Panini Instant 2017 NFL Draft Main

PHILADELPHIA — Thirty-two different times last night during a wild first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, league commissioner Roger Goodell (or a special guest announcer) called out a name and made a dream come true for one of the most talented young football players on the planet. And just minutes (sometimes seconds) later, Panini America responded by revealing that player’s Panini Instant 2017 NFL Draft trading card.

Thanks to the real-time nature of the Panini Instant platform, those special Rookie Cards are available to fans and collectors now. From first overall pick Myles Garrett to 32nd selection Ryan Ramczyk, the Draft-updated RCs will be available to purchase in base versions and versions limited to 10 and one for just seven days. Many of the 1/1 versions sold out before last night’s first round even began.

And on one of the most exciting nights on the NFL calendar, the players themselves and some of their high-profile new teammates, helped spread the word . . .

In addition to capturing those seminal, stage-crossing moments from the players in attendance last night during the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Panini America also delivered NFL-updated cards for the rookies who weren’t there, creating an exciting, real-time reveal that kept the social media universe buzzing well into Friday morning.

Over the course of the next two days, Panini Instant will update the 2017 NFL Draft set with 15 additional cards designated currently as Wild Cards.

Just in case you missed any of the live Twitter reveals last night, we’ve provided a compelling recap in the gallery that follows. Be sure to check out the Panini Instant NFL page now to get your cards before the ordering window closes — and stay tuned for additional coverage of the 2017 NFL Draft.
