It has taken 8 years, 3 months and 12 days but today is my 2,000th post on Pack War.
My first post was on June 6, 2009 and I started with a simple post about some ideas that I had for the blog, I honestly did not even consider the future of the blog. When I started I had been reading a couple of blogs regularly and I liked the way that collectors were interacting with each other and I wanted to be able to share my story too.
I hadn’t even realized I was this close to 2,000 posts until I was writing up a couple of Question Day posts that I save as drafts and looked over and saw I was at 1,991 published posts and I started wondering if I should just post #2,000 and not make a mention about it, just add it at the end of a regular post or should I do something special? I decided to do something, a giveaway. Nothing big but I wanted to make it special.
Here is what you need to do to be part of the giveaway:
1. Post here by Sunday 9/24/17 at 11:59 pm PST
1982 Fleer Cal Ripken Jr. rookie card
1993 Ted Williams Buck Leonard autograph
2004 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites Monte Irvin autograph
Awarding of the prizes:When the contest closes on Sunday 9/24/17 at 11:59pm PST I will run the entire list through Random.org three times with the #1 person on each randomization winning a prize.
The person in the #1 position on the first randomization gets first choice
The person in the #1 position on the second randomization gets the second choice
The person in the #1 position on the third randomization gets the remaining card
If it reaches 50 people joining I will add at least 2 additional prizes in which case I will follow the same rules with the awarding of the prizes but with two additional randomizations with the person in the #1 position on each of those randomizations being the winner of a prize.
I close with thanking everyone who has visited Pack War and read my posts. I really do appreciate it.
