Annoucement: NFL Player of the Day Will Be Returning to Sports Card Blog

I may be in Italy, home of Panini, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still make announcements.

Sports Card Blog has been chosen once again to participate in the online version of the 2012 Panini Player of the Day promotion. And once again, we will have tons of opportunities to give something away to all those diehard football collectors out there.

With contests running throughout the promotion to win fabulous items from Panini, it’s another huge chance for collectors to win hobby boxes, cards, and other awesome items from the folks at Panini.

So get ready football fans, we’ll have more information coming up soon on what and how you can win awesome prizes.

As a reminder, the winner receives a Panini NFL Player of the Day t-shirt and set of cards.

Drum roll please…

Well that picture isn’t that great. But if you look closely, it says Matt G.

So a big congrats to Matt G. Personally, I think it’s about time the randomizer gave him some love. I’ll be emailing you shortly for your address.

Look for another new contest starting tomorrow that should be a great one. I’ll have to put something totally awesome in that one since it will last until the official blogoversary date.

Stay tuned!

Blogoversary Contest #3

And the contests just keep on coming to celebrate our one year blogoversary.

This time it’s another simple contest for prizes that I won again on Field Level View during their NFL Player of the Day contest. (Hey, I wanted a chance to open a Black Box too!) The prize winnings here include a NFL Player of the Day t-shirt along with a full set of NFL Player of the Day cards and Rookie Review cards! (Minus Andre Johnson, blame FLV for that!)

So it’s a pretty sweet package. I’ve been saving it for the blogoversary.

Another simple entry into this contest as well. Just tell me your favorite NFL football team in the comments below to enter. This giveaway will end on Monday, April, 16, 2012, at 11:59PM PST.

And stay tuned for more contests running all April long from

How Did Sports Card Blog Do in the NFL POD Promotion?

Well the results have been tallied from all the blogs and sites invited to do the NFL Player of the Day promotion with Panini.

While our participants were obviously the best of them all, we were not able to come home with the grand prize of 10 hobby boxes of Panini product. While that may have been the ultimate goal on my end, I was able to achieve the next best thing.

We won the runner-up prize for the (second) best promotion put on by those invitees! So a big thank you goes out to everyone who made this happen. Of course, a big thank you goes out to Panini. But also, I want to thank each and every one of our 22 participants. With our weekly promotions, we were able to accumulate a huge number of impressions for the NFL POD ads and clicks.

So I thank you all for having fun with me in this promotion.

Want to see what I was able to snag as my prize?

A 2011 Panini NFL Player of the Day autograph of Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks! While I’m not a Seahawks fan, even though I live in the Pacific Northwest, this would make great trade bait towards my favorite team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

So again, I thank you all for helping get me as far as we could get and I hope everyone enjoyed playing the games and enjoyed your prizes. Hopefully we can try this again next year!
