Yesterday, I published the thousandth post on this blog and figured the best way to celebrate would be to hold a contest and give away some cards. It's my way of saying "thank you" to all of you who have supported this blog over the years.
There will be four prize packages totaling 1,000 cards... given away to four contest winners. Each package will contain a sports card lot catered to the winner's favorite team(s). I will try to include autographs, memorabilia cards, oddballs, inserts, rookie cards, and of course base cards in each prize package.
First Place: 400 Card Lot
Second Place: 300 Card Lot
Third Place: 200 Card Lot
Fourth Place: 100 Card Lot
Okay... now that we've established the prizes, it's time to address the contest details:
How long will I run the contest? The contest will last 1,000 hours, which is equivalent to 41 days and 16 hours. In other words, the contest will officially close on Saturday, June 7th at 7am.
How do you enter and participate in the contest? If you're familiar with my past contests, then you know it's all about earning contest entries by responding to my blog posts. Confused? I'll break it down for you...
There are three ways for you to enter.
#1 - Leave a comment below for one entry.
#2 - Plug this contest on your blog for THREE bonus entries.
#3 - Leave comments on my posts between now and June 7th.
On June 7th, I'll enter everyone's names from this post into the list randomizer at www.random.org.
If you plug this contest on your blog, I will add your name three additional times.
And as a final bonus, I will randomly select four posts during the contest time frame (excludes today's posts) using www.random.org. Anyone who leaves a comment on any of those posts will have their name added to the randomizer two additional times.
That means if the stars are aligned for you, you technically could receive a total of twelve contest entries.
Let's kick things off with today's question of the day:
What sports teams/players do you collect?
I pretty much collect anything related to sports, but my primary focuses are on these teams/players: Oakland A's (especially Kurt Suzuki), San Diego Padres (Tony Gwynn), Steve Carlton, Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux, Ichiro Suzuki, Jackie Robinson, Green Bay Packers (Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre), Seattle Seahawks (Steve Largent), Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, San Jose Sharks (Devin Setoguchi), Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, San Jose State Spartans, Stanford Cardinals, and Cal Bears.
I look forward to reading your responses over the next 1,000 hours. Happy Saturday and sayonara!
