Ok everyone! I am back and in full action! We are going to get this up and going!

We are going to do a Main Contest with several background contests! The overall contest is going to be announced at a time chosen by me. I will start accepting donations for the final prizes immediatley. Please dont send anythign that you wouldnt want to recieve as a prize! I will be adding some of my own cards to the prize pool. All prizes will be cataloged and separated out into prize lots for a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize package.

PM me if you would like to donate.


Now for the first contest:

I to see your best card that you recieved as a gift for Christmas, Birthday, or just an everyday gift. I want to see a picture of it and want to hear the story behind it! Hint: A one liner probably wont win!


I will pic the top 5 stories and put it to a vote with the rest of the site! The person with the most votes will recieve an Auto/GameUsed/Rookie/Insert lot of there favorite team and players!

The runner up will recieve a lot of their favorite team as well, but it will be smaller with either 1 Auto or Game Used and some rookies and inserts.

I will accomadate your teams and wants to the best of my ability but if I dont have your favorite teams, I will substitute at my descretion.


I will leave this up until I have 10 entries! Lets get the snake back in action!

Well, let's start things off...

user posted image

Unfortunately, I no longer have this card, but this Tomlinson/McFadden dual auto was my first auto of either player, and I received this on Valentine's day of 09. My now fiancee had a box of 2008 SP Authentic waiting for me when we returned home from a date night. This was the hit of the box by far, and I remember that she opened the box with me and pulled this one herself.

One really awesome thing about our relationship is that we really get involved in the likes/hobbies of the other. She knew how much I loved this particular set, so she got a box, and hid it away for a gift-giving day. AND when she pulled the card, she knew enough about card collecting to know why it was such a good card (who the players were, dual auto, the low numbering, etc). Heck, she's even been a guest breaker in our monthly group break from time to time, as long-time members of the break can attest to.

I think you should start it again in the main thread because a lot of people don't read all the way through a post and many people just look for newer things. They might not even know there is a new contest going on. Just a thought. Hope it helps. I like the idea about the story and the best card. As soon as I can scan mine I'll put it up.

I just got off of the phone with Shawn concerning
my desire to fire up this site and this thread with
a new contest.

We'll have the particulars by tomorrow evening.
The prize(s) will be well worth your efforts and I
for one look forward to the responses and breathing
new life into the "Snake" thread.

Stay tuned!

Collect Hard!,
RGBII

This thread is what really got me started on TCC. Myself and Mr. Bostic (RGBII) had a blast making this thread and even more fun giving away all of our freebies. I think it is time to Revive the Snake!

NEW CONTEST!!!!!!

Prize: $10.00 Paypal Gift!

I want to hear about your most memorable moments on TCC! Tell me a short story that pertains to a Gift, Freebie, or any act of kindness from another TCC member!

Pictures are not required for this contest but much appreciated!

Contest will run until I receive 15 entries or until we stop getting entries for an extended period of time (if we only have 10 and not getting entries, etc)

I will pick my favorite 5 stories and post a poll for members to choose the best!

I will start off with a story (obviously not an eligible entry):

After my second deployment to Iraq, when I first found this site, I befriended my co-host of this thread. We started the Nasty Combat Helmet drawings and other funny and memorable contests. Richard and I talked almost daily while I was deployed and he helped me keep my sanity. Many times we would talk about everything BUT sports cards. Knowing what I had been dealing with both in Iraq and back home with my now ex-wife, Richard did something that completely surprised me!

When I returned home I found a GIANT box delivered by UPS sitting in my house from Richard. As I dug through the boxes contents (mostly packing material) I finally found in the very center a very expensive bottle of my favorite adult beverage! I know it may not sound like much to some, but to me it meant the world!
