Sports Challenge Contest Week 2 Game Picks

Week 1 is in the books and things are looking tight! But, still three weeks to go and new challengers are encouraged to join in. Even if you had a bad weekend, don't give up, there is a long way to go and the last week I promise will be a doozy. Anyone can win. That's the fun of this. It's happened many times before in the past and every week there should be a shot at landing some bonus points!

Here are the current standings if you haven't checked them out yet, Standings For BCW Lot

And here is the second round of weekends games towards my Sports Challenge Contest.

In comments, just pick the winners. Please take a second out to put Sat for Saturday games and Sun for Sunday games as I listed them here.

You will earn 1 point for each game right. You will earn 0 points for games wrong. Points hopefully will be updated on the Monday after the weekend. If not, they should be before the next round of games. There will also be ways to earn bonus points and lose points along the way so watch for those days.

Most of all, have fun and good luck!

Time for the small print before you comment below.
  1. ***VERY IMPORTANT***MUST BE A U.S. RESIDENT to enter or have a shipping address in the U.S. Shipping costs have gone haywire and I can't afford to ship everywhere.This is always hard to do as I appreciate all readers but I hope you all understand non-U.S. readers.
  2. Top three point scorers will win a prize
  3. Entrants must pick winners for the list of games given. They will mostly be baseball at this point but other sports may be included. There will be special days to earn bonus points or lose them. The last day of the contest, contestants will be asked to gamble their points away to try and out-win others in an ALL OUT BATTLE! In case of a tie for the top three spots, one extra day to earn points will be added just for those in the running. I have seen people win in the past with minimal points before, so make sure you use your points reasonably on the final day.
  4. CardS may be shipped PWE. I like to forewarn on this.
  5. Sport Card Collectors or it's owner (person who runs the blog), WILL NOT be held responsible for lost, stolen or damaged mail. Sorry had to add this in since someone tried to scam me once about this.
  6. Make sure to thank, BCW Supplies, Topps, Panini, Cryptozoic and Sport Card Collectors for their generosity.

  9. What if you don't have a sports card blog then you pretty much lose? They get 4 extra points than the ppl that just can retweet on Twitter?

    1. The reach for some to get the word out on the blog can be better through a sports card blog. I am trying for as many participants as I can get. It's more fun that way.

      Some of the bloggers that have entered don't even grab the extra points. Also looking at the leader board it's a very good mix of bloggers and non bloggers. It's the final two weeks of this contest that really decides who wins. Especially the finale.

  22. Just to clarify to everyone, you could only earn up to 6 bonus points. I see some did tweets and blog posts which is fine but you can only choose the blog or twitter. I chose the blog ones for those that did blog and gave you 2 points each for them and ruled out your tweets as I would guess you would choose 2 points over 1.

    It was also stated in rules above to:
    "MUST comment with the link below to the tweet or blog post"

    I just wanted to make sure there is no arguing over points this way if I clarify now.

    Secondly, Thomas Young, I don't like to be the bearer of bad news, but you were a day late on your picks and tweets as the contest closes every Friday so I can't count your picks this week. I would not want to cause trouble from other contestants on that.

    As for the rest, I updated the points from Saturday today along with any bonus points you may have earned. You are never out of this contest.

    Next week, there are no more bonus points up for grabs. Now you will have to start spending some of those points you earn to try and outdo/outsmart the others.

    If you entered week 1 but missed week 2, go ahead and enter week 3. It's also the last week for newbies in week 3. If you have earned any points in this contest, you MUST enter Week 4 to qualify for the prizes. Or you will be automatically eliminated.

    Also, those who just started or have low point totals, the next two weeks are what really matters. Try your best to outsmart others and even those with 4 points can still win this with the right strategies in place.

    So come back Monday to enter next weeks picks. It should be up on the blog by 3 pm e.t.
