THE GAME HAS CHANGED so read all instructions carefully :)
FOR THE FINAL 2 WEEKS OF THE FINAL TWO MONTHS OF THIS CONTEST, THERE WILL BE ONE GAME TO PICK. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK THE WINNER. HOWEVER, YOU WILL EARN 2 POINTS IF YOU GET THE WINNER RIGHT, BUT YOU WILL LOSE 2 POINTS IF YOU GET THE WINNER WRONG. THIS SHOULD SHAKE THINGS UP A BIT FOR THE PLAYOFF STRETCH.
IF YOU ARE A NEWBIE/RETURNEE/ ENTERING THE MONTH OF AUGUST, YOU GET THE SAME TREATMENT, EXCEPT IF YOU ARE AT 0 AND GET IT WRONG, WELL, YOU STAY AT 0. BUT IF YOU GET IT RIGHT, YOU GET 2 POINTS
The only other rule is you must be a U.S. Resident to enter or have an address in the U.S.

I was only the second to inquire and so glad I did.
@PuckJunk from puckjunk.com had thrown up some of his doubles up for grabs for those who wanted them. I spotted two cards immediately I knew I needed.

I think I have mentioned my new blog on here before, but if you missed my news , I have started a blog for what I consider is the prequel to SCC.
What I post on there is a lot longer then I do on here, has more personal details, and my origin of collecting. It will take you from 1994 all the way to today. Minus the mail days that will only appear on here.
I don't post on it daily as I don't have time to do both blogs that way, but I do squeeze in posts when I get the chance.
If you are curious by my collecting beginnings, I have the link to today's new post at the bottom of this post.
Let me know your thoughts and please add it to your blogrolls and follow it if you find it interesting.
Thanks in advance!
@B_Litch88 put up a couple of nice looking Sterling Shepard autographs on Twitter I just had to get. I couldn't let him just sit there. So I inquired about them and we worked out a trade pretty fast. He was a very reasonable trading partner and I was glad we worked it out as smoothly as we did.
He not only mailed out the Shepards, I will show in a second, he also tossed in some really nice extras I didn't have. The Jennings and Perkins are both /75.
The first Shepard is from Playoff football.
The second has a sick patch and is from Limited. It's also on-card.

In these 5 envelopes is a mix of 3-5 numbered insert cards and some decent hits. There are 3 chaser cards to be found in the 5 envelopes that I will reveal in just a second. There may be more contests down the road for more of the cards from the breaks so stay tuned for that too.
|Envelopes 1, 2 are claimed! The Third winner has not claimed theirs yet but I wanted to get this contest going.|
- MUST BE A U.S. RESIDENT TO ENTER. I CANNOT AFFORD SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE U.S. SORRY FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE AS I APPRECIATE ALL OF MY READERS. However, if you live outside the country but have an U.S. address, you can enter.
- CARDS WILL BE SHIPPED PWE
- SPORT CARD COLLECTORS BLOG OR IT'S OWNER/BLOGGER WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST, STOLEN OR DAMAGED MAIL.
- Envelopes will be mailed at the same time when the contest is over. I think this will make the suspense more fun.
- IN CASE OF A TIE, RANDOM 3 TIMES WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE A WINNER
- ENTERING MEANS YOU ABIDE BY ALL OF THE RULES ABOVE.
- You will have til Thursday, August 24th 2017 by 6 pm e.t. to enter. Winner announced on Friday August 25th.
- Good luck and please remember to THANK Panini America and Tracy Hackler!
This time sending a couple of cards I knew about and some surprises as well.
Up first, Eli! I expect a big season out of him and look forward to seeing him in preseason play I assume next week.

Congrats to Mike Zink! You win contest #3. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and choice of envelope number 3-5. You will have 48 hours to claim or the second place winner will claim it.
Thanks to all that entered, chance at PWE envelope #4 coming up soon!
@NYCollects recently posted on Twitter he had a bunch of POGs to give away,-you know the game from the mid 90's where you stack a bunch of the cardboard caps, use a hard coated slammer and throw it down on them and the ones that are face up get taken away, the ones that are face down continue in the pile and the first person to turn them all over wins. Sometimes you play the game for keeps and get the keep the POGs from your opponent if you win. You decide that before the game-and nobody else had claimed them. Everyone who reads my blog or follows me on Twitter knows I am very nostalgic so these brought back many memories so I claimed them. I still have mine from that era as well.
So on Saturday this package showed up with many of them. I didn't expect so many. It was very exciting!

Let's see how my break of the RED HOT 2017 edition went.
Pink, you can barely tell these but the strip behind Renfroe gives it away and a cool looking negative refractor of De LEON.
Freshman Flash look super cool as well. These fall 1:12 packs and have the following parallels, Green Refractor /99, Orange Refractor /25, Red Refractor /5, and SuperFractor 1/1.
This is probably my favorite insert design of 2017 Chrome, Future Stars. Looks really cool and falls 1:8 packs. The following parallels can be found as well, Green Refractor /99, Orange Refractor /25, Red Refractor /5, and SuperFractor 1/1.
Then and Now fall one per box or 1:24 and have the following parallels, Orange Refractor \/25, Red Refractor /5, and SuperFractor 1/1.
Please make sure to take a minute out to thank Topps for providing this box for me to review and to be able to add cards to the MLB Pick Em promotion. Follow Topps on all social media sites and visit their SITE, as well.
