It has been ordered...My 2010 box of Topps Allen & Ginter (the first of what is likely to be many). It has been a while since I have tore apart a box, and I thank Blowout Cards for providing e the best price to do it for. I even added in a few packs of Tobacco card size top loaders for those pesky mini insets that Topps puts in A&G, Mayo, T205/6, etc... Quite frankly, I really do not have very many tobacco sized cards so I am at a loss on the best way to store them. Putting each one in a top loader will cost too much and take up way too much space. I do not know of the existence of any snap cases or boxes. I do not want to do the pages/binder thing if I do not have to...although, if you have looked at the insert sets in A&G for 2010 they are all educational to some extent and I could use that a bridge to teach my 5 year old son some cool things (and maybe spark his interest in collecting).
So I present to you, my Orange Kool-Aid Faithful.....a CONTEST!!!! The rules are as follows. All you need to do is post a comment letting me know how you store your tobacco sized cards. I am looking for serious options here... Each comment will gain you one entry. You can get 2 additional entries if you mention my contest and post a link to it on your blog (please let me know if/when you have done so). You can also gain an additional entry by following my blog (if you already follow it, you will receive an entry for following upon posting your comment). The following suggestions will not count: top loaders, pages/binder...I came up with those myself. If your method of storage has already been suggested, you may still post it (and receive and entry) - if one method is more popular than the others it might be the better method of storage.
If have less than 10 comments the prize will be something relatively trivial. If I have 11 or more comments the prize will be a tobacco sized game used card of a 14 year MLB veteran, and a tobacco sized game used card of a 17 year MLB veteran for you to store using your ingenious storage method. If there are more than 20 comments, I will sweeten the pot for the winner, and add a second place prize as well.
If this, my first contest, goes well I hope to do it again sometime soon. Thanks!
