They're Here - Contest results and 2nd chance contest

The package arrived, but nobody guessed correctly. There were a lot of guesses that were on the right track, but no one got it exactly right. I won't keep you in suspense anymore, here's the swag:


2010 Tristar Obak

Since no one guessed, I'll give you guys a second chance now that you know what you're dealing with. Answer the following questions. Whoever has the highest point total from answering correctly wins. Prize: A couple of relics and autos and a pile of cards from your favorite team or set. Your favorite set cannot be Ultimate or 1952 Topps or anything crazy. Got it? Good. Here's the questions.

Heritage 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.

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

Don: Ruling on the insert - either player on the T&N counts. So Maris it is. Also - By Braves I do mean minor league affiliates of the Braves, so Durham Bulls in the '80s counts.

Canuck: Tell me about it. I posted this obliviously thinking that it was just a sprain, hopped in my card and heard the news on the radio. Been offline since 12:30 'till now so I haven't had time to put on the sackcloth and ashes yet.

Beardy: You sir, have cojones. Five points for Gryffindor.
