Panini America 2013 NFL Kickoff Contest

Welcome to one of the greatest days of 2013: NFL Kickoff Sunday.

Starting today, the rookies whose Panini America cards you’ve been chasing for months finally take the field for real, providing the first glimpses of the potential that awaits. Starting today, those superstar veterans whose Panini America cards you’ve been chasing for years will begin their quest for Super Bowl hardware once again. And starting today, we’re giving you a chance to win cards of those rookies and veterans alike. Keep reading to find out more.

To help kickoff the 2013 NFL season with a bang, we’re going to award 20 lucky winners with a box of 2013 Panini America NFL trading cards as part of this special two-part contest. All you have to do to be eligible to win is offer a few predictions for the 2013 NFL season.
