Ladies and gentlemen....Trading Card Central and Beanschat Entertainment are proud to present....MARCH MAYHEM!! The return of TCC Fights! After a long lull, we will be running a 10 round match over the month of March. At stake is your pride and a small prize package from myself (don't expect any Manning Autos!)

I will be looking for up to 10 competitors....once the slots are filled, we will begin the match.

The match will consists of 10 rounds in which you must find cards that match the rounds requirements and submit them. Each round will be graded with the top vote getting 3 points, and 2nd and third getting 1 each! Votes will be tallied and the winner will have the highest total at the conclusion.

This will include a special over the top rope feature. If you fall 10 points behind the leader, you have been expelled from the ring, over the top rope!

You may submit your participation in this thread!

For those of you unfamiliar with this concept and unsure of whether you would have the firepower to particpate (first, it's all about fun), some categories we have used in the past include...

Best GU of a HOFer
favorite card of a guy with sideburns
best card from a player with the same birthday
Complete a trade the fastest
Most illegible auto

Let's get ready to rumble!!

Challenge #1!

Your "best" card of a current "major league" manager from his or her playing days. By "major league" I mean head coach at the highest level of that sport. No minor league, no arena ball, no d level, no NCAA. And remember it has to be a card of them from their playing days!

Challenge #2!

Best card of a HOFer that was inducted with the sports last class!

Challenge #3

Most colors in a patch (es) (no manufactured patches allowed)!

Challenge #4

A card of someone who has played in the NCAA March Madness

Challenge #5

Your favorite card and a limerick explaining why.

Challenge #6

Best card of a player who spent his entire career with one team.

Challenge #7

Your favorite low grade card.

Challenge #8

Opening Day Gauntlet

Challenge #9 Non sports gauntlet

Current score:
aceecards 25
Lew47 18
Captkirk42 14
bajmurray 3 (eliminated)
WestCoastSkinsfan 3 (eliminated)
roadrunner1964 2 (eliminated)
