Contests & Giveaways

There's lots of contests going on right now around the cardosphere. Enter a few and win you some schtuff!

Wax Heaven & Upper Deck Promotion

Mario at Wax Heaven has his first Upper Deck box break and contest tonight. Check out a couple of pack rips of Upper Deck Ballpark:

and then enter a drawing on the Upper Deck forums to win a card from the rip. Try not to win that Chipper Jones out from under me please...

Skeeeery Cards for Thorzul

Thorzul has a Halloween contest going on right now, just create the scariest trading card possible and send it his way. Winner gets a game-used jersey card of a player who has won two World Series rings since 1990. Not Chipper, so you can go ahead and win that one... IF YOU DARE!!!

Bad Wax House of Cards

Here's another nifty art project to make some good use of all those junky '80s and '90s doubles you have... Bad Wax is holding a contest for the best house of cards made with real baseball cards. If you have a pile of '90 Fleer and a steady hand, give it a shot!

Pick the NL Cy

The Nennth Inning (one of the more clever blog titles I've seen) is holding a contest where you can pick the 2008 NL Cy Young winner. You can even pick someone other than Tim Lincecum if you want (although I wouldn't recommend it).

Trick or Treat!

Tribe Cards has a big plastic pumpkin full of goodies, all you have to do is knock on his door and say Trick or Treat! You don't ahve to be dressed up, but my Halloween costume is this. Of course I usually look like that, but that's not important.

If your blog is having a contest not listed here, post a comment and I'll add it to the list. I've got another set of Turn Back the Clock retro cards to give away, so look for a contest here at Casa de Junk sometime next week!

Hey, dayf. I've got a quasi-semi-sorta-kinda contest going on at TNB. It's a little out of the ordinary and not a Halloween themed contest but still a pretty cool idea.


Which reminds me. You mentioned in the comments that you have some 1887 non-Baseball stuff. I'm interested but not for the trade. I love old historical items! Send me an email if you get a chance.

Thanks, dude!

I'm running a contest at '30-year Old Carboard'. All you have to do is predict the 8 individual award winners for the NL and AL. The winner gets there choice of an autographed baseball card from my collection!!
