The real May contest

The contest prize for May is already packed and ready to ship.
It's a box similar to this one. In it you will find 4 different items. Each of these items should be on a card traders list of "must-have" items. For example, one of the items could be a stamp for shipping a trade package (it's not a stamp). I know there are many items which fall into this category, but I have picked out these four and will be mailing them to the winner of the May contest.

"How do we enter Mr. PATP?"

Leave a comment guessing ONE of the items in the box. Everyone gets to guess ONE item. All the people who guess one of the items correctly will get randomized and that's how we'll get our winner.

I'm going to limit this contest to followers, non-followers, bloggers, non-bloggers, readers, men, women, children, Rangers fans, fans of other teams, people who pimp the contest on their blogs, people who don't pimp the contest on their blogs and people who leave a comment. I think that covers it.

Good luck!

  6. Blue painter's tape. The most underused and underappreciated tool of the trade. I'm sick of having to keep a stack of sticky toploaders and destroyed team bags when a piece of blue painter's tape makes everything easy to open and easy to reuse. There's nothing worse than a card showing up in mint condition and destroying it because someone decided a roll of packing tape was necessary for making sure the card doesn't fall out.

  8. It's got to be blue tape. Blue tape rules. Scotch tape drools and drowns in a puddle of its own drool.

  9. I'll repeat top loaders. You know it's going to be a mean card when the plastic gets tough.

  10. Penny sleeves. Just about every trade I've sent or received has had at least one card in a penny sleeve.

  11. I will say one of the items in the box is a great card or cards as no trade is complete without the cards being traded for. At least I hope thats what's in the box with some of the other items mentioned.

  13. masking tape or painters tape to keep a card in the toploader and not leave sticky stuff behind

  14. I will go with cards, as you must have cards in order to trade.

    Word veri: unlogicu

  16. I'm going to say what nobody else said, just for the fun of it: dummy cards to serve as padding/protection around the goodies!

  17. Its gotta be a card. You can't get rangers cards in the mail w/o sending out a card or three

  18. Penny Sleeves. Like Greensleeves, but without the catchy tune.

  19. everybody's friend, the team bag

  20. If I'm not too late I'll say an address book.

    (I have wasted so many hours hunting for addresses)

  21. Hopefully I'm not too late. I'll guess bubble mailers. EVERYBODY loves bubble mailers.
