Trick or Treat! (UPDATE 10/18/08)

Update (10/18) - WOW! The response to the giveaway has been fantastic! There are some interesting 'tricks' heading out soon and a LOT of treats! Of course, if you know my MO, you know that even the tricks will have treats. And, some of what *I* think are tricks may actually turn out to be treats to some of you! So, if you get a 'trick,' be sure to look through ALL the items! Sunday, I will start emailing the folks that I need mailing addresses from. To let you know, I had my son and daughter decorate the boxes. They really loved being a part of this. As for the folks that haven't 'knocked' yet, I am out of any Yankees worth anything as of tonight. I have little to no Nationals. Other than that, feel free to knock away!
Update (10/17): Thanks for the great comments! Dayf, you'll get yours for the mess I have to clean up!! :-) Lucy, thanks for the wonderful poem! I appreciate everyon who has responded so far!! I am building my mailing list and will be contacting those of you that I do not have mailing addresses for shortly!!

There've been a lot of knocks on the door and there is still plenty of 'trick or treating' to go around!!

Oh, Lucy, there is a box already headed your way - it's something I had already put together and is NOT your 'trick-or-treat' box!!

Also, there are a LOT of most teams and players, so there are no "dibs!" Several people may receive the same team, player, etc... You just never know what's in the ol' goodie bag!! :-)

In the spirit of Halloween, I'm having a "Trick or Treat" baseball card giveaway extravaganza! Well, okay, maybe it's not an EXTRAVAGANZA, but hey, it's free cards!

What do you have to do? Just knock on the door and yell "Trick or Treat!" For those that do not live close to my house in the boonies of southern Arkansas to actually knock, you can take advantage of the COMMENTS feature of Blogger! :-)

Leave a comment with an email address or send an email to my profile email address. Simply say, "Trick or Treat" and let me know what team(s) or player(s) you collect and where to send the tricks and treats. In return, you will get a trick, a treat, or both!

What's a trick? Maybe you get the arch enemy of the team you collect! What's a treat? A smattering of cards of the player(s) and/or team(s) you collect! What about both? Ah, well, that's the ultimate in "What The- did Tribecards send me THIS time!?"

Knock on the door, if you dare.... I'm waiting..... Mwahahaha....
