The December Contest

This is it.

The final monthly contest of the year. Shocking I know, but it is December.

I've been trying to decide the best type of contest to hold. I'm not smart enough to crack a code, so developing one is out of the question. A trivia question could work, but might be easily answered (thanks internet!). Guessing a number, a team, my favorite Will Clark card...all possibilities.

However, I think I want to make this as easy as possible, but get a record number of entries. There isn't any easier way to enter a contest than to make a simple comment. It doesn't have to be about this blog, your blog, cards, sports, or anything is particular. The word "comment" or "in" or whatever other clean word you can think of will be just fine.

So there, no research, no thinking, nothing special. No blog pimping is required, you don't have to be a follower and you don't have swear never ending allegiance to the Texas Rangers. The catch is I'm leaving the contest open until Sunday night at midnight. You can enter once and only once per day and it has to be on this post. That gives everyone up to 5 chances to win. Oh, and entries will only count for that day so you can't wait until Sunday and enter 5 times. I know, what a jerk right?

The prize: A rack-pack of something baseballish and something else that falls in line with your collecting goals.

The winner will gain the final spot in the year-end contest in which someone will win something fabulous and unimaginably great (or something less so, but still nice).

Good luck!

  38. Hello. I go by "Tribecards" and this is my comment. I've been blogging for a few years now. (All in room reply, "Hello, Tribecards.") They say the first step in curing yourself is to admit the problem. I collect Indians cards. What's the problem?
