Fanatics/Topps NBA Rookie Event with Victor "Wemby" Wembanyama

September 2023

When Fanatics and Topps wanted to celebrate we worked closely with them to build this stage in no time! Our recent collaboration with Fanatics and The Topps Company brought out San Antonio's very best NBA fans and collectors. Fanatics came to Solomon Group with a big vision for a first-of-its-kind event – and an accelerated timeline. Working against the clock like Wemby in the 4th quarter, our production design team visualized a set that worked for both broadcast, and live audiences. The set, which displayed both of the Fanatics/Topps brand identities, featured a wall of rookie cards specially for the invited guests. Our fabrication team got to work on technical design and construction before the big event, which we broadcast to thousands from the Thompson San Antonio Riverwalk.

Fans not only met the NBA's anticipated sensation, Victor "Wemby" Wembanyama, but a few lucky fans also won the first card he ever signed. A generational talent, 7'4" Wemby's debut with the San Antonio Spurs is eagerly awaited, and our event added to the escalating excitement.
