Play the All-Star OSCON Trading Card Game and win a limited edition baseball shirt

Test your scavenger and negotiation skills at OSCON this year! We've created 20 unique trading cards, each representing all-star open source technologies and languages. The first 500 attendees to collect all 20 cards will win an OSCON baseball shirt and will also be entered in a drawing to win additional bonus prizes.

Rules and instructions for the Trading Card Game will be included in your conference bag. You may also download the PDF Trading Card Game Rules and Instructions (3.3MB).

Contest Rules

  • You must be an OSCON 2012 attendee and have a valid badge. Expo Hall-only pass holders, media, event staff and crew, exhibitor booth staff (exhibitors), and employees of O'Reilly Media are not eligible to participate.
  • Each attendee must collect all 20 trading cards. We’ll be marking the cards when they are turned in to ensure that they haven’t been used in another entry.
  • Baseball shirts are available to the first 500 eligible attendees who collect all 20 cards. Once the shirts are gone, you can still be entered into the drawing to win a bonus prize if you wish.
  • You will *not* be required by exhibitors, sponsors, or staff members to provide any personal information to collect the cards. This includes badge scanning.
  • Baseball shirt sizes subject to availability. O'Reilly Media reserves the right to cancel or modify this promotion if for any reason it is not able to be conducted as described. All decisions by O'Reilly are final.
