The Beckett Cover Cards Scavenger Hunt is a popular activity to take part in for those lucky collectors attending the National Sports Collectors Convention. I’m happy to say that it will be returning for 2015.
This year there will be (15) cards to find. These cards can be found throughout the show from various dealers and case breakers. In order to obtain these cards you most likely have to buy something from one of the dealers. That is how it has worked in the past. The picture below shows all (15) Beckett Cover Cards and where you can find them. Just click to enlarge. As you can see, Cubs rookie phenom Kris Bryant is featured on five of them. All cards will be serial numbered as they have been in the past. Golfer Jordan Spieth will have a cameo appearance on one of the cards. Jordan Spieth really doesn’t have any cards yet, except for the one that came from Sports Illustrated for Kids.
For those collectors that obtain all (15) Beckett Cover Cards, you have a nice surprise coming your way. When you stop by the Beckett booth and prove that you have all (15) cards, you’ll be given a blind package containing a special autographed card. This is totally new for 2015. These signed Beckett Cover Cards include Emmitt Smith, Bo Jackson, Frank Thomas, Cal Ripken Jr., Pete Rose, Stan Musial, Mike Modano, Jose Canseco, Dennis Rodman, and Mike Tyson. Autographed cards will begin to be given out on Thursday, July 30th. Only (50) autographed cards will be given out each day.
