Unboxing Panini’s Prize Pack!

If you recall, last week I announced that Sports Card Info was one of three runner-up winners in Panini’s 2013 NFL Player of the Day Hobby Blogger Promotion.  With that great honor came $100.00 and a prize pack.  Well the prize pack came, and it was beyond what I thought it would be.  Take a gander at what was inside.

Last October Sports Card Info was invited to take part in the 2013 Panini NFL Player of the Day Hobby Blogger Promotion.  If you recall, Sports Card Info’s involvement in this promotion meant holding a contest jam-packed with a ton of great prizes.  It was the largest contest held in Sports Card Info’s six year history.  I’m happy to announce that Sports Card Info is one of three runner-up winners that took part in this promotion.  What does that mean?  That means Sports Card Info wins $100.00 and a prize pack from Panini.  Thanks again to everyone that participated.

Here is a copy of the e-mail Sports Card Info received:

Panini Super Bowl XLV Prize Mailday

I was one of the lucky 12 winners in Panini’s Super Bowl XLV contest.  To enter, all I had to do was show a picture of myself holding my favorite championship card.  I picked my Bob Griese 2005 Donruss Classics – Classic Pigskin relic.

Take a look at what I won.

This was the picture and entry I used to win.  I put myself on a Lil’ Teammate 🙂


Having a perfect season is something the ’72-’73 Miami Dolphins did, and I highly doubt any other team in the NFL will do it again. One of my favorite cards is my Bob Griese 2005 Donruss Classics – Classic Pigskin relic. It sits atop my Miami Dolphins shelf with pride overseeing all my other cards. I would love to see more cards commemorating their perfect season. There are a lot of great players from that team that don’t have modern day cards.

2010 Cup Chase Prize Set Update

The other day I received a question about the status of the 2010 Press Pass Cup Chase prize sets.  These were inserted one per box and if the driver featured on the front won a particular race the collector could redeem it for a special Cup Chase set.  This afternoon I received the following update from my contact at Press Pass on when these will be shipping out.

The Cup Chase prize sets will be mailed out during the first half of December. The 2010 Champion card will be shipped at a later time to collectors who submitted a Cup Chase redemption that featured the 2010 Champion (which we won’t know until the last race on Nov. 21). We didn’t want hold up sending all of the prize sets just to wait on the Champion card that only affects a minority of the prize-set winning collectors.

Here is Sports Card Info’s entry:

I don’t want to sound arrogant, but I probably have one of the most organized sports card collections in the world.  My collection consists mainly of Phillies, Dolphins, Dan Marino, Scott Rolen, and relic cards of older players.  But I’m one of those collectors that has the constant urge to bust a box of cards, which means that I usually have a lot of cards to keep organized.  My Phillies, Dolphins, Dan Marino, Scott Rolen, and autographed cards are all placed in individual albums.  The baseball and football base cards are all in white cardboard boxes.  If I pull any serial numbered inserts or rookie cards with Chrome stock I always place them in either the baseball or football top loader box.  Since I open a bunch of boxes which usually yield jerseys and autographs of less desired players, I have two white boxes for baseball and football memorabilia cards.  In my office I have a few shelves hanging on the wall that contain some of my most valuable cards.  I just can’t seem to place them in a box where I wouldn’t see them.  I learned my lesson the hard way when not keeping your collection in order.  When I first started collecting, I would mix baseball and football cards together.  After years of doing that over and over again, I realized that it was really difficult to find something I thought I might have.  Over a period of a few weekends, I separated all my cards by sport and have kept it that way ever since.  Now you won’t catch me even placing a card upside down in a box.


I would really like to try a contest.  Not only is it fun for the readers, but it also brings more attention to the site.  Before a contest were to take place, we need to raise funds for a prize.  I thought we could shoot for a goal of $80.00 and the prize would be for a sealed box of 2008 Topps Heritage baseball cards.  Once the site raises enough we can have a contest.  If you feel like you want to donate, click the PayPal Donate button on the left, or you can click on the Donate tab at the top of the site.  Donations are completely voluntary and are up to you.  Under the donate tab, I will always keep a current balance of the account so you can see how far we have to go.  Thanks.
