As some of you know, I tried to sell some mystery packs a while back and that sort of didn't pan out, and it think it stems from poor marketing on my part. So, I'm going to try again, this time with a very nice twist.

So, I'm selling some mystery packs. There are two kinds of packs. You can either buy a pack that guarantees a game-used card or autograph card, or a pack that guarantees a numbered insert card.

The game-used/auto packs will sell for $5 a piece and the insert packs will sell for $3 a piece. I have many of both available and there will be some nice cards inserted into the packs. Each pack will also come with several base cards and un-numbered inserts from the sport that you pick. I have packs available for the following sports:

Baseball
Basketball
Football
Golf (limited number)

I have a ton of base and insert cards sitting around that I just want to clear out, so I won't be holding back much.

Now here's the exciting twist. Each game-used auto pack will come with two card-stock entry forms. If you fill out the form, and mail it back to me, you will be entered into a drawing for a free Nolan Ryan autographed card. So, if you purchase a gu/auto pack, you'll not only get whatever gu/auto card that comes with it, you'll also get two entries into the drawing for the Nolan Ryan autographed card. Each of the numbered insert packs will include one entry into the drawing.

There is a catch. I will only draw for the Nolan Ryan card if I sell at minimum 30 packs. The drawing will be held on May 30, 2007, two months from today. If I sell less than 30 packs, don't worry, you're entries will not be cancelled. I will hold a drawing, but not for the Nolan Ryan autographed card. I have a number of nice cards that I can give away, but the Nolan Ryan card is very nice and I can't afford to give it away if I do not sell enough packs.

If you want to order a pack, follow these simple instructions:

1. Send me a private message with your name, the type of pack you want to order (gu/auto or insert), how many packs you want of each, and how you intend to pay for the packs. I accept pay pal, cash, and money orders. Your pack(s) will be shipped as soon as payment is received.

2. Once you receive your packs, open them up and gasp at how awesome the cards are you are receiving.

3. After opening them, fill out the entry form(s) and return them to me ASAP. If they are not received by the drawing date, they are not eligible for the drawing. Each form must have your name, address, and TCC member name on it.

4. Order more packs or wait for the drawing.

On May 30, as long as nothing horrible happens, I will hold the drawing live on TCC. After the first pack is bought and paid for, I'll post a thread where people can post what cards they are getting in the packs and you can discuss that and the up-coming drawing.

If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.

Here's a picture of the Nolan Ryan Autographed Card. It's from 2003 Donruss Signature and it's limited to 75 copies (although it's not numbered on the card). It books for $150.

I only have a few bolf packs. If you by an insert pack I have a number of Tiger cards and some other top golfers. About the best I can do on the GU/Auto packs is Fred Couples. But, you'd get two entries into the Nolan Ryan card drawing.

Well, I've sold about 16 packs right now, they will all go out Monday. So, I'll post a thread next week sometime so people can post their pulls from the mystery packs. Progress is good, I need to sell 14 more packs between now and the deadline and I'll draw for the Nolan Ryan.

So, PM me if you want to purchase any packs.

I have a lot of different cards. I have some star players and some not so star players. It's just like buying a real pack, except you're guaranteed something and you get two chances to win a Nolan Ryan autographed card that books $150.
