No Pictures for You!

One of the main reasons I started this blog was that I was excited about the prospect of holding contests to give away some of my cards. I didn't think it would be so hard to do. Not the contest part. The giving away cards part.

I know this blog has only been around for a month, and I know I only have a few readers so far. But unless the web bots I keep hearing about are more prevalent than I thought, the stats show me that there are more than two of you out there reading. Maybe you're just looking at the pretty pictures. Can't blame you for that. But I want you to read this so you know that you've been missing out on an opportunity for...


See that neat little graphic over on the right? If you click on that, you'll be taken to the post that you should have read in the first place if you're the type of person who enjoys receiving free baseball cards in the mail. I can only assume that (unless you're my wife, who's forced to read this occasionally) you're interested in baseball cards if you're coming to this blog.

I know the question in this contest is a bit esoteric. But, as a baseball fan, I think it's kind of a fun little exercise. Nick of Dime Boxes and Bo of Baseball Cards Come to Life thought it was worth a shot. In fact, Bo was the only person to respond to my offer of a no-stings-attached PWE earlier. It took ten days for anyone to respond to that one. Weird.

Like I said, I plan to keep having contests. They will get more interesting. Perhaps involving a little less work on your part. The bottom line is that they will be opportunities for free cards. But it's only gonna happen if people actually show some interest. So click on the Surreal Seven graphic over there on the right (or the subtle link I just provided for you) and make your guesses before midnight on Friday. If you're reading this, I'm talking to you.

We will return you to your regularly scheduled pictures shortly. Thanks for reading.
