Ok great. If you haven't yet, please send me your address so that I can get your cards out. Also, if you "won" a team package and would like non-Topps cards of that team and they weren't claimed last week, I would be happy to add them to your shipment.

As for the final giveaway...
Today it's vintage. I have 25 vintage cards that I pulled from the Christmas motherload Years and conditions vary, but they are from the 60's, 70's and a little bit of 1980/81. There's a lot of variation from clean and crisp:

to Hall of Famers:

to just plain wonderful:

Most are non-descript very good condition cards of nobodies, with the few exceptions I've shown, a couple other exceptions and this, which is my favorite of the whole bunch and was just so jaw dropping that I had to take it:

I mean, can you discard Frank and Willie? You really can't. That is the only one that is beat up anywhere near that bad, just so you know.

Opening Bid One vintage Detroit Tigers cards. Must be pre-1980, the older the better, and if you have a specific card that you're offering it can only help you to list it. Uncertainty is death for me here. The winner will be the one that offers me either the single best card for the lot, or the best package of cards.

Good luck!

This contest will end at 5:30 tomorrow, with a wrap up post for the whole week of giveaways to follow at 6.

  8. 1939-46 Salutation Exhibit card Hal Newhouser.

    There are several variations of these produced from 39-66, but my understanding is that the "Best Wishes" inscription designates it as being from the 39-46 run. I can send you a scan when I get home if you'd like!
