Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 5 Contest

Week 5 of the promotion is here, we are just about at the halfway point. There will be 11 contests so there really is no halfway point, but you know what I mean. Anyway, with Week 5 comes a different type of Pick ‘Em style contest testing your skills on team in each division. I was going to have a special contest based around a prize I wanted to give out this week, but the team I would be running the contest around has a bye this week. So instead, we have this…

Divisional Hi-Lo Pick ‘Em

Basically it works like this. Pick, by division, which team in that division will score the most points (HI) and the least points (LO). And also predict the score. So your response would look like this, for every NFL division.

AFC East:

Hi – Buffalo (38)

Lo – New England (3)

And then so on for the AFC North, AFC South, AFC West, and then the same for the NFC. You will get one point for guessing the correct team and a bonus point if you guess the correct amount of points for each team. So you have the opportunity to score 16 points, although that would be very impressive.

Get it? Every division in the AFC and NFC, team with the highest and lowest score, and the score you think it will be. Remember, there are 6 teams on a bye this week. If you need a schedule, you can click here.

The winner will receive an official Wincraft NFC felt pennant featuring the NFC’s greatest stars. And it’s pretty big too. I’ll have a video up of the prizes by the weekend.

If you have any questions, please send me an email and I’ll explain it more if you don’t understand what I’m asking. Good luck! This one will be tough! And if you haven’t visited the official Panini NFL Player of the Day site or you haven’t looked again because you want me to win the best promotion, please click the banner to visit the site!

And in case you missed the announcement on the Facebook page or the Twitter page, anyone who does not win a prize throughout the duration of this promotion will be randomized to win one of 3 handmade mystery packs featuring some base, inserts, and a game used card from a recent Panini review! This is to thank more of you for participating and visiting the NFL Player of the Day site!

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Update

The goods are in for the Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day contests!

A big box of goodies arrived at my front door last night with all the great prizes I will be giving away. With that, I decided to change things up a little bit as far as how the contest works. I want to give everyone a chance to win at least something “big” so I’m going to divide the prizes over the three month period and have a final prize. The prize structure will look like this for the big prizes:

September Monthly winner – Autographed mini-helmet
October Monthly winner – Box of Panini NFL stickers and jumbo Jordan Todman autograph
November Monthly winner – Hobby box of Panini Threads football
Combined points over all 3 months winner – Panini Black Box

I think this way gives everyone the chance to win one of the big prizes no matter when you started joining the contests.

So saying that, we will consider the September monthly winner the current leader of the standings, who is Michael G! He will be receiving the autographed mini helmet! Congratulations to Michael G!

The points will carry over towards the Black Box grand prize, however, the monthly standings will be reset for the rest of October. That gives everyone a blank slate for this month’s prize which starts this Sunday with these Week 4 entries and goes until the last game in October.

I still have some more great stuff to give away including a bobble head, pennants, more t-shirts, and tons of cards! So stay tuned all October and November!

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Contest Week 4

The week 4 contest for the Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day contest is here!

Now, I’ve noticed a couple of people are pulling away from the pack. That is a good thing for them, their NFL knowledge and predicting skills are pretty good. So it’s time to change up the style a little bit this week. Let’s see if I can stump these leaders and get some more people back into the game! (No offense to them, but they are just good!)

This week, predict which player will have the better game.

More yards passing – Drew Brees or Tom Brady?

More yards passing – Cam Newton or Aaron Rodgers?

More yards rushing – Darren McFadden or Maurice Jones-Drew?

More yards rushing – Adrian Peterson or Fred Jackson?

More yards receiving – Wes Welker or Steve Smith (CAR)?

More yards receiving – Vincent Jackson or Mike Wallace?

More sacks – Jason Babin or Jared Allen?

Which team scores more points – Patriots or Packers?

Which team scores the least points – Seattle or Denver?

Better Panini football product – Absolute Memorabilia or Crown Royale? (Free bonus point)

Tiebreaker – How many yards does LeGarrette Blount rush for? (Can’t you tell I’m a Bucs fan yet?)

So here we go. This contest gives you the possibility of 10 points. The winner this week will receive a Panini NFL Player of the Day t-shirt and a set of NFL Player of the Day cards. I should have the prizes in on Friday or Monday if my UPS guessing is correct.

As always, I ask everyone to visit the Panini NFL Player of the Day site (even if you’ve been there already, every click helps!) If Sports Card Blog runs the best promotion for Panini, we will be giving away a hobby box (or more!) to random participants of this contest. My hope is to make sure everyone who enters at least half the contests will get something, even if it’s just packs of cards, if we win.


Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 3 Winner

I know this is a late post, but I had to wait until the results of tonight’s Monday Night Football game between my Buccaneers against the Colts. The Colts are in my top 5 power rankings of favorite NFL teams based on my personal dealings with Jim Irsay, owner of the Colts. A late touchdown propelled my Buccaneers to victory and it also propelled Michael G to this week’s prize!

Congratulations goes to Michael G for his performance this week in guessing each game and the spread. He is kind of due for a win after finishing in second or third place each of the other weeks. Edwin G almost had his second victory as well if the game went the other direction.

Michael G will be sent a Panini NFL Player of the Day pennant, or bobblehead, I’m not sure which I promised. But he won something! The prizes should be in this week. If these prizes happen to be team or player specific, I will let you know.

So again, congratulations and look out for the next contest coming in a couple days, unless there is a Thursday game, in which the contest will be up tomorrow!

Stay tuned all season long for more contests every week just like this and do me a solid and visit the NFL Player of the Day website. Even if you’ve been before, every little bit helps for this promotion. If I run the best promotion as deemed by Panini, I will give away some more great stuff including a hobby box or two of cards!
