Contest Winner! And Heartfelt Thanks

Aloha, everybody, 

Juuuuuuust a bit late, but here comes the winner of  ATBATT's 100,000 Views Contest. 

I dropped the 15 contestants names into the ol' randomizer, in the order you all entered, and it looked like this..

 Also on the list, but below the window sit: The Dutch Card Guy, Tony L., Adam K., and gcrl. Better late than never, boys. Welcome to the contest. 

I randomized three times, and here was the final screen, with our winner...

 Congrats go out to Al Kawamoto!Ypu'll find my email in my profile here. Just shoot me an email and let me know what teams and players you collect. I think you're a hockey collector, right? 

I planned to stop by the weekly Frank and Son's card show and pick up a couple of things for the winner, so I hope you can be patient with me Al, as I'll get there as soon as things normalize with mom's condition, and I can escape on a Saturday to the card show. 

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Lot's of players doesn't help your chances to win, I know, but it makes the contest a bit more fun with more contestants. 

Humble - but large - THANKS to everyone who sent your sincere thoughts and prayers out to mom and I. She's bouncing back slow but steady, and the plan is she will leave the hospital later today. She'll then go to a nursing home for about a week, where she will receive physical and speech therapy. After that, it should be her homecoming. 

As I said, a million thanks to you all, because your wishes and thoughts really boosted me up at a time that I needed it. Our cardboard community is generous with much more than cards and such - good thoughts and good friends are the most valuable collectables I've ever received from all of you. Thanks again. 


  1. surely holding my 15th position through the randomization is worth some sort of dodger consolation prize! in all seriousness, i'm hoping your mom doesn't need much time convalescing.

  2. Cool contest. Thanks. Glad to hear the good news on your mom

  3. Glad to hear your Mom is doing better. Thanks for the contest.
