Panini America Delivers One Final Glance at 2016 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl Weekend
LONG BEACH, Calif. — One of the most productive signing sessions of the entire NFL product season took place late last week in conjunction with the 2016 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl inside an often-packed, always-entertaining Panini America suite at the host hotel. Beginning Wednesday evening, 14 of the top rookies from the 2015 NFL Draft spent two-plus days swapping stories and signing autographs.
By Friday night, the assembled star power (Todd Gurley, T.J. Yeldon, Melvin Gordon, Jay Ajayi, Ameer Abdullah, Leonard Williams, Karlos Williams, Ty Montgomery, Jeremy Langford, Jamison Crowder, Dorial Green-Beckham, Matt Jones, Stefon Diggs and Nelson Agholor) had left its indelible mark all over upcoming products such as 2015 National Treasures Football and 2015 Flawless Football, and on current releases such as 2015 Contenders Football and 2015 Crown Royale Football.
On Saturday, attention turned to the 2016 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl FanFest Presented By Panini America, a daylong, fan-friendly affair on the main concourse of StubHub Center that featured interactive elements from the Panini America mobile tour, free player autograph signings, live group breaks and more. We brought you a preliminary peek at all of the festivities over the weekend. Today, we offer one final glimpse at the winning weekend.
