Panini America, Irving, Texas, the exclusive trading card partner of the National Football League (NFL) and NFL Players Inc., announced that it has signed former University of Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch.
Projected as a first-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by some experts, Lynch’s officially licensed trading cards and autographs will hit the market in March.
Lynch also will appear on Panini collegiate and NFL trading card packaging throughout the 2016 season and will take part in Panini marketing initiatives.
“Paxton is one of the most exciting players in this year’s draft and, as a result, his presence in our complete roster of 2016 physical and digital NFL/NFLPA trading card products is critical,” says Mark Warsop, Panini America CEO. “We’re excited to be working with him — not just during his rookie season but for many years to come.”
