Pittcraft was recently involved in the design and production of the 2014 National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Celebration Program. This thirty six page saddle stitched program featured a custom 8" x 8" size with a flood gloss Aqueous coating throughout to give it a classy - high quality look and feel.
This prestigious event held each year in Kansas City Missouri spans three days concluding with the annual CBE Hall of Fame Classic; a four team tournament style playoff between some of college basketballs top teams each year. This years event was highlighted by All-Americans and NCAA champions Grant Hill of Duke and Darrell Griffith of Louisville, along with two-time national player of the year and All-American Shaquille O’Neal of LSU.
The program included bio's on each of the eight - inductee's, the run of show, past results, and much more information regarding past induction celebrations. Pittcraft is honored to have a longstanding history of involvement with this piece, and is grateful to have the opportunity to be involved with the development and the production of this piece for such a prestigious event.

Via the 2014 Induction program regarding the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame:
"The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is housed within The College Basketball Experience (CBE), a world-class attraction featuring experiential exhibits that immerse fans in the game of basketball, as well as special tributes that celebrate the history of men’s collegiate basketball. The CBE is located in downtown Kansas City, as part of Sprint Center, a state-of-the-art arena that opened in October 2007. The CBE and the arena are attached by a common Grand Lobby.
The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame selection process is directed by a blue ribbon committee chaired by NABC Deputy Executive Director Reggie Minton. The committee is comprised of current and former college basketball administrators and coaches who have developed the criteria and oversee the ongoing integrity of the induction process.
The College Basketball Experience facility and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame are managed by the NABC Foundation, the non-profit branch of the National Association of Basketball Coaches."
