Contest Time

First, I want to wish everyone a great Memorial Day. I want to thank all of our service personnel and veterans for your dedication and sacrifice to keep us safe and allow us all to do what we do. THANKS!

On my blog efforts I currently have 11 followers and about 450 hits. I would like to have many more : )

So, like many other bloggers, I too am having a contest and I thought I would give away this card. A 2012 Topps Archives Zack Greinke Relic Card.

Here's the rules, follow my blog and leave a comment relative to what you like to collect and why and I will enter one entry. Give my contest some love on your site and share the link and I will add another entry into the contest.  I will then random the entries on random.org 5 times Wednesday night and will announce the winner on Thursday.

Again, I would like to hear what you are collecting, make some friends, maybe even some trades and promote my blog. I would appreciate the participation.

Best of luck and I appreciate all the support!

  25. I am a HUGE Astros fan after meeting most the players as Spring Training a few years back. My parents were card dealers in the 80s and 90s, so when they got out of the business they gave me all of their cards, which really got me interested in collecting. My main focus is Hunter Pence, I met him 5 or 6 times already and he is the nicest of the many players I've met. He plays with heart and hustle and seems to love what he is doing, which I extremely respect.

    Thanks for the contest, if you are interested in trading shoot me an email!

  26. Atlanta Braves and Carolina Panthers fan. Outside of my teams I have more players I collect than I care to list! Several of the players I collect share the same Faith as I. I've got two little girls that I hope to be able to share my passion of sports and trading cards with as they get older.

    I've been a little behind trading and such, but I'm always willing to help a fellow blogger out.

    Contest "pimped" as well...

  32. I collect Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, Russell Martin, Ryan Getzlaf, Al Rosen, Roy Campanella, and a host of others in all four major sports.

    Kemp, Kershaw, and Getzlaf are my favorites in their respective sports. I'm a big fan of Russ and miss him as a Dodger, while Campy is Campy and Rosen is one of my favorites and an underrated guy. A real mensch.
