My Winning Package from Beckett (part 2)

As you are well aware, Beckett offers contests every Friday in which they give away a ton of collectibles every week. As much as people say they dislike Beckett, there certainly is no shortage of people casting their entries for the cards, no matter the prize. My feelings about Beckett are a little different that most of the prominent bloggers: I don’t hate Beckett (or the employees), and to some degree I find the magazine still useful, albeit not on the level it was a decade or so ago. But that is beside the point.

Two weeks ago I actually one of the Free Stuff Friday contests and the package arrived early this week; it contained a 08-09 Hot Prospects auto 3-color patch /399 of Marreese Speights, and a 09-10 SP Game-Used dual patch card /99 of Ben Wallace and Brian Cardinal. The Wallace is a single color patch, while the Cardinal is a 3-color, worn during his days with the Grizzlies. Anyhow, I am not a basketball collector so I am looking to turn these for the best baseball offer. Interested? Leave an offer in the comments section below.

Big thanks again to Beckett for the items. Keep the contests coming, the collectors love them.

  1. I have entered a single Beckett contest. Every time I look they’re giving away basketball or NASCAR or something I don’t give a crap about.

  2. But it never hurts to enter these contests. Free cards are free cards. If you don’t like them, trade em — they’re trading cards. šŸ™‚

  3. Nah, I can’t do it that way. I’ve got to like what I’m trying to win. … By the way the last comment should have read: I HAVEN’T entered a single Beckett contest.

  4. To bad they weren’t Trail Blazer cards. šŸ˜€
