Cardpocalypse Part Deux

First things first, Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there.

Welcome back for the second week of my blog re-launch contest. This week, we focus on football. Once again, a brief recap of the rules: Nine cards will be posted every week. Each reader can place a claim on one card per week. Cards can be claimed by more than one reader. Claims serve as entry into the contest and must be made with an associated name(no anonymous or unknown). The claim period will be open until Monday night at 8pm EST. At the close of that period, I will enter a list consisting of 'reader-card claimed' pairings into a list randomizer. The reader/card combo at the top of the list after 7 rounds of shuffling will be the winner of the week's Cardpocalypse package. The winnings will include the card they claimed and some cards that will remain a mystery until the package is opened. Packages will be sent on Thursday each week. Readers can only win once during weeks 1-4. Week 5 will have multiple winners(number yet to be determined) and the four previous weekly winners will be eligible to enter again.

Some rookie materials including a Saint(partial inspiration for the title).

More rookies/rookie year cardboard with a little ink mixed in.

An auto, an older school tandem, and a HOF refractor. The combo materials is /99.


  1. Wow, there's a lot of heat in this one. Some tough decisions and great options, but I'll go with Lamar.

  2. That Reggie White is awfully tempting, but not knowing what's gonna be available in the basketball post, makes me not want to try and win this, only to be aced out of a later opportunity.

  3. This is hard. That Reggie White is awesome, KELLY and white dual. I will have to think hard on this lol

    1. You’ve got some time to think about it.

  4. I'll take a shot at the Funchess please and thank you.

  6. I am placing a claim on the Kelly / Thomas dual patch card.

    Thank you for the chance.

  7. Holy heck, I'm thinking there's nothing here that appeals to me and then you throw in a dual swatch of two stars from when I was covering the team. Kelly-Thomas card PLEASE.

  8. I don't collect football on nearly the same level as baseball, but I'm a born and bred Bills fan. It would be silly of me to not at least try for that Kelly/Thomas card. Thank you.
