Panini America 2014 NFLPA Rookie Premiere Recap (39)
LOS ANGELES — For Panini America officials, departing the NFLPA Rookie Premiere always presents such bittersweet emotions — and that is especially true now that the headline-grabbing 2014 edition officially came to an end late yesterday afternoon. The excitement of capturing and expediting so much spectacular content — images, video, audio, autographs, memories — back to Dallas for the upcoming NFL product season always mixes with the grim realization that another spectacular Rookie Premiere has come to an end.
Over the course of four days in sunny L.A., Panini America interacted, engaged and completely immersed itself in the 2014 NFL rookie class, getting to know the 40 young stars who will drive the football card market for the rest of this year and beyond. From Johnny Manziel to Jadeveon Clowney and everyone in between, the stacked 2014 NFL rookie crop is as impressive off the field as it is on the field.
