Spring cleaning giveaway/contest final update

Here's what I'll be doing this week...
Hi everybody!

To say that this giveaway exceeded my wildest expectations would be an understatement.  Not only was I able to end it more than a week early, but also every single lot was claimed!  The amount of space this has opened up for my card closet is priceless (other than, uh, shipping), and I'm much happier getting those lots into the hands of collectors that want them instead of unceremoniously dumping them by other means.

So, how about an informative update, bullet-style?:

  • Most importantly, I need addresses from quite a few of you.  If you're on this list, please send them soon so I can get your stuff packaged this week:  Al Kawamoto (Hockey Kazi), Alex (Chavez Ravining), Chris (Nachos Grande), Chris (Raz Card Blog), Chuck Bartz, defgav (Baseball Card Breakdown), Jack (Baseball Dad), Josh Liss, Kyle Wong, Mark (Baseball Nation), Max (Starting 9), Tony (Off Hiatus Baseball), Triple Play Autos.  You should have my email from my responses to your entries, but if not, it's CalJr3000 at gmail.
  • We have a total of 25 entrants and 117 entries
  • The randomization will be sometime tomorrow afternoon (up in the air due to Father's Day festivities).  I'll put up a post so everyone knows what's going on, then I'll have the winners choose what they want draft-style
  • Canadian entrants:  as I mentioned, some of the prizes are a bit too large to cost-effectively ship them north of the border.  We'll cross that bridge if/when we come to it, but I have a couple contingencies for you just in case, so don't worry
And most of all,


  1. Dang that's a lot of mailers! Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Sure is, and even those might not be enough! Thanks for playing.
