Contest: I am Ripping !!!

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for your tips & thoughts in response to my last post "To Rip or not to RIP ?" After careful consideration I have decided to have some fun !! Yes, money is fun as well but I am not collecting wax for the money but simply to have fun and keep me (and maybe others) entertained !! Also, ripping a double RIP card is probablty a once-in-a-lifetime event so let's make sure I can cross this off my bucket list ! So let's have some fun and RIP this thing. As a reminder, the RIP card below is the one that will take some damage today, luckily it's just a Dodgers card (for all you Dodger fans out there :-)). From a positive perspective: After it being Ripped the Dodger RIP card is for trade !!


To involve everyone I am going to run a little contest called "guess the card" (yes, I came up with that title all by myself :-)). The double-RIP card can contain several things including, as far as I am aware, extended minis, metal minis, red mini autos, mini-rip cards and probably/hopefully many more cool stuff etc. I am hoping for a Kershaw, Glavine or Rivera 1/1 :-)

So leave a comment guessing both the team and what kind of mini it is. If you are right on both I am sending you a nice package with cards from your favourite team !

As a reminder, please examine the RIP card above closely, maybe the outside contains a clue for you (x-ray didn't work for me!). Gonna RIP it tonight and posting the contents tomorrow night (for you afternoon) so make sure to leave a comment before that time !!

May the luckiest collector win !!

  7. Double rip means two cards, so I am making two guesses:

    1) An extended mini of a Cardinal
    2) Metal mini from the Mariners

  8. An extended mini if Trout Angels and Cal Ripken extended mini

  11. A ext mini and maybe a mini rip card just so you can have another contest.

  12. I'll guess Reds though I don't even know if they have one in the checklist for that sort of thing.

  13. I don't know who is on the checklist but I'll pick my 4th choice since the three teams I thought about first were taken. OK lets go with a Royal. They don't get much love (watch it be a Ray or a Diamondback).

  14. I'm glad you decided to rip.

    My guess is Famous Firsts - Battle of Fort Sumter
