Baseball Card Breakdown passed the 100 subscribers threshold the other day, which is pretty sweet. Thanks to everyone who's "joined this site", with specific welcoming high-fives to newcomers Kyle, Tree (the special #100!), buckstorecards, and phoenix_nange (Flip the Bip winner). I know # of Blogger subscribers isn't really a big deal (and I promise to stop talking about it now), but it feels good from an OCD standpoint to break into triple digits.
Here's the deal for this contest:
- If you entered the One-Year Anniversary Contest, you get an automatic entry in this contest.
- If you played Flip the Bip, you get an(other) entry.
- If you've sent me cards since the One-Year Anniversary Contest kicked off (purchases excluded), you get an(other) entry.
- And if you comment on this post, you get an(other) entry.
So that's a possible maximum of 4 entries per person.
Recent winners (jacobmrley and phoenix_nange) are not eligible for this contest.
[update, 7/13/14 9:30pm EDT: this contest is now closed.]
The window to comment on this post for the bonus entry will last just till around the end of the weekend. Then I'll randomize to assign numbers to everyone, and we'll use a stat from a forthcoming baseball game to decide a winner (most likely the All-Star Game).
Here's what's on the table:
|Lot A - 4 cards: Davy Lopes, Al Oliver, Bob Brenly, Adam Eaton|
|Lot B - 3 cards, a phan's dream: HOFer Fergie Jenkins, Bob Dernier, Greg Luzinski|
|Lot C - another team-centric lot, this time O's: Earl Weaver, Cuellar, Grich, some kid.|
|Lot D - Luis Tiant, Tony Armas, Tony Fernandez, Mike Rouse|
|Lot E: Tony Oliva; a couple Yankees, Bobby Richardson and Dave Phelps; & Ruddy Yan|
|Lot G - Here's a big name! Ernie Banks (w/COA); plus Jim Frey, who led the Cubs to the playoffs in '84.|
|Lot J - A couple Tigers, Kirk Gibson and Don Kelly.|
|Lot K - This lot is specifically inspired by hiflew who complains Colorado wasn't represented in the Topps Retired sets. Well, here's the Rockies' Charlie Hayes for ya! Plus a couple D-back prospects who didn't pan out (sorry, I don't have any other Rockies autos available!).|
|Lot L - Here's a new 5-card lot. I have/had 2 each of the Boston and Frey autos, which is why they've popped up in other lots as well. Jason Bartlett was an All-Star with Tampa in '09.|
Thanks for reading and good luck!
