If you haven't participated in our weekly Football Challenge Questions, you can still submit your answers for a chance to win some great prizes. Besides that, I wanted to do something cool to give away some additional prizes this weekend. It might even involve something you were already planning on doing anyway.
During telethons, companies will often match donations during a specific time period. Some jobs offer matching contributions to employees retirement funds. So why not match packs of 2012 Panini America NFL Player of the Day cards? At least that’s what I’ve been thinking.
So starting today, Friday, October 12, 2012 and ending on Sunday Evening, October 14, 2012, All About Cards will give you a chance to have the pack you win this weekend at your local hobby shop through the Panini America NFL Player of the Day promotion matched.
So here are the details on how this will work.
To be eligible for a matching pack, you must be following us here on the blog, on our Facebook page or on our Twitter feed, no exceptions.
To get a pack to be matched, follow these steps:
1 – Use this link to get to the Panini NFL POD site. Then use the Hobby Shop Locator to find the card shop nearest to you that is participating in the Panini NFL POD program.
2 – Make sure to your grab a camera and then go visit that shop.
3 - Follow the rules of the promotion. (A summary of the rules can be found using this link, but it is best to ask your local card shop owner how to play.)
4 – If you win a pack by pulling the Player of the Day or any of the wild cards, make sure you open that NFL POD pack in the shop.
5 – Take a picture in your local card shop that includes all of the following;
A – The card that you pulled of the Player of the Day with the wrapper from that pack.
B - The cards from your NFL POD prize pack along with that foil wrapper.
C – Something that shows the local card shop you are in.
6 – Send the photo to All About Cards by either posting it on our Facebook page, tweeting it to @AllAboutCards, or emailing it to AACNFLPOD (at) Yahoo (dot) com and include where you follow us along with your ID name and the name of the card shop where you won the pack and your shop's Player of the Day.
With a limit of one photo per person, all photos that are submitted correctly will become eligible to receive one matching pack from All About Cards. The deadline for submitting your photo is Sunday, October 14, 2012 at 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time.
If the amount of eligible photo submissions exceeds the amount of packs I have allocated for this particular part of the overall promotion (please remember, All About Cards is not Panini America, I have a limited supply) all packs will be awarded via random drawing.
Every eligible photo submission, regardless of whether your pack is matched or not, also earns you 5 bonus entries in our Main Prize Pool.
