Contest! Win A Pair of Autographs!

It’s been awhile since I’ve held a contest…I think since our huge celebration of the 1 year anniversary of the blog. It’s time to give away some more stuff to our loyal readers.

I have for you a pair of autographs from recent reviews. With the NBA Finals about the start and heading into Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals about to occur in less than 24 hours, it’s only fitting that we have one autograph in basketball and one autograph in hockey to give away.

We have a Bob Sura Elusive Ink autograph and a Colin Greening NHL Ink autograph to give away. (Images at the bottom.)

All you need to do to enter this contest is to give me your thoughts on the product each of the cards came from. Please let me know what you think of Panini Past & Present basketball and Panini Contenders hockey. Please post your responses in the comment section under THIS post.

Simple as simple can be. This contest will end in one week on Monday, June 18, 2012, at 12:01 AM PST.

Names will be randomized as always. Good luck!

Blogoversary Contest #4 Winner

Well the blogoversary is coming to a close and a nice lot of game used and autographed cards was made available for this contest. I made sure there was a little of something for every sport and manufacturer so if you won, I’m sure there was something in there that you would like.

Anyway, everyone wants to see the actual number for the winner so here it is. After the first year of on the internet we have received:

That many total views. With current numbers almost hitting 20k per month, I think that’s a pretty solid debut.

So that means the winning guess is:

127,750 guessed by Shane K.!

There were a couple of other very close guesses within a few hundred by Shane pulled out victorious. Shane, I’ll be sending you an email shortly for your address to send this wonderful lot out to.

Thanks to everyone who has helped make this blog successful, at least in my eyes.


Blogoversary Contest #4 – The Bash

Blogoversary contest #4 is a little different then the others and with that difference comes some better prizes because this is a test of skill and a little bit of luck. has been viewed around 125,000 times since it went live on April 23, 2011. (+ or – 1,000) Your goal is to guess exactly how many views this blog will have at the end of the day on April 23, 2012.

The winner will receive the spoils, there is no doubt in that.

So we got a little bit of everything from each sport and each card company going out to the person who can guess the closest number of visitors at the end of the official blogoversary day. You have until Sunday, April, 22, 2012 to make your guesses.

(Hint: This site has gone up in viewers every month since it was created. So taking an average won’t get you close!)

Blogoversary #3 Winner

Blogoversary contest #3 has ended. And a winner has been declared. We’re just keeping it simple with the results shown below.

As a reminder, the winner receives a Panini NFL Player of the Day t-shirt and set of cards.

Drum roll please…

Well that picture isn’t that great. But if you look closely, it says Matt G.

So a big congrats to Matt G. Personally, I think it’s about time the randomizer gave him some love. I’ll be emailing you shortly for your address.

Look for another new contest starting tomorrow that should be a great one. I’ll have to put something totally awesome in that one since it will last until the official blogoversary date.

Stay tuned!
