Fans can win a Lions helmet signed by Barry Sanders, personalized to them

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on April 12, 2013 – 2:16 pm

In the “Old School” vs. “New School” Madden Cover Vote, Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders has reached the final four, currently head-to-head with Jerry Rice.

Lions fans on Twitter can enter to win a personalized, autographed Barry Sanders helmet, by voting and then !

After defeating Montana with a 57% majority (546,223 total votes), Sanders (@BarrySanders) tweeted:

“Wow! I didn’t think I would beat Montana on the #Madden25 vote. Thanks to all the fans! I’m coming for you @jerryrice

With Sanders so close to the cover title, family, friends and fans are coming out in droves to support the former Lions’ running back.

Montee Ball (@M_Ball28): Hey guys lets help out Barry sanders and go to and vote for Barry! #Madden25

Jarrett W. Payton (@paytonsun): Vote for my Uncle @barrysanders. Lets get him on the Madden25 cover. vote here or tweet #Madden25Barry #NFL

Thurman Thomas (@thurmanthomas): Lets get @BarrySanders some more votes!! #Madden25 Vote for Barry!!!

Holly Robinson Peete (@hollyrpeete): Everyone, PLS vote @BarrySanders for #Madden25 cover #Madden25Barry RT and vote to win a signed photo from B! XO

Dennis Rodman (@dennisrodman): Vote for my boy @BarrySanders for Madden25 contest. Tweet #Madden25Barry & tag @jbbernstein or enter online at

The vote has brought out Sanders’ competitive (and trash talking?) side.

Sanders tweeted: Thanks to all my friends and fans for the early support. Its Jerry – he’s got enough rings and awards and records.

Rice is definitely doing his own campaigning, so Lions fans will need to get out and vote. Voting ends April 17!

    As a long time Barry fan I can say that I will only by Madden is Barry is on the cover. I’ve never purchased a Madden title and this would be the only one.
