August Contest Week 1

With the lack of entries from the switch of rules for the July Contest, I decided to go back to the original format for the final three months. One other change to note is Jammin JDcards will not be participating in this months contest, instead I have put some prizes in the pot. So here you go!

WELCOME! This is the first week of our August Contest. Now, compared to monthly contests in the past, this one is different. Instead of picking different winners daily, earning points, having the top three in points win prizes you only need to do this one entry where there will be one winner at the end of this week. This contest will run for three weeks and there will be a total of three winners. Once you have won for this month, you cannot win again as we want to spread the prize love around. Also, once you have won for the month, you will go into the WINNERS CIRCLE where you will not only be randomed to pick a prize for the month (all three names will be randomed and the person at the top of the list from the random picks their prize then so on), but will get a guaranteed spot in October's Monthly Contest. That is the ONLY way to be able to enter October's Contest. which has three prizes including a GRAND PRIZE from BCW Supplies.

This months prizes in the Prize Pot are:

Prizes from Sport Card Collectors:

6 Card Michael Jordan collection:

2 Autographed Rookie Cards:
And this from BCW Supplies:


Here is where you can buy bonuses of these items:

 
WINNERS CIRCLE SO FAR FOR THE MONTH:


Now onto how to be entered this week to be in the WINNERS CIRCLE for this months prizes and the WINNERS CIRCLE to be able to participate in October's Monthly Contest.

What's In The Mail Box?

Stop what you are doing! There is no time for that. You need to check out what arrived in my mail box first!!! Once you see what I got, you will not only be happy that you stopped what you were doing, but you may want to check this post as many times as you can because you won't believe I won this card for FREE in a contest. I know I can't take my eyes off from it.

Every month the people over at Beckett Auctions put up a card you can win. First it was a Michael Jordan auto. Than it was a 1/1 Wayne Gretzky auto that was soon followed up by a Kobe Bryant auto. At first, I gotta admit I was a little hesitant. I mean, who just gives away autos from top stars in the hobby. However, with last weeks announcement that I had won July's contest,  I can now say first hand that they actually do.

July's prize arrived yesterday and inside of the box labeled Beckett Media on the outside of it, I received in this graded LeBron James 2012-2013 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection autograph.It is just simply stunning to say the least.

What at first I thought as crazy, isn't anymore and this month they have a Super Bowl champion's autograph up for grabs in Russell Wilson. By now you are probably saying, ummmm let us in on how to win so we can enter. Well, that's easy. Like Beckett Auctions on Facebook and follow them on Twitter, then you can do any of the following that counts for entries:
  1. Bid on their Auctions (you should at least check out the items. I would be surprised if you couldn't find something that you want. I know I have found plenty) at http://auctions.beckett.com/catalog.aspx
  2. SHARE any of their Facebook posts 
  3. Re-tweet any of their tweets on Twitter
  4. They will also offer out other chances to gain extra entries such as bidding on an item on a certain day
All I can say to you now is good luck. This is not a joke. They are really giving some incredible prizes away and I would like to thank them again for mine. This is by far the best card in my collection.
