Folks, I apologize for letting this thread
lie dormant as long as it has, but will try
to make that right starting now!

This contest will require the contestants
to come up with the best, most original and
interesting idea for the next contest in this
thread.

Here are the rules:

The contest idea will be posted in this thread.

Must have a concise, well-written set of rules
and judgement criteria (i.e., judged by the
originator of the contest, random.org or a third
party judge(s), etc.).

Unlike most of the contests that Shawn and I
have hosted here, this one is gonna be judged
in a very undemocratic fashion.

Shawn (sasports) and I will be the only judges
involved in picking a winner.

The criteria we will focus on are these:

Originality, conceived member interest,
involvement, and accessibility to any and all
members.

Oh, I almost forgot the prize!

How about 25 lbs. of Baseball cards?

There will be a lot of commons but I will also
include some surprises in the batch. There will
be the occasional autograph, game-used, vintage
and inserts to make the task worth your while.

I'm gonna let this run for 10 days. Deadline for
entries is Monday, April 25 12:00 pm EST.

Hope y'all enjoy and let's get some entries
in here.

With the Nba playoffs just about to get started, I think it would be fun to do a contest revolving around that. I realize with the time table you set for this to go, we wouldnt be able to include the first round. So... Starting in the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs, the contest would look like this:

Rules:
-You must correctly guess the winner of each series(East and West)
-You get extra points for correctly guessing how many games they win it in
Scoring goes as follows
-Guess correct # of games it takes team to win series =2 points, 1 game away= 1 point.

So for each playoff series you could earn up to 3 points.

EXAMPLE: If I picked the Pacers to beat the Bulls in 6 games, and they beat the bulls in 7 games, I would get 1 point for correctly picking the Pacers, and 1 for being only one game away. If the Pacers swept the bulls, I would only get 1 point because it was more than 1 game away.

Person with the most points at the end wins. 2nd round-NBA finals.

Hope this makes sense.

Joe

This might be a hard one...which could make it a good contest.

You need to post a pic , or a link to a pic of a sports card bearing the same name of the person posting. I.E - My name is Kyle Smith , so i would have to search high and low to find a card from any sport with that name on it. You dont have to own the card personally just as long as it actually exsists.
Since there technically cant be a "best card" as they are just matching members names to a trading card we would have to random.org all the entrants to determine a winner.



Any help with the below PC's PM me and will work something out.

Ok, here is my idea........and i call it TCC's Spellcheck biggrin.gif

Using ONLY cards with an athlete/star (which will eliminate using "letter" cards) you spell out a word. Make it a word of your favorite team, player, color, hobby, basically anything you can think of and be creative.
However; the idea is to jumble up the cards/letters and only give us a clue and word count in order to try and figure out the word.

Rules:
-You must form a word ONLY utilizing the first letter of the first OR last name
-It must be a card from your collection

Here is an example:

My clue is - this is my LEAST favorite animal. (three letters)

I show three cards of baseball players Jim Thome, Alex Rodriquez, and Armani Rodriquez. JTARAR.......and after using the letters to try and form a three letter word you come up with......RAT!!!!

This allows people of every kind of collecting interest to participate and people can really get creative.

Let's say you want to put my favorite color is purple.....you can use players names that spell out purple but ALSO show them in PURPLE uniforms.

or

I like girls with long hair. You can show players that spell out long hair AND who also have long hair themselves. laugh.gif laugh.gif

This contest will also open up the possibility for multiple prizes........most creative word, hardest word to figure out, most disgusting word, etc.

Thanks,
Charles

This one is definitely original, I like it!

I may want to enter, could I do the Gettysburg Address?

Only half-kidding, that would be a cool one to pull
off.

Thanks for the entry.

laugh.gif That would be a cool, hard, and interesting word. You could select people who were born in that state and have a beard like Abe Lincoln tongue.gif

I was thinking about using the word Sooners and then showing players from the GREATEST COLLEGIATE PROGRAM IN THE NCAA (my clue) biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I've had this idea for a while but just wasn't sure if it would be hard enough. It would be a contest revolving around the picture in my avatar. I have a series of questions I would ask about the two people pictured. Whoever gets them all wins. Since this would be so specific I guess the difficulty of the contest would depend on how recognizable these people are.

Normally trivia is no contest because you can just google the answers but you might not be able to do that in this case.


I collect rookie cards. Please check my list to see if you have anything I need.

I am looking for Don Mattingly cards that I don't have. Base, Inserts, Patches, maybe GU or Autos.

Contest:
Pick a high selling card on Ebay, and you have to make the contestants guess what the final price will end up. I like these types of contests
-Contestants won't be able to edit the post or there out automatically.
-Have the ending date about 1-2 days before so that it makes it harder and people would have to watch the price changes.
-person closest to the ending price wins!
