2012 Panini NFL Player of the Day Contest – Week 6

First, we would like to formally congratulate Matt W. for winning Week 5 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 limited sets from various events and some packs to go along with it. Everyone else who beat me or got in on the bonus entry has been entered for the grand prizes, which I scored a great score this week of 9, beating everyone but two of you. Especially good work to those two.

Oh, and we had some bonus cards to go out as well. The randomizer chose… TKDkid for the autographed card!

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

But now, Week 6 is here.

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 a secret special player collectible and a couple NFL Player of the Day promo packs! I’ll tell you the player by his three initials. MJD.

This week, we are going to change it up just a little bit. Choose one of our five product reviews on 2012 NFL products via the Reviews link at the top and let me know which product you enjoy the most and a little something about the product. Just a couple of sentences. This week, I’m giving everyone the same equal opportunity to win. However, that means the only way you’ll be able to gain an entry this week is through the bonus which is two sided, as you must beat me in something and figure out the puzzle question.

Bonus: Total points during this weekend’s NFL games AND via the PaniniPOD website, what other sport does Panini run the Player of the Day promotion?

Remember to post your favorite Panini NFL product reviewed for 2012 below as well.

My official guess for total points? 576. Beat me and answer the question, get an entry.

2012 Panini NFL Player of the Day: Beat The Blogger

Beginning this week will be the 2012 Panini NFL Player of the Day promotion here on Sports Card Blog. We have a ton of prizes that we are giving away, from packs of NFL Player of the Day cards, commemorative sets, autographs, fun man/girl cave items, and even a hobby box of cards.

The theme of this year’s promotion is going to be “Beat the Blogger”. I will be posting contests every Thursday once again this year, for the games slated on Sundays and Mondays. I will also be posting my own answers for the contest. If you beat me, you get one entry into the monthly and grand prizes. The person with the highest score will win the weekly prizes. Pretty simple.

Make sure you look out for special ways to get entries and look out for our giveaways we will be having on our Twitter and Facebook pages during the promotion for some extra free stuff.

All I ask in return for running this program is you click the banner and check out the official Panini Player of the Day website. There, you can find out more about the hobby shop portion of the program and get involved.

So get ready for another great season of contests and prizes. It’s a little easier this year to get involved, so let’s have some fun.

Win a Minor League Baseball Contract

That’s right, announced the other day, in select packs of 2012 Topps Heritage Minor League, you will be able to find entries into a contest to win your very own one day contract with the Corput Christi Hooks, as well as get your own 2013 Topps baseball card. Topps is really innovating with real life experiences included in your card collecting experiences. I love it.

The official press release from the Topps desk:

“Make YOUR Pro Debut” with the Corpus Christi Hooks and Get Your Own 2013 Topps Baseball Card!

To help launch the 2012 release of Topps Heritage – Minor League Baseball Edition, Topps is offering one lucky collector the once in a lifetime experience of being a professional baseball player for an entire day with a Minor League Baseball franchise and then have their very own “Pro Debut” Topps baseball card included in the first Minor League Baseball release of 2013.

Topps, Minor League Baseball and the Corpus Christi Hooks present the “Make YOUR Pro Debut” promotion!

For their Pro Debut, the lucky collector will be flown to Corpus Christi, Texas for a regular season game in 2013 to suit-up with the Corpus Christi Hooks – Double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros.  The winner will receive their own locker in the Clubhouse and be outfitted with their own professional uniform and equipment.

Once dressed and equipped, the collector will hit the field with the Hooks and participate in pre-game team activities including stretching, batting practice & shagging (fly balls).  The winner will then start the game by walking out the Hooks’ lineup card and throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

In additional, the lucky collector will be interviewed in the broadcast booth and, to cap off the entire experience, the “newest Hook” will meet and greet Club owner and baseball legend, Nolan Ryan who will be making a special appearance at the game.

Finally, Topps will memorialize the lucky collector’s experience with an official “Pro Debut” baseball card which will be unveiled in the 2013 Minor League Baseball release of “Topps Pro Debut”.

To Make Your Pro Debut:

Look for special “Make Your Pro Debut” cards randomly inserted into packs of Topps Heritage – Minor League Baseball Edition, in stores September 12th 2012.  Follow the instructions on the card to enter the contest which will include writing an essay on “Why You Should Make Your Pro Debut.”  The Essay must be submitted to Topps for review by December 1st at the address below.  The best essays will be voted on by Topps collectors to determine the winner by January 15th.
