Thanks for the warm welcome guys.
Hey, as long as you stick around and contribute - I did say that they'd never be heard from again. You're only a troll if you, you know, troll.

I am surprised this didn't have more entries honestly.

And to piggy back off of Johnny E, I'm a lurker by design. I've been here just a little while and I'm nowhere near the level of most "regulars" collections, so I just sit back and learn from you guys. This whole "I deserve to win because I'm a regular" attitude just keeps people from getting more involved as well.

You guys have guilty consciences.

Everyone please re-read what I wrote. I guess I didn't word it properly to include every facet of membership. I was talking about the person who found out about the contest, created an account, entered, wins, and then disappears into oblivion.

Whoa, guys REALLY your trash talking over THIS think about what a nice thing Blowout has done for the collecting community. They didn't have to be nice and run promos every few weeks, in fact every week in the NFL regular season they gave out 54 FREE BOXES a week, but they didn't have to. And in my mind they are the #1 card dealer out there and I will be a BO customer for years to come. BTW, congrats on the store, wish my LCS was like that.

It's all in good fun.
I second your tip-o-the-hat to Blowout! I'm new, but in reviewing the site and the history, I'd say these guys a awesome. I'll definitely be making some purchases. Good luck everyone!

I read it to say you're implying that post count matters with regards to who should win. Regardless if I win or not, nothing will change. I'll still visit nearly every day drooling at the breaks and just generally being invisible.

There's a couple little things in the pictures that don't show up well, so click the link below to see the full resolution version!

FULL RESOLUTION

I'm a relatively new member to BO, but I've been bouncing around different card forums for years. I think I've finally found the one that I like the most! I love 2012 Topps so far and I'm pumped about Blowout's new store! I'm graduating next summer and have a job offer in Springfield, VA, so this will be my new LCS! Hopefully I will win the gold bar and will be able to cash it in on some hobby boxes at the Fantastic Store!

It'd be cool if the Top 10 most creative entries get a small prize (i.e gift certificate, free hobby box, etc.)

Wow. Yeah, going to be a toss-up for the case. Your creativity vs his humor. Good luck!

I am hoping for a boobie prize for the most uncreative entry.

When they announced the consolation prize (Bowman Chrome case) the price on here was $775. Now it's $700, less than 10 minutes later. Is that a typical day-to-day shift?

Yeah. To credit those that made super creative posts they are going to pick their 10 favorites and then let the forum members choose. The winner gets a case of 2011 Bowman Chrome Baseball.
