And I've been on it all but probably 2-3 days as well. No luck

Lol, just kidding guys, he doesn't get anything for all that work. Show some love and send him your spare Pistons cards.
I have been entering every day too and have not seen any familiar names except klarson.. Are we really that outnumbered?
BTW, I really appreciate the giveaway but there's one thing that kind of struck me. Because of the open entry (all members can enter) and random selection of the winner, for instance baseball fans are getting basketball items, hockey fans get baseball and so on. I understand that as a basketball collector you could only just participate on the days that a basketball item is given away, but would non-basketball collectors show that same ethic? (I say basketball but it could be for any sport) Ofcourse a freebee is a freebee so take it while you can. But what I see happening now is that those who win an item that is of a sport that's not of their interest, that item goes straight on eBay.
Perhaps it would have been a better idea if entry to the giveaway would only be open to members who have contracted the corresponding sport's price guide. First of all that would show Beckett's appreciation to those who are generating their revenue. It would also get the items to the appropriate collectors, either adding to their collections or stimulating trades through the Beckett system.
