Within the blogosphere I used to hold my fair share of contests and also enter contests whenever I could find them. It seems like Twitter is great place to get in on the contest game, but ever since my collection focus has narrowed so has my desire to participate in giveaways and the like. Anymore, I'm really picky about the contest I enter.
John, from Johnny's Trading Spot, held an easy contest for his blogaversary and I decided to toss my name into the fray. John and I have a really good trading history and I know he would send something that would make me smile. I'm embarrassed to say I'm just now getting to it., but he sent me this prize package during the second week of August. Busy is as busy does.
The package starts off with a bang!
elementary school student who will love the extra Jason Hammel sticker. He's going to go crazy!
Mark Prior has been coming up in conversation and cardboard pretty frequently for me as of late.
Topps Big League is one of my favorites and I love the different subsets they have in the main set. I'm glad "Bricks & Ivy" made the cut.
Dave & Adam's has a sale right now on 2019 Topps Big League for $23 a hobby box... I'm so very tempted to buy a couple boxes and build the set.
Talent Pipeline is a fun concept for an insert card, especially with MLB Pipeline being such a big thing. I'm holding my breath that one of the two pitching prospects can make a name for themselves.
1991 Panini Stickers! The Maddux is new to me as is the Sandberg in the top center.
933 unique cards and counting!
Here are my favorite two cards from the prize package.
Thanks for such an amazing prize package, John!
