I NEED SOME HELPWhen I started this blog it was only intended for me to have a place to post my TTM autograph returns for my own inventory and maybe show my brother. Thus, the title and URL. I didn't know years ago what it would turn into. I am having way more fun collecting now with buying and trading cards and a lot of it has to do with trade partners and friends I've made through this blog. Now the title and web address do not describe the blog accurately and its just plain boring. The Tigers are "rebuilding" so maybe I should too. So heads up followers; the web address and name will soon change but content will be the same.
CONTEST TIME!As I approach my 100th post on this blog I would like that century mark posting to be an unveiling of a new name for the site. So here's the deal: I will pick one grand prize winner to not only be my brilliant blog brander but they will receive a big 'ol prize package from me with cards and other stuff that I guarantee to be awesome. ALSO, I will pick a couple other entrants at random to win some stuff just for visiting and participating. To enter: Comment on any post from my blog with a new name idea OR comment on someone else's idea if you like it OR email me at dionne.tribsports at gmail dot com with your name idea. ANYBODY CAN ENTER! Make sure I can trace some kind of contact info for you with a link or email address so I can contact the winners and personalize the prize a bit. Contest ends when I reach 99 posts. I would approximate that to be around Halloween time so there is time to think but feel free to enter as many ideas as you want for the grand prize. Entering more than once will not help your chances at the randomly drawn prizes as you will be entered only once for those. I would like the title of the blog to be something catchy but would stress it should describe what the blog is about so random googlers can find it. Check back here for the 100th post to see who won and to bookmark me to your favorites again!
Here are some thoughts that represent me or the blog that you may incorporate in the new name:
I live near Detroit and collect Detroit Tigers. I am a sucker for dimeboxes and junk wax. All my baseball heroes are late-80s and early 90s stars. I send out for TTM autos, trade with online and offline collectors, and attend card shows to add to collection. Like many others, I took a break from collecting from 2000-2010 or so for chicks, money, and a career. Now, I am a stay at home dad who loves to hunt and fish. I have a 3 year old son named Nolan who loves to go to the card shop only because he gets a happy meal after but I try to make him apart of everything I do.
