Phenomenal Contest Winnings From (Last Year....) and ENOUGH ALREADY!

I won a contest over at ENOUGH ALREADY around last October. I'm just now posting my winnings. For shame on my procrastinating self. The Big Kahuna sent along a ton of great stuff, and while I couldn't scan it all I did scan a lot of it.

The hits are up first. The Peyton Hillis is already headed to a Razorback home and the Chauncey will eventually end up with Adam Smith.

The Lee is a pretty sweet card overall. Love the colorful relic.

I have the DeWitt so if any of my fellow Dodgers' collectors need/want it, let me know. The Lewis /899 is a swell addition to my UCLA PC - if only the helmet had a Bruins' logo instead of a Jags' one - and the Piazza is just flat-out awesome. The DeWitt was a throw-in because I Tweeted Kahuna's contest to Topps.

More Dodger goodness. Some new Piazzas and some nice rookies.

A slew of numbered football cards, many of them oh so colorful parallels.

Parallels and numbered beauts from the game we all love.

Football keepers for various modest PCs.

The Dionne Lasting Impressions is numbered out of 50.

Kahuna has always displayed a good sense of humor on his blog, and this package was no different, as he included this interactive toploader complete with a recap of the first two picks of the 1998 NFL Draft.

One new Kershaw found its way to my humble abode, and I appreciate it greatly (I have the Bowman Gold and Tier One but they're cool cards so they get scanned anyways). The Tier One base card is #'d 407/799.

The final card was one that did not stand out from the rest at first as I went through the box of cards, but should have had I been more observant.

Glossy 1/1 Black Edition! I love minor league cards and I kinda dig quirky 1/1s, and this Greg Reynolds' card meets the qualifications of both categories. While it is pretty sweet, I know a Rockies' fan would appreciate it more than I ever could, and it's already been dealt for some sweeeeeet and major Dodger additions.

Many, many, many thanks to The Big Kahuna for holding the contest and sending me these wicked awesome winnings! My apologies that it took forever and ever for me to post them, and again, I can't express my appreciation enough for all of this phenomenal cardboard goodness you sent my way!


  1. That DeWitt you said is up FT, want to part with that in our Seager trade ?

    Nice pickups BTW

  2. Sure thing, it can be part of a larger deal.

    And thanks!
