Sport Card Collectors Week 3 NFL Picks

Thursday Night:

NYG @ Carolina: Hate to be down on my team..but this is not the same Giants defense and they are completely depleted with injuries...gonna have to go with a hot Carolina running game here: Carolina 34-24

SUNDAY
Tampa Bay @ Dallas: Dallas will not disappoint Mr. Jones again after a rough game on the road. And the way Tampa blew last weeks game with a shaky secondary: Dallas 23-14

Buffalo @ Cleveland: Buffalo is coming off a huge win at home and CJ Spiller is on fire. Cleveland played Cincy tough but...Buffalo 27-17

NYJ @ Miami: NYJ's offense wasn't existent last week and Miami ran the ball down Oaklands throats..Rex Ryan won't allow a rookie qb to beat them or it could be Tebow Time...NYJ 20-13

Kansas City @ New Orleans New Orleans 0-2 for the first time in awhile and they get what they want a team they can possibly beat up on at home. Kansas City is struggling on both sides of the ball..New Orleans wins 27-10

Cincinnatti @ Washington: RG3 has been very impressive so far this season and Cincy has played two close games in which they won and lost. It will be close but I will ride the Redskins at home: Washington 27-20

St Louis @ Chicago: Looks like an easy pick but St. Louis has played tough in both of their games. Jay Cutler is coming off a rough game so look for him to straighten things out in a Bears win at home...Chicago 31-17

San Fran @ Minnesota: Minnesota lost a tough one to Indy and San Fran is among the Elite teams...San Fran wins easily 31-10

Detroit @ Tennessee: Detroit has not looked overly impressive in their first two games..but they are on the road in Tennessee playing a team that looks good at times and struggles at others. Will CJ2k ever make noise again?  Detroit should win but the Titans will keep it close: Detroit 31-17

Atlanta @ San Diego: Two teams on the rise but only one can win and I am going with the home team...San Diego 24-17

Philadelphia @ Arizona: Philly has won two close ones, Arizona has won two close ones...but Philly has the much better team in they can cut down on the turnovers...Philly wins 22-19

Pittsburgh @ Oakland: Pittsburgh dominated NYJ and the Raiders have lacked a defense this year. Watch for Jonathan Dwyer to have a break out game...Pittsburgh should win 27-10

Houston @ Denver: Peytons third game with the Broncos and a home game at that..but Houston is a tough one and probably top of the class in the AFC...Houston will squeak out of Denver 20-17

SUNDAY NIGHT:
New England @ Baltimore: Both teams come in off heart breaking losses last week and both are looking to rebound on Sunday night. However, New England seems to always have Baltimores number one way or another and rarely loses two games in a row...New England wins 28-21

MONDAY NIGHT
Green Bay @ Seattle: This game is on Monday Night...seems like an odd matchup that should favor the Packers. Seattle did beat Dallas..but Dallas is  not Green Bay: Packers win 31-13

Random Card Of The Day: JImmer Fredette Hoops 2012-2013 Auto

Hoops basketball 2012-2013 was a great product and this was pulled from our break of it. Hoops boxes contain 2 autographs and can be found at most places for around $60. With a double rookie class, this is a great product to take a chance on!

Hopefully Jimmer will play this year like he used to in college.

Review: 2012 Leaf Draft Pick Football Blaster Box

Found this cheap on the shelves at Walmart cause normally we wouldn't bust this kind of product since it doesn't really have a license...but for under $12 this is what we found.

 
Packaging: Wrapper and box are kinda dull..the draw in here was the 2 autos per box written on the front in bold letters.


Base Cards: At least team colors were used and the angles of the pics makes it appear the team logos are in place as well though they are not. The base cards were actually done well.

Insert: One of these Andrew Luck inserts can be found one per blaster.

Autographs: 2 per box. Wasn't really anyone great we pulled but they still looked nice.

Overall: Not a bad looking product and can't go wrong taking a chance for the price..you never know when RG3 could show up. As it goes for base cards, you don't get a set but you get a ton of doubles.

Ratings:  Bloggers Note: Our ratings are based specifically on the blaster, box or packs we opened and do not express what the overall product could bring. Ratings based on a 1-5. 1 Being the lowest and 5 being the highest.
                Packaging: 1
                Base Design: 3
                Insert Design: 3
                Memorablila/Autographs: 4
                Blaster, Hobby Box, or Pack Value: 4

POD: More info on the Player Of The Day contest

We noticed that only no entries have gone into the Sport Card Collectors Player Of The Day Contest which is the contest that runs daily. You can find this contest here: http://sportcardcollectors.blogspot.com/2012/09/sport-card-collectors-nfl-player-of-day_18.html

We did get an entry, but it was posted in the wrong place but we are going to count the entry still. They found a link of the person and posted a link of the contest. The only problem was that wasn't the contest card, that was the example. But like we said, because of the effort...the points will still count. So the person will get three points and have a solo lead right now for the lot of 3 auto/jersey cards plus bonus cards and we could up the anti for this one and give away more with more participation. Make sure to check off to the right of the blog to see the point standings for this promo!

Here is the explanation on how to get points. You can earn at least one point for commenting on the day. But in order to get more points, you have to read below on how to gain those!

Here is how the point system will go. You will send us a pic or a link to photobucket at sportcardcollectors@hotmail.com,  or another place you have the card stored as a pic. You get one post per day. And can only score from one of the categories. We will put an example below of what that means. You can gain points for not even having a card of the player and just commenting but more points for having a card of the player! We will post all pics of cards emailed to us the following day.

1 point For commenting.

2 points for if you don't have a Panini card of the featured player but can link us in comments to either an ebay listing, a Panini Posting from their blog or a pic you have seen elsewhere.

3 points: for having a base card or base insert of the player.

5 points for having a jersey, autograph, jersey/autograph or numbered card of the player.

Bonus Points:You can earn bonus points. 1 point for posting a link of this contest somewhere, 2 points for getting a friend or family member or card collector or the grouchy old lady that lives in your apartment building,  (make sure they mention your name in comments) to join and 5 points for posting a link of this contest somewhere and getting a friend to join! Make sure you post the link of where you posted this contest in comments along with your daily entry. There is no limit on how many links you post daily (you will get 1 point per link) and how many friends you get to play (you could earn either 2 or 5 points depending on if you do a link as well).

By scoring in only one of the categories we mean if you don't have a card of the player, don't have time to find a link and only put a comment you get one point for the day. If you don't have a Panini card of the player but link us to a listing or a pic of one, we give you two points for the day.  If you have a card of the player, once you email us a pic or a link to the card you will get either 3 or 5 points for the card depending on which category it falls under. You don't get one point for commenting plus falling under a category. You fall only under one category.

We hope to see more entries by morning...if not...thats fine. It will only be a three point lead and a new player of the day will be posted tomorrow as this one closes tonight. Who knows who tomorrows player will be....and will you have the player and dominate in points???

SPORT CARD COLLECTORS PANINI NFL PLAYER OF THE DAY PROMO PART 1!

Welcome!! If you are reading this...that means you are about to enter Sport Card Collectors Panini Player Of The Day Promo!

First off, I will tell you the purpose of the Panini promotion which is to help get collectors into their local card shops. If you’d like to find our more about how the Panini promotion works, follow this link to the POD site and the rules from Panini are there. To find out if your LCS (Local Card Shop) or another nearby LCS in  your area is participating or not...we will link you there as well: http://www.paninipod.com/2012-NFLPOD/NFLPOD-Shop-Locator.aspx just type in your states abbreviation and like magic all of the participating stores will pop up!

Panini is always doing a great job with their promos and are always looking our for LCS' and their fans.

Now that we have given you info on the most important part about the promo,  now onto our MAIN PROMO! Sport Card Collectors will run weekly contests (we are not quite sure when it will end but aiming for second week of November at this point but we will keep you updated) giving out some great prizes along the way such as Panini Player of the Day card sets, T-Shirts, Panini cards and so on. All of the contests we run will be Panini, NFL Player and NFL focused so get your thinking caps on!

We are hoping for a lot of people to participate in this promo. Along with what Panini sends us as prizes to giveaway, we are also making sure that EVERYONE who enters these contests EVERY week will win something as well so we are throwing in some prizes. The more people we get to participate...maybe the sweeter the pot will be! So make sure you invite friends, family, neighbors, other collectors you know, the creepy guy across the street, and so on!

Not everyone watches or follows or knows football that well. Thats why we are giving everyone a chance to win something and as you read on you will also see that everyone will have a shot at the big prizes as well! In order to be guaranteed to win something its very easy as long as you follow these simple rules:
  • You have to participate in EVERY weekly contest
  • You should click the Player Of The Day Ad Banner to find our more info! :)
  • At the end of the promotion, we would like for you to leave a comment under a post we will have up (we will direct you to it on here if you can't find it) and tell us how we did with the promotion, what you liked and didn't like and your thoughts overall on the Panini POD promo in both hobby shops and on this blog!
  • You must tell us how much you love us and Panini daily (not really required..but wouldn't hurt to tell us)
  • And the Contests are open to U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY! (sorry)
What you can win if you didn't win one of the weekly contests, whether its a insert card, rookie card, jersey or autograph card...all of that will be done at random in unmarked (except the words POD on them since we pre pack all of our prizes and didn't want them mixed up) envelopes. We will grab one and mail it. Its a thank you from us for participating and we want to make sure that all participants who enter all of the contests, and follow the above mentioned rules, and don't win a weekly contest will win something. So everyone wins!!! ONLY at Sport Card Collectors!! So make sure you play! This part of the promo is only for part 1 of the Sport Card Collectors Panini NFL Player Of The Day contest. The daily one is a bonus promo we are doing!

And now onto another surprise...to follow a Panini theme...we are randomly sticking 5 GOLDEN TICKETS of these:

 CONGRATS!! YOU HAVE LOCATED A SPORT CARD COLLECTORS GOLDEN TICKET!!
Look for these randomly snuck into your prize envelopes and packages :) 



randomly into envelopes and prize packages (3 will be randomly put into envelopes for the people who didn't win a weekly prize and 2 will be randomly put into the weekly prize packs). Whether its a weekly prize win or an end of the promo prize such as we talked about above with everyone winning, everyone will have a chance to possibly land one of these GOLDEN TICKETS. To make it even more fun, we are going to have a friend of ours randomly stick the GOLDEN TICKETS into the prizes and seal them...so we have no idea which ones have them in..so good luck is in order for all and we can't wait to see who lands what!

Panini uses GOLDEN TICKETS in their Contenders Football Products in exchange for cards made of 14-karat solid-gold (now we won't have those to giveaway but nice prizes still) and we are using it in our promo. Each ticket looks as follows in the picture above. The only difference is that each ticket inserted into the prize envelopes and weekly prizes will have a code number attached to it corresponding to a bigger prize such as a box of Panini cards, autograph items and more! If you are lucky enough to land a GOLDEN TICKET, email us the code on the ticket to sportcardcollectors@hotmail.com and once all GOLDEN TICKETS have been located...we will announce what prize goes with each code! The code DOES NOT go in order of the prizes listed below. The prizes were randomly selected a number to go with. We will also announce who recieved a GOLDEN TICKET at the end of the promotion and who won what!

Here is the list of the big prizes:

Random Card Of The Day: Greg Mcelroy Plates and Patches Rookie Auto /49

Could this guy be put on the field soon? Or will Mark Sanchez get things figured out? Or will the Tebow train be given another ride...either way...this is still one great Panini card and one of my favorite products in Plates And Patches.

Review: Spx Football 2012

It has been awhile since we here at Sport Card Collectors have busted a box of Upper Deck product..so here we go.

We didn't know how this product would turn out since it was done College style when it used to be an NFL product but we were pleasantly surprised and Upper Deck did a great job with it.

Now onto our full review:

 
 Packaging: Kinda of a dull design. Not eye catchy to most.


Base Cards: The design isn't bad. Reminds me of the Icons Football from '99 which I enjoyed. But the downside is some of the photography used was a little blurry. And its not just my pictures :)


Rookie Cards: I like how they made it different than the base. I like when rookie cards stand out on the product and all of the rookies are numbered. And it stays true to the Spx product and how its always been.


Inserts: Inserts in this product were not plentiful. But the ones we got really are eye catching. The acetate Slot cards are spectacular. Gotta appreciate good cards printed on plastic. The inserts below the acetate are rookie inserts that bring us back to Spx of the late 90's. They are Rookie Finites which the Weedon is the /50 parallel called Radiance.

Memorabilia: Upper Deck does a great job with their memorabilia cards. Well designed and layout.



 

Autographs: Looks like Upper Deck spent a lot of time with using Spx as a rookie laden product. We didn't hit it big with any of our rookie autos, but Quinton Coples could turn out well from what he showed us in the preseason anyways. With one autograph jersey per box that also helps make this product very attractive.

Overall: A good looking product. I don't feel we got a great value from it since all of our hits were not great. But you can hit it big with this product if you pull the right players and we have seen breaks where that has happened.

Ratings:  Bloggers Note: Our ratings are based specifically on the blaster, box or packs we opened and do not express what the overall product could bring. Ratings based on a 1-5. 1 Being the lowest and 5 being the highest.
                Packaging: 1
                Base Design: 3
                Insert Design: 5
                Memorablila/Autographs: 4
                Blaster, Hobby Box, or Pack Value: 4

Random Card Of The Day: Andre Brown Topps Platinum Football Rookie Auto

This guy came up big yesterday for the Giants stepping in for Ahmad Bradshaw after he got injured. Brown rushed for 71 yards on 13 carries and scored a late TD. Could he be a star in the making...time can only tell

Recent Findings: For our Comic Book fans!

Last week, we were given 2 boxes of random cards from a relative. The boxes contained opened and unopened cards mostly non-sport from a variety of years. We thought we would break down our findings and share them with our fans!!





 Here is what some of the cards would look like if opened:

Young Blood  

Some decent findings. More of a Batman myself, but the Ghost Rider and Marvel cards were nice finds and adds more to our non-sport side of collecting.
