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.

    Wow, thanks for the contest Panini, Tracy, and Scott. I hope to win.

    I am in a tie between this one:

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

    AND this one:

    There are Bieber cards there, the guys must have got a kick out of that.

    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
