Panini America unveils rookie card of 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk

Jun 16, 2020 at 8:35 PM--

Panini America has been unveiling the rookie cards of the 42-member 2020 NFLPA Rookie Premiere Class and did so for the wide receivers on Tuesday. Included in the group is Brandon Aiyuk in his No. 11 San Francisco 49ers jersey.

The 49ers made Aiyuk the No. 25 overall pick in April's draft after trading up from No. 31.

Typically, the NFLPA Rookie Premiere would take place in May in Los Angeles. That's when fans get a first-look at some of their favorite teams' top draft picks in their full NFL uniforms. The event is also a good place for the rookies to discuss and potentially secure contracts for marketing deals.

None of that happened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can view all of the wide receivers below.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.
