I took today off to give my back one more day of rest. I'm trying my best to keep myself horizontal, which means that there isn't much for me to do other than watch TV or read card blogs. So this morning, I spent about an hour catching up on everyone's blog posts.
That's when I discovered that P-town Tom is hosting his 3rd Annual Best Card of the Year Contest over on his blog: Waiting 'til Next Year...
It's easy to enter. All you need to do is write about your favorite card produced in 2018 and leave a link to your blog post here. Although he would prefer us to select a card currently sitting in our collection, he won't hold us to that rule. It's a good thing, because the card I'm nominating is the 2018 Topps Archives Fan Favorites Autograph of baseball statistician Bill James.
I've been wanting to pick up this card for my collection since I first laid eyes on it earlier in the year. I've thrown out more than ten bids, but haven't been able to win a copy yet. Maybe my luck will change and I'll have one in my possession before the end of the contest deadline, which is January 7th, 2019.
Well that's it for now. If you're interesting in seeing the prizes he's giving away, head over to his blog and see for yourself. And be prepared to share your Favorite Card of 2019.
Happy Monday and sayonara!
