Tampa Bay Bucs rookie Gerald McCoy rips into some Panini America football cards by Chris Olds

What happens when a Denver Broncos fan and a Tampa Bay Bucs rookie collide?

Boxes of football cards get opened, of course.

Join Panini America’s Tracy Hackler as he rips into a couple of NFL boxes with former Oklahoma Sooners standout Gerald McCoy … watch for the rookie’s reaction of finding a former teammate in a pack.

Classic stuff.

Oh, and should we mention that they pulled a 1/1 autograph?

Who was it? Watch and find out …

Panini already readying draft picks’ first NFL cards by Chris Olds

The second round of the NFL Draft hasn’t even begun, but Panini America already has the first NFL cards of at least three rookies signed and printed for an upcoming set.

Panini teased on Friday afternoon three on-card autographs — the Rams’ Sam Bradford, the Cowboys’ Dez Bryant and the Bills’ C.J. Spiller — that will be found in 2010 Prestige inside packs of the $4-a-pack product when it arrives on May 13.

Prestige will include four autograph or memorabilia cards per box — one autograph guaranteed — and it will include the first cards noting players’ new teams.

Prestige will include 24 Rookie Cards per box as well as three Extra Points parallels and a dozen inserts. Each case will include one autographed card from the following players: Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Drew Brees, Jimmy Clausen, Bradford, Colt McCoy, Tim Tebow, Spiller,  Bryant, Jahvid Best and Jonathan Dwyer.

See all three cards after the jump.
