I want this blog to hit the ground running so I thought I'd offer a little contest to drive up the number of followers. I think most of you know how this game goes and I really appreciate those who choose to help out. Completion of each step will get you one entry into the contest.
Step 1. Follow this blog. Pretty simple stuff right there. If I'm not following you, I will. I'm always looking for some good reads.
Step 2. Promote my "Welcome" post on your own blog, if you've got one. Let me know when/where you've done that. Multiple promotions allowed, one per day limit.
Step 3. I'll be tweeting each post when it goes live. Follow me for another entry: @2014ToppsBlog
Step 4. Retweeting any of my posts will get you an additional entry.
And what is the prize you may ask?
I plan on buying a blaster to satisfy my pack busting itch before my full set arrives. If I have 10 blog followers before my first card post on Friday, January 31, 2014 at 9:00 AM EST, I will select a random winner from entries garnered from the above steps for all of my non-Cubs inserts. This would include any of the basic inserts and although admittedly unlikely, any autographs, relics and numbered parallels from the blaster.
If I have 20 followers by the same deadline, I'll throw in the unopened Commemorative Patch pack pulled from said blaster. Sight unseen.
Same winner gets both prizes and will be randomly selected from all entries.
Good luck to all and thanks for spreading the word!
