It's about time we had a little contest around here

I'm under no illusion that I'm back at 100% when it comes to the blog, but I'm doing better and I thought I'd try another contest. A few days ago, the much maligned mother-in-law broke our agreement by showing up with two blasters of 2013 Topps. Being the good boy that I am, I told her politely to take them back. Or...maybe I thanked her profusely and tore them open like a kid on Christmas morning. I've already started doling out some of the stuff I pulled like the Matt Cain die cut. Now for the contest, which is why you're reading this post. Two blasters means two more manu-patches. All you have to do is correctly guess one of the ones I pulled. You can guess once each day over the weekend. That's three guesses. On the off chance that you accidentally guess more than once per day, I'll only count your first guess. I'll randomize all the correct guesses and send the winner a rack pack of 2013 Topps. Good luck and thanks for reading.

  3. Gwynn. Not that I even know if he has a manupatch card this year, but I'm sticking with Gwynn, and consider that my vote of Saturday and Sunday as well!

  5. Is that 1 guess per day? Or 1 guess per patch, per day? (since there are two patches)

    1st guess day 1:
    CP-23 Mike Schmidt - Phillies

    2nd guess day 1(if that's the case...):
    CP-7 Trevor Bauer - Diamondbacks

  7. That's awesome. My mother-in-law lives about 90 miles away. Sometimes when we go and stay for the weekend, I will find a pack of cards for me on the pillow of the guest bed. It's usually one of the $1.59 "Power Packs" from the random Target bin, so I get some good variety. Last time she got me 2008 UD Football Heroes.

  9. Al Kaline.

    In other news, did you ever send something for that Josh Hamilton heritage relic? I fear it was lost, if so. And, if so, no sweat.

    Thanks.
