How do u do NPN's?
wrv01
you put your name and address on a 3x5 index card (unless your in Canada then you have to do a math problem). put it in a #10 envelope and mail it to one of the addresses on that site.

No Purchase Necessary is just a way for you to possibly get something for almost nothing.

All you send is a large envelop plus a index card with your info...that gives you a chance at anything for the set - base card, insert, autograph, game used etc.

What to expect?!? Nothing really, but you can beat getting something "free" for the cost of a stamp and a little bit of time smile.gif

I use the npnsportscards.com, but you gotta remember that for Upper Deck you need to add your email address and phone number as well - that's not noted anywhere on the website. I found that out later on. But other than that, it's a great site that is well-organized and updated regularly.

The #10 envelope is the one that if you fold a sheet of paper (8x11) from top to bottom 3 times evenly it will fit in it without folding it sideways. Watch with Topps as the fine print says 1 entry per household per product. Not sure if sending to both of these would kill your entry. Topps is the only one that uses seperate addresses for retail/hobby. All the others are the same addy. I would go hobby as WRV mentioned the odds in hobby are usually better. In this case though I am thinking they might be the same with one auto in 24 packs.

Though I'm new to this, I've read about others who've sent to both retail and hobby (as long as they have different addresses) and even had success in receiving NPNs from both entries. I think from what I've found that as long as they have separate mailing addresses, you can submit to both.

As I said, I've just started doing this, and I'm really hoping for success on these. It can't be much worse than opening packs.

I've also heard in general that people have little/no success with Upper Deck NPNs? Anyone have much experience with Upper Deck NPNs?

I'll tell you 1 thing. Upper Deck rarely send out any NPN's, but when they do it is usually stuff of high quality. They will even send out tins from time to time of the real end products. I found the only way to get them is to send right when the item comes out. Hope this helps.
