It’s that time of year again…

We’re busy prepping the 2010-11 cardboard awards issue of Beckett Hockey issue and we wanted to turn some of the nominee-naming process over to the collectors on Beckett.com.

Copy and paste the blank-slate ballot (after the jump) in the comment field to write in the products and players that you find worthy of these coveted cardboard awards. Weigh in on as many or as few categories as you’d like, and be sure to explain your choice(s) in a sentence or two — you might just find your name next to your nomination in the December issue of Beckett Hockey.
