Lights, Camera, Action: Rookie Cards Arrive from the 2017 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

2017 Panini Instant NBA RPS23

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — Well, that didn’t take long. Within minutes of being photographed yesterday during the 2017 Panini America NBA Rookie Photo Shoot, the 39 players in attendance already had appeared on their first NBA Rookie Cards thanks to the real-time Panini Instant platform. The cards, available now for a limited time, received rave reviews from the players themselves yesterday. And judging by the early response, fans and collectors are fond of them as well.

Each player’s Panini Instant card is available in an unnumbered base version as well as rare parallels numbered to 10 and only one. In a true testament to the excitement being created by one of the most exciting NBA rookie classes in years, many of the parallel versions have already sold out. In the gallery that follows, we showcase all 39 players in the set. Before the gallery, though, we provide a few of the Twitter highlights from yesterday’s player reveals.

Now, to the gallery . . .

    You can tell from some of the player’s comments how amped they are to have their first official rookie cards produced, must be a dream come true. Thanks Tracy!
