2012 Panini NFL Player of the Day Finale

The finale is finally here. The end of the Sports Card Blog 2012 Panini NFL Player of the Day promotion has come to an end. Let’s start with the Week 9 winner…

The Week 9 Winner of the Panini NFL Player of the Day contest was none other than Evan L. who predicted all three players who did better than my 3 chosen players. Well done by Evan! The bonus card randomly goes to Jonathan H.! Congrats to both of you for winning the last week of the contest.

Now onto what you all have been working so hard for this year. The box of 2012 Panini Rookies & Stars football and the jumbo Andy Dalton Private Signings autograph 6×8. After tallying up all of the entries and running them through the funky randomizer the winners are…

Box of 2012 Panini Rookies & Stars Football – Matt W.

Andy Dalton Private Signings Jumbo Autograph – Evan L.

It looks like that it really paid this year to get as many entries as possible! Congrats goes out to the winners and the prizes will begin shipping on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Please make sure I have your address if you were a winner.

Thank you and a big thank you to Panini for providing the awesome sponsorship of the program once again this year.

UPDATE: All items have been sent except for Shane K. (Need a bigger box!) and Matt W. (No Address)

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.
