These are the thirteen prizes that are up for grabs. I do this like a draft. Justin geta the first pick, Ryan the second, Justin the third, Ryan 4, Justin 5, Ryan 6, Justin 7, Ryan 8, Justin 9, Ryan 10, and Justin with the final pick (not all prizes will be picked).

Just leave a comment on this thread to make your pick. Congrats to the winners and thanks to all that played.

Justin, you are on the clock. You guys can do this in a day or a week. Doesn't matter either way for me.

Great prizes Z! I can't believe I got third place. My picks were so off. Thanks again for a great contest!

I'll take the five Indy Leaguer autographs.

Your welcome, Brian. Thanks again for playing.

Wow, I did not expect the five dupes to be taken first.

cubsfan731 said...

I thought about taking the stamp, but I went for quantity over quality. Besides, Ascanio is a former Cub.

zman40 said...

Nice! Unfortunately, there really isn't anything here that is specifically Cubs (or Orioles for that matter).

Ryan aka Orioles Magic said...

Rod Carew please! It will be a great addition for my HOF autograph collection!

Thanks for the awesome prizes man!
