Irving, Texas (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
Portland Trail Blazers extraordinary sophomore Damian Lillard is slated to make NBA history this weekend by becoming the first player to compete in all five NBA All-Star Weekend events (BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge, Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Foot Locker Three-Point Contest, Sprite Slam Dunk Contest and the All-Star Game itself). Meanwhile, Panini America will be attempting to set the NBA All-Star Jam Session record for busiest booth ever.
From the minute the doors open on New Orleans' Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on Thursday afternoon until they close on Sunday evening, the Panini America booth inside the NBA All-Star Jam Session promises to be a bustling, action-packed destination featuring free autograph appearances by NBA superstars, Box Wars, a commemorative 2014 NBA All-Star Game set and special 2013-14 Gold Standard Basketball case-break events hosted by none other than Blake Griffin and Victor Oladipo.
For complete details of everything we have going on this weekend, keep reading.
Panini America's 2014 NBA All-Star Game Commemorative Prestige Set
Fans who purchase the official 2013-14 NBA Sticker Collection Multipack at the NBA Store inside Jam Session and bring their receipt to the Panini America booth will receive the eight-card 2014 NBA All-Star Game Prestige set for free. While you're at the booth, Panini America also will give you a free 2014 NBA Sticker Album to put your stickers in.
Panini America's 2014 NBA All-Star Game Commemorative Patch Cards
Fans who purchase a 2013-14 Prizm Basketball box at the NBA Store inside Jam Session and bring their receipt to the Panini America booth will not only receive the eight-card 2014 NBA All-Star Game Prestige set for free, they'll also get their choice from six commemorative 2014 NBA All-Star Game manufactured patch cards for free too. The players featured include Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Larry Johnson, Pete Maravich and Anthony Davis.
Box Wars and the Chance to Meet Blake Griffin
On both Thursday and Friday at 6:30 p.m. at the Panini America booth, Panini America will conduct special Box Wars contests (one each day) for fans and collectors who purchase boxes of 2013-14 Prizm Basketball at the NBA Store inside Jam Session. Five winners each day will win the rare opportunity to meet Los Angeles Clippers superstar Blake Griffin and get their picture taken with him when he visits the Panini America booth on Saturday to help us bust an early case of 2013-14 Gold Standard Basketball.
