In conjunction with the Super Bowl, the NFL Experience will kick off in Indianapolis on Friday. Held at the Indiana Convention center, the NFL Experience will run for nine days incorporating participatory games, displays, entertainment attractions, kids’ football clinics, free autograph sessions and the largest football memorabilia show ever in conjunction with Super Bowl XLVI.
Once again, Panini is co-sponsoring the free autographs and memorabilia show. The trading card manufacturer has produced its largest NFL Experience-exclusive set ever, a football fan’s dream chase that includes seven Super Bowl MVP wrapper-redemption cards, 10 Indianapolis Colts cards honoring the host team and two nine-card sets devoted to key members of the New England Patriots and New York Giants.
But one of the highlights of the show for hometown fans will likely be the exclusive 10-card tribute to the storied career of the Colts Peyton Manning that will be given away free to fans and collectors who visit the Panini America booth during the NFL Experience’s opening weekend.
As for the other parts of the set . . .
- Collectors will get to choose one of the seven Super Bowl MVP cards for every three packs of 2011 Panini America NFL product they open at the company’s booth.
- Collectors who purchase the complete Panini America NFL Experience set (which includes the 10-card Colts set, the nine-card Patriots set and the nine-card Giants set) will also receive a special limited-edition Super Bowl XLVI patch card available only at the NFL Experience while supplies last.
