Home > Uncategorized > CONTEST TIME!


This isn’t exactly finalized, kinda just me throwing a bunch of ideas together and here is what you get. I’ve been trying to come up with something to get the site a little more traffic. I’m proud of my 275  page views, but everybody loves to have more people read their stuff.. Right? With my old blog, we asked Mario at Wax Heaven for a link and we had some 200 page views in that single day and had a steady following after that, I think this blog just needs a little bit of a jump start. And now that I’ve got quite a few posts up, I thought this would be good timing because people stopping by the site for the first time can get a feel for my style of writing & what not. Best idea I’ve come up with: give away FREE CARDS!

That’s right, I’m a sell-out. Deal with it.

I’m simply going to do a random.org randomization to come up with the winner, and here is how you get entries:

1) Comment here for one entry.

2) Give the contest a ‘shout out’ on your blog for another entry.

3) Add my blog to your blogroll for a third entry. (If it already is, that still counts as an entry.)

I’ll accept entries until next Tuesday at midnight eastern time. Winner will be announced sometime Wednesday night.

Oh, and the cards that will be given away?

Rickie Weeks Auto  #/250

Rickie Weeks Upper Deck Etchings Rookie Autograph #/250

David Murphy Auto

2009 Upper Deck David Murphy Auto

Trevor Hoffman Sweet Spot Jersey

John Lackey Jersey #/125

John Lackey Heroes Jersey #/125

2008 A&G Chase Utley Jersey

Vlad Guerrero Bat

Vlad Guerrero National Chicle Back Bat #/199

Winner gets everything, and once we know who the winner is I’ll add some cards of your favorite teams or maybe some stuff off of your want list.
