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.
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.
