My first contest...In honor of his memory, a FREE Duke Snider auto

Hey guys and gals.  Finally gonna have my first free giveaway contest.  Join my blog, make a comment on this post, and be in the running to win a 2008 Donruss Threads Century Legends #8 Duke Snider TTM autographed baseball card.  Contest will end in two weeks on March 15th when I will randomally pick a winner.  So all you fellow bloggers and readers please pass this around.

Edwin Donald "Duke" Snider (September 19, 1926 – February 27, 2011), nicknamed "The Silver Fox" and "The Duke of Flatbush", was a Major League Baseball center fielder and left-handed batter who played for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers (1947–62), New York Mets (1963), and San Francisco Giants (1964).  Snider was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1980.  Rest in peace!

Hey, sweet contest! I've been reading/watching all your stuff for a while now and I hope I can win this contest!

Scott Crawford said...

Please don't enter me in your contest (It's an awesome card, but I've got a Duke auto and would rather the card go to someone who doesn't without running a second contest on my site to get it there), but this is a great thing you're doing here, and I wanted to give you props for it, as well as props for using such a fantastic site theme. I threw you a plug on my site, following now, and I'll eventually look through your want and trade lists, as I do with everyone else's.

To the rest of you, good luck!

The Lost Collector said...

Oh my goodness, I went to make sure I entered, and my comment read, "I'm not a follower." What a d-bag I am...I clearly meant "now a follower." I should be disqualified. Sorry about the typo!
