It has been a while since I threw the "contest" rules out there. Here we go:
1) Follow the blog.
2) Comment each day (M-F) before midnight EST.
That's it, pretty simple and easy. Now for those who joined in the fun after I announced the almost daily giveaway. I hit a few milestones on the blog a few months back and although I often held contests/games over the years that were limited to US addresses, I did a big giveaway much like Night Owl did except, I wanted to keep it down to a manageable daily routine. So I said I would lift the US restrictions and do basically 9 cards (not always 9) each week day post for 1 year. We are now on the 82nd giveaway from this card dump if you will. Almost a third of the way. The difference is I am pulling the cards mainly from a 5K box that has been sitting next to my laptop for the last 6 years. Nothing but stars in the box (dupes of course). No reason for these decent cards to be hidden away doing nothing for me. So that's why I am doing these almost daily giveaways. Because I bought a lot of cards the last few months I sent a lot out from there too and thus I'm not making a dent in that box. UGH! Anyways, That's dealio.
With ALL of that said Friday night's winner was: Benjamin, see I told you.
Now for th emoment you all have been waiting all weekend for....... drum roll....
another drum roll..... Remember the title says baseball players, it didn't say they would be cards.
Bo often posts these 1930's Diamond Match books. They (baseball) were produced from 1934-36, and was loaded with Cubs.
As you can see, there were parallels, hehe. Different colored borders on many but not all.
I might as well throw this out there too. TCDB does not count the colored borders as separate match books unless there is another reason for listing the variation, yes I said variation. Many players had photo variations. So, way back nearly a hundred years ago, they were dealing with variations and parallels (just not at the um BS we deal with today).
I hope you enjoyed looking at these as there is still one more post of them for tomorrow. If you didn't see your team yet, check out tomorrow's post.
