Behind the Scenes with Andrew Luck at his First Panini Authentic Public Signing

February 02, 2013


MANDEVILLE, La. — On Thursday evening inside the cozy confines of Chuck’s Sports Cards, north of New Orleans just over the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, 2012 Rookie of the Year candidate and Panini Authentic exclusive Andrew Luck delivered yet one more memorable performance for football fans during his first public autograph signing.

During the hour-long special event held in conjunction with this week’s Super Bowl XLVII festivities, Luck showcased his spectacular, fan-first personality that likely earned a healthy new contingent of Indianapolis Colts diehards deep in the heart of Saints country. Luck was engaging, warm and accommodating throughout the signing, and was nice enough to stick around afterward to bust a box of 2012 Prizm Football.

We’ll have more on that must-see episode of Panini Unwrapped later. For now, though, enjoy this fascinating video that takes you behind the scenes at Luck’s first public signing, including up-close looks at some rather historic game-worn and game-used memorabilia from Luck’s fantastic rookie season. After the video, stick around for a captivating gallery of images from the event, too.
