It's Contest Time - The Lucky 13 Contest

Aloha, everybody, 

It's time for ATBATT to have a contest! As I mentioned before, I was inspired by a couple of other contests that ran earlier. First was the Big Fun Game that Wes from Willinghammer Rising held, and later John from Johnny's Trading Spot ran one. 

Now it's my turn to step up to the plate. I'm calling this contest "The Lucky 13", and it's going to run very similar to those previous two. 

There will be 13 prizes, which means only 13 contestants. Each prize will be randomly numbered, and each contestant's turn to choose a prize will be randomly ordered. 

Once a prize is revealed (when it is chosen), it can be stolen twice, then it's locked and cannot be stolen again. The person who had an item stolen cannot steal it back. 

Time is of the essence, as I have inside info that another contest is waiting in the wings. So if you want to participate, please recognize, we're looking for folks to keep the game moving as quickly as possible. When it's your turn, we'll wait 24 hours, and if you don't pick, the next person is up, and you will be placed at the end of the line. 

How do you get to play? It's super easy. First, live in the USA. Sorry, but the budget for my humble little blog doesn't stretch far enough for international shipping rates at this time. Next, place a comment at the end of the post. Cutoff time for comments is 11:59 p.m. (PST) Monday, June 5. 

I'll randomize however many entrants there are and the first Lucky 13 names will be in. 

What are the prizes? I collect baseball cards, so most prizes will be baseball related, but a couple of prizes will be football and basketball related. There will also be a prize or two that are not cards. Beware - there may be a white elephant (junky prize) lurking among the goodies. 

I think I covered everything. Get to commenting and let's see if 13 is your lucky number.
