Tuesday night at 7:57 PM Pacific time, Steve Drennen picked Joaquin Andujar and Glenn Hubbard!!  You might have guessed by now that this is the correct answer!  Thanks a ton to all who participated, and stay tuned, because if I can round up some more battered stuff, I may do this again soon.  Congrats Steve, and e-mail me your address so I can send out your winnings!
6 beat up, well loved, hammered, trashed vintage cards!  For free?  Of course!  All to 1 lucky winner, but you'll have to work for them!

Now that I have your attention, here's the rules.  Keep in mind that these rules were devised by my 12 year old son.

1. The object of this contest is to name 2 MLB players (past or present) that I have pre-selected.  For example, you could name Babe Ruth and Miguel Cabrera.  You would not be right, but that would be a valid guess.
2. The first one to guess both players (in a single comment) gets all the cards above!
3. You must comment on this post for the guess to count.  No e-mail or guesses on other posts will be accepted.
4. You get 1 guess a day.  Extras will be ignored.

Hints will be given on a daily basis.  I doubt anyone will get the two players on day one, but you could get lucky.  So, ready to go???  Here are the 1st hints:

1. Both players were born outside the United States.
2. Both made at least 1 All-Star team each.
3. Both were born in the 1950's.
4. The 2 players played different positions.
5. 1 of the players was guessed more than once on Day 1 of the contest.  The other was not guessed at all.
6. Neither player ever hit over 12 home runs in a season.
7. Both players played in both leagues during their careers.

Good luck!
