Today, I spent about an hour at my local card shop looking for cards to include in an appreciation contest which begins on May 5th. Beginning that day, I will award a POBC to the best comment left on this blog during the previous week. In all I will award at least five cards during the month of May. At least one card each week.
So far I have found a few cards: Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Warren Spahn, Reggie Jackson, Frank and Brooks Robinson, Duke Snider, Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews. All major players during their playing days. Cards from the 1950's, 60's and 70's. No fakes. No reprints. No Heritage (I think that's what they call them nowadays). All are real cards. All are well loved.
No grading, No mint cards. Not even cards in very good shape. These are poor old baseball cards.
This is the first time I am doing this sort of contest and can use your help on how to conduct it. I really want the entries to be entered as comments. But how would I go about notifying the winners?
Should the entries be limited to that week's posts or to any new comment made that week on the entire blog?
How do I notify someone who does not have an email link on their profile? Does it mean no one can win if they comment annonymously?
Any help out there from my fellow bloggers would be appreciated. Should I include comments to the facebook page?
Thanks everyone for being a part of POBC!
