A Visit to Panini America-They Make Baseball Cards

IMG_0255

While we were in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area yesterday we got hooked up with a visit to Panini America.  They are the people that make trading cards – including baseball cards.  They are doing some really amazing stuff with trading cards right now: special cards that are autographed and ones with pieces of actual game-used jerseys.

Here is a photo of them showing us some game-used Barry Bonds jerseys that will be used for some upcoming trading cards.

Another really cool thing that Panini does is make celebrity trading cards.

Here is a photo of Zack and Neal wearing some sport coats that were once worn by legendary commedians, Rodney Dangerfield (Zack) and Red Buttons (Neal).

Big thanks to Scott and all of the folks at Panini America.  As Baseball Card collectors ourselves, it was great to see all of the work that goes into making them and all of the innovation that is coming out.

One last thing: Bianca and Allison from the #BIGSNation West Tour Team just happened to be in the Dallas/Fort Worth area at the same time and stopped by to join us for the tour and pass out some BIGS Sunflower Seeds.  They were super excited to take home some Justin Bieber cards, but that’s a story for another day.  Here’s a video of Zack recapping the experience in front of the tour van.

    Correction: Only I was excited. I have found that they make great shy kid photo bribes.
