I picked up about 40 cards in ragged condition for a bit more than I would have spent in the dime box, but not as much as I would have spent in the 15¢ box.
So, I'd like to share some of my good fortune with you. Contest time. The winner takes away these six fabulous cards. As pictured.
Mel McGaha - card # 242
Lou Brock - card # 29
Hank Fischer - card # 342
Angels Rookie Stars - card # 367
Steve Hamilton - card # 69
Gil Garrido - card # 173
So how does one enter? I could ask that you submit your World Series predictions, with total number of ejections for the Series, but that seems like a long time to wait for a winner to be chosen. Doesn't the Series end around Thanksgiving this year?
I could ask that you pick your favorite post that I wrote this year, but that would limit it to about a dozen different choices.
Maybe I could ask you to write an essay as to why you think I still blog. Too much work on both of our parts.
Okay. We'll make this a random selection. Comment with one of the three options above (WS winner prediction - ejections not required, your favorite post of mine this year, or why you think I still blog). You must comment, but your answers don't sway the randomizer.
All good contests have a deadline to enter. This one should, too. Let's call it 8pm, Eastern, on Thursday, October 6th. The AL Division Series should start.
More rules. Sharing this post doesn't get you any more slots in the randomizer. Comment as many times as you'd like. One slot per blogger/reader. After the contest is closed I'll put all the names in the randomizer and click it as many times as I darn well feel like it. The winner will be announced later. The cards will be sent out via USPS, probably in a PWE. Really, what more could happen to them?
Thanks to my loyal followers who feverishly refresh the page hoping for some of the best card blog writing to come out of the greater KnoxVegas area. By that I mean that it probably in the top 10 card blogs in Sevier county, Tennessee.
Now, go comment and make me feel good.
