Well, I don't know if this one will be easier or harder, but here it goes!
Now that I have my order in from justcommons.com, I have the final pieces for my Top 50 Padre Cards of the 90's countdown. To win, you will have to answer a few questions about what the Top 50 will contain:
1. How many Tony Gwynn cards will there be?
2. Besides Tony (he has the most cards in the countdown), which three Padres will be the best represented in the countdown? Place them in order from most to least.
3. As a (maybe?) tiebreaker, name one Padre that will only have one card on the countdown.
So, for example, your entry could be...
2. Donne Wall, Wally Whitehurst, and Wiki Gonzalez
3. Rickey Henderson
Just to show how tough it was to whittle it down to the Top 50, here is the last card that was left off...
Can't say that I feel great about leaving this one off, but there's no looking back now, Tony. We'll be seeing plenty of you once the countdown gets rolling.
I'd like to have the first post up on Wednesday morning, so get your guesses into the comments before then. I'll be breaking down the countdown into groups of five, so there will be ten posts altogether. I'll announce the winner after that, but if there is still a tie, I'll get it settled before the final post, and it will be something about the final five.
Clear as mud? Alright. Winner gets a rack pack of their choice of cards from whatever happens to be on the Walmart shelves at the time of the announcement, along with some other cards from my trade box that I might match some of your collecting habits.
Good luck! Go Padres! Go 90's!
