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.
