Welcome to my blog. I want the Josh Willingham cards. All of them.

Sunday, April 23, 2017


Gavin found himself a victim of larceny at the hands of Napkin Doon contemporary-the Lost Collector!  Gavin has chosen number 2 to pick up the pieces.
A giant shoe box filled with baseball mystery.  But i will give you a peak...
SCC is now on the clock.  He may steal the mystery box, the Mookie jersey, the vintage lot, or the Trout relic.  Or he may select 3,4, or 6-15.  Good luck my friend.  Just as a note I will post any updates tomorrow around 7pm.


By my calculations Gavin was on the Mookie jersey for about ten minutes!  AJ in tribute to Napkin Doon to make a steal!!

Gavin may now steal the vintage lot or the Trout relic. Or he may select from numbers 2-4 or 6-15.  Good luck!


Gavin has made his selection of number 1.
A nice JSA autographed Mookie Wilson jersey.

AJ is on the clock.  He may steal the Mookie, the vintage lot, or the Trout.  He may also selct 2-4 or 6-15.  Good luck!


John has selected number 5.

A well loved six card vintage lot for John.  

Gavin is on the clock.  He may steal the Trout or the vintage lot.  He may also select from numbers 1-4 or 6-15.  GOOD LUCK!

BIG FUN GAME PICK 2 John Miller on the clock

John has a little over a day and then we will move on and let him jump back in later.  Ive emailed JM and left a comment on his blog but he may be out of pocket this weekend.  Let's cheer John on as the blogosphere watches in wonder. Even Tad wants to see pick 2
Hope your well bud and good luck in the BIG FUN GAME!

Final seat gets filled and BIG FUN GAME RULES

It's time to get this baby on the runway. 

I must add John Miller to the mix cause in seat 14 I said bottom guy on the randomizer so he and Stealing Home are now both in.  So now the game will be final with 16 players!  Sorry bout that John but your in!!!

Number 16 the final seat belongs to this entrant:

Congratulations to LC for snagging the last spot.  Now it's time to share the rules, taken straight from Napkin Doon's original BFG in 2011.  I have changed a couple of particulars

So help me, I am going to generate some buzz on this blog.   One thing I think would be fun to do is a “White Elephant” card giveaway.  I am going to select 16 decent-to-good card related “gifts” and select 16 brave souls to sign up to play a game of “White Elephant” to claim them.   I think this game has several names, but this is how I know it.  Here is how it will work:
After I have 16 readers selected for the game, I will randomly set a pick order.  Whoever has the first pick can choose any lots #1-16.  I have already determined the prizes and assigned numbers to them.  Rest assured, there won’t be anything crappy, like a 1990 Donruss common.  Some prizes will be better than others though.  There will be a few single cards, a few player lots, and few autos, and some other surprises.   Keep in mind I am doing this on my dime, so don’t expect a vintage Mantle.
After player 1 picks their prize, I will identify the prize and cue player 2 to pick.  Player 2 can either steal that prize or pick from the remaining lots.  Player 3 can then either steal one of the known prizes, or can steal from the remaining lots.  It will go that way all the way until player 16 chooses their prize.    If player 16 however,  chooses to steal a prize from another player, that player will then have the option of taking the final unknown prize,  or stealing from someone else.  We’ll keep going until all prizes are claimed.  A couple of rules to keep in mind:
Prizes can only be stolen twice.  Once an item is stolen twice, it is frozen.
Players cannot steal back from someone who just stole from them.  You must wait at least one round to steal an item back if you get the opportunity.
Once the game is over, please email me your address and I will send out your prize.
Hopefully this makes sense, and if it goes well, we’ll do it again sometime.
