As I mentioned yesterday, I received my prize from a recent contest held by UncleMoe over at My 2008 Topps Set Blog. It was an unopened box of 2010 Bowman Chrome. Ooh Shiny!
Wow, that sounded dangerously close to "ooh Justin Bieber!" I won't go there.
Moving on...I pulled one orange refractor #ed out of 25. The orange refractors fall 1:284 packs (almost 1:16 boxes) so I felt like I was pretty fortunate to pull one.
So, here's the contest. You get to make three guesses related to the orange refractor. First, guess the team. Get that right and you get one entry. Second, guess the number out of 25. Get that right and you get 5 entries. Lastly, guess the player. Get that right and you get 25 entries.
You don't have to get all three things right. Maybe you only get the serial number. You'll end up with 5 entries. Maybe you get the team AND serial number. That's 6 entries. Maybe...just maybe, your dense and guess the Angels, but pick Josh Hamilton. Then you shall be severely reprimanded and made to stand in the corner.
If, by some miracle of miracles, you end up getting all three, I'll give you the contents of the entire box, including the auto. If more than one person does this, first there WILL be an investigation and then I'll split the box and add some goodies.
After I close the contest, I'll randomize all the entries and the winner will get all of his/her favorite team's cards from the box. The team you guess for the orange refractor doesn't necessarily have to be your favorite team.
Here is a sample entry:
Washington Senators #XX/25 Frank Howard (Fav Team: Texas Rangers)
Confused? Get your entries in...I won't be keeping this one open more than a day or so.
And yes, more than one person may pick the same team.
