Birthday Contest! Help Me Celebrate Another Trip Around The Sun!

Along with Al Pacino, Tim Duncan, Ella Fitzgerald, Oliver Cromwell, Edward R. Murrow, Renee Zellweger, and Joe Buck, today is my birthday! Even without this fact, April 25th has also been officially selected as the best day of the year. 

And so in honor of my taking another trip around the sun, I've decided to hold a birthday contest. The winners will win this group of hits, with a chance for more cards if we are able to get a lot of people involved in the contest. 

I remember receiving a lot of trading cards on my birthday from my parents as it was close to the release date of the Topps flagship sets during my younger days. So to enter this contest, leave a comment on this post sharing a trading card gift you've received (it doesn't necessarily have to be for a birthday). What did you receive? Was it great?  Was it disappointing? 

You have until the end of the day on Thursday, April 28th to enter the contest. Shortly thereafter, I will randomize the entries and a winner will be selected. The five relics pictured above will be given to the winner but if we get more than 50 entries I will add more to the prize pool. Here's how it will break down:

1-50 Entries: The group of five relics pictured above.
50-75 Entries: An additional 20 vintage cards from the 1960's and earlier.
75-100 Entries: An additional Hall of Famer autograph.
More than 100: Even more cards! Details to follow.

So please spread the word about the contest as it could be worth your while! Share the link on Twitter or maybe do a brief blog post about it if you have a card blog. Good luck!
