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

Happy Birthday to – With Prizes

That’s right,, your favorite sports card blog, is having it’s first birthday party. And everybody is invited!

April 23, 2012, is the official date of the first birthday but we decided we are going to make the party last an entire month. So April will be now be known as celebration month!

In one year we’ve made some great strides in the sports card collecting community. We’ve got a great relationship with card companies like Panini America and Upper Deck. We’ve interviewed some great people within the hobby like Panini’s Tracy Hackler, Adam of DA Card World, and Tom Fish of Blowout Cards. We ran a great promotion for the NFL Player of the Day program with Panini. And we’ve posted on the blog at least once a day since the blog was created, giving you information about the products you love and other fun hobby news.

We’ve also done what I consider to be a great achievement that I didn’t expect and have received well over 100,000 visitors in the year since the blog was created.

I’m going to be giving away prizes all month long. Cards from my reviews, t-shirts, promotional items, and whatever else I can think of will be given away all April. All you have to do is keep watching this site, the official Twitter, Facebook, and maybe even the YouTube (which I’ve totally been slacking on, and I apologize). So make sure you follow, Like, subscribe, or do whatever you have to do to stay in the loop.

So to start the action this month, I’m going to be giving away a great promotional item from Panini.

This promotional card from Panini was given away only at the Super Bowl Experience in Indianapolis prior to Super Bowl 46. It features a great looking manufactured patch of the Super Bowl logo. Perfect for a Super Bowl historian, Giants fan, or an angry Patriots fan to burn.

Here’s how to enter: Just post a comment on this post. We’ll start it off easy. Also, if you own a blog or other website, I will give you a bonus entry for posting a link to this contest.

The winner will be announced on Wednesday, April 4, 2012. So you have until 12pm PST on Wednesday, April 4, to get your entry in.

Stay tuned throughout the month of April for more awesome prizes and thank you for helping this blog get to where it is today.


Snow Stormin’ and Elite Extra Edition Winners

Hey there, had a couple of contests we need to decide some winners on…

First up is the winner of the random Elite Extra Edition autograph…and that is Todd! Congratulations! I’ll be shooting you an email for your address so I can send you a few cards from that product for you to check out yourself, including an autograph!

And the winner of the various Upper Deck stuff is….Jesse Reynoso! I’ll be sending you an email as well to get your address so I can send you a ton of UD stuff just for reading and commenting on the blog.

As always, check the blog for contests (especially after reviews…hint, hint) and you can be our next winner!

Still ongoing is the search for a big Texas and Oklahoma fan! Got one entry in and looking for more fans of those colleges!

Snow Stormin’ Contest

Well I need to batten down the hatches for this snow storm that is going on right now and will last until tomorrow. Our once a year Oregon snow storm is usually a huge deal and since I live at around 1,000 feet, I’m going to get it pretty good. So I’m giving away stuff. Solid reasoning? I think so.

While I still have to do a “Review Deus” of 2011-12 Upper Deck Series I hockey and show what I got and talk more about that fun product, the snow coming down means I got stuff to do. So I’m leaving it up to you guys to provide your own fun, in contest form.

I’m giving away some cards from the Upper Deck reviews.

Here’s what we will do. Read the reviews of 2011 UD University of Oklahoma, 2011 UD University of Texas, and 2011-12 UD SP Authentic basketball and even the mini break of 2011 UD SPGU soccer if you’re feeling lucky. Tell me something positive or negative any of the reviews. For each product you tell me your opinion about, you will get one entry. So you get a total of 4 entries. The winner will receive a prize pack of SP Authentic basketball cards and a few hits from the reviews/mini breaks, including the UD Series I to come.

Oh, and I’ll be looking for big University of Texas and University of Oklahoma football fans to give away a full or mostly full set of each product. I’ll need some sort of proof but that will be an ongoing thing not decided when these are.

So tell me about those products and win prizes. Easy. Now go!

Contest ends on Sunday, January 21, 2012.

Oh, and I’ll announce the Elite Extra Edition winner at the same time.
