Contest Reminder

Just a reminder about my contest that ends tomorrow. I've only had one person participate through my blog and a few others through my YouTube channel.

I realize the contest is not sports related, but the prizes certainly are, so be sure to enter!

Here are the possible prizes!

Sunday, November 8, 2015


I'm holding a contest to support a friend of mine and his band: Safe, So Simple. Check out the video for a couple different ways you can win some sweet cards!

Here are the links you'll need.


The first 3 people to pre-order the EP and shirt will get to choose a card. The first person that pre-orders and lets me know will get first pick and so on. I will be confirming that a pre-order has been placed. Everyone that subscribes to their YouTube channel and likes them on Facebook and leaves a comment below will be entered into a separate drawing for one of the cards. I will end the contest one week from today on Sunday, November 15th at 3 pm. This will be posted via YouTube and my blog, but you can only enter on one platform. Thanks and good luck!

eBay Pick-Up: 1960 Topps Hank Aaron

I work 5 am - 2 pm, so I have to wake up at 3:40 am each morning. Even on the weekends it's hard for me to sleep past 5 am most days. When we were on vacation earlier this month I was up hours before everyone else. I spent those hours on my phone and made a few ebay purchases.

I picked up a small lot of 1960 Topps cards that included a Hank Aaron and a Warren Spahn. The cards are in rough shape, but the Aaron is a great addition to my Hank Aaron collection.

You can see a number 9 written on the Spahn card. There was a number 7 written in pencil on Hank's bat, but I erased it.

TTM Success: Marty Cordova

I got two cards back from the 1995 American League Rookie of the Year, Marty Cordova. I sent them out on 8/10 and got them back sometime during the week of October 5th. I was on vacation that week, so I don't know the exact date I got it back.

eBay Pick-Up: 2015 Triple Threads Yasmany Tomas Auto

I picked up this 2015 Triple Threads Yasmany Tomas Auto RC numbered to 99 for less than $10 shipped. I love the red background. It is a sticker auto, so that is the only downside.
