We have a WINNER
Brandon was the first to get it. A PM will go out later today. I'm just up right now because I couldn't sleep. UGH.

Micheal nice guess on the AFC/NFC thing I thought that at first a few years back till I noticed some AFC and NFC players with the same colors.

Chip close but no cigar (OK since you were only behind Brandon by a few minutes I may send something your way).

CONGRATS BRANDON!
SinatraKing

You are welcome, glad you like them. Even though I'm a Rams fan, I am so-so on cards of players in their College Uniforms. Some I keep some I don't.

Got to check what/who I have. I'm pretty sure I have some '08 Topps Rookie Progression Rookies in College Unis. Not sure which box they are in though.

Trying to clean up this thread a bit (to prepare for a new contest):

My 4th Contest was:

OK this will be my 4th contest I've held. I may continue this thread and just forget about individual threads (it gets difficult trying to find them again for reference). For my first 3 contests they were the typical guess this number of the serial number on the limited #d card.

The list of winners from my contests past: List of past winners:

First Contest - skimog (Darren)
2nd - Stlouisrams1600 (Alex)
3rd - Packers247 (Scott)

This contest will be slightly different. First there is no set prize, I will simply send the winner(s) some random cards of their favorite NFL team (or players if I have some). First check out the 1975 Wonder Bread Football set in my bucket. Next notice that there are RED and BLUE borders on these cards. The first person to post the significance of the border colors wins. I also have a few duplicates from this set let me know if you want some of those. I have dupes of 4 different cards (3 of them I have 2 dupes of) This might be a quick contest. Good Luck! UPDATE: CONTEST CLOSED we have a WINNER!

Brandon (SinatraKing)

CaptKirk42's 5th Contest

In celebration of my 150th TCC Transaction, which is coming soon. Contest over, winner is fitchjr1 (See Post #51)

I was going to make the contest guess who would be my 150th trading partner, but that could too easily be anticipated by people watching my number of transactions total. Instead of that The contest is this:

Guess the favorite Baseball and/or Football team of my 150th Partner. Dang I'm making this difficult even on myself laugh.gif The exact combination would be totally difficult to do so whichever of the two teams is guessed correctly first will be the winning entry. This of course will totally get messed up if my 150th transaction is with someone who only does Hockey or just Basketball. UGH. Anyway I won't know the answer to this contest until I have reached my 150th Transaction.

It must also be my 150th completed transaction so if I have a couple of transactions in process it will be the one that makes #150. I will have to keep track of this very carefully I guess (with the help of the Collector Zone Team). If I can't determine exactly which transaction was #150, then I will choose from the guesses for the closest two transactions.

There will actually be two winners for this contest, the person who makes the correct guess first in posting order on this thread and the person who I make my 150th Transaction with.

The Prize will be cards from the winners favorite team, and maybe some unopened packs of something or a retail Blaster or two (product to be determined later)

Please only one vote per sport, you can vote for both sports or just one if you like.

Hopefully I'll be able to handle this correctly it seems to rely on some very unpredictable factors.

Good luck to all of us.

Thank you all who have taken a guess in this my 5th TCC Contest.

I completed Transaction #149. That means my next completed transaction will be the big winner. The guessing has already been closed (I closed it when I had reached #148).

Remember I am rewarding both My 150th partner and the person who came closest in guessing the fave Baseball and Football teams of my 150th Trade Partner. I already have a couple of Blasters waiting for them (One to each), and will send a lot (meaning a group, not necessarily a huge amount) of cards of their favorite teams/players I will try to send some real purty stuff, or at least some stuff of their team. I might add another blaster or two to the pot.

The Winner will be announced shortly after I have COMPLETED my 150th Transaction.

If both teams of trade partner #150 were correctly guessed the person who guessed the correct combination first will be the Grand Prize Winner. Since I thought that might be a bit too complex I said the first person who guessed one of the 2 correct teams will be the winner.

In the event that someone guessed the correct combination, but someone else guessed one of the teams first. The Grand Prize will go to the person who guessed the combination, and the person who guessed one of the teams will be the runner-up.

The 150th Transaction Partner will get something no matter what.

I'll try not to "Bip" anybody. laugh.gif

congrats on nearly 150 transactions
captkirk42
I have two transactions in the works so #150 and #151 are in progress. Whichever one is completed first will be the magic #150. Both are sales from group breaks (and super TCC members), both have been paid for. Now it is a race to see which one arrives first and is completed first. I suspect that the one entered first will end up being the winner, but it might be close. I really really hope that both don't arrive in the mail at the same time. If that is the case then there may be multiple winners. Good for them bad for me. biggrin.gif

...And it is OFFICIAL!
The cards came in for my 150th TRANSACTION
.

They were my cards from the March Low Budget Baseball Group Break hosted by Andrew (sahetu). We broke... what did we break?
2009 Goodwin Champions
2007 UD Masterpieces
2007 UD Elements
2007 Sweet Spot


My teams were Mets, Nationals & Marlins (hmm guess a NL East Theme?) Well I'll mention what I got soon in my TCC Blog (http://www.tradingcardcentral.com/forums/index.php?automodule=blog&blogid=240)

I need to check the answers people submitted and verify Andy's fave teams. Once I've done that I can announce who the winner(s) is(are). They will receive a lot (meaning a group of, not necessarily a large number of) their favorite teams and a 2009 Blaster (brand/series undisclosed at this time it will be a surprise) I will also be sending Andy some of his fave team cards and a 2009 Blaster.

Congratulations Andy for being my 150th Transaction Partner!
