Spot the Sig CONTEST Returns!!!

Back by Popular Demand it is Spot the Sig!

If you weren't around last year, Spot the Sig! was a Phungo contest which revolved around guessing the identity of an autograph posted on this blog.

Like last year, each Sunday Night I will post an autograph and open the comments for guessing the identification of the signer. Each auto or Sig will be attached a base hit value (Single Double Triple Homer). The first person to Spot the Sig will get the hit applied to their team.

The contest will run 9 weeks - I refer to each week as an inning - and the first inning will be next Sunday October 18th. Whoever has scored the most runs after 9 innings is the winner.

The winner will be awarded a beautiful prize package consisting of a team bag of cards (likely crap from the late 80s + maybe a few nicer cards tossed in).

I have heard that PTBNL will be back this season, however now he is going by PatSearcher.

Here is a look back at last seasons final standings:

PTBNL - repsresentin those Fightin Phillies - 9 Runs
Cardboard Junkie - Braves - 4 Runs
Night Owl - Dodgers - 3 Runs
Stats on the Back - Mets - 2 Run in
Card Buzz - Angels - 2 runs
Nachos Grande - Reds - 1 Run in.
Cardboard Addiction - Bosox - Stranded a Runner
A Cardboard Problem - Yankees - Stranded a Runner
Covered in Wrappers - Cardinals - Stranded a Runner


So warm up your Auto-Hunting thinking caps and we will look forward to seeing everyone next week - Generally I will attempt to get the postings up around 9:30-10:00 PM each Sunday.
