Sucess ratio depends on the company:

Topps only allows 1 per household. Probably get something 1 in 3 times I send roughly 33%. Sometimes you do better sometimes worse.
UD allows unlimited entries, but it is hit or miss. I would guess 25-50% return ratio. I have sent 4 in on the ones that I have received something on and only received 1 winner.
Donruss, Playoff, Leaf allow 2 entries per household on most but again hit or miss. I would guess 25-40% return ratio.

Current list, I am not sure if one has been updated here. What sport do you collect and I can list a few current ones that I am aware of. The problem is that the expiration dates are on the packs and once I have sent for them I do not look at the packs again.

Best NPN card - Well there have been a few for me, my best this year would be the Reflections football Heath Miller auto #/100 I received a few weeks back. I received a Jimmy Smith auto a few years back from Topps. Check out my other threads and you will see some of the other good and bad I have received recently. When the program first started, I received some nice GU cards. Recently I have not received to much in GU cards. Just so you know the worst is not getting an envelope and second worst was the Bazooka football black eye liner I received this year.

Here are a few current football ones:

NPN
2005 Leaf Rookies & Stars Football
2300 E. Randol Mill
Arlington TX 76011-6333

Limit 2 entries mailed on seperate days, send 3X5 card with handprinted name & addy, in #10 envelope to addy above.

NPN Manager
SP Authentic Football Trading Card Request or Sweet Spot Football Trading Card Request
5909 Sea Otter Place
Carlsbad, CA 92010

Unlimited entries mailed on seperate days (1 per day), send 3X5 card with handprinted name, email addy, address, and day/evening phone numbers and mail in a #10 envelope to addresses above.

Please not that NPN offers are not allowed for PO box addresses.

There are probably others for Topps, like Finest Football, Bowman football, Heritage football, but I do not have those handy. If you want them let me know and I can see if I can find them. The problem with Topps is they use different addresses (PO boxes) for theirs.

I should add IMO it is better to do the Topps high end products if you can like Pristine, Retired Sigs. I seem to do better on those.

Thanks NIH,

I like football, but if it only cost an envelop and stamp -- baseball, basketball, wrestling, hockey, entertainment - you name it - I'll try!

Yes it only costs an envelope, stamp, 3X5 card and your time. But it adds up fast with the price of postage and time involved. On Baseball basketball and entertainment, I do not do much there. On hockey, change the second line on Upper Deck and insert 05/06 Black Diamond Hockey Trading Card Request, or 05/06 Trilogy Hockey Trading Card Request, or 05/06 UD Series 1 Hockey Trading Card Request, or 05/06 MVP Hockey Trading Card Request or 05/06 Artifacts Hockey Trading card request (I think Baseball of this came out recently not sure). That is about all I have on hockey that is more current.
