This is a repeat SPG Moments Auction from last year’s MLB season and it is a really cool one! For the person that has a good voice and really wants to sing the National Anthem before a Chicago Cubs game, this would be awesome to win. But, in many ways, the biggest winners would actually be the losers in this auction! Here are the details.
Sing the National Anthem Before a Chicago Cubs Game | SPG Moments Auction
So, here is how this SPG Moments Auction works. The top three winners in bidding will be able to send in a tape of their singing to be judged if they will be the one selected to sing the National Anthem at a Chicago Cubs game. Cool, right? But, it gets even better. The “winner” (it does not have to be the top bidder – just the one of the three top bidders selected by the Cubs) will also receive SPG Suite tickets (2) to the July 22 game between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals.
Here is how the losers can really be the winners. The two bidders that are not selected by the Cubs to sing the National Anthem at the Cubs game will receive all of their Starpoints back and receive a set of SPG Luxury Suite tickets to the Chicago Cubs home game of their choice during the second half of the season! That’s right – as long as you have enough Starpoints to hang with the top bidders and have a “bad” voice, you can get free SPG Luxury Suite tickets to any Chicago Cubs regular season game of your choice! Last year, the winning bid was 230,000 Starpoints.
Of course, there is going to be someone in the top 3 who really wants to sing the National Anthem. The funny part will be if none of the top bidders really wanted to and all submit some not-so-great audition tapes. In that case, it would probably be the best of the worst that would be chosen. 🙂
So, here are the auction details. Have fun with this and hope you win!

Yes, that is not the Chicago Cubs stadium in the featured image but it is the only MLB stadium picture I have. 🙂
