UPDATE !!!! Contest Time At ’30-Year Old Cardboard’

It looks like several readers missed my only rule for this contest:

Each team can only be selected one time – so we can have just 30 contestants. 

We have an overabundance of people that picked the same teams.  I am going to recap the picks below, and if you were the second or third or fourth person to pick a team that had already been selected you may choose from the remaining teams. 

Teams have been handed out in the order that they were chosen.  Here we go:

Yankees – Rod

Angels – Night Owl

Phillies – Matt R

Cardinals – Burnseez

Indians – Rico

Cubs – Jeremy

Red Sox – Adam E.

Rays – BozemanBreaker

Brewers – Brian

Mets – Old School Breaks

Dodgers – Albuqwirke

Twins – Thrylos98

Braves – Jim

Marlins – Wicked Ortega

Tigers – Jennifer

Royals – Jessica

16 teams have been chosen, which means that 14 remain.  Ben, Gerad, Andrew, Mark, Kevin, RWH, Steve, and FishCrazy feel free to chose another team if you’d like.



OK, with the 2009 baseball season just days away I thought it was time to initiate my first contest of the season.

This one should be a breeze – ‘Pick the first team to win 12 games’

It’s that simple.  Submit your choice into the comments section of this post.  Each team can only be selected one time – so we can have just 30 contestants.  If 2 teams happen to reach the 12-win goal on the same night than each of the readers that selected those teams will be declared as winners.

Who are you going to choose?  Your favorite team?  Or are you going to study the MLB schedules to see who has the easiest raod to 12 wins??  Either way, make sure that your selections are in by Noon on Sunday, April 5th to make your selections count!!!

What’s up for grabs you ask?  Oh, I don’t know…  How about your choice of any one of these beautifully autographed baseball cards that I have obtained through the mail over the last few months???


Are you ready to play????  Submit your pick now!!!

  30. Doesn’t look like anyone’s picked the DBacks. I’ll go with AZ!


  31. no thanks. good luck to everyone

  32. Is it too late for me to grab the Astros?

  33. Mariners

  35. I really wanted to pick the Mariners, but I am going to go for the Oakland Athletics. I think they have a great team, and yes their pitching is young, but I think there will be some cushion of run support with the Giambino hitting next to Happy Hollidays.
