Back with a Bang! A Contest for All!

Summer is seemingly always a busy time of year for many people.  I can even see it with you other bloggers out there.  People have parties to attend, vacations to go on, and friends to visit, and I don't blame them in the slightest.  My particular summer has been more along the lines of friends and family oriented, including recently spending quite a lot of time with a very special woman who happens to be quite a lot more important to me than keeping this blog going.

I haven't spent much time on this hobby in general over the past few months.  Even my favorite part of the hobby (trading) has slowed to a standstill.  That being said, Allen & Ginter is right around the corner.  That means...

I'm holding contests.  Yes plural.  I'm going to get right to it because people are going to want to know what they can possibly win.  Simply put, if you are lucky enough to win one of these contests over the next couple weeks you will get to choose your prize from the following:

  • complete base set of 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter
  • complete base set minus SP's of 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter
  • A selected 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter relic/auto (by you) from those I pull (there will be a VERY minor number of disqualifications, but you'll get to see the full list before choosing this option)
  • All the 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter base baseball box toppers I pull
  • Your choice of 20 A&G back minis
  • A copy of every duplicate I pull from the 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter The Numbers Game set (on average this should be about 3/4 of the set)
  • Your choice of 30 duplicate inserts (mini or regular sized, minis count as 2)

I would note that these are all limited by who ends up wanting what.  Obviously, I am only going to have one extra set of SP's, so that first prize can only be had by one person.  Last year, I had a drawing to see who would get to pick first if I remember correctly.  Regardless, everyone should come away happy.




Your first avenue to entry is simple.  Simply comment on this post!  Last year I required one to pimp this contest.  There's no need for that this year, but feel free if you so choose!  Any help is appreciated.

All commenteers will be thrown bodily into a random drawing.  Last one standing will get a prize of their choice (see above).
