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

hmm what is the shortest amount of time someone has been "tossed over the ropes"? I think I can beat that time. Speaking of time.How much time will each participant be given to post?

Why not put me in coach, I'll take my lickings in "da RUMBLE" - I might have a little problem making a quick trade if that one is reaquired I'm rusty in that department.

i think we should let lew in!

I also think we should stipulate no duplicate players allowed unless the category is a specific player!

An oldie but a goodie, Kirk Gibson RC

I knew there would be tough decisions. I have a few options here. I could have gone with my Name Sake Kirk Gibson skipper of the D-Backs, but I didn't think 1983 Donruss, 1983 Topps or 1986 Topps would cut it with the competition.

Then I thought about going with my Homie skipper Davy Johnson, Nationals my first reaction was a chromie thing I've got from a couple of years ago of a "Fans Favorite" but it is a Modern REPRO w/ Chrome added of his 1972 Topps (the card is NOT from his playing years, but the image of the card it reproduces is). So that wouldn't work plus I'm not sure if I still have it another technicality, the only card from his playing days I found (I actually have doubles of which I didn't realize) was his 1975 Topps. I was looking for an earlier card of his but sadly I couldn't find one. I almost went with the better of the two '75s then I thought this is more a popularity contest than my personal likes contest so...

I am going with the Skipper of the RED SOX Bobby Valentine. Here be his 1972 Topps card:

(I removed the image for quoting.)

I almost went with Kirk my namesake, but I don't have his RC (which would probably be the best card to go with for him) some of my reasoning is in my previous post up there. Plus now it would have been two people posting the same player. sad.gif
