The holidays are my favorite time of the year. This year has been a lot of fun collecting as many Chicago Cubs baseball cards as I can via buying and trading. Many collectors have been very generous and given me some great deals in my journey to collect one million Cubs cards.
So, I have been paying it forward with giveaways on Twitter and Facebook. The best is yet to come with #MerryCardsmas kicking off Thanksgiving Night. #MerryCardsmas will be a celebration of the hobby throughout the holiday season. From Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve I will be doing daily giveaways on Twitter.
Today I reached the 3,000 follower mark and gave away a 2018 Topps Chrome Update Gleyber Torres rookie card to the 3,000th follower. To show appreciation for my existing base of followers, I announced a bonus giveaway.
For the next (approximately) 30 hours, you can enter to win a three-card lot of 2018 Topps Update Chrome rookies of the finalists for American League Rookie of the Year: Shohei Ohtani, Gleyber Torres, and Miguel Andujar.
And how do you enter? This post is the first step. Below is one of my favorite Cubs cards from an iconic set. It’s Chico Walker from the 1987 Topps set.
Simply reply to my pinned post on Twitter with, “Chico Walker.”
That’s it. The contest will end around 10 p.m. central on Wednesday November 7. A random winner that replied to that tweet with, “Chico Walker,” will win the three-card lot of Chrome Update rookies.
