I'm still finalizing things for this year's spring cleaning, mainly trying to establish lots to my satisfaction, but now I'm thinking I should be ready to kick things off this weekend (don't hold me to that!). I have a bunch of different groups available from three sports, and I'm hoping I get a lot of interest so this could be fun for everyone.
While I'm still wrapping things up on that front, I thought I'd start generating some buzz by showing off the prizes that will be available to participants. This weekend's post will have more details on rules and such, but for now, here's what winners will be able to choose from:
1. The Tulo auto I picked up at a recent show for just $2. I already have an autograph of him I like, and I decided that my good fortune should be yours. Out of everything I'm offering I'm expecting this to be the top prize, so I figured I'd lead off with it.
2-5. How about some unopened packs?! In order above, there's a blaster of 2008 UD 1&2 (five fat packs of 36 cards each), a value pack of 2014 UD football, a value pack of 2013 Panini Triple Play, and one of those 100-card "Super Value Pack"-type deals, which I know some of you enjoy.
6-8. Hitsville, USA! First up is the Verlander/Billingsley/Carmona/Chamberlain quad jersey Matt from Bob Walk the Plank so generously sent me recently, but I already had--I'm sure someone will want that! Next is a pair of star football relics, jerseys of QB Warren Moon and WR Julio Jones. Lastly is a duo of Michigan uni defensive hits: an auto of Shawn Crable and a jersey of Prescott Burgess. I know some of you that follow me are Michigan fans so I'm hoping someone's excited to nab these.
10. A complete set of 2014 UD football Star Rookies (#s 51-150), and the 10-card Andrew Luck Heroes set. The base set includes lots of hot RCs, including the top QBs, especially Manziel, Bortles, and Bridgewater, and a lot more big-time college action. Meanwhile, the Luck insert set focuses on that guy's star-studded career for the Cardinal.
11. I said this went to 11, didn't I? Here's your chance to get one of Johnny Football's first RCs for free!
Besides all that, I plan to try to throw in something extra in each package I send out, while supplies last. These may include cards of your favorite team, older minor league or insert sets, or other interesting things I can dig up.
I hope a look at what you can win by getting free cards from me has sparked your interest that that you'll be glued to this blog this weekend in anticipation!
