As promised, we here (well, me here) at Balk Four have decided to have our first ever contest.
The exact parameters of the contest will be secret for now, but I need to make sure and drum up enough interest in the contest to make it worth my while.
A few rules on the contest:
1. You MUST be a follower of the blog. With my new found commitment to the blog, I would like more people reading it, so as to encourage more interaction and feedback from the sports card blogosphere.
2. You must collect cards. Of all kinds. It can be one sport, one brand, one team or one player. But there will be a ton of randomness going on, so all prizes will not contain only one sport.
3. You gotta be active with the contest. It will span a matter of weeks and will include multiple opportunities to gain points.
4. Yes, this will be a points based contest. There will be some trivia, some games, maybe a limerick or two...and score will be kept.
5. I'm gonna need you to have fun and enjoy yourself with it. There will be a limited number of prizes given out, but EVERYONE is encouraged to participate. Who knows, maybe everyone will get something ;)
Now, as for prizes, I will give a small preview of some of the things that will be given away (this will be a sample of the baseball cards being given away):
Plus, there will be quitet he assortment of basketball, football, oddball and maybe a little hockey mixed in.
All you have to do to enter is: 1) Follow the blog. Who knows, maybe you will enjoy the content. 2) Post a comment with your name, favorite baseball team and some random baseball trivia. 3) Prepare yourself to have a little fun ;)
I will iron outall the details of the contest over the weekend and should have the first contest post up sometime in the beginning of next week. Feel free to spread the word on the contest. The more people that participate, the better the prizes will be (and, potentially, the more prizes available).
Thanks everyone, keep an eye out for more details.
