Panini America on Location: Day One at the 2011 NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere

May 19, 2011

LOS ANGELES — A seemingly never-ending line of future NFL superstars filed through the Panini America player lounge on Wednesday, signing autographs, posing for pictures and contributing to an overhwlemingly fruitful first day at the 2011 NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere.

Headlining the guest list on Wednesday were the likes of Marcell Dareus, A.J. Green, Julio Jones, Andy DaltonVon Miller, Blaine Gabbert and Christian Ponder, creating a collection of unique penmanship — on patches, leather pieces, jersey material and cards — that will help drives sales of Panini America football cards all year long.

The exhaustive gallery that follows will provide just a glimpse of the day’s events. The accompanying short video should offer a little more flavor.

Enjoy this exclusive first look and stay tuned for more complete coverage all week long.

      He’s here. He signed last night. He’s the big dude in the Twins hat.

        ahh yeah there he is. Probably the one photo that I skipped past. Not much to see in that one… plus the Twins hat probably subliminally made me sick.

        Nice to see him showing his Minnesota baseball brothers some support, God knows they need it.

        Tracy, thank you for these pictures brother.

    So it looks like AJ Green has signed his Hidden Gem pullout cards…. Am I wrong to assume the jersey pieces for the pullouts cant be called event worn since the Rookie Premiere photoshoot hasn’t taken place yet? Are the jersey pieces from draft day?
