September Contest Week 1

With the lack of entries for the August Contest, I am not sure on what I am giving away yet for this month due to those lack of entries. If we can average 30 a week, prizes will be much better. We drop below that, they will be average. Good Luck to those who enter! The best way to build entries is to spread the word through RT's, Shares and just be word of social media. Thanks!

WELCOME! This is the first week of our September Contest. Now, compared to monthly contests in the past, this one is different. Instead of picking different winners daily, earning points, having the top three in points win prizes you only need to do this one entry where there will be one winner at the end of this week. This contest will run for three weeks and there will be a total of three winners. Once you have won for this month, you cannot win again as we want to spread the prize love around. Also, once you have won for the month, you will go into the WINNERS CIRCLE where you will not only be randomed to pick a prize for the month (all three names will be randomed and the person at the top of the list from the random picks their prize then so on), but will get a guaranteed spot in October's Monthly Contest. That is the ONLY way to be able to enter October's Contest. which has three prizes including a GRAND PRIZE from BCW Supplies.

This months prizes in the Prize Pot are:

Prizes from Sport Card Collectors: Not Announced Yet

What's In The Mail Box?

Received in this nice Upper Deck NPN mail day awhile back from 2013-2014 Black Diamond. I really like the design of these jersey cards when I opened my own box, but I think this card looks even better than the ones I pulled due to the two-color swatch at the top. Check it out:


Have you ever received an Upper Deck NPN mail day? Let me know what you got!

Winner Of The Pack Gambler Contest!

Well, another great turnout for The Pack Gambler contest! Thanks to everyone who participated! This one was a bit challenging to pick a winner. Nobody had a close score. Some were close in yardage and only 8 of you chose the Bengals. Everything was all over the map. The delay on picking this winner was figuring out the fairest way to get one, so I contacted The Pack Gambler to see what their thoughts were on trying to pick a winner.

We rummaged through a few ideas and they came up with the idea to "go with the closest score and closest yards since no one had them right on, then the closest difference between the score & yards wins." I thought this sounded fair that way everyone who picked the Bengals had a shot. So after spending a good half hour sorting out everything, I finally narrowed down a winner. This winner did really well on their yards which saved the win for them only being 5 yards off. So without anymore delay, the winner of August's The Pack Gambler Contest is....GRADY MALACHOWSKI!!!!

Congrats Grady! Here is what you won!

2012 Dwayne Allen patch /25 and a 2012 Brandon Weeden relic auto /75
Not to mention a 50% off coupon to their STORE. Seems to me there is another great round of prizes!

Please email me at sportcardcollectors@hotmail.com with your address and I will contact The Pack Gambler with it to mail out your prize.

I am sorry about the delay on announcing this winner and next months The Pack Gambler contest might have a different way of doing the score to cut down on all of the confusion and time. Thanks to everyone who entered and PLEASE, PLEASE tell The Pack Gambler thank you for putting these contests on for you guys! Also remember to LIKE them on Facebook and FOLLOW them on Twitter!

That 90's Mail Day: 1997 Spx Football Completion!

FINALLY were the first words out of my mouth when I was able to finish up my 1997 Spx football set. I must say though, I wouldn't have been able to do it without my friends over at Jammin JDcards who helped research and find someone who had everything that I needed. So thanks Jammin!

Here are the final ten cards I needed to finish up my set.

Not a lot of big names in here but definitely some pretty sweet looking cards.

So far in my 90's Spx collection, I have now completed the Spx 1996 football set, got the Dan Marino and Joe Montana inserts and autographs from 1996, and have half a 1996-1997 hockey set and now have this 1997 football set. Who knows where I will go next!

As always, your thoughts are welcomed on this mail day!
