Panini America On Location: Day Two at the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere (30 Images)

May 18, 2012

LOS ANGELES — The Panini America team was at its multitasking best Thursday during the second day of the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere. While much of the remained at the host hotel for another fun-filled day of autograph rotations (including appearances by the likes of Justin Blackmon, Michael Floyd, Kendall Wright and Ronnie Hillman), Scott Prusha joined VP of Marketing Jason Howarth across town at Alexander Hamilton High School for a star-studded fitness and football challenge.

In addition to delivering more glimpses of the widely cheered, acetate-aided return of Inscriptions, Thursday also provided the week’s first look at finished cards from the upcoming 2012 Prestige Football (compliments of the efficient Floyd). It’s all detailed in the revealing gallery below.

Oh, and if you missed our Day One recap, you missed a lot. Check it out here — and for a chance to win the very autographed Inscriptions card Robert Griffin III is holding in the main image, like us on Facebook AND leave a comment on our Day One gallery.

    Great cards! I am excited to buy some packs/boxes when they come out! This is one of the better rookie classes for the redskins! Really love those acetate cards! They are awesome! Reminds me of the classic brand back in 92. Also love the rated rookies. Throw back to when I was collecting cards back in school. Thanks for bringing those back!

    More incredible images. Love the look of the cards! The inscriptions look really good. Great job by the design team to get us hooked early before the cards are released!

    Keep up the great work with making us feel like we are there! Thanks for the pics!
