post #62! and a give away!

I have noticed a number of contests/giveaways on other blogs since I started this and they seem to be rather popular. Since I started collecting, I have obviously gotten some doubles. These are those doubles. What am I doing with them? Giving them to you, the reader. One lucky reader will take home (once it is mailed to you) my box of duplicates. Its not EVERYTHING that I have dupes of, otherwise it would be a whole box of 2010 Topps and 2010 Opening Day and a couple of other years and sets. What I have done for those two sets is kept a certain amount of cards, per card, and everything above that would be put in this box. It didn't come out to all that much really. Now, you want to know how you can get your hands on it? All it takes is a guess. Here's the lowdown; the box holds about 800 or so cards. As you can see from the picture, it has various years and sets in it. It contains cards from 1981 through 2010. There are a few before '81 but I'm not including them in this contest. Don't worry, the junk wax is limited to maybe a fifth of it. There are three years excluded from the box. Guess which three years in a comment between 1981 and 2010 and the first reader to guess at least two of the three years will win the box. Leave your comments in this fashion; 198x, 199x, 200x. Good luck and thanks for reading!
