Last reminder to take a few minutes and enter my 5th Annual World Series contest. You have until 8pm AKST/ Midnight EST Friday I'll have an official entry post Saturday.
GO HERE TO ENTER
Also I just did a quick look at the entries so far and we had two brave souls that picked wild card playoff teams before the games and those teams lost. So because I love moxy and you could have waited till last night or today to make a pick after the games were finished, if you picked one of the Wildcard losing teams I'll allow you to try again. Just reply to your previous pick and amend it.
You have until 8pm Alaska time, that's midnight on the East Coast, to enter. It's looking like were going to have a good turn out and I'm planning on digging out prizes this weekend.

So are we going to mix the contest up for the 5th Annual offering? Nope. This is and always will be almost the easiest contest on the web and all I want you to tell me is who's going to win?
Of course some of you might pick the same team so we need a few tie breakers. So I also want you to tell me who the opponent will be, how many games in the series, and how many total home runs will be scored, both teams.
So your entry should look something like this.
Cubs over Yankees, 7 games, 9 home runs.
The tie breakers are ranked in that order, opponent, games, HRs.
So what are you playing for? Well I'm still trying to figure that out and pull stuff out. To make matters worse the next two weeks are going to be very busy for me. So trust me that I'll put together a nice prize package and the winner will also get some cards of their favorite team and/or players.
Let's not forget, there will also be a door prize just for signing up. I'll enter all the entries into Random.org and randomize the list 3 times. Person at the top gets the prize. Plus like always if you promote this contest on your blog or other social media you'll get an extra entry into the door prize drawing. Just leave a link to the pimp so I know you did it.
I would also like to ask if you sign up for the contest you have some way of me getting in contact with you. ie an email attached to you profile. Believe it or not I've had prizes go unclaimed before.
Alright here are you choices.
Toronto Blue Jays
Kansas City Royals
New York Yankees
New York Mets
St. Louis Cardinals
I'll be posting reminders all week. Alright good luck and thanks for playing.

So regular season play is done on October 4th, the Wildcard games will be played on the 6th and 7th and the Divisional Series will start on the 8th and 9th. So that means like usual we don't have a lot of time for entries. Right now the National League picture is pretty much set, but we still have some play in the American League. That being said if the playoff picture solidifies before the end of the season I'll open the contest up early, and if it goes down to the wire again, which is always fun, I'll leave the contest entry period open till after the Wildcard games.
The contest will be just like years past. All I want you to do is tell me who's going to win the World Series. And like always we need a few tie breakers so I also want you to tell me who the opponent was, total games in the series and total number of home runs hit, by both teams.
Not too hard right?
I know your saying "CB that's great and super easy, but what the heck can I win?"
I'm still working on it. But rest assured that I'll dig though my bag of goodies and come up with some great stuff. And like year's past I'll have a door prize just for entering with bonus entry for promoting the contest on your blog or other social media account, only one extra entry though.
Alright mark your calendars we've only got a week to go!!!

Howdy. Yep I'm still here, sort of. I've been busy, work, family, house, etc, etc. The last thing I've been wanting to do is blog. I suppose that'll happen after 6 years or so. Anyways Allen and Ginter has come out and other products as well, but A and G is one of my most looked forward too products that and Series 1 Topps Baseball. I'll be honest as much as I was looking forward to Allen and Ginter I just can't get that into it this year. Mostly likely the lack of funds to put forth the effort. In the end I'll probably just pick up the set from eBay eventually. That doesn't mean I haven't broken a few packs and been checking the set out.
One card popped out at me when I saw it. The history of the Berlin Wall and my own personal history intersect. I'm an army brat and my father's last duty station was Berlin. The Wall fell November 9, 1989 and I arrived in Berlin December 9, a month to the day of the fall. I was in the city for that first New Year's Eve, which was crazy and I was in Germany for reunification in October of 1990. As a matter of fact the apartment complex we lived in was only about a quarter of a mile from a section of the wall and I spent many afternoons chipping away at it. My father sent a large chunk to my grandmother who donated it to our hometown library. I ended up spending about 3 years over in Berlin and graduated from the DoDD Berlin American High School. And I have to say I have no idea what Berlin is like now, but it was a pretty awesome city back then and great time in my life.
