'Tis the Season: the great card dump

It's that time of year, folks - 'Tis the Season ver. 2.0. For those that were around last year and forgot, or for you noobs that missed last year, "Tis the Season" is the time of the year that we here at Fort 2x3 give back to the readers of the blog. It's a chance for you to get free stuff, and all you have to do it read and comment. And maybe do a dance - I am not sure about that part. Basically, it's my chance to free up some space in my boxes by quickly giving away cards. This is a giveaway that will happen thru the month of December. You can tell when I blog about a giveaway, whether to announce a winner or start a new giveaway - the post will have the subject "Tis the Season". See it up there?

The part I like to do at this time is just give. I expect nothing in return. I will give away cards I just don't like, my dupes, specials - lot's of fun stuff. And all you need to do is comment. If you follow me - great. Thank you. But it's not required. You do not have to promote any of my posts. If you want to - thanks again. But I try to do everything here as a simple contest. Most of the giveaways will be a simple "guess the serial number" on a card. Closest wins. I am thinking of doing one giveaway where I will use Random.org. The union is still is discussions about that. The best part about Tis the Season is that everyone wins. Even if you don't win a contest, you will get cards from me this year. And yes - even you readers that are not in the States. Last year, I did a PWE of cards to everyone that selected. And in fact, instead of putting that at the end, we will start the giveaway with the gift to everyone: The Great Card Dump.


For the record, that image is NOT SHOPPED! That is a real display in a real mall in Europe. Seriously, Jereon, what is up with you people? That guy is called the Caganer, and he is part of nativity scenes in France, Spain, Portugal and France. I....er.....shit you not.

Anyway, for Club PWE, I have a huge box loaded with cards. Quite often, I skip over cards to send nicer things in the envelopes. I would really like to clean out that box of all the stuff I skip over. If you want some free cards, here is your chance. Yes, some may be junk wax, or other "not so interesting" sets. However, if you would love a bunch of cards from your favorite team(s), all you need to do is fill out this form. I have you selecting up to three teams just in case I can't get you a lot for one. Let's be honest - I know of about 20 Dodger collectors. You guys are like roaches. And I have a finite amount of Dodgers. So give me some 2nd and third choices. Someone pick the Marlins for goodness sake!

Ok - so we are off with the 2nd annual Tis the Season. Rock on!

  5. If any Padres cards are giving you grief, I'll take them off your hands and give them a stern talking to (My wife laughs already when I talk to my cards).
