It's that time of year again!
Unlike previous years, there won't be two contests splitting the season. Rather, this one will be over the full season.
The winner will get his or her choice of option 1 or 2. If they choose option 2, I'll think a little less of them, but whatever.
Option 1 is a signed 1983 Willie McGee rookie card. If it's not wood-grain in actuality, it is in spirit.
Option 2 is a complete Topps set of the 2004 Cardinals. No wood grain here, either, but I think there might be some players in there you rooted for at some point.
As always, there's a prize for whoever does worst. The last place finisher gets a nice autographed card too. By "nice," I mean that the card is in pretty good shape.
You have until 11:59 PM on Saturday, March 30 to get your entries in.
