I find myself in position to acquire what might be the holiest card I'd ever own: an actual autograph of the great Sandy Koufax. I'm one of three finalists in a contest over at Beckett for a redemption for a Sandy Signature from 2012 Topps Tier One. The contest runs until the end of August the 7th, and you can vote from different browsers and vote each and every day of said month. Any of your votes would be much, much appreciated, and if you could pass along the link and convince your friends, family, co-workers, and random people to vote for me, I would be eternally grateful. There's already an up-start Twitter Campaign: #VoteForZakwin. No, I didn't come up with it; that honor goes to SportsCardBlog.net. I think it's a fun way to promote the contest and get out the vote (for me).
To spread the word, I've decided to hold a contest of my own to entice you wonderful people to pimp for me and vote for me. The prize is TBD but I've pulled a few cool cards and set them aside, and I'll surely send the winner something that fits into his or her collection somehow.
Here's how it shall work: 1 entry if you vote for me, 2 entries if you vote for me and pimp the contest, and a third entry if you pimp it on any non-Blogger entity (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Please provide me links of said pimping when it has been pimped, and simply leave a comment letting me know that you voted as well. As you might imagine, I'm going all out on this one. Whether the vote proves successful for me or not, someone will walk away with a nice prize as a token of my appreciation for people supporting me in this month-long journey. Who knows, it could be multiple winners depending upon the results and the amount of pimpage.
A few people have already been kind enough to pimp my quest, and unknowingly earned entries into this spur-of-the-moment contest. Eric (also on Twitter), Benny, Joe, Matt P., Justin (also on Facebook), Ernest, and Richard (also on Facebook): many thanks gents!
Please vote and spread the word, and if you can, continue to click that button for me throughout the next month until the 7th, which is fittingly the 40th Anniversary of Sandy's Hall of Fame induction. I'll be posting reminders both here and on Twitter, so any help would be much appreciated!
And finally, Drew from drewscards is holding a contest to commemorate his 1000th post. Check it out here and get in on the fun!
