Default Beckett Covers cards return at National Sports Collectors Convention

Beckett Covers cards return at National Sports Collectors Convention

07.17




By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
We’ve got it covered … again.
The Beckett Covers trading card concept — a promotional program that debuted earlier this year with free promo cards featuring past Beckett covers just as they appeared on newsstands — will return at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention that starts two weeks from today in Chicago.
There will be 10 limited-edition cards to be found at various booths at the show with a bonus 11th card — one limited to just 99 copies — only available to those who present a complete Beckett Covers set at the Beckett Media booth and do a few other small things as part of an NSCC scavenger hunt.

The first wave of cards have been a bit of a hit with some collectors. The previous wave included just the covers for the first issues of Beckett Baseball, Beckett Football, Beckett Hockey and Beckett Basketball. This selection of covers is more Chicago-centric and includes the newest Beckett Sports Card Monthly cover, the NSCC Show Issue, featuring Michael Jordan.
Additional details on the scavenger hunt and the Beckett Covers cards can be found at the Beckett Media booth during the show.

sounds like you go to the stated booths on the back of the pictured cards to collect the first 10 beckett cover cards, then the first 99 people who show the complete set of 10 to Beckett get the limited edition one?

I bet it involves getting a Steve Swisher tattoo or "somebody's" beard

Maybe you have to sell cards at Beckett prices

Heres how i take it. You go to each booth listed, one by one. Either requst the Beckett Cover Card or possibly make a purchase to recieve it. After you have collected all ten, which you must hurry, the 11th and final one will be at becketts booth. Only the first 99 people who show the completed 10 card cover set, geth the 11th one. Seems simple enough, but with thousands there, that 11th card may be tricky...

Saw an ad that to get the Chris Potter Sports card requires a $5 purchase.

It looks like the COMC one is going to be tough to get. Per their blog...

•First 10 people to fund their account with $100 of Store Credit at our booth
•First 10 people to spend $100 in either The Vault or COMC at our booth
•5 of these cards will be raffled off Thursday and Friday in the Blowout Raffle and 10 on Saturday

Beckett isn't "coining" people of money the 10 places are. They prob told them here are your cards do as you wish on giving them out. This is a great opportunity for these company's to make the money since a few people will go for the set

The above only equals 40 total cards...aren't there 99 of the last card?
