Giveaway Day 1 and Rules

Ok boys and girls, thanks for all the comments yesterday and over the years!  Its giveaway time!

I will be posting 9 different items to be given away, one per day for the next 9 days.  You each get 3 entries, and an entry will be used by commenting on the day that you want that days item.

For example, lets say you don't like the items on day 1 or 2, but day three's is in your collecting wheelhouse.  Leave a comment on the Day 3 post and you are entered for that item in a drawing.

You can wait until all of the 9 days are posted and then choose which 3 to comment on if you like, but as an added wrinkle, the first 3 commenters on each days post will get double entry for that item.

Oh, and if you didn't get the news from yesterdays post, you have to have already commented on my blog sometime in the past to be eligible.
End Rules

The items will be strange and varied. Some might be very popular.  Some might be less so.  Some might 'make you go hmmmm'.  Hopefully there will be something that appeals to most, but keep in mind that a large part of what I decided to put in the items was determined by my desire to rid myself of it!

So, wanna see day 1's item???

Day 1:  A smorgasborg of Vintage-y cards in very questionable condition!

 Click for a closer look.  I apologize for the photos, I'll do better next time!  There are some great cards in here, big, big names!  All, however, are beat up.  Some, like the Bench, Perez and West are truly hammered.  Others like the McCovey, Ryan and a couple of the All-Time Record holders are just a bit off.

A couple of closer views:

Comment away!!


  1. Only a fool passes on vintage. Though, I will be the exception and say I am in.

  2. I'm always up for some vintage. I'm in on this one!


  3. Missed the double entry. Count me in.

  4. I'm the type of guy who would sit back and wait to see all 9 prizes... but when you giving away vintage cards like these, there's not a doubt in my mind. I'm in like Doug Flynn.
