Panini America, the exclusive trading card manufacturer of the NFL and NFL Players Association (NFLPA), in conjunction with NFL Players Inc., the licensing and marketing arm of the NFLPA, today unveiled the inaugural edition of the NFLPA Panini Trading Card Index, a new quarterly report which will rank the top-performing football players in the licensed trading card industry.
