So here's the deal- of the 28 spots needed for the 1993 Stadium Club contest, only 14 have been filled. I will now change that number to thirteen, because I have recently realized how stupid it was to enter myself into my own contest. Therefore, the Yankees are now open. Any other budding Yankee fan that wants t win this, your time has come.
Anyway, that leaves 15 spots left. With this ratio, I was brought to an unwelcome conclusion: nobody likes 1993 Stadium Club. Sure, the inaugural set was pretty Colleen, and the 92 one was okay as well, but in 1993 the set wasn't as good. Therefore, to the fifteen open slots, and to the other bloggers who are afraid to enter, I am raising the stakes, by adding another box.
I went to the card shop again today, and the wax boxes were still there. The dealer said he'd make a discount since I already got a box a few days ago. So I looked around, and that's when I saw the perfect box, that I needed for this contest. S the dealer gave it to me for 12 bucks, half off the original price, and I skipped away with a grin on my face.
Here's the box: 1996 Stadium Club Series 2. Now, I know what you're thinking- how is this better than the 1993 version of this same damn product?!?!? Well, it has a lot more stars, more rookies, and more inserts. It's safe to say that this is less of a junk waxy product than the 1993 set. So it's the same contest, I'll be giving both boxes points, and the team with the most at the end wins all the team's loot, yadda yadda yadda...you know the deal.
