Contest Time Our LIVE Halftime Box Break And More Chances To Win Great Panini America Football Cards

What if I told you there was a chance that you could win some really cool Autographed Rookie cards, possibly of this year’s offensive or defensive Rookies of the Year – Robert Grifffin III and Luke Kuechly or last year’s ROYs Cam Newton and Von Miller?  How about other rookies from this year like Andrew Luck, Doug Martin, Trent Richardson, Russell Wilson, and Alfred Morris or last year like A.J. Green, DeMarco Murray, Julio Jones, Randall Cobb and someone you may have heard of recently, Colin Kaepernick?  That’s just the rookies. There is a whole slew of veterans and even the possibility of pulling a HRX video card #/10.

It would be great, right? Now here is the catch.  We wont know what we are given away because it is all still sealed in these boxes. 
Thanks to the good folks at Panini America, we will be breaking these boxes all day and giving the cards away. That’s two boxes each of 2011 Panini Totally Certified Football, 2012 Panini Elite Football and 2012 Panini Prominence Football.  But the biggest part of the day will be the LIVE Halftime Box Break.  At the end of the second quarter, we will be broadcasting live via Ustream. For about 15-20 minutes I will break at least one, possibly two and maybe even three of these boxes.  The one thing I can guarantee you is I will not go past Halftime festivities.  I don’t want you to miss a second of the game. 

During our live break I will give you a code.  It could be a specific card we pull, it could be a notable play from the first half.  I’ll explain how you redeem that code during the box break.  Only those of you who redeem the code will be eligible to win some of the cards from our live break.  They could be monster hits or not.  The hope is this is fun, regardless.

How can you catch our Ustream feed?  There are a lot of ways.  On the net you can head to our Ustream page  We will also set up a feed here on our blog and on our Twitter feed, like this one.

Video streaming by Ustream
If you follow us on Facebook there is a Ustream Live box on the upper right of our page that looks like this.

You can click on that and visit our dedicated Ustream Facebook page, (or use this link to go there directly OUR FACEBOOK USTREAM PAGE)  For those of you that will be at parties, like myself, you can view any of these on you mobile device/smartphone or you can download the Ustream Mobile app and watch from there.

The only thing to keep in mind is when you see the off-air symbol turn red,
that means we are live.  In some cases you will still have to click on the blue arrow
to start the feed and then wait past a 30 second commercial before you can watch the break live.

If you want a shot at any of the cards the are not set aside during the live break, and also these Panini NOLA exclusives,  

you only have to do 2 things. 1 - follow us on our blog, or on Twitter or like us on our Faceook page and 2 - let us know your prediction for the final score of the game by leaving a comment here on the blog, or tweeting to us on Twitter or leaving it on our Facebook page.  Many of you have done this already, so please, only do this once.

And if you haven’t checked out Panini America’s blog The Knight’s Lance, or followed them on Twitter, you owe it to yourself to do it.  Using their hashtag #PaniniWildCard, they will be giving away plenty of prizes all day to so make sure you are following them.
