For the third year in a row, Donruss will handout more than 120,000 free promotional packs of exclusive football cards at NFL Thanksgiving Day games. This year’s giveaways will take place in Dallas and Philadelphia.
“Thanksgiving is a day when families are together and watching football,” said Donruss VP Mike Anderson. “This is a great day for us to reach these families and introduce them to the fun of collecting trading cards.”
As has been the case each of the previous two seasons, the packs in Dallas will include a special card promoting the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle fundraiser which kicks off during halftime at the game. The card pictures Dallas running back Marion Barber sporting a red Salvation Army apron while serving food to the needy. Other players featured in the Cowboys set include Tony Romo, Terrell Owens, Felix Jones, and Hall of Fame defensive end Randy White.
The Philadelphia set includes Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook, Brian Dawkins, former Eagle Randal Cunningham and an Eagles Kids Club card. The pack will also include an information card on Pop Warner. Donruss is the exclusive trading card company of Pop Warner.
Both the Cowboys and Eagles packs will also contain a card featuring NFL Network personalities Rich Eisen, Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Rod Woodson, Terrell Davis, Marshall Faulk and Steve Mariucci. Each card will feature the full NFL Network schedule of games on the flip side.
