Most companies have their NPN Info on their packs or boxes. They can also be obtained through their webcites and such. NPN's can yield anything from a nice base card, insert, gu, auto or even a sick 1/5 patch auto........fun times....

Joe, you can get NPN's a couple different ways...

with Topps you will find an address on their product wrappers, you mail in a 3x5 card to that address and hope for the best... each product wrapper has a different PO box, and it has been my experience you do well with the low end products and occassionaly score with a high ender... I have had more luck with Topps on NPN's than any other company still in business...

with Upper Deck you can only enter their NPN program through their website... I have had no luck with them at all, hope you do better than me... laugh.gif

I am unfamiliar with Panini, hope someone else can help you with their NPNs....


"Baseball players will take anything. If you had a pill that would guarantee a pitcher 20 wins but might take five years off his life, he'd take it" MLB pitcher Jim Bouton about drug use in the Major Leagues... quoted in 1969.

I vow to no longer purchase any product that features sticker autographs...
If your user name is this color I'm afraid I'll have to pass on any proposed transactions at this time.

Each 3x5 card, with your name and address has to be mailed in a separate envelope.

Panini is still doing them at the same address as Donruss in Arlington, TX. Similar to Topps you mail a 3x5 lined index card with your information in a #10 (long size approx 8.5") letter envelope. I think you can put 2 entries in for Panini products but in separate envelopes, while Topps is one entry per product.

As for getting stuff, you just have to get lucky.

Most of my current npn items have come from Topps and Panini, very little from UD since they went to the online system. Wondering if some of that could be due to UD's financial issues as well though. unsure.gif

Anyway get some stamps, write up some index cards and envelopes and hope for the best. Or log into UD's site and put your name on those as well (one entry per product or they disqualify your entries in the product).
