The Packs to the People/ Sportscard Forum Official Video Contest!
Posted on behalf of Samuwry7, creator of Packs To The People!
Packs to the People is excited to announce, my fellow and excellent SCF'ers, this contest opportunity to win radical prizes, like Upper Deck boxes, Upper Deck Authenticated Autographs, and other cards!
Packs to the People, like this contest, is all about two things:
1) Creating and sharing creative, new hobby video content, AND...
2) Getting as many new people into the hobby as we can, by showing them how interesting and innovative card collectibles have become.
To get an idea of what you need to do to win a piece of our prize bonanza, first watch our latest and greatest episode of Packs to the People, where we take packs to some hardcore bikers, while trying to avoid getting stabbed.
(And please, take a moment to share and like our video. We need your support to continue Upper Deck's sponsorship of our series, so we can continue to make videos, do giveaways and spread hobby love o'er the land.)
Now The Contest: Sports Card Forum...Take Packs to the People!
Your contest mission is to take Packs to the People, and add something we haven't thought of yet. Some new creative spin. Maybe you share a pack with a stranger in German, with a silly wooden hat on. Maybe you propose marriage to a beautiful stranger, offering her a pack in holy matrimony. We'd like to see you take our web series ideas, and take them a step further. And, in the process, you'll be exposing new people to the hobby, going on a weird and unique contest adventure, and perhaps winning some awesome Upper Deck boodle.
Some of you might cry out, "But unfair man, I cannot make videos like this! I only have a cellular telephone camera! I do not dabble in video edit dorkery!" Well, hey, that's all you need.
TO ENTER, all you have to do is:
1) Make a video of yourself sharing ONE pack of Upper Deck card product with a non-collector.
2) Make it interesting! Introduce your breaker, tell us where you are, what product you're breaking, details like that. Ask about their experience opening packs, and how they felt about opening the one you gave them.
3) Make it creative! Interesting people, locations, concepts, video ideas, costumes...heck, we can't think of everything. Show us something Packs to the People hasn't done before.
All contest entries must be posted in this thread no later than 11:59 PM (Pacific) on or before September 30. The PTTP team will narrow the entries to six finalists, and Sports Card Forum members will vote on who rocked the best Packs to the People video.
4) At the end of your video, make sure your breaker says "PACKS TO THE PEOPLE, AND SPORTSCARD FORUM!"
At this point, your posterior cingulate cortex (which is the part of the brain that controls motivation) is probably asking, "WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME, OP?" Very glad you asked.
Some of the prizes are pictured here. With a psycho.
GRAND PRIZE: A box of 2013 Fleer Retro Football AND a box of 2014 Goodwin Champions!
SECOND PRIZE: A box of 2013 Fleer Retro Football
THIRD PRIZE: Your choice of Melvin Ingram or Keenan Allen Upper Deck Authenticated 5x7" autographed blow up cards, with COA
FOURTH PRIZE: The remaining autographed blow up card
FIFTH PRIZE: Nichushkin and Yakupov Young Guns Rookie Cards
SIXTH PRIZE: A prize pack of Fleer Retro inserts, rookies and auto
And make sure you follow us on Twitter @Packs2daPeople. We give away things often on Twitter.
ALL CONTESTANTS PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
Packs to the People is a positive experience that in no way condones the use of scare tactics or harassment. People should always be approached in appropriate public areas, safely and responsibly. Private areas, such as bathrooms, should be avoided. Always show politeness and respect to all potential breakers in these PTTP contest endeavors. Some people are simply very uncomfortable being filmed. Negative entries of any kind will not be considered for prizes.
