UD giveaway includes cards of Kaepernick, Flacco

To coincide with the release of its 2012 SP Authentic Football today, Upper Deck is sponsoring a contest that give the winner autographed, multicolored patch cards of Super Bowl quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick and Joe Flacco.

Get the picture? Good, because Upper Deck wants a picture from collectors.

Upper Deck is asking collectors to send them images of themselves showing off their favorite SP Authentic Football cards — any year is OK. So, just take a photo of yourself holding that favorite card and send it to Upper Deck in one of three ways — by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), by posting it to Upper Deck’s Facebook page, or by tweeting the image to UD’s Twitter account (@UpperDeckSports).

Also, include two sentences — and only two sentences — telling UD why you love SP Authentic Football.

Deadline to post is Feb. 5 at 2 p.m. EST. Upper Deck then will select the fan who they believe epitomizes the love that football fans have for SP Authentic. The winner will be announced later in the day.
