Introducing the Beckett Bonus

You may have seen them on a few sports card boxes lately, but you’ll likely see more of these QR codes¬†elsewhere in the hobby, too.

Starting with our next round of magazines arriving in October, we’ll include a little something extra — it could be a link to something you can’t watch in a magazine but you can find right here on

Or, it might be a direct link to a hot player’s Online Price Guide in the database to go along with a story in the magazine.

Or it might be a little something that, well, you just can’t find anywhere else.

We’re calling it the Beckett Bonus.

We’ll only do one (ok, maybe two) in an issue but we hope that they will bring a few of our print-loving peeps who are out there over here, too.

Maybe, if we’re feeling frisky, a code will include a little something else that’s special — and we’ll start them in October, which is slated to be Customer Appreciation Month on with prizes awarded daily.

Try this one if you have your code-reader handy … it’ s just a teaser of sorts for who’ll be appearing on the cover of the November issue of Beckett Baseball.

    QR codes are a flop and never caught on. You guys are jumping on a dead horse…

    I hear what you’re saying Brad, but I think it’s in capacity, it might be able to work.

    I’m big fan of at least trying things and seeing how it pans out. If it doesn’t work, well at least we tried. If it works well with our readers, that’s great!

    Roger: Not really. And if you have a smartphone most QR apps are free, anyway.

    i wouldn’t say QR codes are dead. You can find them on bus-stops, business cards, and now Beckett who is ripping off Sports Illustrated who has used QR codes for years to link to online content as well as have advertisers in SI who use them to point you to their website for more information, etc.

    there are lots of free QR code reader apps for your smartphone or internet appliance like an ipod touch 4G.
