Shawn (sasports) and I have decided to get together and host a series of contests and giveaways.
We appreciate every member on this site and this is a simple attempt to give something back.

Let's get it started with this.

We want to see a card (scan or photo) of the best player in any sport born in 1961.
The winner will receive this card!

2007 Topps Allen and Ginter Mini Snakes 4 King Cobra $8.00 $20.00 (Beckett OPG)
The first 17 people are eligible. Shawn is going to pick a number 1-17 randomly out of his nasty combat helmet to pick the eventual winner.

Lets play!
Collect Hard!,

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!


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!
