I, Chris Harris, publisher of Stale Gum, has lowered himself to ripping off ideas from other cardblogs. Specifically, the "Trade Me Your Brewers" contest
Here's the deal, you send me any 20 cards from my wantlists and in return, I'll send you 20 cards from whatever team/player/set you collect. The highest score wins... something-a-ruther. (See, that's where I got the name.)
|Short-Printed Base Cards||2|
|Serial-Numbered Base Cards||4|
|Serial-Numbered Inserts > 1000 Copies||7|
|Serial-Numbered Inserts <= 1000 Copies||10|
|Game Used Base Card/Inserts||10|
|Autographed Base Card/Inserts||20|
Here's the twist...
ANY CARD FROM A SECRET SET IS WORTH DOUBLE!
What are these "secret sets?" If I told you, they wouldn't be a secret, now would they? Chances are, if you read this blog regularly, you already know what these secret sets are.
AND ANY CARD FROM A SHIT SET IS WORTH NEGATIVE VALUE!
What is a "shit set?" Again, you'll figure it out. Send me a 5-point card from a shit set, and you will be deducted 5 points.
NO PARALLELS, OR NON-BASE SET AUTOGAMERS!
I don't collect parallels, and if you send me one it will be treated as a shit card. If you have an autogamer, it had better be from a set I'm actually collecting. If not, it's a shit card.
So shoot me an e-mail telling me that you want in, what you want in return, and I'll send you my mailing address. You have until August 31st to mail me your cards. After I receive all your packages, I'll reveal them all on Stale Gum and the winner will get... something-a-ruther.
