Panini America Reviews Action-Packed First Days of the 2014 NFLPA Rookie Premiere

May 30, 2014

Panini America 2014 NFLPA Rookie Premiere First Two Days (61)

LOS ANGELES — In a whirlwind first two days at the 2014 NFLPA Rookie Premiere, one of the most important events on the collecting calendar every year has more than lived up to its sterling reputation, delivering a year’s worth of highlights — and seemingly an entire season’s worth of autograph cards — for Panini America. One by one, more than 40 of the biggest rookie superstars in the NFL have made their way to the spacious Panini America Player Lounge to sign autographs, including on-card gems for 2014 Prestige Football, 2014 Elite Football and more.

While we could sit here and wax poetic about the lasting memories created in the Panini America Player Lounge on Wednesday and Thursday, we thought we’d let a gallery full of compelling photos from the first two days do the talking for us. Friday marks the final day of player autograph rotations here at the host hotel. Tomorrow, the 2014 NFLPA Rookie Premiere will move to the historic Los Angeles Memorabilia Coliseum for the main event. Stay tuned to the Panini America Twitter account — following the hash tag #ScoreRookie — and The Knight’s Lance for live coverage of all the action.

Until then, though, enjoy the gallery.

    Wow Prestige and Elite look better than ever! One question, where is my boy Johnny Football? Living in Ohio, my girls and I are so excited to collect his auto’s rookie cards! This is going to be a great year to collect FB cards because this Rookie class is amazing! Keep up the great work Panini!

    Well the RC autos keep getting worse as the years go by. It’s really sad how bad they are and it is making this hobby look bad. Not looking forward to buying any wax this year. 😦

    Great to see so much on card content so early in the release calendar, these guys are definitely keeping their signing hands strong! Thanks Tracy!

    That’s a fabulous gallery! I love the Bridgewater cards, as he’s going to be under Center for my beloved Vikings, and the multi-auto Pen Pals… just ill! Nice to see cards from several releases being signed.
    What’s with the Jersey? It doesn’t bear an auto that I noticed, anyone? Anyone? Hackler? Hackler?

    Stop calling the insert ” Inscriptions ” unless they are actually going to inscribe something along with their signature.
