Time for My First Contest!

Geez, what a crappy week I've had.  The boss is working us like dogs, the Dolphins lost to the short-handed Browns, Kansas State stopped the Hurricanes one foot short of a victory, and the Braves are trying to slump their way out of a playoff spot that they had pretty much "locked up" less than 30 days ago.  Sorry for the rant, but I'm tired and needed to do a little online venting.  Anyways, on to the point.

I have seen many, many contests on the net by all the wonderful card bloggers out there and I figure it is about time for me to hold a contest of my own.

On November 6th 2011, The Card Hobbyist blog will be celebrating it's first birthday.  To give thanks to all of the readers and bloggers out there, I present you with my very first contest.


Contest Details
  • Throughout the month of October every time you comment on a post, I will give you one entry into the contest. All you have to do is comment on an October post. Easy.
  • Only one entry per person per blog post (Not including this post, read below)
  • Here's the catch:  You have exactly 48 hours to comment on post after it's published.  Comments left on a post after the 48 hour window closes will not earn entries.
  • The cards I will be giving away will include some vintage, game-used, rookies, inserts, short prints, parallels, and autos (nothing really earth shattering, but free cards for you nonetheless)
  • On November 6th, every card will be randomly given to a random entry using random.com (yes, I do love the randomness of it all)
  • You can win multiple cards.

Early Entry
Now here's your chance to get some early entries in the contest.  If you comment on this post, you will earn 1 entry and if you shamelessly pimp my contest on your blog I will give you another 2 entries.  If you do pimp the contest, don't forget to link your post with your comments. You have till Friday, September 30th to get your early entries in so get to pimping. Good luck!

  2. Nice, glad to get an early entry. I'm not near a computer, but I'll try and plug at some point.

    Thanks Robert for the referral. I actually hadn't stumbled upon this blog yet, so it's nice to add another to the reading list.
