August Contest Winner and ALL my 1999 SP Signature Edition autos

After much tabulating, list analysis and a touch of laziness, we have a winner for the August contest.

Some numbers associated with the contest:

41 people made 83 entries.
15 people entered all three days.
18 people mentioned the auction on their blog and get one entry for that.
There were 10 correct guesses.
I added 3 new followers and got 953 blog hits in three days. Not bad, considering I probably average a little over a 100 hits a day.

Here is a list of the 1999 SP Signature Series cards I have, along with the people who correctly guessed them. I believe there were 5 entries on the 1st day that came in AFTER I closed that one, so those did not count.

1. BD Ben Davis Padres---Rod(Padrographs)

2. CC Carlos Castillo White Sox---Tony MC

3. FS Fernando Seguignol Expos---Thorzul

4. GJ Geoff Jenkins Brewers---I Don’t Know…Third Base

5. JK Jason Kendall Pirates---Thorzul (the only person with two correct guesses)

6. JM Juan Melo Padres---Night Owl

7. KB Kevin Barker Brewers

8. KW Kevin Witt Blue Jays---one of the late guessers on day 1 guessed Witt, but it didn’t count (sorry)

9. MB Michael Barrett Expos

10. MC Mike Caruso White Sox

11. MV Mario Valdez White Sox
