A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

I Have 50 Followers Now...Let's Have a Thank You Contest

Hey everyone I am now excited because I got to 50 followers within my first three months.  Actually I got to 51 (but I am not counting myself).  As a thank you to my loyal readers I have decided to have the first contest here at the Quarry.



I want to try a little something different for my first contest.  Rather than a simple lucky guessing game or randomizer, I want to test your knowledge of cards (with a little bit of luck thrown in).

Here is how this will work.  I am going to be giving away one complete set of baseball cards.  Your job is to guess the set.  I will give one hint daily until there is a winner and all followers get one guess.  (First free hint: It ain't 1952 Topps)  If you pimp my contest on your blog and link it in comments you may have a 2nd guess, but only once per person.

*UPDATE* Thank you to Greg Zakwin for pointing out an error.  Everyone gets one guess per day if you are a follower.  There is NO penalty for an incorrect guess, have fun with it.  Pimping the contest on your blog will get you one extra guess that you may take at any time.

I hope this is fun for everyone and we all have a good time with it.  Good luck to everyone.

HINT #1 This set contains less than 100 cards total.

Guess away and if anyone gets it on the first day (probably not gonna happen) I will give a special prize.  Good luck.

One guess total or one guess per day?

Both actually, I updated with hopefully clearer info.

I honestly just threw this together off the cuff, so if there are any other questions feel free to ask.

No one got it. Guesses are now not valid for this day.
