Long before Tuesday’s headline-making announcement that Panini America had inked Kobe Bryant to an exclusive multi-year contract, the company had conducted its first signing with the Los Angeles Lakers superstar.

The results of that premiere session — all on-card autographs — will first be unveiled in next week’s release of 2009 Prestige Basketball, a product that, according to company spokesman Scott Prusha, will have zero redemptions.

Until then, here’s a sneak peek at some of the Kobe autographs you’ll find (and a few images of his first Panini memorabilia cards).

    Looks like Kobe needed a new Sharpie. Jeez I’d be ticked if my Kobe auto came out of the pack looking like that.
