***NOW CLOSED*** FREE STUFF FRIDAY — You have 15 chances to win big right now by Chris Olds

Free Stuff Friday is back once again and we’re pulling no punches this week with a Babe Ruth game-used bat card seen below and plenty more up for grabs.

Also among the offerings is a heavy amount of NBA cards from Panini America, which is busier than usual this weekend with the NBA All-Star Game in Dallas. What did Panini offer up for Beckett readers to win this week? Plenty … and so much we’ll have plenty more next week, too.

Personally, I think you guys should try to add in a bit more hockey into Free Stuff Friday, though you’re still doing a great job.

Comment by Brendan Bevan

Maybe you guys should change the name of the contest since it’s always on Thursdays now. Maybe something like Trivia Thursdays or something.

Anyways, thank you Chris Olds, Beckett, and Panini for doing this.

From mod: Maybe we’ll keep doing contests and you’ll keep entering.

Comment by Arnold Platt

I love the contests, but I really enjoyed the old style. It built anticipation and excitement during my day at work. I know this way increases traffic, but you think we could get maybe a couple chances to play like old time.

We’ll easily have a record for FSF entries once the weekend is over… so you’re definitely not the only contender.
