2nd Annual Baseball Blogger Secret Santa!

That's right folks, it is time to begin the baseball blogger secret Santa. Or the sign ups anyway. Later than I expected as I got busy trying to write a Novel for Nano.

If you remember last year, or those that participated, you where matched with a fellow blogger through Elfster and then you bought a baseball related gift and sent it to them.

Well, nothing has changed.



There are a few other things I need you to do if you wish to participate.

First go to HERE (Elftser) and sign up.

I then need you to e-mail me your mailing address, the e-mail you signed up with for the secret Santa for Elfster, as well as a link to your blog or website.

It would also be great if you posted here saying that you have joined.

As to why I am asking for your address, it is because you would end up having to ask the person when you mail the gift, thus ruining the SECRET part. I promise not to share with anyone but the person who gets your name.

When you get your person, you will need e-mail me their e-mail/name and I will give you the address. (this will take placer later)

As you can see a lot of steps involved. Mainly for me, but I have no life so it should be well. I don't see an easier way. If you do let me know. Again, I WANT to do this.

Here is what I need you to do now

STEP 1:sign up for Elftser

STEP 2: Send me an e-mail with your

E-MAIL ADDRESS (the one you will use for the secret santa)



USERNAME/ ( or the name you tend to use on blog)


This will stay open untill names have been drawn on December 5th. That should be enough time for folks to sign up. Please be sure to tell fellow bloggers as I'd like everyone that wanted to; to participate

If you have any questions please let me know.


Please don't sign up if you don't think you are going to commit to buying and shipping a gift. It isn't going to be fun for the person you have to get jiffed

The gift should be under 20 dollars and that includes shipping.

No wish list. Do some sluthing. Check their blog out. I am not saying you can't get them something off their wish list if they had it up on their blog, just don't create up for the sake of SS.

120 cards vs 80 cards

and since two packs of those 80 cards are the black bordered ones that means 64 cards VS 120. At leats to those wanting to build a set.

I use to think that the blasters provided a better deal. However, I can get 10 lose packs with 12 cards each for the same price as a Blaster with 10 packs of cards with 8 cards in each pack. Topps 2010, series 1, I am talking about you!

What the heck its up with that? I don't get it. Why pay the same price for 40 less cards? Is it because of the OMFG patch card you can get?

...and enough with the inserts. 3 inserts in each pack is to damn many. I have enough of them to build a 12 story card tower. If you need/want any let me know. They are yours.
