Check it out giveaway

 OK, as promised I have a little giveaway for those who were willing to look at my video in the last post and respond with something constructive for me.  

Here are the people who commented, and are eligible at the moment (read on to become partially eligible!):

The Angels In Order
Johnnys Trading Spot
night owl

Now 'constructive' is a pretty vague way to put it, so I will leave it to them to determine if they were constructive in their comments, lol.

Each of those commenters above can pick up to 6 cards from the scans below as their reward.  Use the usual method, scan/page number-card number.  So if you want the "Ron Hunt All Time Mets" in the second scan below, then you would select 2-6.

**Now it's not too late!  If you want some of these cards, but didn't comment on the previous post, you can still go there, watch the video and leave me a constructive comment on that post.  Then you can come back here and choose up to 3 cards from the scans.  Only those in the list above are eligible for picking 6 cards.

The cards will be sent in a PWE, and won't probably go out until mid-next week.  I am going to be out of town for a bit.

Some cards are beat up a little like the Bench in the first scan.  Hopefully the scans show the condition OK.

I kinda doubt the auto on the Warren Giles is authentic, but you never know.

  1. Woah, I'm three hours late and somehow I'm first?!?!

    So many great cards to choose from. I'll go with these:

    1-2 DeCinces, 1-5 Bench
    4-8 Yount
    6-6 Cabrera, 6-8 Aaron
    9-4 Dominguez

    Thank you very much for the exclusive giveaway :D

  2. I just left a comment--hope it's OK to pick my three before those entitled to 6 go. If there's a problem, let me know and I'll re-draft later, but if I can:

    2-4 Noah
    2-5 McNeil
    4-3 deGrom

    Always nice when I can find Mets stuff I need! Thanks and good luck with the project.

  3. I sheepishly raise my hand as being a late commenter on the last post! But I would love the following three cards if not already spoken for:

    3-6 (Rizzo)
    6-4 (slaughtered Slaughter)
    10-2 (Dizzy Dean!)

    Thanks so much!!

    1. Done! The Slaughter is actually 6-5 for future commenters.

    2. Slaughtered Slaughter! I love it.

  4. I hope my comment was helpful; I don't have much experience with those kinds of things. If so, I would like to claim the following cards:

    1-1 Brock
    1-5 Bench
    1-6 Lindor
    1-8 Giles
    3-3 Robinson
    7-5 Aparicio


    1. The Bench was already claimed, but the others are yours. Feel free to claim one more if you want!

    2. Didn't see that Chris already claimed it. In that case, I'll take 6-9 (Lindor).

  5. I watched the video again, sorry, forgot to comment, probably because I'm not computer savvy.

  6. I too am a late commenter, but what you got so far is something way more than I could do!

    If possible, may I claim:

    3-1 (my first Billy Ripken!)

    If any of the original commentators wants any of the 3, I'll happily give it up to them. Thank you for your generosity!

  7. I am not a late commenter, just a late commenter (get it?) ... Anyway, I pick:

    1-3 (Brock), 1-9 (Ray)
    2-3 (Gonsolin)
    3-7 (Freeman)
    4-6 (Kershaw blue)
    7-1 (Al Lopez)
    Thank you, not sure how much my input helped.

  8. Hey I am all in on the rest of those (well 6 of them anyways) Batman.

  9. I'll claim 10-4 if available. Thanks!
