And The Winner Of The ‘Predict The All-Star Game MVP’ Contest Is…

ME!!!

Since nobody selected Melky Cabrera as their top choice for the MVP Award from last night’s All-Star game, the cards will stay in my collection for now.

I will certainly work on developing a few more contests over the second half of the season with these cards as the prize so come back often for a second chance.

Thanks to all that played.  And congratulations to the National League as they put an old fashioned butt-whipping on the American League.

Here is one more look at the prize that was up for grabs:

I will make them available again in the near future.

Have a nice day.  🙂

Contest Time: Predict The All-Star Game MVP, Win A 5 Packs Of Baseball Cards!!!

Contest Time: Predict The All-Star Game MVP, Win A 5 Packs Of Baseball Cards!!!

The name of this contest says it all!!!
For this contest, I will be asking the readers to choose a player slated to play in the All-star game that they feel will win the game’s Most Valuable Player award.  It’s really just that simple.

The rules are easy.  Each reader gets to select one player on either the American League roster to National League roster.  Once a player has been selected they cannot be chosen again.  I will close the selections at 11:59 on Sunday night so I can publish a final list of the readers participating in this contest and the player they’re pulling for prior to the start of the game Tuesday evening.

Sound like fun?  Then get going and pick your guy.  All you have to do is review the rosters and submit your name and your player’s name into the comments section of this post.

That’s it – I told you it would be easy!!!

And the winner of this contest will get this:

Oh yeah, Baby!!!   5 packs of 2011 Topps Series 2 baseball cards!!!  With tons of potential inside, it will surely be fun to rip through these bad boys.

So get going.  Select your pick and leave it in the comments section of this post.

From there, all you have to do is and sit back and enjoy the 2011 All-Star game!!!

Thanks for playing.

Contest Winner – Brian McCann & ?????

Contest Winner – Brian McCann & ?????

Well, as you may know by now, nobody selected Brian McCann as their choice for the All-star game MVP.

So, what I can do is divide the 36 packs from the box into the 23 contest participants and mail each of you 11 cards, or I can hold another contest.  🙂

My plan is to run one of my ‘MVP For A Day’ contests within the next two weeks.  The prize will be the same, and this time there will be a guaranteed winner.  I need to review the MLB schedule to pick a day, but please come back and visit often as I should be able to get this new contest up and running fairly quickly.

Congratulations to Brian McCann!!!
