Over the past six months I have met, conversed, and traded with dozens upon dozens of fellow collectors. There has been great conversation and even more generosity. It’s time to pay it forward.
Over the next week, I will be offering up one flat rate box filled with baseball collectibles. The box will be randomly given away next Sunday July 8.
How do you enter? Simply follow my Twitter account (@onemillioncubs) and retweet my pinned tweet (see below). On July 8, I will compile on followers of the @onemillioncubs twitter account that retweeted the pinned tweet (note: there will be multiple tweets throughout the week – only retweets of the initial tweet that will be pinned qualify).
What’s in the box? Great question. It’s filled with random collectibles that do not fit into my collection, so it’s a great way to pay it forward. First up is a Baseball Cards magazine from December 1987 featuring Kirby Puckett on the cover.
The “free cards” are still intact.
Another magazine in the box will be a Baseball Today from 1988. This issue features Kirk Gibson and Juan Samuel on the cover.
A Mark McGwire Oakland Athletics starting lineup (still in the package) is also in the giveaway box.
Starting lineups were cool in the late 1980’s and early 1980’s. Today, it’s all about the bobblehead. My giveaway box has you covered. It’s a Corey Hart Milwaukee Brewers bobblehead from 2013.
An unopened (okay, it’s been opened and later shrink wrapped – but the packs haven’t been opened) box of 1990 Topps Yearbook stickers.
And some unopened packs. There are 10 packs total including five packs of oddball Sunoco Dream Team cards. The other packs are: 1988 Donruss, 1989 Topps, 1989 Score, 1991 Donruss, and 1991 Ultra.
Complete sets? Covered that, too. How about a 2015 Bowman Draft paper base set. This set is loaded with cards from Aaron Judge, Andrew Benintendi, Ian Happ, Walker Buehler, Alex Reyes, Rafael Devers, Scott Kingery, Amed Rosario, and Albert Almora.
We need to give away some singles. Both old and new. First, a 1986 Topps Traded Barry Bonds XRC.
A 2018 Bowman paper base Miguel Andujar rookie card.
OHTANI. He’s here, too. A 2018 Bowman paper Shohei Ohtani rookie card.
And the future: a 2018 Bowman Chrome Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Finally, supplies. Two packs (100 count) of brand new penny sleeves.
Hopefully I’ve put together a package that will fit the needs of a winning collector out there. Remember, to enter you just need to be a follower of the @onemillioncubs Twitter account and retweet the pinned tweet. That’s it. Next Sunday will randomly select the winner. Good luck!
