a pack and a couple of winners!

Random pack Monday, let's just get it out of the way here because I know you are all eager to see who the three winners are. Here we have a 1981 Topps.

The hat set, what'd we get:

Not too bad really, the Pete LaCock and TWO team cards are the standouts here.

Ok, ok. Now. On to business. Like I just mentioned about half an hour ago, I split the 65 entrants into three drawings. I put all the entries in and hit randomize twenty times. The winners came out being.....

Jordan over at Mint Condition
FanofReds aka Chris over at Nachos Grande
Jeremy over at No One's Going to Read this Blog

Congratulations to the winners! Please send me an email with your address so I can get these out when I go to the post office this week. I may throw in a few cards of your favorite team or from a wantlist if I can get to doing so.

This was a great success over all. I found a bunch of blogs I hadn't known about, added some followers and like I mentioned on Saturday, a bigger sense of community. If we don't have a bunch of us trading and reading and doing like we do on here, they why do it? I feel it is things like this that bring the community closer and more aware of others doing the same things we are. Thanks hugely to everyone that reads my blog here and thanks for participating in this contest!


  1. Even though I didn't win, thanks for the contest. It's always interesting to hear what other collectors think of certain sets.

  2. Well put, my friend. I am thinking of ways to bring the community even closer...stay tuned ;)

  3. Awesome contest. I'm trying to shoot you a line with my address, but the profile link doesn't work on my computer. Can you just print your email address here? Thanks.

  4. I dig contests. They're psychedelic, daddy-o!

  5. I'd love to bust a box of 1981 Topps baseball... thanks for sharing your pack!

  6. Even thought I didn't win, I still gotta give props to you for a really great contest. You rock!

  7. I think Gordy Pladson is still working on that chaw.

  8. Wow. thanks a lot!! This was one of the most creative and generous contests that I've entered. A really awesome prize.
