Contest #11 - Matt Kemp Signed Photo, Cards and Whatever Else I Feel Like Throwing In

. . . It's time for another Dodger Penguin contest and this one will run a little differently than the others in the past.

First lets go over the prize(s). The main thing is this signed 8x10 photo of Matt Kemp. I received the photo on trade from a fellow blogger but the signature is in black ink. As I collect more and more I want autographs to be more and more uniform and this one black autograph conflicts with all the other ones that are in blue. Yeah, I know I am picky but that makes you the lucky ones as I am now contesting it out.

I will be also be adding at least 5-10 cards of the Bison as well. If you follow the blog you might remember that last week I blogged about getting out of the non premium/autograph portion of the hobby and now I have Kemp cards I don't need. Not sure which ones I will doing but if you look at the collection tab on the main blog page just take a look at the Kemp cards that are not autographs and at least 5 of those will be heading your way. 

I have been having major luck with BGS and eBay auctions in the past month so I will pass it forward if this blog can get up to 65 followers by the end of the contest. If it does reach that amount I will add an Allen and Ginter autograph of Matt Kemp to the prize booty. Keep that in mind so if you know anyone that is not following direct them this way to raise that number. 

At the end of the contest which will run through the 21st (Sunday) of this month all entries will be put into and I will then have it randomize the list 27 times. Now on how to earn entries.

1st - each day leave a comment on this blog post and you will earn one entry. So a max of 12 entries if you do that every day.

2nd - each day you may (and hopefully) retweet this contest on Twitter and that will also earn you one entry each day. Also a max of 12 entries.

3rd - I am going on vacation from September 10th to September 13th and I will be posting questions/pictures during each day and you have to guess what is in the picture or where I am at. It can't be too vague as well. "A purple building" is not good enough. You have to state what building it is. Yes, a little foot work is needed for this contest. How bad do you want the Kemp autograph(s)?

With that said the questions I post on Twitter MUST be answered on Twitter and whoever gives me the right answer first on my timeline earns the entry point. There will be at least 5-10 questions during 4 day period, so plenty of chances. 

I obviously will be posting as the vacation moves forward so once you know one thing/place or have found out by someone that answered correctly you can figure out what might be next. 

Now, with ALL THAT said here is the first question : 

Where am I heading?

Clue(s) - It's baseball season and my wife. If you read the blog it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Good luck to everyone and thank you again for reading the blog.
