A Group Break & A Contest

A couple months ago, I joined a great group break at Cardboard Collections. I love his affordable breaks, as they are usually oddball products and/or nostalgic products. Also, you pick your team and then randomly get assigned another team in each spot. So for this one, I picked the Astros and Dodgers, while I was randomly assigned the Padres and Rockies. I wanted to show off the the Padres and Dodgers hits that I got in this post. The "big" product in this one was 2004 Clubhouse Colleciton, which by itself promised 20 hits!
Stay tuned to the end, there's a contest brewing!

So, here's the lone Padres hit:
Ramon Hernandez - all I remember about him is that he was a serviceable catcher who spent most of his time with teams in in the west: Oakland, Sand Diego, Colorado and LA were all stops in his 14 years.

Now, the Dodgers:
Kaz Ishii, another one of those Japanese pitchers that came over to MLB that we all thought would be superstars. It didn't quite work out for Kaz, he only spent 4 seasons in America before heading back to Japan. My one memory of him pitching against my Astros is not a good one for him, as he was hit with a line drive in the face off the bat of Brian Hunter. It was very scary to see any pitcher have that happen to them.

Alright, here's the mack daddy of them all!
Jackie FREAKIN Robinson! WOW! The box overall had some great cards, and I was very happy my gamble on the Dodgers paid off! Thanks Colbey, greatly appreciate the break!

So, a contest. Here's the deal: I'm not sure people realize I'm blogging again. I need to create some awareness. So here we go: You see that Jackie Robinson card? I'm GIVIING IT AWAY. Yep, that's right, it won't stay in my collection long. Here's the rules:

1) Comment on this post. Doesn't matter what you say, you can call me an idiot or a dimwit or just comment on how much you dislike the color scheme of the blog.
2) Tweet or blog about this post with a link to this post included.
3) Return to this post, reply to your own comment with a link to your tweet/blogpost.
4) Wait until Wednesday the 23rd, as I will take all entries and randomize the list of entries, first person in the list gets the JACKIE ROBINSON RELIC!

Well, how about that? Thanks for stopping by folks.

  9. I sure hope that the people entering this contest are longtime readers of your blog, not just some first-timer jumping in just for the free Jackie relic. :D

  13. I kinda feel bad, as you're the one who also generously offered to have Colbey send the Shawn Green card from that break my way. But nonetheless, here's my entry comment!
