As I sat at my computer the other night pondering what to do, my wife saw my pensive look and asked me what was the matter. I told her that I was struggling to figure out what to do about the contest. She looked at me and said, "you haven't done your contest yet? you hit 50 followers last week, quit being a slug and get on it".
LOL....so here goes, the contest is naturally open to anyone who reads the blog. NO PIMPAGE REQUIRED. (although of course I will be sure to pass along a thank you to anyone who does) Now I know of at least one other contest going on over at Play at the Plate, so I'll leave this one open for a few days. I'm also going to use this contest to steal some ideas from you guys & gals. Here's what I want:
I'll start off to give you an idea of what I'm looking for:I want you to tell me your favorite sports moment, and why. It can be from any of the four major sports (Baseball, Football, Hockey, Basketball), and your description should include at least one card that reminds you of the event.
My favorite sports moment was Joe Carter's game winning home run in the 93 World Series against the Phillies. As a Jays fan, it was the crowning moment on 2 years of great times for the Jays, and the Skydome literally went nuts when the ball went over the wall. I actually screamed out loud at the TV when he hit it, and I'll never forget the moment. The card I will use to illustrate the HR is 1994 Score card # 625.
|Touch em all Joe!! you'll never hit a bigger HR in your life|
Now of course you will not be able to scan cards into the comment section, but if you just list the year, card # and player, that will suffice.
The card doesn't have to depict the actual moment like this one does, just a card that reminds you of the player/event that you describe will suffice.
I don't have a clue what I will have for the winner, but I will likely detail the winnings towards what the collector wishes (cards/packs/ or combo of both). Naturally, the winner will be determined by random selection off of random.org, just as everyone else does. I will give everyone until Tuesday, November 8th at 1159 EST to post your entry. I look forward to your responses.
Thank you for reading, Robert
