You can check to see how many times your name was entered by checking out the final contest standings:
So as you can see... Martyn had his name entered 36 times, dawgbones 35 times, Ryan G 34 times... and so on... and so on.
Here's the word document with all 524 contest entries:
And before I get to the results... I'll explain the randomization process. I started by cutting and pasting all 524 names into Random.org's list randomizer. I clicked "randomize" five times and whoever was on top was the winner. To prevent that person from winning more than one prize, I removed their name from future randomizations.

Okay... now here's how you're going to go about claiming your prize. If you're Kirk, then it's simple... he just needs to email me what prize package he wants... and it's his.
The second place winner... John B... needs to email me his first and second choice selections. If his first choice and Kirk's first choice are the same... then I'll default to John's third choice.
The third place winner... The Diamond King... needs to rank his top three prize selections. And this process will continue... all the way down to the eleventh place winner... Sir Offy... who will list out all eleven prizes in his order of preference.
My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
All eleven winners must submit their mailing addresses and their prize rankings by Sunday, July 31st by 4:oopm (PST). If I don't receive your prize selection email, then I will skip over you and you will receive whatever is left over.
Surprisingly... neither Martyn or dawgbones... who had a combined total of 71 entries... placed in the contest. However... that doesn't seem fair... so both of you please contact me with your address along with a list of teams/players you collect and I'll put together a package for you.
jaybarkerfan... I have something for you too... so please email me your address as well.
Kazi, please email me your address... you won the Stadium Club Master Photos earlier in the contest.
And last... but not least... to anyone who didn't win a prize... email me if you'd like an autographed copy of my trading card (business card). FYI: These will be mailed in plain white envelopes to save on shipping... so please no ranting ;-) All other prize packages will be mailed in padded envelopes or in boxes.
Once again... thanks again to everyone who participated in this year's contest. It was a lot of fun... and I hope to be able to continue doing this for years to come.
Have a great weekend everyone... and I look forward to receiving your emails with the prize selections!
