NFL Players Rookie Premiere Photo Gallery: Day One by Tracy Hackler

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Thursday marked the unofficial start to the 2010 NFL Players Rookie Premiere with Panini America and Topps getting a head start on acquiring autographs and photography in advance of Saturday’s extravaganza at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Panini America and Topps were situated in adjacent meeting rooms at the Loews Santa Monica Beach hotel as players stopped by throughout the day and into the night as they arrived at the hotel. One of the night’s last arrival’s — Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow — created the biggest splash and seemed genuinely happy to be there. In fact, with precious few exceptions, the more than 20 players arriving Thursday were lighthearted, engaging and admittedly appreciative of the opportunity. The true test, of course, will be if they still feel the same way late Saturday evening.

Today, more than 18 players will join Panini America and NFL Players at the Walmart Supercenter in Oxnard, Calif., from 1 to 3 p.m. PST for an event that will include pack wars and autograph signing sessions. Beckett will be there, so stay tuned to coverage of the event.

Here’s a quick gallery of photos taken inside the Panini America room on Thursday.
