Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Top NFL Rookies Lead List of Panini America’s New Arrivals

December 22, 2011

The not-so-distant future of Panini America football cards keeps growing brighter and brighter. With every passing day, the top rookies from the 2011 NFL Draft Class continue filling our mailbox with the most welcomed holiday packages imaginable: Autographed Rookie Cards — and accompanying parallels and inserts — for late-season releases such as 2011 Plates & Patches, 2011 Limited and 2011 Playoff Contenders.

In the last two days alone we’ve received bona fide collecting cornerstones from promising first-year passers such as Cam Newton, Jake Locker and Blaine Gabbert. Here, take a look . . .

    Some like Picasso, Klee, & Kandinsky, others like Cezanne, Matisse & Gaugin. I like… Panini.

    Wow! I would give up a toe or 2 maybe even 3 to own one of those Cam Newton autographs!!!!!. The Limited one is so sweet I cant put into words. Sick stuff Panini! Glad I voted for new NFL arrivals 3 times. Wow. those printing plates are amazing as well. And of course Contenders is always nice to see.

    What do you have against cutting the openings on the shield cards to fit the shields? I know you would have to make a different punch, but it would make those 1/1 cards stand out so much more.

    Why are the shields on the Locker cards from several seasons ago The league switched to the “4X4” star layout several years back? Just seems odd to me that of the 100 plus jerseys he layered on, one on top of the other at the rookie premiere photo shoot that you guys couldn’t give him a jersey from the last 5 years.

      Actually, it wasn’t 100 plus and they weren’t layered on. And the jerseys we use at the Rookie Premiere are acquired directly through NFL PLAYERS.

    I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again Plates with prime swatches and autographs make me weak at the knees they look absolutely FANTASTIC. An NBA release that dropped one or two of those a case would be sweet! That Cam Newton panthers card looks pretty fierce as well.
    Merry Christmas guys!

    Jordan Todman is not on the Chargers and has not played in 1 game this season for the Chargers. Why do you continue to make cards with him on it. It is only week 14 of the NFL season.
