First, we would like to formally congratulate Jacob for winning Week 2 of the Panini NFL Player of the Day contest here on Sports Card Blog. He netted some sweet swag for the victory, including a NFL POD pennant and some Panini promotional packs to rip. Everyone else who beat me or got in on the bonus entry has been entered for the grand prizes, which was just about everyone due to my terrible picking skills. As it goes, I lose, you win.
But now, Week 3 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 2. 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 entry as well for those who participate in the bonus at the bottom.
This week, the person with the most points will win a 2012 Panini Sticker Football album with a few packs of stickers to start your collection, and a couple NFL Player of the Day promo packs.
