Default Winners Announced - Brockelman Auction Contest w/vintage card prizes

CONTEST ClOSED

Brockelman Auction contest time is here again for the auction that ends this Saturday, and you have the chance to score some vintage cards, including a bunch of cards of Hall of Famers, such as Tris Speaker, Eddie Collins, Paul Waner, Zack Wheat and more, and now with some T206 cards available too!


The auction: http://www.brockelmanauctions.com/catalog.aspx


This time the contest will involve the first 153 lots in the auction (lot #'s 1 through 153), which is mostly Pre-WW2 baseball. Your guesses will only involve the lot numbers in the auction whose lot number ends in numbers 0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, or 9.


You will need to guess one lot number from each of the above lot ending numbers (from lots #1 through 153) that I consigned to the auction. An example guess of lot numbers would look as follows:

0 - 620
1 - 591
2 - 712
4 - 644
6 - 706
8 - 618
9 - 739

The above guess would not be very successful, because these lot numbers do not exist in the auction, but at least this sadly oblivious guesser was correct in picking only 1 lot in each of 7 different lot ending numbers.


Your goal is to guess more correctly the lots that I consigned than your fellow Net54'er. In the case of a tie, the first guesser is the top winner.


The prizes are as follows: Top guesser gets their choice of one HOF card from the first scan (or the lot of 6 1954 Topps seen in the second scan) AND 2 common cards from the third scan. The runner up will get 2 commons of their choice from the third scan, after the top guesser makes his selection, of course.


As a bonus, if someone identifies all 7 correctly (would only apply to first who does this), then they would be able to pick an additional Hall of Famer card.


The rundown on prize cards available:

First Scan (HOF):

W517 Paul Waner
1936 S&S Game Joe Cronin
Diamond Stars Kiki Cuyler
W513 Herb Pennock
W512 Dazzy Vance
W560 Al Simmons
W560 Kiki Cuyler
W573 Zack Wheat
W514 Clark Griffith
W516 Ray Schalk
W516 Tris Speaker
T202 end panel Frank Baker
W515 Red Faber
W590 Eddie Collins


2nd scan (considered a HOF pick):

Group lot of 6 1954 Topps including Hoyt Wilhelm


3rd scan (Commons):

1941 Double Play Moore/Mancuso
Diamond Stars Berger
1936 Goudey Werber
E121 Griffith
W573 Fletcher
E120 Smith
1933/36 Zeenut Hunt
E91C Street
C46 Silton
W560 Thevenow
W560 Myer
W590 Blades
W516 Fletcher
W519 Barnes
W514 McCarty
W560 Thompson


4th Scan:

T206 Delehanty
T206 Clark
T206 Murphy
T206 Marquard (counts as HOF pick)




You are allowed two guesses of 7, with no edits. All guesses need to be posted by 6pm EST on Saturday, October 16th, the same night that the auction closes. Good Luck!


Brian

nat nailed it...everybody is allowed two guesses.

And remember, the tiebreaker for guesses with the same correct amount is the earlier entry, so that means you better get crackin' with your guesses.

Keep the guesses coming...it just involves a little bit of your time and pouring over the auction.

I believe many of us already do this as an unpaid (and actually quite costly) second job anyway.

A bump to remind that both the contest and auction end tomorrow. Also, I have added the below T206 cards as available prizes to entice those who know which side their toasted tobacco cards are buttered.

Brian (Marquard counts as a HOF pick, because, of course, he is in the HOF)

Final notice...less than 4 hours (6pm EST deadline) to get your TWO guesses in.

Good Luck, and if nothing else, enjoy the auction as either spectator or participant.

One tiny hint to help out any wanting to dip their toe (or toes, if they have multiple to spare) into the contest...no lots I consigned are currently over $400 NOR are any likely to end above $400.

I swear, the rumors of math being necessary in this contest are wildly exaggerated. For example you only need to be somewhat familiar with the Fibonacci Sequence to submit a potentially successful guess.

Congrats to nat, who was the top guesser with 6 correct with one of his guesses. He will be awarded the HOF card (or lot) of his choice and 2 commons from scans 3 or 4.

Nebboy also correctly guessed 6, but his guess came in after nat. He is awarded 2 commons of his choice after nat has made his picks.

PM's to both on the way.


Thanks again to all for participating, and hopefully you also scored some cards from the auction.

Brian
