The End Of An Era

Since 2012, Sport Card Collectors has hosted the blogger version of Panini's Player Of The Day promotion help spreading awareness of the card shop phenomenon where a customer of an LCS can open a pack of Panini NFL cards and try to"pull" the highlighted Panini NFL Player of the Day or the Wild Card to win a prize. There are also weekly winners and each shop can choose a monthly winner among those weekly ones that get a shot at the big prize of spending a day with an NFL player.
This blog not only got to help spread the word, but it got to hand out many prizes from sports figures to t-shirts to Player Of The Day packs to autographed items to even hobby boxes to readers who joined in on some fun challenging contests which also tied back in with Panini's version.

Sadly today however, it was confirmed that the blogger promo will no longer carry on which means no 5th edition of the promo on this blog or anymore going forward.

Over the years Sport Card Collectors blog was a three-time champion host and last year was the ONLY blog to participate in the promo which handed out tons of prizes (that Panini and myself provided) while having some football fun along the way.

It's definitely a bit disappointing to not host it anymore, but with all good things, they all come to an end.

I just wanted to say thank you again to those of you who participated over the years and to Scott, Doug and Panini for allowing me to host the past four.

The 2016 Panini Player Of The Day contest in your LCS' starts really soon and I encourage you to join in and wish you the best of luck on trying to win a day with your favorite player.

You can also enter contests and keep up on the latest news by following @PaniniPOD on Twitter.


  1. We appreciate the support. As an FYI to your followers, they can still win through Panini NFLPOD at their local hobby shop or follow us on Twitter @PaniniPod as we give away auto cards and other items throughout Sept-Oct-Nov.

    1. Good catch. I meant to add that in as I very much encourage those to follow and join in. Especially at their hobby shops
