Fave Five -- Loot from Ryan G.'s Contest

Last month, I was one of the lucky winners of Ryan G.'s contest.  Ryan is one of those blogging over-achievers that make lazy guys like me look bad because he somehow finds time to run two entertaining and informative blogs -- This Card is Cool and The Cardboard Zoo -- while I languish away trying to keep my one blog alive, let alone entertaining or informative. 

This week I received my prize package.  When I opened the envelope, I found three team bags filled with cards.  There were some great cards in the package, so I thought I'd give it the Fave Five treatment.

HONORABLE MENTION -- Ahman, I got semi-Bipped.  

Also entertaining, UpperDeck thought it was necessary to serial number the Hakim cards.

FIVE --Premier Dates

FOUR -- Hockey Hologram

THREE -- Ticket to Jerseys

TWO -- A Pair of HOFers

ONE -- An 'N' for my Alphabet Set

Thanks again to Ryan G. for running a great contest!

Glad you liked it, and thanks for the kind words! Hopefully we'll see the results of cardanathema's prize, because that thing was crazy (no, really). (And it's always fun to pass off a Bip!) I'm glad you found some stuff you liked in the lot, since I really have no clue as to its value!

My secret to finding time to write? Really late nights. I seem to write best around 1am.

I'm interested in those Hakim's, I'll be busting a box of razor lettermen in a week so i'll let you know and maybe we can workout a bigger trade.

Ryan gave out some great prizes! And give yourself some credit, this is a great blog!

Yeah, what Napkin said! About your blog, that is! All your Fave Five posts are great to read, especially. I think they're the only non-baseball posts I don't skip over.
