Introducing TMM's very first contest

This blog's been going for more than a month now and I'm very happy with how things have gone.  I certainly feel better having my Michigan stuff split off from TMG since obviously only a small set of my readers were actually checking out those posts.  Also, it's been great to have Jeff on board since he's provided great content in terms of his own Michigan PC stuff and some editorials as well.

Because things seem to be going in the right direction, I though it was about time that I put up this blog's first contest.  I want to be very clear that this isn't a page view/followers grab--it's intended to thank and reward each of you who read this fledgling blog as much as you do.  That's why the only requirement this time is for you to leave a comment on this post.  It can be literally whatever you'd like (with a couple requirements, mentioned below).  


Each person will get a maximum of one entry, which will be randomed off in the usual way, and I won't be awarding bonus entries for following, pimping the contest, etc.  All I ask is that when you leave a comment, you do so with an account that links to your email, or that you leave contact info in the comment itself.  As such, I will automatically disqualify all entries made that result in a "no-reply..." address and that do not include contact info in the comment itself.  Good?  Good.


Now that all that is clear, here's what our one winner will receive:
  • Austin Powers UD Piece of Hollywood Costume relic (from Sam's recent group break)
  • Shaun Alexander 2003 SP Game-Used Edition jersey (which I received by accident from my favorite Blowout seller)
  • 2010 Press Pass PE auto of Joe Webb and Jersey of Sean Canfeld (extras from my several breaks of those)
  • A complete set of 2011 SAGE HIT low series and Pre-Rookies (I have a few of these from busting lots of those too)
  • And finally, something nice of the MLB or NFL team of your choice.  I'll do my best to make it something good like a hit if I can, but please keep in mind I don't have hits of every single team, so if I don't, I'll try to make it some nice inserts or RCs or something.  Please make sure to include your favorite team in your comment
The contest will end one week from today (Sunday) at 11:59 pm EST.  I'll remind you guys during each post this week, then next Monday I'll do a quick randomization and post the winner.  As a reminder, please make sure to leave me some sort of contact info in your comment, and make sure to mention your favorite MLB or NFL team.

Thanks again to everybody who reads and/or follows this blog.  I look forward to providing more Michigan Wolverines-centric comment, along with Jeff, for a long time!

  1. I'm enjoying watching the Wolverines beat up on Illinois in basketball. It has been a long time since they were relevant in round ball.

    1. Got it, thanks! Just curious, was the Alexander an extra draw for you? Anyway, no problem coming up with something good Mariners-related for you!

  4. Thanks for the contest. I am a fan by birthright of all Philly teams. My adopted team is the nationals - but maybe. It much longer since they may soon challenge the Phil's!!

    1. Haha, that would be pretty funny. I'd be happy to have it go back to you. I'm not sure I have anything Houston left, but I can probably come up with something. You're in!

    1. Greg, you're in, and lucky for you I should have some more Dodgers stuff handy, plus some other stuff I've been meaning to send you (if you win)

  10. I've got a good friend who's a Michigan fan, so this blog keeps me in the know with him. Not to mention I agree with Brian (Play at the Plate) that you've got a well-written blog here no matter the topic.

    My favorite team is the St Louis Cardinals, and a team I love just as much but don't collect quite as much is the Rams.

    1. Thanks, dude, I really appreciate it! And we here at TMM are of course fans of Tenets of Wilson. You're in, and I'll give you an extra half entry for effective sucking up. Unfortunately I have to round down, so you get one shot just like everybody else. Good luck!
