Football Contest: Some Prizes and Schedule

It's hard to believe that we're at the Super Bowl (and Loser Bowl) already. 

Let's take a look at what I have in store for the next five weekends:

First Quarter
2011 Prestige Blaster (80 cards)
2011 Rookies & Stars Blaster (80 cards)
2010 Playoff Contenders Blaster (25 cards, 1 Auto)
Second Quarter
1999 Upper Deck Victory Hobby Box (432 cards)
Halftime Show
2011 Timeless Treasures Hobby Tin (5 cards, 3 hits)
Third Quarter
2012 Topps Magic Hobby Box (192 cards, 3 autos)
Fourth Quarter
2013 Topps Archives Hobby Box (192 cards, 2 autos)

Oh, this is going to be fun. That's just over 1,000 cards total, giving us more than 3,000 cards on the season.

The Rams and Broncos will be looking to land as many cards as possible, while the Bears and Raiders will be hoping to fire blanks.

Here are a couple of the prizes.  For the winner of the Super Bowl, you will get 2012 Topps Rookie Cards of the three breakout QB stars:

You will also get a box of 1999 Upper Deck Victory, just like the one that will be busted for the second quarter. 

While this box doesn't contain any hits, it is a very fun break.  There are a number of great photos, and a lot of great players.  There are also some notable RCs (which are somewhat short-printed) such as Ricky Williams, Donovan McNabb, Torry Holt, Edgerrin James, Champ Bailey, Daunte Culpepper, and Jevon Kearse  In addition to those two items, I will also likely include a number of other things.

For the winner loser winner loser... team who scores the least points in the Loser Bowl, you will receive, among other things, this fantastic 110-card set of CFL cards featuring Raghib "Rocket" Ismail, because you should probably stick to Canadian football.

As for this weekend's schedule,

Friday, August 2 - 5:01 PM ET - Super Bowl Preview
Saturday, August 3 - 5:01 PM ET - Loser Bowl Quarter 1
Sunday, August 4 - 5:01 PM ET - Super Bowl Quarter 1

Good luck to the Rams, Broncos, Raiders, and Bears!
