Sicklerville, NJ (Vocus) May 5, 2010
Take a moment to remember when you were a child and amazement was always looming just around the corner. Mickey Mantle, the legendary baseball star, hits another one out of the park - your mom buys you a memorabilia card to cherish. Your uncle shares his mint condition copy of a Spider-Man comic book with you - you’re hooked. Grandpa shows you his stamp and coin collection - you find yourself developing an infatuation with the history that carries on in metal and postage form. Think it’s too late to obtain the collectible item you’ve always dreamed of? No way! Head to the collectible marketplace, http://www.bidStart.com, and participate in their Really Big Giveaway – the grand prize winner will get their pick of four incredible collectibles.
bidStart, originally known as StampWants, has been making major strides in growing the comics, sports, and coins segments of their marketplace. In order to promote this expansion they have hand selected four truly amazing collectible items to give away through their website, http://www.bidStart.com. Sports fans can enter to win a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle Rookie PSA Graded Ex5 card. Comic fans have a chance at winning the Amazing Fantasy #15 CGC Graded Unrestored First Appearance of Spider-Man comic book. For coin collectors, bidStart is offering a 1907 St. Gaudens Gold Coin MS-65 PCGS Graded which was the first year of issue for St. Gaudens. Meanwhile, bidStart’s base of stamp fans can use their entries to try and win the U.S. #389 Used ‘Orangeburg Coil’ – one of the great philatelic rarities of the 20th century. Each of the four items carry an estimated value of approximately $5,000 USD. With no purchase necessary, there’s nothing to stop collectors of all levels from entering for the grand prize.
