Need More Contest

Howdy folks! For awhile I've been thinking about doing a contest. One reason is to gain some new readers. Another is I want to give away some cards!!

Here are the contest rules:

1. You must be subscribed to this blog to enter.
2. To enter you must comment on this post.
3. You may gain TWO more entries by promoting this contest on your blog and commenting on this post with a link to your promotion.
4. For every contest entrant who indicates that they were referred by you, you will get an additional entry. So make sure in your promotion post you tell your followers to say that you referred them!

Easy, right?

Now I'm guessing you guys want to know what you're trying to win. Some people do contests for unopened packs. Some people do contests for single hits. Well I decided I wanted to give away a bunch of my own cards. So, I have put together two repacks from my own collection. That's right! We will have TWO WINNERS!

The repacks, (seen below), contain minis, base cards from non-flagship sets, parallels, inserts and FOUR HITS EACH. Both repacks contain two relics and two autos. They are not high end but I don't think that will upset you. =)


Repack #1, on the left, contains a few more cards and is overall slightly better than repack #2 on the right.

The contest will run until 11:59 PM EST on Saturday, March 15th. Shortly thereafter I will use random.org to determine the contest winners. I will randomize the list six times and whoever is at the top of the list on randomization number 6 will win repack #1. I will then randomize another six times and whoever comes out on top will win repack #2. 

Thanks for entering guys and don't forget to promote promote promote!!!

  5. Cool idea for a contest. Already follow so 1 and now 2 apply nobody referred me to this contest since I'm already a follower. I might do a pimp so 3 is in limbo right now.

  13. I did 1, 1, 1 for the follow and 2, 2, 2 for the comment and 3, 3, 3 is this website (http://offhiatusbaseball.blogspot.com/2014/03/need-cardboard-needs-you.html) and 4, 4, 4 is Captain Kirk.

    Um, yeah, that sounded a lot better in my head as a concept than it came across on the page. But thanks for the contest!

    not that he needs any more help in the luck department, but Play At The Plate ordered me to come here and enter.
    and I always do what he says or he stops sending me cards.
