Next Day Autos in 2015 Prestige Football Put Focus on NFL’s Highest-Rated Rookies
Panini America’s iconic “Rated Rookie” term will take on added significance in the upcoming 2015 Prestige Football release when 41 of the highest-rated rookies in the NFL take center stage in the NFLPA Rookie Premiere Next Day Autographs insert wearing . . . what else? . . . their first Rated Rookie T-shirts.
In a minor manufacturing miracle that took place over the course of just a few days during last week’s 2015 NFLPA Rookie Premiere, Panini America officials captured the photography, created the designs, printed the cards and had them delivered to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum by Saturday morning for the players to sign. The result, as you’ll see below, is a unique addition to the venerable Prestige Football brand.
While most of the Panini America photography captured during the 2015 NFLPA Rookie Premiere focused on the action side of things, the imagery selected for the Next Day Autographs insert provides an opportunity to get up close and personal with the NFL’s future superstars. The on-card autographs, of course, help bring their personalities out just a little bit more.
In the gallery that follows, we showcase all 41 cards in a set that promises to be quite scarce when 2015 Prestige Football releases early next month. Enjoy — and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of the 2015 NFLPA Rookie Premiere.
