A few weeks ago I told Nick Badders, “I feel like I should have a contest to see who can make me the best logo for my blog.” I have decided to make this contest into a two-part blogging series entitled, “Logo Contest”, which will take place from January 15 – 22. Instead of posting a new entry on January 22, I will just update this entry and include “Part 2″ at the bottom. With the help of Nick, Sean Bigness, Quinn Imiola and Mateo Fischer, I came up with the following contest rules/guidelines:
1. Create a logo for my blog.
You MUST incorporate the words “A Piece of The Game” into the logo. Make sure to also capitalize the correct letters.
2. Send it to me via email (Paulhawk.firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name.
All logos MUST be submitted by 11:59 pm on Monday, January 21, 2013
3. On Tuesday, January 22, I will update this entry and reveal my the winner. He/she will get their choice of ONE of the following prizes. However, EVERYONE who submits a logo will also get to pick ONE prize (It must be approved by me… it’s just to make sure that you actually made a logo).
This is how prizes will be given out:
The creator of my favorite logo gets FIRST choice at a prize. The FIRST person (besides the 1st place winner) to enter a logo gets the SECOND choice at a prize. The SECOND person gets the THIRD choice, and so on… This way, everyone gets a prize!
4. Each winner will get their choice at one of the following prizes:
2005 Mike Rogers #155 Topps Certified Autograph issue 219/399:
Jeff Rowe 2007 Topps – Authentic Autograph Card:
Bill Schroeder 1985 topps #176 – Autographed:

January 22nd / Part 2
This is how the prizes will be given out:
The 1st place winner will get to pick a prize first. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th place winners get to pick their prize based on the order from when they submitted their logo.
I’ve listed the winners and which prizes they’ve chosen (Also, if you click their name, you will be able to read their blog) :

I didn’t mention it in the first part of this entry, but There is a chance for ONE of the contestants to win a SECOND prize. I want you, the readers, to vote for your favorite logo. Voting ends at 12:59 on Monday January 28th. Whoever gets the most votes gets to pick a second prize. This entry will be updated on Tuesday, January 29th, and you will be able to see who wins another prize.
