Panini America 2015 NFLPA Rookie Premiere Saturday Main

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 2015 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 HQ 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 2015 NFL rookie class, getting to know the 41 young stars who will drive the football card market for the rest of this year and beyond. From Jameis Winston to Marcus Mariota and everyone in between, the stacked 2015 NFL rookie crop is as impressive off the field as it is on it.

We provided live coverage of Panini America’s intense Saturday activation all day long yesterday on the company’s Twitter and Instagram. But if you missed any of that action (shame on you!), we’re providing just a glimpse of yesterday’s brilliance in the gallery that follows.

We also brought you complete coverage of what we were doing earlier in the week right here on The Knight’s Lance.

Stay tuned in the coming days and weeks for tons of additional coverage from the 2015 NFLPA Rookie Premiere. Trust us, we have some stuff that will blow your mind. Until then, though, feast your eyes on just some of yesterday’s highlights . . .
