Box Busters: 2010 TRISTAR Hidden Treasures World Stars by Chris Olds

Update: Deadline extended to JULY 1.

If you follow Beckett Baseball‘s Chris Olds on Twitter, you got a sneak peak at one of these baseballs earlier this week, but we’re here with a very different episode of Box Busters with Olds, Tracy Hackler and Brian Fleischer that also doubles as a unique contest for our readers.

The 2010 World Stars edition of TRISTAR Hidden Treasures includes a baseball in every box and autographs from Japanese baseball greats like Ichiro Suzuki and Hideki Matsui. But what makes the product really unique?

Thirty Japanese artists and manga-ka stars have created works of art also to be found in the product, one being the TokyoGuns-created Frankenstein-style baseball seen here.

We want to see what kind of artistic skills you have — and we’re going to award the three baseballs found in the boxes above — one being a Motoki Yoshihara artball (they’ve sold for as much as $1,000 apiece) — to winners.

What do you need to do? Watch the video above for the inspiration and decorate a baseball in any way you want and send it to us at the address below by July 1.
