πŸ”” πŸ”” πŸ”” Giveaway post πŸ”” πŸ”” πŸ””


OK, here it is, the Giveaway post. Sorry it took so long, but time has not been my own for the last month or more.

So, as I explained before, those who are eligible for the 10th anniversary card draft giveaway may now enter by commenting on this post. Whatever you comment is your entry.

I had 26 different card prizes available when I first announced the giveaway. These are them:


Also, I said I'd add a few more items, just to get a few more people into the contest.

I was able to dig up five more items. Here they are:


A 1954 Bowman Don Newcombe.



A shiny gold Willie Mays card from 2012, don't ask me what it's from.



A 1933 Goudey card of John "Heinie" Sand. I won this in a blog contest several years ago. It was once the oldest card I owned. Since then, I've accumulated others that are older or equal to it. And those are Dodger cards, so this one can fly free now.



Six 1971 Topps cards. I tried to keep all selection to a single card apiece, but I figured I'd lump these guys together. They've been handled but they're in pretty decent shape.



And, finally, the wild card in the group. Johnny's Trading Spot sent me a 24-pack box of 1993 Leaf, Series 1. Quite generous, but it's not anything that I care to collect, despite it featuring one of the best card backs of all-time.

Whoever picks this, however, beware of cards welded together.

OK, so that amounts to 31 prizes, meaning 31 people can enter the contest before I close the door on it.

The first 31 of the people above who comment on this post will be entered into the giveaway. I'll link this post on the sidebar in the event it doesn't fill right away, although people tell me it won't take any time at all to fill up.

Once 31 folks have entered, then I'll randomize the comments and conduct the draft on this blog. However, I'm not sure when that will happen. Once again, time constraints.

So are you ready? Go.

  21. It looks like we have 31 participants as of and including Corky's comment. ... Mr haverkamp will have a chance to pick if one of the participants doesn't select in a timely manner (I haven't decided what that will be, probably within a day or so) or if there are prizes left over. ... Thanks for entering!
