CONTEST TIME: Predict the Percentage Of HOF Votes Greg Maddux Gets And Win!!!

Alright guys and girls, welcome to the first contest of the year at ’30-Year Old Cardboard’.

And this one is going to be a blast, I promise!

Early next week, the Hall of Fame is going to announce the results of their ballot for the Class of 2014.  And while nothing is an absolute certainty, it is a very safe bet that Greg Maddux will be elected to Cooperstown on his first ballot.

Maddux, considered the finest pitcher of his era, has the credentials to match many of the sport’s greatest pitchers and he deserves to be selected as the ‘lead player’ to be enshrined into the class of 2014.

But, how many votes will he get?  What percentage of the voters will choose him?

Care to guess?  I hope so, because that is what this contest is all about – Predict the Percentage of HOF Votes Greg Maddux Gets And Win!!!

To enter this contest, submit your number into the comments section of this post.  All entries must contain a decimal, so if you think is going to get 100% of the vote, you must submit 100.0 as your number.  And if you think he is going to nab 95.5% of the vote, you must submit 95.5.  It’s that simple.  Also, once a number is chosen, it cannot be taken again so choose wisely and quickly.

The person whose number is closest to Maddux’s actual tally, without going over, will win.

The prize?

Greg Maddux baseball cards, of course!!  Have a look:
