Goose Joak 100th Tribute Card - Contest Results!!!

Reactions: 
Ok, so here we go! Time to announce the contest results.

Your winners are...

Schruender
Jim

Congrats guys! You had the lowest (0.106) and highest (0.960) random numbers out of the whole group. There were 28 entries, way beyond what I expected. Just for fun, you can see the full results at the bottom of this post.

So to Schruender and Jim go the spoils:

- A grab bag of baseball cards (based on your favorite player, team, set...you decide)
- A custom tribute card of your choosing (you name the design and the player...or perhaps you'd like a tribute card of yourself or a family member!)
- A printed, signed and personalized tribute card of your choosing (whatever you vote as your favorite)

Schreunder picked the 1986 Topps Zack Greinke, and Jim picked the 2007 Turkey Red Ozzie Smith. You guys can comment or email me the rest, and I'll have those out to you pretty soon!

A sincere thanks to everybody who entered. It was entertaining to read the comments and the reasons people liked the cards that they did. Thanks to you, I have some new ideas for cards going forward, which I can't wait to get to. Also, it was fun to be introduced to some first time commenters. I had no idea some of you were reading the blog!

So what were the most popular cards? The winner was 1992 Stadium Club Brad Hawpe with four of the 28 votes (and several runner up mentions). Four other cards received two votes. Those would be:

1976 Topps - Chipper Jones
1986 Topps - Zack Greinke
1991 Donruss Elite - Bobby Thigpen
2008 Allen & Ginter - Chris Sabo

People really seemed to like those Stadium Club cards, which was cool. Seven total votes for the 1992 Stadium Club set (25%).

Here are the full results. I've added links so that you can take a look at the cards other people voted on.

Since the 1992 Stadium Club Hawpe won the contest, I'll be doing a special edition of that card to commemorate it as "best of the first 100."

  1. Wow! I had no chance being literally smack dab in the middle. LOL

  2. Very exciting! Thank you Dave and thank you random number generator!

    I have thought long and hard about the custom tribute card I would request, and when the answer came to me, it just felt right. I'd like to request a custom 2009 Allen & Ginter Bob Dernier card, with Bobby D. in a Phillies uniform. (I can help with a good picture, if needed).

    As for the grabbag - Phillies cards are always nice. Thanks again!
