This is what’s great about the hobby #2

Contest is now over
As I said, I have been on fire when it comes to winning cards lately. I wish that the luck translated into winning the lotto but in the meantime I will take it for what it is: great people in the hobby being generous. The next handful of posts will highlight that. I do want to note that for every 3 contests I win, there is 1 person who does not send anything. I don’t get what people gain out of picking a winner for these contests and not sending the winner anything.
As stated in the earlier post, I will show a little piece of the giveaway that I am running in all of these entries. As an extra bonus, you can comment with your Twitter handle or email address on each of these posts to get an extra entry into the contest. Again commenting with your Twitter handle or email on ‘This is what’s great about the hobby’ posts numbered 2 to 7 will give you an extra entry until July 31st, 2015. The main entry link is: https://angrycardcollector.com/2015/07/26/pay-it-forward-1/
Today’s first contest win was from https://twitter.com/CdubsCards, a Colorado based collector.
He graciously gave out a Barret Loux autograph, Jose Guillen autograph, and an Adrian Beltre card numbered to 199. My personal favorite card is the Jose Guillen autograph. He signed the card on the side instead of under his name. If you remember anything about Jose Guillen, this is fitting as the guy was on his own planet during his playing days. Guillen may not have been a star, although he had his moments, but this card is going to be one of my favorite pieces of my collection because it truly shows his personality. Thanks again C-Dub.
