A Covfefe ... er, um - Contest!

A post that doesn't mention covfefe?  I can assure you, this post will not discuss high level Twitter mishaps.  No comments about smart phone tweeting at midnight from the Throne Room.   Not at all.  Instead, this post celebrates a milestone, one that slipped right past me.  It’s taken awhile but I’ve actually hit the 100 post mark!!   I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the big and continued welcome to this community.  I’ve not seen a negative post or comment in reference to newcomers or regular bloggers.  You are a good and generous people!  I’d tweet it around the world but am not a twit.

I’ve been giving away a lot of cards recently, always within a trade post.  That will continue.   Most all bloggers with reason to celebrate do so with a contest, many with a pimp clause.   I’ve never done this and think it’s past time for a pimp – or pimping.  [Please note -  I’m not  looking for part time work.]  

So here are the rules:

A >    follow my blog if you haven’t already 
B >    post a link on your blog to tell your readers about A Cracked Bat.   If you don’t  blog but tweet instead, TWEET me!    I’ll even give you a link.
C >   comment below with a link to your post or tweet which shows the pimping.  You can post AND/OR tweet but only one entry per person.   
D >   you must live in the USA, Canada or Rambouillet France.
E >    all previous winners are eligible

What’s the prize this time?  One 400 count box of my disCards!  There will be no junk wax.  Cards are from the 90s right up thru 2017.  There may be a relic or auto, some shiny or numbered cards but zero junk.  If you don’t like surprises then maybe this contest isn’t for you.


There is a short window of opportunity.  The contest will close Friday, June 2nd at 10pm EST.   I’ll announce the winner sometime Sunday evening.  Randomized  FIVE TIMES, the winner will be the last name from the list.   Last place wins!   All contests I've ever entered have me falling somewhere in the middle.   It's a good time to be last!

So don't be a loser!  Enter this contest!
