As sometimes happens when I have an idea for the blog, I don't think of all the angles until I've already posted it. After I started taking trades for the Tradeathon contest, I started thinking about how I was going to decide what to cards to make offers for and I didn't really have a plan.
I could just offer trades for early Topps cards, but without a clue as to what you guys might want, it would just be a shot in the dark. As I was thinking about this problem, another idea came to mind and I wanted to get your input on it, since it will have an impact on those of you who are participating.
Instead of trading for something and then randomizing it off, how about if I do the randomization first? That way the winner gets to give me some feedback on what team, player or year they want me to try to obtain.
Let me know what you think of that idea. Since I didn't put it out that way in the original post, I'll only change to the new plan if it's ok with the majority of the participants. Leave a comment with your thoughts please!
On a side note, I have two more people that have expressed an interest in the Tradeathon and if we can coordinate a time to get the trades completed, we'll have more trade bait.
