And the winner is…

Congratulations to “Biagio” for pulling off quite an upset. You see, according to WordPress he had only left two comments before the contest came so his name was only entered one time into the list. Talk about an underdog beating the odds!

As for the video, I have to thank Joey of Squeeze Play Cards for recommending Random.org and insisting not to waste so much paper on the hat drawing I normally do. Maybe next time around I will go back to the hat drawings but for now this is the best way to go about it for me.

Thanks to all who participated and good luck next time around.

“Show Your Hits”, Contest, more…

The contest ‘Halfway to A Million’ is officially closed. There was over 100 comments left and over 150 entries to win the lot of cards. I will either be writing down each contestant’s name in a paper and drawing from a hat or trying the randomize website which is heavenly used in group breaks. I haven’t decided yet so let me know what you guys would prefer. I will be shooting the video either late tonight or late Saturday night. You can view the post HERE.

I am going to be starting a new feature at Wax Heaven called ‘Show Your Hits’ where the reader can leave a comment with a scan of a card they pulled. There is no reward for the best hit, it’s just for fun and because people love seeing what is being pulled from boxes. Also, if you pull something truly special that you plan on throwing up on eBay let me know and maybe I could write something up for it, depending on what comes to my head. Again, this is just for fun so don’t e-mail me asking to write about your Paul LoDuca certified autograph #’d to 599, it’s not happening.

Finally, I am considering adding someone new to the Heavenly Seven and would like some feedback on who your candidate would be. Right now I am looking at Night Owl Cards and Dinged Corners but would love some recommendations. The only real requirements for being on the “Seven” is that your content be 90% or more about trading cards and that you update a couple of times per week.

You can find all the different card blogs in the Sports Card Blog Directory.

Wax Heaven Contest #3

It’s that time again when you the reader has an opportunity to win a game-used & autographed trading card lot provided by Upper Deck. This week belongs to Upper Deck Black Hockey and Upper Deck Basketball. Along with the cards you see in the scan, there will also be a bonus basketball autograph. The winner of this contest will recieve the entire lot but if you win, make sure you are ready to claim your prize otherwise it be included in next week’s football contest.

To enter the contest, you must leave a comment in THIS THREAD no later than Sunday, November 2nd by 12:00 P.M. I will hold the drawing on Sunday night and will do my best to get it uploaded the very same night. If not, it will debut on Monday morning.

Stay tuned this weekend for the conclusion of ‘Operation Wax Heaven’, a new episode of ‘The Baseball Card Show’, a ‘Card of the Day’ feature on my newest, most-awesome Andrew Miller card, which you can preview here. This bad boy from 2008 Topps cost me less than $5 dollars (including shipping!). Finally, make sure to check out my latest article for CardboardConnection.com, which you can find HERE.

Yeah, lots going on at Wax Heaven as usual. Good luck to all who enter!

And the winner is…

Stay tuned for a VERY special episode of ‘The Baseball Card Show’ tonight.

As for the winner, he will be getting both the Ballpark Collections & Masterpieces lot due to the fact that last week’s winner was a no-show. If you are reading, please leave me your e-mail address with your Upper Deck account so I can contact you and send you your package.

Next Friday will be a contest for the entire lot of Hockey & Basketball hits.

Thanks to all who participated!
