Limit one (1) entry per stamped outer envelope. No metered mail. Stamped mail only. Failure to comply will result in disqualification of the non-compliant entry. You must provide all required information to be eligible to enter and win. Each compliant and successfully mailed in written request equals one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. All postcards must be post marked by the end of the Entry Period and received by Sponsor by October 25, 2023.
Limit: two (2) entries per person. Anyone found to be using multiple accounts to enter the Sweepstakes will be deemed ineligible for the Sweepstakes, and all of their entries may be deemed void.

Sponsor shall not be liable for any problems that occur during the entry process, including, without limitation, late, incomplete, illegible, delayed, undelivered, undeliverable, or misdirected entries, and Sponsor shall not have any obligation to advise an entrant of a late, incomplete, delayed, undelivered, misdirected, or invalid submission or entry. Proof of sending a postcard for the Sweepstakes will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. No illegible, incomplete, forged, or altered entries will be accepted. All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the DraftKings account used to enter will be deemed to be the proper entrant. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
- Prizes and Odds of Winning: Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and the General Rules, up to sixty (60) winners of the Sweepstakes will each receive fifteen (15) trading cards total (a “Card Prize”) (with an average approximate retail value (“ARV”) of seventy two dollars ($72), depending on the composition of cards each winner receives). For clarity, each Card Prize is a maximum of fifteen (15) cards.
Prize Restrictions: Each Sweepstakes entrant can only win at most one (1) Card Prize package of a maximum of fifteen (15) cards. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in these Official Rules, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize with an equivalent prize of equal or greater value. Any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes and all fees and expenses related to acceptance and use of a prize not specifically stated herein are the sole responsibility of the winners. Prizes cannot be substituted, assigned, transferred, or redeemed for cash by the winner; however, Sponsor reserves the right to make equivalent prize substitutions at its discretion. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prizes. Only the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules is available to be won in the Sweepstakes. In the event, by reason of a print or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in these Official Rules, prize winner(s) will be selected in accordance with the winner selection method described in these Official Rules from among all eligible claimants making purportedly valid claims in order to award the advertised number of prizes available. Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or cancellation of prize delivery due to unforeseen circumstances or circumstances outside of its control. Additional restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply.
- Selection of Winner: On or around October 26, 2023, Sponsor will randomly select the potential winners of Card Prizes from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Card Prizes will be mailed to the winner’s address associated with their DraftKings account and listed on the card submitted to Sponsor to enter the Sweepstakes.
Sponsor is not liable for or in respect of any loss or damage arising from shipping of the Card Prize, including, without limitation, any delay in shipping the Card Prize, failure of the shipping company to deliver the Card Prize, or delay in delivery of the Card Prize. The risk of loss and title for the Card Prize pass to you upon Sponsor’s delivery of the Card Prize to the shipping company, and therefore, Sponsor shall not be responsible or liable for any damage to, or total loss of, the Card Prize caused during shipping or delivery of the Card Prize.
