The boxes are ripped

You have until 10:00pm tomorrow to get in on the contest. In the meantime, I'll be finishing up sorting, scanning, videoing, writing, editing and uploading.  To enter, just ask these easy peasy questions about what you think will be in the boxes. Most number of points wins. I reserve the right to cut this off early and post stuff tomorrow morning if no one else enters. Happy guessing...

2009 Heritage High Series Questions:

5 pts: Name one player on the Heritage three card strip box topper.

5 pts: Did I get a buyback card? Yes or no.
     If yes: guess the player for a bonus 50 pts, or the team for a bonus 10 pts.

5 pts: Is the hit a relic or autograph?

25 points: Name the player on the hit.

15 pts: Did I get the Tommy Hanson short print which was the whole reason I bought the box? Yes or no.
5 pts: Name the player on one Chrome card pulled.

5 pts: Name the player on one insert pulled.

10 pts: Total number of Braves pulled out of the box. This includes both cards with Braves logos and current Braves with other teams (including minor leaguers).

2010 Obak Questions:

5 pts: Did I get a hot box?

25 pts: Name the team on the box topper.

10 pts each: Name 4 autographs in the box.
      100 bonus pts: choose a cut auto or a mini or one of the other case hits as one of the autos and choose the right player.

25 pts: Total number of Braves in the box.
       25 bonus points:  Total number of Heywards in the box.

Special Super Jeopardy question:  

Will I get a J-Hey autograph in the box?

If you answer YES:
If you are correct you get 50 points. Incorrect, you lose 25 points.

If you answer NO:
If you are correct you get 25 points. Incorrect, you lose 50 points.

If you don't answer at all, you're not much of a gambler, but a wise person.

If you need help, here's the checklists:

Current contestants:
Play at the Plate: First to guess Obak - 10 pts.
Don - First to guess Heritage High - 8 pts.
Hackenbush - For Obak shipping shenanigans - 6 pts.
Beardy - For being the first one to man up and gamble that there is a Heyward auto in my box. - 5 pts.
S - for picking Heritage High second - 4 pts.
BuckeyeState Cards - For picking Heritage third - 2 pts.

I guess I was relegated to a second shipment of Obak. My box is at a UPS center about 15 miles away and should be here tomorrow. Here's wishing us both a hot box (I guess you know about yours already).
