As you can see it was a great break. The location was awesome, Kevin was a great interview and the box we broke had some strong hits.
Don’t know if you saw our review of 2010-11 Donruss Hockey Cards. If you didn’t, here it is.
As you can see, the cards look great and the box we broke had some strong hits.
We’ve been feeling the need for a contest here on the old blog and we wanted to do something Hockey related. We contacted Panini America. As usual, they were extremely generous and agreed to supply us with a prize for our contest. So after two strong boxes of Donruss Hockey we decided to push our luck and go for a third box.
Just like our other boxes, this one did not disappoint. Dare I say it might be the best one we’ve opened yet? Guess what... I just did.
So here are the three prizes you’ve got a shot at in our Stanley Cup Playoffs contest.
Over 200 base cards and 6 Rated Rookies
Inserts and a Zenon Konopka Game Worn Memorabila Card
First Place Grand Prize
Jordan Eberle Rated Rookie Auto
How’s that for some sweet prizes?
Here are the rules for this contest.
1 – You can only enter this contest here on our Blogger site. One entry per person.
2 – You must be following our site for your entry to be valid.
3 – To enter, leave a comment on this post with your prediction for both the Eastern Conference finals and the Western Conference finals. Your entry must include the team you predict will win and how many games it will take. For example – “The Bruins in 6 and the Vancouver Canucks in 5” (Please use the same name in your comment as your follow name.)
4 – Once your entry is posted, you may not change or alter it, so review your entry carefully before sending it. If you delete your entry, you MAY NOT enter again.
5 – You have until May 19th, 2011, 7:00PM EST to enter.
6 – Only one prize can be won per person.
And those are the rules. (By the way, you are allowed to consult a blaster of 2010-11 Pinnacle Cards for your guess. As you can see by using this link, they are very accurate.)
After the Conference Finals are over, we will review the entries and award points as follows:
Guess both winning teams and the number of games in the each series –4 points
Guess both winning teams and the number of games in one of the series - 3 points
Guess one winning team and the number of games of that series - 2 points
Guess both winning teams only – 2 points
Guess one winning team only – 1 point
Get it all wrong – 0 points
Each point you get earns you a slot in our randomized drawing.
“But wait!” you say, “All About Cards always rewards its “early adopters” in contests. What about this one?” We say to you, “Sure! We can do that.”
For our true early adopters we have two bonuses. If you give us your guesses by May 14th, 2011, 7:00PM EST before the first puck is dropped, we will give you 2 guaranteed slots in our random drawing and we will double whatever points you get. So you could potentially wind up with 10 slots in our drawing.
If you give us your guesses by May 17th, 2011, 7:00PM EST we will give you 1 guaranteed slot in our random drawing.
We will announce the winners of our contest on the evening of the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals.
So good luck, enjoy the playoffs and a big thanks to Panini America.
