Spot the Sig! for January 4th 2009 - 1st Inning

I hope everyone has been enjoying the Spot the Sig! Contest. I have looked at the contest itinerary and figured out we are just shy of the half way point in the schedule. We have completed 7 weeks and 8 Autos (Huston Street, Francouer, J R Towles, Bob Feller, Kouzmanoff, Dallas Green - Frank Robinson, Len Dykstra) and have 9 weeks remaining. Since we have 9 weeks remaining, I will start referring to each weeks contest as an inning. So fret not if PTBNL has a 3 or 4 run lead on you. It is only the first inning of the game!

As far as this weeks Sig, I lied. In the comments to the previous STS! post I alluded to the fact that this weeks auto may be an easy one. Well I had to switch around the schedule and this weeks is now a bit tougher but I think it should be hit pretty quickly. I am going with Double here.


And now for the Bonus. In honor of Major League Baseball embracing modern technology and the MLB network going live this week, We are going the cartoon route again:



once again your task is to guess the card number. Closest to the pin wins the walk/single bonus. I will keep the bonus open for 24 hours.

I should start autograph hunting, just so I can get an edge in this contest.

My boss even kept me away from the computer last night, so everybody had a chance to steal.
