Wanna play a game (and get some free cards)?
This is where I store my tradable cards, sorted by team. I started using this system more than a decade ago, when the Nationals were still known as the Expos and the Marlins claimed the entire state of Florida their home, rather than just Miami. Every drawer has something in it, even the six blank drawers. And I want to get rid of it all, a little bit at a time.
So let’s play a game. If you want the contents of one of the drawers, follow my Twitter page (@REALjtCarter) and retweet the pinned tweet (which links to this post). Then reply to the tweet with the team you want, or if you want one of the unlabeled drawers (1 through 6). I will randomly select one retweeter and reveal the contents of the drawer live on Periscope, then send it to you.
Every drawer contains something. It may be one card, or it may be twenty. Or it might be something else altogether. And one of those drawers contains a jersey card of a current major leaguer. Also scattered throughout the drawers are some autographs obtained through the mail of several former major league players. In addition, there are a handful of parallels here and there. Whichever drawer you pick, you get everything in that drawer!
A couple of things to keep in mind: the Expos and Nationals are in the same drawer. Other defunct teams are generally included with their current location (i.e., the New York Giants and San Francisco Giants share their space). If a card is misfiled, it doesn’t matter; whatever is in the drawer you pick goes to you. The unlabeled drawers may include baseball cards or non-baseball trading cards, or may include something else entirely. This game is open only to US residents. Oh, and you can only pick one drawer, so choose wisely.
If you want to play (and I think it will be fun), click here, make sure you follow me, then retweet this tweet, and respond with the drawer you want. You have until Sunday night to make your selection. I will go live on Periscope with the drawing and reveal at 11 p.m. eastern on Sunday, March 19.
