No matter what you're talking about, from a very young age, one million is a lot.
"I'll bet you a million dollars!"
"Not in a million years!"
Two million is even more than that.
Unless you're a popular youtube video or a major league baseball player, two million is almost unfathomable.
Yet, this blog went over two million views last week.
Actually, it doesn't mean a lot, just that I've been doing this a long time. A quarter of the views were probably Russian robots in late 2016 and another quarter are probably me.
But anyway, it's an excuse to hold a contest giveaway.
And now you're instantly interested.
I figured that I wouldn't offer anything new on store shelves as the prize. There's already too much overemphasis on the newest on the usual social media sites anyway (pssst, they're trying to SELL you something).
Instead, the prize is going to be one card that has eluded your collection. What is a card that you've wanted for weeks, months, years? I'm not talking white whale here. I don't have the money or the time.
But for $40 or less, I will buy the winner one card that they have wanted for awhile, provided that it is easily available on COMC, ebay or sportlots. (I will be doing the determining on what "easily available" means -- I'm not getting into bidding wars).
This is what you do to enter:
Comment on this post.
In the comment, mention one reason why you click on this site. Just one.
In the comment, mention one card you'd be interested in winning. It doesn't have to be the card you eventually receive. If you're the winner, I will contact you and we'll figure if that's what you want or if you have something else in mind after having some time to think about it.
Make sure you have a working email address. If I do not have your email address already, I'm going to need you to contact me via email so we can get the transaction rolling.
The contest will be open for one week. It will close at 11 p.m. EST on Feb. 19th.
I will let the randomizer do its thing (the usual three times) and announce the winner. Then please allow several weeks for purchasing and shipping, because this milestone had to land during the busiest work period of the year.
As always, thanks for viewing and clicking.
And for those wondering where the heck the baseball card is:
Here is an image of George Foster after he signed the first $2 million-a-year contract in MLB history.
Let's hope things work out better on this blog than it did for ol' George after reaching that 2 million milestone.
