This week's draft included a bonus giveaway. The person guessing how many managers would try to claim the Mickey Rivers Autograph card without going over would win a prize to be determined.
And... the winner is.. Play at the Plate! He guessed 24 managers and hit the nail on the head! Out of a total of 29 respondents, 24 asked for the Rivers card. Every single one of those folks asked for him as their first-round pick. I am only pointing that out because I thought it would be fun if someone saved him for later in hopes that somehow a later draft pick would land him. Yeah, yeah, I know in the current system it couldn't happen that way, but it's fun to play that way - in my head.
So, CONGRATS to Play at the Plate! I don't know what your prize will be yet, but I'll toss it in (and let everyone know so that it doesn't get lost in the stack of regular season cards).
As for the lucky manager who ends up with the cool Rivers Auto card? Congratulations Akgonzolyn! You scored the most sought-after card this season (so far)! WAHOO!!
Oil Can Byrd took second place for most wanted: 15 requests. We had one shut-out: Patrick Smith.
So, how did it all play out?
This is what the draft looked like before we started it up:
Then, we toss everyone into the randomizer:
After that, we put everyone in the randomly selected order for the draft:
And, after all the dust settled, here's what things look like:
Congrats to everyone who snagged players this week! I'll have the updated manager/player list posted soon. Then, later tonight we'll bust open a pack of 2013 Topps Series 2 Hobby. Of course, that will appear above this post so there is a chance you'll read that before this one. I guess it all depends on when you check in with things here at Tribecards!
