What better way to celebrate my 500th post than to give away a bunch of cards? None, I'm sure.
Don Pardo, tell them what they can win.
The lucky winner of this contest will take home these five great rookie cards!
But that's not all!
In addition, our winner will receive over three hundred Hall of Fame and star cards from Topps 1982, 1983, and 1984. Palmer, Bench, Ryan, Fingers, Yazstremski, Carew, Jackson, Rose, Schmidt ... the list goes on and on.
Thanks, Don Pardo.
OK, it's a contest so there have to be rules, right?
To start with, you don't have to be a follower though seeing your little icons on my list does appeal to my vanity. Most people come to Can't Have Too Many Cards to look at pictures of Marlo Thomas or Rene Magritte so if you're reading this post you're already on my good list!
The winner will be chosen at random based on the number of entries they have.
Any comment here gets you one entry.
Publicizing this contest on your blog gets you an additional two entries. (Comment with the link.)
If you're too busy, don't like guessing games, hate kids, or B&W pictures put you to sleep, you may skip to the comments area. You are excused. Good luck!

Most of us started collecting cards when we were kids, like the ones in this class photo. In fact, Hackenbush is one of the kids in in this photo.
Guess who I am and win five entries. Guess the year and win two entries. Guess how many of my classmates' first names I can remember and win another three entries.
This contest will run through 11:59 PM Central Time, Sunday, Oct. 10 and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
