100 Followers, Really?

People actually read this blog.
It's a question, a statement of surprise and amazement.
This morning, the 100th follower of my blog appeared. Frankly, I am stunned.
In December 2009, I started writing about my collection of stuff. Truthfully, I didn't think this little blog in the corner of the sportscard collecting world would have enough content to last.
Not that there's anything wrong with asking, but I have never asked for you, my readers, to follow this blog. All 100 of you did it voluntarily. That's pretty cool.
As a way of saying thanks, I am going to random off all 100 names. Three spins of ye old randomizer should do. First place gets their pick of these graded cards, second and third get their pick of the leftovers.
Spin 1
Spin 2
Spin 3

Congrats! sacoo, Cracknell, and Mitchell.

Thanks again to everyone that stops by here. Thanks to all the great friends I have, but have never met face-to-face. Thanks to all the readers . I am appreciative of all of you.


  1. Hey, congrats on 100!
    Always enjoy my visits here.

  2. Congrats! Keep up the good work!

  3. Don't look now but you're at 101 with a bullet. Congrats.

  4. Congrats! Good luck with your set pursuits and keep it up!

  5. strangely, I found your site due to nothing to do with baseball cards at all. I guess my grandfather, who passed on before I was even born, used to repair sewing machines after WW2. We had some picture of him next to a big sewing machine and we were just looking around the net trying to figure out what kind of machine it was. Voila, I find you.
    My daughter really likes the Singer playing card that came in your trade package, too. She has it in her little box of "treasures", an honored place for an 8 year old.

  6. NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE!!! Congrats and here's to 250!

  7. Dang, almost broke the Top 10 in the first spin. Oh well. Congrats on the milestone. I got a long way to go for a plateau like that.

  8. Heck yeah! 100 followers is AWESOME!!! Congrats!!! One heck of a cool contest, too... It has been my lucky week in milestone contests, I love it!!!
    I think I get second pick and I really hope that '79 Murray is still on the table... I need that one for my set and it would go perfect with my PSA 8 Ozzie Smith and Paul Molitor... Awesome and congrats again brother!

  9. Thanks fellas. It's been great having your feedback.
