UPDATE: The contest winners have been announced. Thanks to the 1,488 people who entered!
I told you we had a huge giveaway coming this week, and you’re about to see that I wasn’t lying! In celebration of the release of NBA 2K12 for the Xbox, PS3 and Wii, we’ll be giving three lucky winners a copy of the game for the platform of their choice (Average Retail Value (ARV) of each: $60). AND each of those three winners is also going to be the proud new owner of one of the following spectacular pieces of NBA memorabilia:
- A Michael Jordan jersey (ARV: $300),
- A basketball signed by Magic Johnson (ARV: $300), with a Lakers t-shirt thrown in (ARV: $50), or
- A basketball signed by Larry Bird (ARV: $300), with a Celtics t-shirt thrown in (ARV: $50)
Pictures of the spectacular memorabilia items and the basic rules* are below, as is a link to the full Official Rules, which you must follow very, very carefully in order for your entry to be eligible. You’ll see the fun part of entering involves sharing your favorite basketball memory of all time!
We’re going to be keeping this contest open for a full week, and will pick three winners at random next Friday, October 14 after 3 PM ET.
Here’s the Michael Jordan jersey:
