Random Act of Cardness Contest number 1

It seems that contests on blogs attract attention, or at least get a few sure comments. People like it when you give away stuff even if it is an old piece of cardboard with some ink or maybe paint on it, maybe with a piece of cloth glued into it or a splinter of wood attached. So I thought I'd try my hand at one here on my blog hopefully it will attract some more readership. I have done a few contests over at TCC that I have titled "Random Acts of Cardness" they range from the simple "first one to respond" to a random trivia question to "guess the number" to the slightly more difficult "guess what?' type that requires a little thinking.

This will be a random drawing contest open to people who comment to this post. Just simply post a comment with your favorite MLB baseball and/or NFL football team to be eligible. The contest ends Midnight Eastern Time Monday/Tuesday 21/22 May 2012. The winner will be chosen at random from the list of entrants via random.org. The lucky winner will receive a batch of cards from their favorite team.

This contest is open to residents of the US and Canada ONLY. Sorry sending mail to other countries tends to be a little more expensive, takes a long time (longer than most people's patience) and package tracking can't be confirmed.
