Panini Announces Silver Redemption pack Requirements

In two short days, all collecting eyes will be firmly fixed on the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., the site of the 40th National Sports Collectors Convention. And for many of those fans attending the big show, the massive Panini America booth that anchors the corporate pavilion will be the primary destination for any number of reasons.

Whether show-goers are participating in the company’s epic wrapper-redemption program, taking advantage of the Live Redemption Trade-Up Program, participating in or watching the many group breaks in the booth, qualifying for a coveted ticket to the exclusive Panini National VIP Party, redeeming their VIP set, or simply soaking up the ambiance, the Panini America booth promises to be the place to be.

But for many National visitors, this show revolves around the Panini America wrapper-redemption experience — and 2019 promises to be no different. Once again this year, the wrapper-redemption packs will be bona fide show-stealers and we’re going to show you many of the reasons why in the next few days, beginning with this gallery showcasing some of the promotion’s base parallel and memorabilia cards lining Panini America’s magical, silver-foiled 2019 National redemption packs.

Here’s a breakdown of this year’s Silver Pack redemption:
