Tis the season: Who won, and then the big one

Well, the holiday giving season here at 2x3 Heroes is winding down. I hope you all had fun. I hope the winners enjoy their cards, though I still gotta hit the post office - busy week here in my household, but I promise I will get stuff out very soon. For those they have yet to score anything, don't worry, because your chance is about to come.

But first, let's gives away two boxes of stuff I plain didn't like this year - 2012 Archives and 2012 Heritage. I am guess many of you didn't care, or didn't need, because the entries were less than the Allen and Ginter. No worries, I am just glad to get these out of my boxes. So, who are the lucky winners? Well, let's reveal the serial numbers.



And for a little bit of zoomage...


We have the Howard at #1052/1962 with the Braun at #915/1963. Can you believe it - just one person won both boxes?! Chunter is the winner, guessing 777 for the Howard (just guessing over DominicFDNY) and 1026 beating out...DominicFDNY. Dom, when I get Chunter's address, maybe you can convince me to forward it on so you can have a little talk with him, if you know what I mean. Chunter, I'll be in touch to get your mailing address. Congrats on guesses well made.

Alright folks, here's the big one. The idea for this was borrowed from another blog, and I can't remember who, but you know who you are and thank you for the idea. 2x3 Heroes is going to give away cards to those that ask for them - it's that simple. I have scanned 100 cards, which I hope many of you would enjoy to have. Pick 2. Pick 2 cards & leave a comment with the card numbers. I will reply to your comment that I noted your choices. Email me at 2x3heroesATgmailDOTcom with your picks by number as well as your mailing address. I will PWE your cards to you with enough protection they should survive whatever your mail carrier can do to the envelope.

This giveaway will last until a) the cards run out or b) 2013 arrives. So yes - Dec 31st 2012 at 11:59pm CST is the last day to make a comment and get a couple free cards.

If you are not sure about what a card is, just click on the image. You will get a bigger view, as well as a very short description of the card. Remember, put the image number in your comment below. You can put the player's name or description, but you MUST put the number down. Sound good? Well, let's stop the banter. Click on Santa to be taken to the Flickr set with all the cards. Happy shopping!
