Drafted One Minute, Rookie Cards the Next: Panini Instant’s Ready for 2017 NFL Draft

April 26, 2017

2017 NFL Draft Panini Instant

During tomorrow night’s first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, history will be made and dreams will come true during an electric opening night in Philadelphia — and Panini America will be ready to celebrate by making a little trading card history of its own. Beginning at 2 p.m. CST tomorrow, the Panini Instant website will launch Panini Instant 2017 NFL Draft cards for all 32 first-round selections. Roughly five hours later and one by one, those cards will be updated in real-time as each selection is made, meaning each new draftee’s first trading card with their new NFL team will be available just minutes after their name is called.

Of course, that also means that fans, collectors and speculators will have a good five-hour window to acquire the cards by pick number instead of player, which certainly could make things interesting. Be sure to check the Panini Instant website beginning tomorrow at 2 p.m. for additional details.

Following the first round, Panini Instant will reserve 15 “wild card” slots for key players selected during the second and third days of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance and the Panini America social feeds for additional coverage.

    It would be awesome if there was some memorabilia cards in this, from the draft hats & jerseys.

    Cool idea. I wish you would seriously consider changing that BRIGHT YELLOW logo to something more muted. My 2 cents. I’ll be watching for the Packers pick. Go Pack Go!!!

    This is a great way for collectors to interact with the events of the draft in real time, can’t wait to have a dual screen experience going to watch how the Instant cards roll out. Thanks Tracy!

    So if I want to have a Panini Instant card of a certain player, I’m basically out of luck? If I was buying by team, this would be great. I’d hate to buy a number hoping for a certain player or even if I buy my team’s number only to see them trade down and then I wind up with something else.
