8.20.15 Dodger Penguin #walletcard Contest Update and Standings

Contest just started but I wanted to give an update plus how future updates will come about.

I will post the pictures that were used in the contest here in a "timely" manner and show who earned the point or points for said picture so there is no discrepancy on the winner. IF for some reason there is and you think you have a claim to a point that was assigned to someone else please bring it up to my attention and I will look into the matter. At the bottom of this post will be the continuously updated standings.

Obviously this post is pretty bare for now but by the end of October it will be full of pictures. Once again, good luck to all and have fun.

Couple days ago I was trying to win a pair of glasses for my wife and these 3 good friends/supporters tried to help out by liking my FB post and even though I didn't win (as I stated I would award a point to each person that helped out if I won) I am going to award a point anyways. Derek stated just give his point to Jesse (which I did) but I still think he deserves one so he gets one anyways. Thank you again guys.

2 points awarded to Aus

When I do my post in a couple weeks showing off the autographs that will be in the contest there will be another added to the pile. A total of 8 now. Aus picked up an autograph at Dodger Fanfest but didn't want it so he donated it to the contest so I have given him an extra 2 points for his generosity. No I am not playing favorites, if you want to do the same I will award you the same amount.


2 points awarded to Luis

Going forward and until the end of the contest I will award 2 points to anyone that does a trade with me whether it was initiated by me or you. An extra little bonus for everyone. I like do trades so please contact me if you see anything you like in my trade bait or collection and have something you think I might like or need.


I had forgotten to hand out the 2 points each trade I have done since February so this is just me catching up. Sorry about that everyone.
