The Home Team Heroes 2023 Baseball Color Pop Insert Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) is administered by Blokpax LLC (“BLOKPAX”) and is open to people age 18 and older where not prohibited by law. BLOKPAX is based in the United States and the Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and BLOKPAX’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. The Sweepstakes consists of a sweepstakes contest as described in these Rules.
BLOKPAX, 1320 Main Street, Suite 300, Columbia, South Carolina, 29201, is the sponsor and sole administrator of the Sweepstakes.
Sweepstakes entry begins on March 28, 2023 at 12:00:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends when all Home Team Heroes Series 1 Digital Trading Card Packs are sold (the “Sweepstakes Entry Period”). To ensure time is allotted for mail-in entries, the mail-in entry process will close no sooner than April, 15 2023. All winners will be determined once all Home Team Heroes Series 1 Digital Trading Card Packs are opened. Timing for this Sweepstakes will be based on Eastern Time, and BLOKPAX’s computer is the official time-keeping device.
4. How to Enter
There are two (2) possible methods of entry.
1) By Purchasing Home Team Heroes Series 1 Digital Trading Card Packs: Color Pop Hit Cards will be randomly inserted in packs. If you receive a Color Pop Insert Hit Card when opening your packs, the prize (a Color Pop Insert Redemption Card on the Ethereum blockchain) will be automatically sent to the wallet linked to your Blokpax account.
2) Via mail-in entry: Limit one mail-in entry per household. An entrant may obtain entry by printing his or her name, complete address, and the address of his or her valid ERC-1155 compliant Wallet on a 3 x 5 card, manually signing the card, and mailing the card in a #10 envelope, with all required postage, to: #2023HTH1ColorPop Entry, P.O. Box 61062, Columbia, South Carolina 29260. Only one card may be included in an envelope. Each card using this method must be mailed separately. Each entry properly submitted in this way will cause a randomization to be run to determine if the entry has won a Color Pop Insert Redemption Card using the same odds as those entries submitted via method 1 above while supplies last. If the entry is a winner, a Color Pop Insert Redemption Card on the Ethereum blockchain will be sent to the wallet included on the entry postcard. Any attempted entry using this method that does not comply completely with all requirements stated in these Rules will not be accepted into the Sweepstakes.
General Conditions Regarding Entering:
Instructions on how to link an ERC-1155 compliant Wallet to your Blokpax account are found on the Blokpax website.
Entry requires using one of the two (2) methods described above. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and may result in disqualification. BLOKPAX is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, which will be disqualified.
Potential winners may be required to provide personally-identifying information for purposes of reporting to tax or regulatory authorities. The information you provide will be used only to administer the Sweepstakes.
5. The Prizes
There are two thousand four hundred seventy five (2,475) prizes in this Sweepstakes (99 Color Pop Insert Redemption Cards for each of 25 different Home Team Heroes). These Prizes allow the winner to redeem a random Color Pop Insert Digital Trading Card for a random character in the Home Team Hero Franchise which can allow the Winner to receive crypto based “frequent flyer mile” style points that can be used to bid on various collectibles. Since these are newly created NFTs, that use a newly established “frequent flyer mile” type payout that’s redemption value is totally unknown, the value of each prize is undeterminable at outset of this promotion and may change significantly over time, including over short periods of time such as the Sweepstakes Period. An initial value estimate of $1 per prize has been established.
Without representing this information either as true current value or as an approximation thereof, BLOKPAX (at the time of preparing these Rules on March 28, 2023) the stated value of all prizes is two thousand four hundred seventy five US dollars ($2,475 USD), but recognizes and cautions that the actual value established on the secondary market may be more or less than this estimate.
6. The Odds of Winning
The odds of winning a prize are 1-in-100.
7. Winner Selection and Prize Awards
Each entry represents a chance to win a specific one of the two thousand four hundred seventy five (2,475) Color Pop Insert Redemption Card Prizes. Each entry is only eligible to win one particular prize.
The Wallet linked to a Blokpax account (or submitted via mail-in) that wins a Prize will automatically have a Color Pop Insert Redemption Card NFT deposited to that Wallet that confers upon the holder full and complete ownership and self-custody. The Winner may choose to hold their Color Pop Insert Redemption Card unrevealed or follow the provided instructions for using it to “mint” an actual Color Pop Insert Digital Trading Card for one of the available 25 Home Team Hero characters based on a blockchain randomization of all available Heroes’ corresponding Color Pop Inserts still available.
8. Notification and Verification of Winners

9. Tax Responsibility
Winners will be solely responsible for all taxes levied by any jurisdiction on the receipt, ownership, transfer, or profit from all Prizes; and the recipient will be responsible for all taxes levied by any jurisdiction thereon.
