Get Your Pimping Shoes Ready: The First Ever Cheap Card Collecting Contest!

Hey everyone, I'm back from vacation, I bought quite a few cards from Burbank Sports Cards, I have five box breaks to post, and I also have tons of mail to write about.

With this upcoming frenzy of posting, I'll begin a contest also. The contest will go for about a week with my flurry of posts and take on different forms.

First of all, most posts will have a card prize attached to each of them. Maybe a trivia question or prediction game. Each comment will also receive points (like over at San Jose Fuji's) towards a randomization.

Right now, I'm thinking that the 1st prize (decided by randomization) will be a bundle of Jerseys and Autos, with one Jersey and Auto added for each new follower gained (starting at 40 right now). We'll see how this works depending on how few or how many new followers I gain. Don't worry, the hits will be of average to good players across basketball, football, and baseball.

The next few places will probably be hobby packs and maybe some retail as well.

So for your first chance to get on the board:
Question for Points towards the Randomization: It's the usual. Follow or say that you're already following for one point and Pimp the contest for three points.


Card Prize for this Post: Everyone who follows, pimps, and comments below will be entered for a randomization. The winner can choose either:

Or



Yankees, Red Sox (kind of), that should cover most people. Of course, there are plenty of people who hate both teams so here's the vegetarian option: You can also choose from one of these Ginter relics.


Thanks and I hope you look forward to a fun week!
