Contest Winnings

About two months ago, I finished in second place in Zach's 2nd Annual College World Series contest. He sent out the winnings probably five weeks ago and I finally got around to scanning them over the weekend.

The guy who won the contest got the first pick and then we bounced back and forth to select our winnings from his prize pool.

I was very happy to add another HOF auto to my collection

This is a pretty sweet collector's coin commemorating the CWS' first year at TD Ameritrade Park

Zach somehow came across a pack of Japanese cards that I was very excited to rip. 
I don't recognize any of these guys but it's still cool to open up a foreign pack of cards.


Next up was a lot of Royals player post cards; the Maury Wills auto was my next pick

Zach was nice enough to throw in a few extra cards of Zach Britton and an autograph of current Royal, Johnny Giavotella.

 As you can see, Zach is very generous with his prizes, so make sure you check out his blog, Autographed Cards, so that you don't miss out on his next contest.

I still can't believe that the Carew sig was not the first one chosen.

Are you going to be able to snag first or second three years strait?

I kicked myself for a while for not choosing the Carew, but I got autos for my personal collection instead of something I'd just have traded (never been a Carew fan), so I'm happy. Nice Giavotella auto!

I couldn't believe it either, but I was really glad it worked out that way. I hope to threepeat!

Justin- I would have done the same thing to help out my collection.
