Mantle Rookie, Spiderman Giveaway Draws 20,000 Entries

Want to win a Mickey Mantle rookie card?

Collectors have the chance to do that through bidStart’s Really Big Giveaway. The website is giving away one of three prizes, each valued at $5,000 including a PSA 5 1951 Bowman Mantle rookie.  The company says over 200,000 entries have been received with the drawing set for next week.

“With such unique, beautiful and historically valuable items such as an Amazing Fantasy #15, which marked the debut of Spider-Man, a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie card, and a #389 Orangeburg Coil (postage stamp), it’s no surprise we’ve had such a high level of participation in our giveaway. It also doesn’t hurt that each item is valued around $5,000,” said Mark Rosenberg, President of “But that was the plan from the beginning – to attract new collectors to our giveaway, and in turn our collectibles marketplace.”

The Really Big Giveaway is open to any eligible person who visits and creates a free account. Once a member, participants can enter once a day for their chance to win, as they have been doing over the past several months.
