Who doesn't like free stuff? If you are a rabid collector with more "jones" than money, you'll look for anyway to scrounge free stuff to "feed the need"
You know what they say about assumptions right? So if you guys already know this stuff don't shoot me.
Upper Deck NPN
Have you ever read the fine print on a wrapper? Part of the text reads, "No Purchase Necessary. For your chance to win these inserts, at the same odds. . yadda . . yadda"
Basically this is there way of getting around gambling and lottery laws.
No it's not out of the kindness of their heart.
Typically, you had to fill out a 3x5 card and mail it with a SASE.
Time consuming and not FREE.
Well Upper Deck now provides collectors the ability to utilize an online NPN system.
Both websites have a daily weepstakes for autographed photos, and mini-helmets.
I actually won a very cool Bob Feller B&W 8x10.
It takes just seconds, as you can populate the fields in the registration form via AutoFill.
