Contested Shots 18: A Contest for the New Year

I've won a few prizes in contests over the last year and I've been the target of generosity from other bloggers, so I thought it was about time to hold a contest of my own and give back a little bit. I've got some prizes that I think are pretty desirable. This is a pretty simple contest. All you have to do to enter is state which prize you prefer in a comment on this post, and you're entered. I'll close it down in a week, so on the evening of January 8th at some point. After that I will randomly sort the names on the list 4 times and assign the prizes based on the list. The first name on the list will win the prize they have expressed a preference for, and the last name on the list will win the prize that remains.

And now, the prizes:

The first prize is this 2012 SEGA Card-Gen EX card featuring Ichiro. It's a pretty cool card, and I recently acquired a duplicate copy. Unfortunately I did not acquire a duplicate of the case the card arrived in, so the case won't be included in the prize package. Here's what it looks like, though:

I was hoping that a couple more of these would come up for sale, but they haven't yet. Maybe the seller read my previous post about this next prize and caught on to my game.

This prize includes a card and a case. The card is the Yu Darvish 2012 SEGA Card-Gen EX card, which I posted about a little while ago. I picked up a second one, and someone will be winning it.

This prize does come with the card case. If you want more pictures of it, you can click the link in the previous paragraph.

And that's it. To enter, all you need to do is post a comment below, stating which prize you would prefer to win. Good luck!

Prize #1: 2012 SEGA Card-Gen EX Ichiro
Prize #2: 2012 SEGA Card-Gen EX Yu Darvish w/Card Case


  1. Thanks for the contest. I'd choose Ichiro!

  2. Thanks for the contest! Gotta go for the Ichiro, though I'd still be very happy to wind up with the Yu.

  3. Both cards are cool but I will continue the trend and pick Ichiro

  4. Why not add another Ichiro to the list.

  5. Thanks for the contest. I'd definitely prefer the Ichiro.

  6. Closing the contest now. Thanks for your entries and good luck!
