I enjoy Twitter. I'm not a big tweeter, but I enjoy certain hockey/football insiders that get the inside scoop on all the happenings in the sports world that I care to know about.
I also follow a few of the card bloggers/case breakers out there as well. A lot of the conversations that I've seen on Twitter regarding card related issues have kept me entertained, as well as informed. Twitter is where I learned that Topps had its' exclusive license with MLB extended until the year 2020 (which is a conversation for a later date, I still have to process what this means to the hobby, and to me).
Twitter is also where I won something.
Yes, you read that correctly. I awoke to an email from Twitter last week stating that I had won a prize from one of the many card breakers that I follow.
Well alrighty then!!!
Saturday I come home from running errands to a brown envelope in my mailbox. Less than a week from providing my address to receiving my prize, from Canada no less.
Now, it's not a card that features the blue and white of my beloved Maple Leafs, but for free, this is still a pretty damn good card.
A dual jersey of P.K. Subban and Josh Gorges from 2012-13 SP Game Used. Yes, it features a couple of players from the Evil Empire of hockey (at least from where I sit), but I still can appreciate the card design. It helps that at least one of the swatches isn't white as well.
It reminded me that I'm overdue to run a contest here as well. I plan to do one at the beginning of April, so stay tuned for that.
Thanks for reading, Robert
