, is bringing the action to you, so to speak, with a special Rated Rookie promotion.
