ANNOUNCEMENT: Contest Involving 2009 Topps All-Star Rookie Team!!!

We're down to the final week of the baseball season, and while the division races starting to tighten, it's anybody's ballgame as to who will win the individual awards (MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year).

With that said, I am going to hold a contest of a very high magnitude (for me anyway).

On Monday, October 5, 2009, at 9:00 a.m. CST, I am going to post my predictions as to who will make the 2009 Topps All-Star Rookie Team. There are ten spots open for this team, one for each position (1b, 2b, 3b, ss, c), three outfielders (regardless of where they play), one left handed pitcher, and one right handed pitcher.

What do you have to do to enter???

To enter the contest, e-mail me your ten picks for the team at bdj610@hotmail.com with "All-Star Rookie Team Contest" in the subject line (do not leave your picks in the comments section).

If you get more players correct than I do when Topps officially announces the 2009 All-Star Rookie Team (normally announced late in November), you will automatically win a hobby pack of 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights (the regular hobby pack, not the jumbos). So let's say I get eight of the ten spots right (just like I did last year), and you get nine or ten correct, you win a free pack of cards!!! (This means if I totally bomb and get all ten players wrong, then EVERYBODY wins!!!)

Anybody who correctly predicts all ten players will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win the grand prize:

A complete 150-card set of 2005 Topps Rookie Cup (suggested Beckett Value $20.00-$40.00).

The drawing (if needed) will be held after the official announcement is made and all winners will be notified via e-mail. Their names will be announced on the board soon afterwards.

Only one entry per person. Entries must be received by Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 11:59 PM CST.

Again, please wait until after Monday, October 5, to leave your picks via e-mail. Good luck to all.
