How about we announce the Winner of the 2014 Topps Blaster

Wow, what a response to the contest for the 2014 Topps Blaster.

Before I announce the winner, let me give a breakdown from the contest.

There were a total of 416 total comments aka entries.  An additional 230 entries were awarded for people who pubbed their own blog posts and another 100 entries for people following (or trying to follow) Zippy Zappy.  That makes 746 entries in all.

Just so you know, it was fun typing that list up for!

We had a total of 48 participants, some leaving only one comment and one that left 143 comments!

The blog reached a milestone by receiving it's 10,000th comment during the contest.  It came on this post and was from the one and only Night Owl.  Night Owl will be receiving a prize for leaving the 10,000th comment.  Many thanks to all of you who have ever taken the time to comment here!

Due to the overwhelming response, I've decided to award the winner a blaster of 2014 Topps as promised AND open another blaster and give two packs each to the people who were in spots 2-5 on the list.

Without further adieu, here is your randomized list!

The winner of the 2014 Topps Blaster is Deal, the owner of the fine Phillies blog, Phungo.

Congrats to Paul aka Deal!

Congrats also to Matt Pederson, Daniel Wilson, Night Owl and View from the Skybox.  They will each receive two packs of 2014 Topps.

Now, let's go ahead and award the rack pack to someone who pimped the contest on the original post.  

Congrats to The Big Kahuna from Enough Already.  You'll be getting a rack pack of 2014 Topps when it comes out.

Thanks again everyone!


  1. It wasn't me I only left 142 or slightly less. Although I had thought about wasting a day to see if I could hit all 1895 or so posts.

  2. Congrats to the winners. And thanks for another contest.

  3. Yay! 2 packs. May be the only 2 packs I get all year! Gee, I wonder who left those 143 comments???
