Friday when I got the mail I found the prize for Gint-A-Cuffs 2 waiting for me. I have to thank Mark, aka the Commish, for sending it over. I also have to thank Topps for donating the prize. The idea that a big company would get behind our little blogo-contest is pretty cool.
I'm pretty sure Beardy is somewhat involved in the whole thing so I'll thank him as well.
Unfortunately, I don't have nearly the number of base cards that Chris over at Nachos Grande does, but I know he was going to have a giveaway if he won, so I thought I would try to do something as well.
Here's the plan. I'm going to bust the box on Sunday night. Before I do, I'd like to give all Gint-A-Cuffs 2 participants (and Mark too) a chance to get a card from the box. If you were a participant (or commish) this year, leave a comment with your favorite team and I'll give away the hits from the box. For example, if you list the Red Sox and I pull two Sox hits, they are yours. I know you had a favorite team for Gint-A-Cuffs, but I need it relisted below.
This will be FIRST COME/FIRST SERVED and only one person can pick each team.
I'll be keeping the toploader and any Rangers hits as well as what I need toward completing the base set. I'll be happy to share any dupes down the road.
I'm limiting this giveaway to participants from Gint-A-Cuffs 2! If you didn't participate, don't worry, I'll still be having my regular contest on October 1st.
