Win Cam Newton’s Autographed Hat from the 2011 NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere!

May 22, 2011

LOS ANGELES — As you’ll see in the video below wrapping up Panini America’s action-packed Saturday at the 2011 NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere, Scott Prusha is “jonesing” to give something special away to those collectors who followed the day’s events exclusively on The Knight’s Lance.

Turns out the prize Prusha has in mind is one of our best prizes to date: A Carolina Panthers hat worn and autographed by No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton during the event.

So, how can you win? Easy, and we’ll tell you after you watch the following brief video . . .

To be eligible to win this awesome autographed Newton hat, simply post comments on your favorite photos from our exhaustive gallery chronicling a full-throttle Saturday inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. We’ll give everyone through Monday to comment and then we’ll select one lucky winner at random.

Oh, what the heck. We’re feeling so amped up after a thrilling four days in Southern California that we’re going to give away more autographs from 2011’s top rookies. Two additional commenters will receive Newton-autographed 8 by 10s; seven more will receive 8 by 10s signed by fellow first-round picks.

That’s an amazing 10 prizes total, just by commenting on your favorite Panini America photos from the 2011 NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere.

Have fun, good luck and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of the marquee event, including exclusive interviews with Newton, Mark Ingram, Marcell Dareus, Von Miller and more.

    Would love to replace my ageing Panthers hat with the Cam auto, I doubt it would be a daily wearable! My favorite photo(s) has got to be all the auto letter patches just waiting to be put into play so I can bust some wax latter this year and pull 1 or more?? I’m pretty sure I could find a frame for an 8×10 also, it would be cool to get an early jump with an auto like that and then follow their season hopeing for superstar stats! Thanks Panini and Knights Lance for all the great chances to win big!

    As a Bills fan, love to see those first few shots of the new guys signing their jerseys. My favorite shot has to be the picture of Marcell Dareus in his new #99 uniform, nearly filling the entire frame of the shot as he signs. Love the shot of his #99 Bills helmet, too. Nice sigs, nice shots.

  11. May 22, 2011 2:37 am

    So much to like here. From the great on card autos to the sea of nameplates. But I really like the cards that the players got the opportunity to draw on. You can see their personalities really come out like the one where Cam Newton is doodling on someone else’s card, but most striking for me is Kyle Rudolph writing a saying from his High School days at Elder. The pride in his face showing that card and the fact that he still carries those memories as a major influence in his life is impressive and very personal.

    This is such a good way to shut up all the people who were trying to give you guys crap for SUPPOSEDLY not having Newton and Ingram autos… Haters gonna hate I guess. Love all the card and auto teases that you have posted over the last few days… I’m sure I’m not the only one excited for the wave of 2011 Panini Football products that will be coming out in the coming months! Thanks for the contest and for gathering all the stuff this weekend that we will be chasing!

    There is nothing way cooler than the Pen Pals! Not only do you get the stars of the future of the different teams, you get them all together on one card and NO STICKERS or REDEMPTIONS (at least, I hope not :) ). Those are without a doubt, the cream of the crop of autographs that Panini did over the week.

  26. May 22, 2011 9:02 am

    Great To Finally See All of these players in their NFL uniforms! Thanks Panini For the Contest!

    I LOVE LOVE all those nameplates gathered together and autographed. I look forward to the release of threads every year, as the letterman cards are some of my favorite cards. I think it’s the first time I’ve seen the nameplates uncut, and that is AWESOME!! I think it would be a great idea as a redemption to have an uncut nameplate auto inserted into the threads product.

    I most enjoyed seeing the photos of Cam Newton signing cards and what appears to have been some type of art card. Although, I will admit the vast collection of autographed nameplates was equally exciting.

    I love seeing the group photo and trying to figure out who will have the greatest impact early. I also like seeing Jake Locker wearing #10 for the Titans because that must mean that Vince Young is surely on the move.

    I love all of the on card autographs you guys had them signing throughout the Premiere. Although I’m not a fan of the manufactured patches, the nameplates did look pretty cool all put together. Full nameplate redemptions? :)

  48. May 22, 2011 1:16 pm

    I love the photo with the players sitting at the table in front of all the piles of pics and the Justin Beiber doll front and center.

  49. May 22, 2011 1:56 pm

    I like that the autographed letters look better thought out so that the autographs are legible on them. It’s always been a decent idea that ended up looking terrible in execution. These look like they had space for large autos that didn’t bleed into the fabric.

    Those nameplates look super nice especially all along side each other! It took me a while but I found the Powell nameplate, and then in the photo with all the rookies. I dont know why my favorite pic might be the one with Ingram holding up the saints card. He looked happy to be there and to be starting his NFL career. Hopefully that will be this year though!

  57. May 22, 2011 5:45 pm

    there is nothing like “getting to know you”
    thats what we want to know as we crack into packs and find rookie cards.
    nothing like early exposure to the players themselves and getting to know them.
    as rookies they have so much promise and excitement, and as collectors we have the opportunity to share in that from the very beginning.
    enjoy this type of coverage very much and I hope it will continue with NBA draft right around corner :)
    all the best to Panini, and cant wait and try and pull some of those gems.

    My favorite photo is the one of Mikel Leshoure talking to Ingram. I played ball with Mikel in high school and it’s pretty awesome seeing him take part in the rookie photo shoot. I can’t wait to pick up some of his cards and autos!

  62. May 22, 2011 7:14 pm

    I never knew the players had to wear pads while they signed. Tough gig :D

    • May 22, 2011 8:52 pm

      Not all of them do; it just depends at what point they come to the signing table at this particular station: Either before their action shots (no pads) or after (pads).

  63. May 22, 2011 7:20 pm

    If I win the hat, do I have to wear it sideways?

  64. Eric Hollington permalink

    I just got back into card collecting last year. I was amazed to see so many of the products I ripped into contained auto/memorabilia from the rookie premiere! Being able to see the 2011 rookies wear the jerseys and equipment and sign the cards was really sweet! All I could think of was a crazy hand cramp after signing 100s of autos like these players had to! I liked the Blaine Gabbert jaguar drawing card. I think these are a really unique and creative idea. As a Chiefs fan, I look forward to pulling some Jon Baldwin autos. Thanks Tracy and Panini! Can’t wait for Prestige and beyond!

    I know this may be a year late but that Panini Tim Tebow Stand-up cut out caught my eye over the Cam Newton hat. I know that’s rediculous. But I jumped on collecting Mr. Tim Tebow stuff, because of Mr. Tracy Hackler promoting his skills. I would appreciate the hat, but I’d let you guys donate it to the Boys & Girls club or somethin’

  82. May 23, 2011 4:34 am

    I am just so sincerely happy with the public outreach from this blog. It honestly just seems to get batter and better at keeping us collectors up to date and in the know. During this crappy lock out season, it has literally been this blog and the NFL draft that has kept me connected to my love of the NFL. I LOVE seeing the preview of these new card designs, behind the scenes photos and soon to be products. Those Pen Pals card designs look so clean and refreshing, but the photo of all the hand signed nameplates is phenominal.

    It shows the potential of an auto i can fet if I win, or at least be a placed.

    AND this one:

    Personally my favorite picture is the one of Mikel Leshoure. He played his high school and college ball just down the street from where I live and when Ive met him has seemed like a great guy. My mom even formerly worked with his mother! I really just love that picture because that card he is holding would be a dream of mine to pull from a pack
