Update: The contest is now closed.
For this contest you need a twitter account and to Retweet the following message for a chance to win. It is actually very simple but I break it down for those new to twitter. ig4mer is my twitter account.
Retweet this message for a chance to win one or more of these baseball cards. http://bit.ly/gmgEb #sntcontest
So basically to retweet you need to copy and paste this as your tweet.
RT @ig4mer Retweet this message for a chance to win one or more of these baseball cards. http://bit.ly/gmgEb #sntcontest
Make sure your tweet has RT is front of @ig4mer, the link, and #sntcontest so I can track it. If a tweet starts with @ig4mer, it is sometimes filtered away. Finally if someone retweets your retweet of my message, you get two entries. A retweet of a retweet looks like… (gmatlinks is my business twitter account)
RT @gmatlinks @ig4mer Retweet this message for a chance to win one or more of these baseball cards. http://bit.ly/gmgEb #sntcontest
gmatlinks would get two entries, one for the retweet and one for being retweeted by someone else.
I wanted a little bit of everything as the prize pool. Here is what you can win. (My scanner is a little dirty so foiled cards look better in person.)
Autographs of young promising major leaguers, Nate McLouth & Chris Davis.
Jersey cards of superstars, Derek Jeter and Albert Pujols. The Jeter has a pinstripe and the Pujols card is from the Upper Deck First Edition factory set. (Yes, I opened the factory set.)
Finally a graded card of a top prospect, Matt LaPorta.
If there are 15 or less retweets, the winner can pick one of these cards as the prize.
If there are 25 or more retweets, the winner can pick two of these cards as the prize.
If there are 50 or more retweets, the winner can pick three of these cards as the prize and there would be a second place winner who gets the rest of the cards.
Finally if #sntcontest becomes a trending topic at any time I will add an autographed autobiography of Josh Hamilton which I got at Borders. Please take a snapshot of the twitter page if #sntcontest is a trending topic as proof.
So the idea is the more viral the tweet gets the better the prize. I will pick a winner June 14. I hope this is clear. Leave a message if anything is not clear.
