  1. Thanks for the contest! Sorry the turnout wasn't what you were hoping for.

  2. Thanks Nathan! Totally missed this post. I'll shoot you my address in a few minutes.

    As for the 2008 Topps design... that was pretty much the year I reentered the hobby... and I really liked that particular design. It sort of gives off this retro vibe that I like in cards.

    Thanks again for this cool contest. I'm on a roll. I think this is the third contest I've won in the past two months. Maybe I should play the lottery.
