YOUNG BLEED

On a night in which pitching ruled, and with a guess of 217 strikeouts, YOUNG BLEED was just 1 strikeout off the actual number of 218.   That’s some pretty solid guess work right there!!!

Congratulations to YOUNG BLEED!!!

Here is one more look at the prize:

‘Opening Day Contest’ WINNERS!!!

‘Opening Day Contest’ WINNERS!!!

While ‘Opening Day’ may not have been as action packed as we all may have desired, it certainly was full of some great baseball – and unreal pitching, too!!!

But let’s get down to what matters most – the winners of my ‘Opening Day Contest’.

There were 6 home runs hit on Opening Day, so the player with the closest number of home runs hit was Stephen, who selected 7.  Stephen wins this great looking Game-Used Bat Card of Billy Williams.

And the pitchers were very sharp today.  In fact, there were 117 strikeouts during all of the day’s action.  So, with the prediction of 106, Stephen wins this great Manufactured Patch Card of Jim Palmer.

Congratulations to both Stephen and Stephen.  Hey, wait a minute – Did Stephen win both prizes??  Why, Yes He Did!!!

Congratulations, Stephen!!!

Thanks to everyone who played in this year’s ‘Opening Day Contest’.  Please stay tuned as my next contest is just a week or so away – and it will be a doozie, trust me!!!

I hope you all enjoyed Opening Day.  But more than that, I hope my Marlins enjoy their day off on Friday – Let’s get some hits fellas!!!

30-Year Old Cardboard’s 2012 ‘OPENING DAY CONTEST’!!!!

30-Year Old Cardboard’s 2012 ‘OPENING DAY CONTEST’!!!!

I’m not sure what the people who create baseball’s schedule were thinking, but the 2012 calendar is a little rough to look at – especially the first few days…

So, I am officially calling April 5th the ‘Opening Day’ of the 2012 season.

And with that announcement, I am bringing you a contest that you are going to want to get in on – Trust Me.

One, or possibly even both, of these cards can be yours if you win!!!

Here is how the contest will work.

First, you should review the schedule for Opening Day on April 5th – here is a link.

Ok, now on to the contest…

You will have to supply me with two numbers – (1) is the number of home runs that you predict will be hit on Opening Day and (2) is the number of strikeouts that you predict will be recorded on Opening Day.

Please keep your selections in this format – (X) HRs,( X) Ks so I know which number you have selected for each category.

If you are the player that comes the closest to predicting the correct number of Home Runs hit on April 5, without going over, you will win this:

And if you are the player that comes the closest to correctly predicting the number of strikeouts recorded on April 5, without going over, you will win this: 

Up for grabs are some great relic cards featuring Hall of Famers Billy Williams and Jim Palmer.

Maybe you will win one of them.  Or, if you are really, really on with your predictions, you can win BOTH!!!!

So, get going and make your predictions.  Simply leave a comment on this post telling me how many home runs and how many strikeouts you predict will occur on Opening Day.

I will take all picks up until midnight of April 4.

Good Luck to everyone and ‘Thanks for playing’!!!!
