Tis the Season: Something for everyone

Here's hoping your Christmas Eve is going well. And if you are Jewish, today is the final light on the Menorah. There is still time to have a chance at my duplicate giveaway. You can visit this post to read more, and then click the link to sign up.

As I mentioned, and as I like to do each year, I want to be sure anyone that would like something gets something. If you have been floating and visiting 2x3 Heroes over the past couple years, I have a Trade Bait page as most other bloggers do. However, it's gone now. I took the page down because in the coming years, I plan to do something else with the hits I receive. That's not to say I don't have a stack of relics and autographs within arm's reach of myself as I type. So that's my gift to each of you - take one of my trade bait, would ya? I scanned 67 different cards. I am not saying they are amazing hits. They're just cards that don't fit my collection. Some have been riding in the trade bait for a while and others never got scanned into the list. I want to let each of you pick one. Any one. It's yours, with no need to send me anything back. This is my Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Festivus gift to you.

Before I link you to the list, a couple rules. When you view the Flickr images, each is numbered. Come back to THIS POST and comment with the number of the card you want. Also, list out your favorite team and your favorite player. And if you think I don't have your mailing address, shoot me an email with your screen name and your mailing address so I can tie the two of you together.

The reason for the favorite team and favorite player is two fold. First, along with your pick, I'll throw in some team cards of your team. Now, I have baseball and hockey, so pick either. All my football and basketball are in the raffle, remember? Second, I plan on using this list to help with future hits I get. I can contact the people that have stated the team and/or player and offer up the card first. If no one wants or needs, I'll post about the card and throw it out to anyone that responds. My root thought is I don't want to be sitting on cards that belong in someone's collection. It's a waste.

Ok - Kate said she was under the weather, so Lauren stepped up to guide you to the cards...

Glenn's out looking for food.
That's pretty much it. Pick your card, comment here with that number plus your favorite team and player, then email me your address. If you aren't sure my email, I bet you could find it on the WANTS page. I'm going to let this roll thru the end of the year, so you have until the 31st to pick a card. And it goes without saying, but I will say it: just one of each card available, so once it's selected, it gone. I'll try and remove the image of any card selected. Have a great night, and watch out for fat men flying carts driven by rangifer tarandus.
