A couple of hockey bloggers are taking part in charity runs and thus have fundraising efforts. I’m trying to help them out and, as such, have devised a little contest. I’ve gone through my boxes of stuff and have pulled 30-odd (haven’t actually counted) cards from between 1955 and 1979 to offer up as prizes. The objective is to have a trivia contest – 30 questions, 1-2 questions per day. First to a correct answer gets a point, most points at the end gets first pick from the prize lot.
Now, this isn’t an exercise to see whether one gets a card at all – everyone who enters gets to pick from the lot. The last person, by virtue of being last, even gets two. What we’re competing for is draft order.
It’s $5 to enter ($2.50 to each of the runners) and again, everyone gets a selection. While only a handful of cards are in the $7-15 range, there should be something to everyone’s taste. Moreover, if there’s someone you’d like to see who isn’t there, let me know and I’ll see what I have knocking around.
These are the donation links:
Step one is to make a $2.50 donation to each of them. Step two is to let me know you’ve done it. Step three (and this is important) is to give me a mailing address because otherwise, your winnings wind up in my basement.
Most importantly, here are the prizes up for grabs. I have some stuff coming via mail that I’ll post as soon as I can scan it.
You’ll note the the prize pack is slightly Hab/Bruin-centric. This is somewhat by design as The Active Stick is a Hab blogger while Sarah Connors writes for the Bruins. Still, there is a Gordie Howe, a couple Bobby Clarkes and some vintage Leafs, Seals et al for the rest of us.
You’ll note (if you’re sharp-eyed) that the 1957-58 Don McKenney and the 1971-72 Pete Mahovlich both appear twice. There is only one card of each. Scanning isn’t always clean. 🙂
Please wander over to Pension Plan Puppets, who has been nice enough to host the contest, to see the main thread.
