Win our autographed Kris Bryant baseball bat

Bryant

By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

TroutCover2We’re finalizing the July issue of Beckett Baseball this week — one that will examine notable past players, cards and sets for USA Baseball — but we couldn’t wait to get things started for one inclusion in the issue.

A contest where one lucky reader will get to own this USA Baseball bat signed by Chicago Cubs rookie Kris Bryant.

He’s a former USA Baseball Collegiate National Team member and he was the winner of the 2013 Golden Spikes Award, which goes to the top amateur player in the country. (Hence the “GSA ’13” inscription.) Right now, of course, Bryant is the top player in the hobby and that makes this item straight from the USA Baseball archives one that we couldn’t help but pass along to one of you.

How can it be yours?

Beckett TBT: 1996 Amalgam

$_57

 

By Matt Bible | Beckett Non-Sports and Gaming Analyst

Nearly 20 years ago, the writers and artists of both DC and Marvel came together to give comic book collectors something special: Amalgam Comics.

The basic idea was to create a series of comic books that merged two characters, one each from the  Marvel and DC universes, into one unique uber-hero or uber-villain. Therefore, heroes such as Dark Claw (Batman/Wolverine), Super Soldier (Superman/Captain America), and Spider-Boy (Spider-Man/Superboy) were born to try and stop the exploits of such villains as the Hyena (Joker/Sabretooth), Green Skull (Lex Luthor/Red Skull), and Bizarnage (Carnage/Bizarro). This was an historic collaboration that exposed collectors and readers to dream comic hybrids  that would leave them hungry for more.  Read More »

Contest: Legendary Fear Itself

By Matt Bible | Beckett Non-Sports and Gaming Analyst

The only thing we have to fear…

Upper Deck‘s newest Marvel deck-building game is an expansion of the current Legendary series, which has included titles devoted to such franchises such as Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fantastic 4. However, Fear Itself follows the Marvel story line of the same name and casts you as the villains. Lead such baddies as Kuurth, Breaker of Stone and Greithoth, Breaker of Wills, into battle against your adversaries, which includes heroes such as Iron Man, Dr. Strange, and Spider-Man. The deck includes 100 playable cards, 6 allies, 1 commander, 1 adversary group, 3 new plots and a rule sheet.

Want to win a deck? Simply leave a comment below and tell us what you think of deck-building games. Perhaps you have all of the Legendary series and would like to share your playing experiences. Or, maybe you’re new DBG and would like to know more. We will select three winners before April 1.
