Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!

I was due for a contest win and thinks to the great guys at Cardboard Connection I came close, as their Runner-Up in their 2010 Topps T206 Contest. The question was, “which past sports card sets would you most like to see revived”.

My answers by the sports asked;

Baseball- Upper Deck Authentics for the simple reason is that I loved the 16" x 20" framed pieces.

Football- Fleer Authetix because while I think the product itself missed at the time, I think incorporating tickets into cards, when properly themed and designed is a still relatively unexplored area of product content.

Basketball- Topps Tall Boys circa 1970. I think the oversized cards would be able to do wonders for the modern day sports photography of this sport today.

So while I lost to a guy who honestly thought that one of my most hated card designs of all time should be brought back (1987 Topps "woodies") I was very pleased with the package that arrived for me yesterday. In addition to some Chicago teams base cards, Gridiron Giveaway code cards, and a Gridiron Giveaway Rookie Redemption, the guys sent me these three "hits".

From top to bottom; 2010 Panini Epix Jay Cutler Jersey, 2010 UD NCAA Sweet Spot Matt Forte Dual Jersey, 2009 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Chrome Jared Mitchell Auto.

Thank guys!!
