My New Holy Grail - CONTEST!!

Post by vjw0307 on Fri Mar 15, 2013 2:19 pm

So, I was recently able to pick up a signed card that I've wanted since I was 8 years old. Instead of just revealing it up here, I thought I'd make a contest out of it.

Each day I will give one hint/clue as to what it is, and the first person to correctly guess what it is will win the following item:

A signed Topps Contract of former Cubby Corey Patterson

Contest rules...you only get 1 guess per day

First Clue:

It's a card of a future HOF baseball player...

Nope...neither of them...but you also have to say what brand and year card it is along with the athlete...

One more clue. Its one of the more rare and most sought after cards since Griffey's '89 UD RC...

You said since you were 8, based on your profile that would put you 8 years old in 1990. This is the only 1990 card that came up in my searches.

If not then I bow out with no idea.

Sweet! Thanks for holding that contest!

So only the card is graded... Not the graph?

Yep, just the card was graded...the auto is pretty strong...it would probably grade out at a 9 if not 10.
