Yep, I'm publishing my 500th post on the two-year anniversary of this blog! Two big milestones at once. Right here! Right now! And they said it couldn't be done! We proved them all wrong!
And yeah! You can't have a card blog celebration without a contest for free cards, so let's do it... CONTEST!
To enter, just comment on this post and (if you'll forgive fishing for compliments) tell me your favorite Baseball Card Breakdown memory from the past 2 years.
You can get a bonus entry if you pimp the contest with a link to this post on your blog, or on Twitter, or Instagram, or a card forum, or something along those lines (and then leave a comment here stating you did.. preferably with a link to it. Limit one such bonus entry per person).
[Update: the contest is now closed! Good luck to all who entered.]
I think for a prize I'm just going to send the winner a flat-rate Priority box full of cards. I'll try to curate it to the winner's particular collecting interests, but chances are the bulk of it will be a mishmash of various teams. I guess it depends on what the winner likes and what I've got available. But don't worry, I'll include some good stuff.
- at least one certified auto (of someone you've heard of)
- at least one relic card, and some numbered cards, parallels, and whatnot
- a custom glow-in-the-dark sketchcard of the player of your choice by yours truly
So yeah, I think I'd be able to put together a nice box that the winner would like. If needbe, I'll do some shopping (e.g. keep an eye out for cards for the winner at the show coming up in a couple weeks).
I guess you don't have to be a follower this go-round, but of course it's much appreciated. (Click that blue "Join this site" box on the right sidebar. And hey, why not follow on Twitter while you're at it.)
Non-US folks can enter, but if you win and don't have a US address, you'll get an abbreviated prize in the form of a PWE or two instead of a box. Sorry, but you know how it is with international shipping these days!
I'll let the contest run a few days till around the weekend then we'll randomly work out a Grand Prize winner. Chances are I'll be in a giving mood and end up with some runner-up winners and/or "second chance" contests, too! It's fun spreading around free cards, after all.
Ok, now let's celebrate 500 posts by reviewing the previous 499. No, I'm serious! Let's do it:
So those weren't exactly all in order (mostly by month, copy & pasted from the sidebar), but I think that should be all of them.
Thanks for stopping by and good luck should you choose to enter the contest!
So since we're celebrating the blog today, what's your favorite Baseball Card Breakdown moment?
