NFL Player of the Day Shipping Update

Hey there! I have a shipping update for the winners of the NFL Player of the Day promotion here on Sports Card Blog.

I have sent the packages for the monthly winners and one of the weekly winners. The rest of the weekly winners and bonus winners will go out tomorrow (pending addresses on some of you). To make it up, I have randomly inserted a Panini Black Friday pack into a few of your packages as a little added surprise, so have fun with those.

Thanks again for participating. I will be handing in all the promotion details to Panini tonight or tomorrow, so wish me luck on that front. I thank everyone for their kind words they have expressed to Panini, you didn’t have to do it but I thank you all.

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Final Standings

Well, the promotion has come to an end. It was a great 11 weeks with each and every one of you. I am thankful that I got to give away a ton of great and unique prizes to several people.

The first business to handle is the winner of the special Thanksgiving edition contest for the games on Thanksgiving. It was a hard fought contest with some close scores but here is that leaderboard:

Matt G. – 8

Shane K. – 8 (Tiebreaker Winner!)

Jay R. – 7

Edwin G. – 7

Patrick P. – 6

Weirdmaniac – 5

KJ L. – 5

Harley E. – 4

Evan – 4

Madison V. – 3

RJ R. – 0

The next order of business is the winner for the week…here is the leaderboard, some scores were absolutely astonishing. I wanted people to play to their strengths to try and catch others and boy did they.

Michael G. – 19

Evan – 17

Weirdmaniac – 14

Edwin G. – 13

Harley E. – 8

RJ R. – 7

Patrick P. – 7

KJ L. – 7

Matt G. – 4

Shane K. – 2

So we need to combine those all together and announce the monthly winner for November and also the grand prize winner….

The monthly winner of the box of 2011 Panini Threads football is…..

With a slim two point win over Evan….Edwin G.! Evan had a great charge this week but just came up short by the slimmest of margins. I don’t know what I would have done if this was tied for the month!

And finally, the grand prize winner, who almost lost it all after missing the Thanksgiving contest is obviously Michael G. He has put together a great overall promotion scores and deserves the win. With RJ R. and Edwin G. close by on several occasions, he has fended them off to victory.

I’m sure those who haven’t won anything are waiting to hear if they won one of the three bonus handmade Panini packs…well here are your Panini pack winners.


Matt G.


Thank you all. As a thank you, I may have something coming up in a couple of days, just need to check on the status of a certain package. Until then, thank you all!

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Contest Week 11 Finale

I haven’t tabulated the scores from Thanksgiving yet, but I wanted to make sure that I got this finale up in time for everyone to make their picks. This is going to be similar to last week, but with a little twist. You will be able to make your guesses completely up to you.

So this week is like this, you pick a player and guess their stat line. The only rule is that the player must be a starter and must be a top 10 player at that position. You can find a list of the top players here on

Here are the positions and points:

QB: (+3 within  20 yards, +1 within 50 yards)

RB: (+3 within 10 yards, +1 within 30 yards)

WR: (+3 within 10 yards, +1 within 30 yards)

TE: (+3 within 10 yards, +1  within 20 yards)

K: (+3 within 5 yards, +1 within 10 yards) *Doesn’t matter kicker, as long as starter

DEF: (+3 within 2 tackles, +1 within 4)

TEAM: (+3 within 4 points, +1 within 8 points) *Any team playing on Sunday/Monday

I will be tabulating the scores for Thanksgiving shortly and will announce the winner along with this winner on Tuesday. As well as the grand prize and monthly prize winners as well. Oh, and a thank you giveaway should occur on Tuesday or Wednesday too. So thank you all for visiting the official NFL Player of the Day website and joining in on this promotion. If you haven’t visited yet, please make sure you visit that site and check it out for me!

Oh, and the winner will receive the final NFL Player of the Day t-shirt and card set.

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Thanksgiving Edition

The Thanksgiving edition is here just for those games that we play on turkey day. We have 3 great games playing on this American holiday:

Packers @ Lions

Dolphins @ Cowboys

49ers @ Ravens

Tiebreaker: Total number of rushing yards for all 3 games.

Well maybe two of the three of them will be good. The Dolphins have been playing better in recent weeks so let’s hope that ends up as a solid game.

Anyway, this Thanksgiving edition is simple. You guess the winners and the total number of points for each game. You will get 2 points for each team correctly picked to win as bonus points towards the overall and monthly leaderboards. If you are within 7 points of the correct total number of points, you will get a bonus point. The tiebreaker will determine the winner.

The winner will receive a set of the NFL Player of the Day Rookie Review cards along with a pre-made pack of Panini cards, including an auto or game used card. (I haven’t made the prize yet)

So don’t forget to enter before you eat your turkey and make sure you visit the official NFL Player of the Day site as this promotion is coming to an end soon.

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 10 Winner

Hey everyone, week 10 was a crazy week for picking players who would lead each statistical category. I thought this would give everyone a solid chance of scoring over 10 points. Well, only one person scored over 10 points. But when you have players coming from their couch (Kevin Smith) or rookies throwing for mega yards (Andy Dalton), you know it’s going to be a rough week. I hope some of you at least had one of these players going in fantasy.

Here are the week’s standings and winner:

KJ L: 11
Evan: 9
Weirdmaniac: 7
Edwin G.: 7
Jay R.: 5
Shane K: 5
Madison V.: 5
Matt G.: 4
Patrick P: 4
Harley E.: 4
Michael G.: 4
RJ R.: 3

I apologize for the low scores, but to make up for it, remember you will be able to score some bonus points for the Thanksgiving games. The contest will be posted soon, so make sure you look out for it!

Congratulations goes out to KJ L. for another win. I’d like to see some people step it up! We’ve only had like 4 different winners with over 10 entrants each week. It’s crazy! Thankfully I have the bonus prizes available for some of you :)

On to next week! But remember to click the links to the NFL Player of the Day site and check it out!
