2014 Blowout Cards Secret Santa Gift Exchange
PLEASE....for the love of (insert higher power here) READ THE WHOLE FLIPPING ORIGINAL POST BEFORE ENTERING OR SENDING QUESTIONS.
PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING FROM BELOW. I SPENT A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT AND MORE THAN A FEW PEOPLE SEEMED TO PUT IN NONE. WE EVEN HAD PEOPLE IN THE PAST NOT EVEN SEND ANYTHING. I had people PM me 4 or 5 times for the address they were supposed to send to. Some people made NO effort in sending their item on time. Others basically went through their junk GU and sent them off. If you will be one of these people this year----please don't join!
On the flip side we had some INCREDIBLE gifts given by people who are looked down upon here on the forum.
THIS IS ABOUT GIVING. NOT RECEIVING. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS
Also, if you want a certain member to be your recipient let me know. I would do this if you had something you knew that member would really love. (This worked out really well last year)
RULES and Regulations: PLEASE READ THROUGH BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS
Each participant will be obligated to send a “GIFT” to another participant. The “GIFT” should have a cost value of approximately $25.00 or more (This means you spend at least $25). The “GIFT” should be gift wrapped according to the season BEFORE it is packaged to be mailed . On the outside of the package, should be placed the words BLOWOUT gift exchange. This should help people from just randomly ripping a package open. The package should be mailed on or shortly after the 1st of December in order to insure a delivery in time for the holidays. “GIFTS” should not be opened before the evening of the 24th of December. Besides the return address on the package, no identification of the sender is necessary.
Gifts must be sent with Delivery Confirmation and the number must be sent to me.
Open to members in good standing who have been here Since January 2015 AND have at least 15 I Trader rating or higher or have a good transaction with me. I ALSO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DENY ENTRY TO THIS EXCHANGE FOR ANY REASON I SEE FIT
“GIFTS” are limited in their nature to being sports related or at least something that PSA or BGS might grade or authenticate. (in the rare case of a non–sports card or autograph)
PLEASE put some effort into this. If someone wants to receive current Boston Red Sox please don't send Alex Rodriguez.
Let's have mature members who ALL make this a fun experience!
You can request to be a certain member's Santa but I can not guarantee anything.
Reply to this thread if you want in and send the following information to me via pm. If you can't follow this simple instruction you may want to rethink entering
**Copy the outline below and pm me a filled out version**
1. Blowout user name:
2. Real name:
3. Mailing Address:
4. Email address
5. Specify sports, players and teams you are interested in.
The following is the list of folks who have shown interest. Other participants will be added. Once I have received the personal information , the word “CONFIRMED” will be placed next to your user name on the list. The list will be finalized with an OFFICIAL CUT OFF TIME on October 28th @ 9PM EST. I will then pm the name , address, and sport interest of each participant to their respective “Secret santa”. Each participant will then pm me, so I know that their “GIFT” WAS sent. The word SENT will be placed on the master list.
The Master List will be updated on a regular basis.
