CONTEST CLOSED & RESULTS: Share Your Opinion & WIN
RESULTS: I asked random.org for two numbers between 1 and 39 (the total # of posts), to select the two winning posts. The numbers were 14 and 23, so uvaspina and neckababy are the winners. Guys, please get in touch with me to arrange your prizes. Thanks to everyone for your opinions, they'll help me make some decisions moving forward. In case you're interested, here were the players voted on most to get the boot from the collection:

1) Billingsley (15 votes)
2) Victorino (10 votes)
3) Haren (8 votes)
T4) Crawford (7 votes)
T4) Dunn (7 votes)
T4) Youkilis (7 votes)
T4) J. Johnson (7 votes)
T8) Belt (6 votes)
T8) Hunter (6 votes)
T10) Uggla (5 votes)

Figured it was about time I did a contest on here to give away some nice cards. I'll randomly pick two winners on from all entries on Thursday the 27th and each will receive 3-5 cards worth around $50 BV total. They'll include autos & GU, and will be based on the collecting preferences of the winners. It'll be a worthwhile prize...now for the contest.

- - -

One of my PCs is a collection of autos of some of the best current players. I've limited this collection to exactly 100 cards, and when I get a new auto of a player I want to add to the collection, the player/card in the collection I rate lowest is removed (Elvis Andrus and Tommy Hanson were recently dropped).

I'm looking for peoples' opinions of who should be the next 5 cards to get dropped as new cards are added, so take a look at the entire collection by following the link below, and post in the thread who you think are the 5 who should be removed from the collection next. A few of things to keep in mind:

1) The players chosen aren't just based on the current season, but for their career (that's why guys like Justin Morneau are there). But too many bad seasons and they can get dropped.

2) There are a few rookies and emerging stars in the collection, as I consider future potential in selecting who's in (though no prospects who aren't in the show yet, they're in a different collection).

3) The quality of the card/auto itself plays a factor. For example, Jon Jay might not be one of the top 100 players in the game, but he's pretty good, emerging, and it's a gorgeous card.

4) These aren't intended to be the top 100 players, as there are guys who I'm still chasing (like A-Rod). Once I get those other players, that's why I need to know who to remove next, so let me know who your bottom 5 are.

5) There are currently only 98 cards in the collection, as I'm awaiting Lawrie and Cespedes autos which will go into this collection when they arrive, so you can include those two guys in your deliberations.

Make sense? So again, look through the collection below and let me know which 5 players you don't think belong in a collection of the game's top current players based on the criteria above. There are no wrong answers, though I'll only be considering real answers for the contest winners.

Thanks all for your advice! I look forward to posting the winners on Thursday. Cheers.

Here's the collection:
