Win a Panini Totally Certified Darren Sproles 1/1

That’s right. We are giving away a 1/1 we received from our break of 2012 Panini Totally Certified football (spoiler for the review, oops). All the thanks goes out to our over 1400 Twitter followers who stepped up and retweeted this card over 120 times. I promised I would give it away if we got 100 retweets and we got 20% more! Why don’t you check out that beauty below first to get your mouth watering:

To make it even more special, I’ll send the card in an empty Panini “Super Bowl Black Box” to make the opening experience that much more memorable. Or wait, I removed the inner lining that protects the card from the box…um, I’ll figure something out to send it in the box. It may not be as pretty though.

To Win: All you have to do to win is to post a response to this blog post and tell me what you love about the blog or following the Twitter account @SportsCardBlog. Post the response below, get an entry. Simple as that.

Ends: Contest ends on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, at 11:59 PST. Winner will be randomized. One entry per person/household.

2012 Panini NFL Player of the Day – Week 8

First, we would like to formally congratulate Rob F. for winning Week 7 of the Panini NFL Player of the Day contest here on Sports Card Blog. He netted some sweet swag for the victory, including a Panini POD shirt and some packs to go along with it. No one beat me to win entries into the contest, which I was kind of shocked by. How could you not beat a guy loaded up on morphine from kidney stones? C’mon man!

Your bonus card goes to Shane K.! Continuing to have the luck around with him.

The contest ends with week 9, so we are getting close to the end!

But now, Week 8 is here and there is one week to go!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to this year’s 2012 Panini NFL Player of the Day promotion courtesy of the wonderful people at Panini and Sports Card Blog. So you may not have a card shop near you or maybe you don’t have the cash to participate in this in store program…so what? You can still participate here and win some great prizes along the way.

This year’s theme is “Beat the Blogger” so we have a great contest set up for Week 5. Easy and simple to enter.

If you “Beat the Blogger” you will earn 1 entry towards one of TWO grand prizes we are giving away at the end of the promotion – an oversized Andy Dalton Private Signings autograph and a box of 2012 Panini Rookies & Stars football. There will also be a bonus as well for those who participate in the bonus at the bottom.

This week, the person with the most points will win some Panini promotional event packs and some POD packs as well.

This week is all about you, the collectors. Everyone will receive an entry this week just for entering. The person who gets the closest to this serial number without going over will win the weekly prize. Just changing it up a little bit once again since no one beat me last week. (That’s right, had to mention it again.)

This Vincent Jackson card that we pulled from 2012 Panini Certified football is numbered out of 49 copies. What is it numbered to?

Bonus: Using the Panini POD website, Panini has given away more than (x) amount of prizes to collectors through this Player of the Day program. Solve for (x). Randomized winner will receive a random Panini autographed card.

Good luck once again! At least I won’t beat you this time, it isn’t fair if I enter! :)

New Partnership with Dave & Adam’s Card World

I’ve been working on a few things behind the scenes the past couple of weeks and today we have finally finalized a deal on a partnership with one of the biggest online hobby retailers in the United States. Dave & Adam’s Card World (DACW) has long been a staple of the online hobby scene for quite some time now. With their low prices and great customer service, collectors around the world have had their respect and trust in this company, helping it grow with not only an online presence, but several brick and mortar stores in upstate New York.

I’ve done the vast majority of my business over at DACW over the past several years. I’m proud to announce them as my preferred retailer. Not only are they my preferred retailer, I am a premier customer as well. If you spend a certain amount of money with the company in a month, you will get exclusive deals on products through your premier account. This account stays with you even if you go months without a purchase. You will also periodically get emails featuring some of the best deals for premier account holders.

The partnership will not change your experience on this blog besides a side link on the sidebar and links in blog posts to the product in their store, as always, where appropriate.

In celebration of this new partnership, we will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to DA Card World. You can find details on how you can win that on Friday. Also on Friday, make sure you check out their 2012 Black Friday Preview Sale which features several products on sale that you’ll be able to find on Black Friday as well.
