This blog isn't a rogue company. Heck, it isn't a company at all. So I'm not going to ask you to buy a magazine subscription.
I am going to (finally) offer some prizes!
Why?, you ask as you quickly ignore the rest of the text in this post, only scanning for ways to win. Well, this blog has hit a milestone of sorts - this is post number 200. I can't believe I have this many posts already, since I started this blog in late February. Most of them aren't exactly what you'd call hard-hitting reporting, but I write what I feel is worth reporting on. Mostly show and tell, huh? To commemorate this momentous occasion, I'm going to give away a few stacks of cards!
First prize: I'll look at your want lists and pick up a few things off of it. I don't exactly have a job so I won't be getting you that Derek Jeter autograph you've always wanted but you should be happy!
Second prize: I have a stack of basketball cards that contains mostly rookies. I don't know anything about these guys, so I have no idea if they're worth anything. I think there's a couple numbered cards. There's at least one autograph in the stack. Oh, and a bit of fun. Plus, I'll try to find you something off your want list.
Third prize: Football, similar to the basketball lot but smaller. There is at least one jersey in there. Plus, I'll try to find you something off your want list.
Fourth prize: A small stack of non-sports cards, mostly inserts from Topps and Allen and Ginter. There are three certified autographs in this group. Plus, I'll try to find you something off your want list. Everyone's gotta get something they want, right?
So how do you enter? Simple! You get one entry for following my blog. You get one entry for commenting below. And you get one entry for shamelessly plugging my contest on your blog (please leave a link in your comment). That's up to three chances to win! But you can only win once, sorry.
The contest ends on June 16th at noon Pacific time, so I can look for stuff at the June 18 card show. I'll pick a winner that afternoon if I can (I have family arriving in town on that day too).
Entry one is done, and entry two is here! Entry three will come haha. Sounds like a terrific contest!ReplyDelete
Here is my 2nd entry. When and where is this card show? I read you mention it was in San Leandro, but I haven't been able to find a listing anywhere. Thanks.ReplyDelete

Congrats on 200, RG - and thanks again for the GQ swap, yours is on the way!ReplyDelete
I remember receiving the "You could be a Winner" envelope from 'ol Ed M. Or at least telling my parents that we were millionaires after checking our mail. Now I receive that dose of financial fiction in the form of emails from bankers in 3rd world countries!
Good luck to all in the contest!

Now following and entering. Hope to pimp it later. Thanks for the contest.ReplyDelete

I always appreciate a contest where the winnings involve digging through want lists. Unfortunately, my want lists consist entirely of Jeter autos, but they have to be on the bottom of cleats, only left ones!ReplyDelete
I'm following, and here's my shameless plug:
I love a contest!ReplyDelete
