Free Random Packs of Kindness (Indians Edition)

UPDATE - All the Indians packs have been given away for this round, thanks to an out-of-breath post by Motherscratcher who came stumbling over the finish line after a few hard days of work to claim the #10 spot!

Remember, send me your addresses and I'll get crack-a-lackin on sending out the packages!




I have not given away cards in quite a while, though I do have several packages that will go out on Monday (June 8, 2009).

So, I am starting a new way to giveaway some of the cards I have! I know, regular readers will find it hard to believe that I have come up with yet another way to give away my cards. It must be remnants from my radio days - I love giving stuff away (also the reason I never succeeded in sales).

For the next few weeks, I will create "Random Packs of Kindness" posts that feature one team. I will also post the number of gift packs that will be sent out for that team. All you have to do is reply to the post and let me know that you want one of the gift packs. That's it. Name it and claim it, as it were.

Of course, you might want to know things like, "How many cards do I get?" or "what years/players/brands are included?" or "Do I get any game-used/autos/etc?" or "Do the gift packs include things other than cards?" And my answer is the same for all those: "Ya never know!" And why don't *YOU* know? Because even *I* won't know until I start putting the packages together, and even then, I won't know who gets what until the cards are sorted into gift packs and randomly assigned to each person that made a request. Well, actually, I won't know exactly who gets what then either because I won't be rifling through the stacks looking to see who got what...

All I ask is that we play nice - only one gift pack per team per requester, please. Yes, that means you can ask for more than one team as they are posted. also, please REPLY HERE with your request. We'll get mailing addresses, etc as we go along. Oh, yeah, there is no time limit, just a 'space' limit. Gift packs will be mailed out in as timely a manner as possible - you should not have to wait too long for your free stuff to go out, even if you are the only responder! Likewise, if you are reading this at ANY TIME and there are spots still open, feel free to respond!

Naturally, I am starting with cards that are closest to my heart - Indians!

The first "Random Packs of Kindness" giveaway goes to the first TEN people to respond that they would like an INDIANS GIFT PACK!

  6. You know I'm always open for Tribe cards ! (if I'm not too late, my computer CPU is taking a stint on DL - I'm at lunch, at work right now checking all the week-end activity )I'm not picky at all, whatever you have left you need to purge.I'm still trying to find 3-4 more buyers for Card Collector.

    I wasn't sure if Bo was chiming in for Tribe or not, so I'll assume no unless I'm told otherwise....

  14. Did I make it in at #10? I tell ya. Almost missing out on this because I was busy at work, well, it just won't do. I think I might have to quit.

    I would love love love love more Tribe cards.

    (I can't believe you think it has been a long time since you've given out cards. You give out more cards than anyone else in the whole bloggerwebbything.)

    Your the best David
