Opening Day Cards - Episode #32 (an even bigger contest)



Some people say we're crazy for giving away so many free baseball cards. Actually that's all we do. We mail you baseball cards for free. Word on the street is you like it? As always all the cards shown in this episode are yours for free if you're the first to comment with the card you'd like.

Even bigger news is the newest contest we are running - we're looking for new ideas for Opening Day Cards. Have an idea for an episode? Have an idea for a new direction? Have a guest that you can get on the show? Whoever comes up with the best idea wins 5 PACKS OF UNOPENED CARDS. Your choice. Pick them from our collection. If you win, we'll mail you the 5 unopened packs AND we'll actually do what you've suggested. We think this is going to be a lot of fun. So get those creative juices flowing and leave a comment below with your best idea!

PS - big props to the BIG Papi for running away with the Home Run Comp!

Josh H. said...

Hey guys if the junior card is still available I would like it also what is the exact deadline for the episode contest. Thanks again guys.
Also I heard the Cards just RSVP for the World Series.

Carolyn said...

Here's my suggestion.......invite all your fans to submit baseball card quality photos of themselves or their favorite ball players. Names and teams, i.e. De Pere Legion '03. Then on Opening Day 2011 you can begin unveiling the 2011 Opening Day Cards card set. Either an e-set, or a hard copy version.

Joe and Chris said...

Hey everyone- we have a few good ideas out there, but I am hoping you submit a TON more in the next few days. The contest ends Monday, July 19th at 11:00pm Pacific Time.

The winner gets 5 FREE PACKS OF UNOPENED CARDS. You choose which 5 packs you want from our every increasing collection!

I'll be sending cards out today, here's what I have so far:

Josh H - Jr.
David L - Clayton Richard
Bennett F - CC Sabathia
Nick P - David Price
Jeff A - Jonathan Papelbon
Austin B - Kyle Blanks
Troy K - Chad Billingsly
Randy M - Carlos Beltran
Chris M - Victor Martinez
Alex H - Mike Sweeney

Closing thoughts:

1. My father's name is Carolyn?
2. Josh, hilarious comment...Cards RSVPing for the World Series...that's rich. I hope my Brewers make a run.

Ben said...

Austin FItz said...

I'd like to request full disclosure as to weather Joe is wearing jean shorts. They sure look like jean shorts - which would be completely inexcusable.

Joe and Chris said...

Full disclosure, Joe was wearing light blue khaki shorts. BUT...I wish I was wearing jean shorts, and in fact, I will be looking for a pair of cutoff jean shorts for use in an upcoming video. I consider that an inadvertent submission in our contest of "Best idea for an upcoming video."

Blakely said...

Pappelbon please he is still my boy even though he is struggling of late but let's not remember what a HUGE part of the 04 & 07 team he was!!!

Joe and Chris said...

It's mostly his attitude that kills me. I'm not taking anything away from his previous performances, the guy just isn't a class act lately. I still love him for what he's done for Boston and I hope he turns that attitude around.
