Time To Play ’30-Year Old Cardboards’ 4th Annual ‘Opening Day Contest’!!!

Time To Play ’30-Year Old Cardboards’ 4th Annual ‘Opening Day Contest’!!!

As we all eagerly wait for the 2013 baseball season to begin, I want to start it off right.

And one way to accomplish that is to host a contest!!!  This is the fourth straight season in which I am hosting an ‘Opening Day Contest’.

Here is how it will work:

There are 12 games scheduled on Opening Day, April 1.  You can review the schedule, and see the starting pitchers by clicking here.  To win this contest, you need to guess how many total strikeouts will be thrown in these 12 games.  To enter, simply leave a comment on this post with your pick.  Once a number is taken, it cannot be used again.  The person who gets the closest, without going over, to the actual number of strikeouts tossed wins!!!

Opening Days brings out the sport’s top pitchers.  From Clayton Kershaw to King Felix to Justin Verlander to CC Sabathia – there will be a ton of K’s.  So, do your homework and make your selections now!!!

The winner of my ‘Opening Day Contest’ will win this:


That’s right – 2 jumbo packs of 2013 Topps Opening Day baseball cards!!

Sound good??  Wanna play??

Then do your homework and make your picks.  All selections must be made by 9PM EST on Sunday night.  I will post a list of the players and their picks on Monday morning.

Good luck everyone!!!
