Christmas Contest: Win My 2010 Topps Update Cards


If you would like to have these 110 cards [with some doubles] from 2010 Topps Update all you have to do is comment as to what is the greatest Christmas song ever. In the comment, leave me the song and group singing it. If you would like to leave a little justification as to why this is the greatest Christmas song ever it might just help your case but it is not a requirement.

To sweeten the pot, I'll also throw in this Clay Buchholz All-Star Workout Jersey as well.

Please leave me your comment by Thursday, 12/16 at 11:59 PM and then I'll see if anyone has correctly selected the the best Christmas song ever. If no one gets it right then the winner will be the person who came the closest.

Blue Xmas Elvis Presley. I love taht song

I love the Christmas hymns, like "Lo, How a Rose 'er Blooming" or "Of the Father's Love Begotten", but my favorite standard is "The Christmas Waltz", and a good version is the one sung by Karen Carpenter:

I can't lie just to have a unique answer, it is "The Chipmunk Song" by The Chipmunks. What happens in the event of a tie?

Even if there's no prize in it for me, that's the best Christmas song EVAR!!!!1111

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas - Gayla Peevey

White Christmas by Bing Crosby. It's a classic.

TSHenson said...

Silent Night by Boys II Men...one from my young teenage days that I still enjoy to this day.

dawgbones said...

the best IMHO... Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy duet by Bing Crosby and David Bowie, a great blending of two great voices with Christmas classics.

Another great song, Fairytale of New York by the Pogues, I love the Pogues.

My personal favorite is, "Baby it's Cold Outside" by Brian Setzer and Anne Margaret.

Frosty the Snowman - Willie Nelson

Frosty AND Willie!!!

Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy duet by Bing Crosby and David Bowie an unusual pairing that works greats

Merry Christmas, I Dont Want to Fight Anymore by the Ramones.

The Ramones and Christmas, they just go together.

Silver Bells for me. Dave, I play the dogs barking Jingle Bells to annoy my kids. Works every time.

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, by Bruce Springsteen. No particular reason, but when I think or hear a Christmas song, that one always comes up!

Oops, NightOwl already got the Ramones.

I'll go with Hating You For Christmas by Everclear.

RoofGod said...

"O Holy Night" by Robert Goulet, even Will Ferrell can't make me dislike that version.

I want those cards I want those cards I want those cards...

Run DMC; Christmastime in Hollis.

smedcards said...

Little Saint Nick - The Beach Boys.

Hearing Brian Wilson's falsetto in its prime is enough reason.

smedcards said...

But my favorite CAROL is "Angels We Have Heard On High". In Excelsis Deo, Yo!

'Merry Christmas Everyone' by Slade.
Best Christmas movie Canuck is Scrooged with Bill Murray.

My favorite would have to be "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch"...but not the original. I prefer the rocked-up instrumental version by Gary Hoey.

Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am4deQh8gXo

Paul said...

"You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch" covered by Sixpence None The Richer (because Leigh Nash makes it sound more fun)
