Contest Winnings from Napkin Doon's Big Fun Game

Last week, Napkin Doon of the infamous Adventures of Napkin Doon held a great contest - a no holds bar white elephant contest/giveaway. Similar to what many of us do in our office holiday party (or like they did on The Office), random spots were assigned by the Doon. You could either pick behind a random door, or steal winnings from another player who went before you. However, once a prize was stolen twice, it was frozen. And it got ugly. Stealing, trash talking, cussing, people breaking sh*t in hotel rooms Theo Epstein-style. Ok, not quite, but it was awesome! I'd also like to note that the cards were really nice...a few autos, relics, serially numbered cards of stars, an eTopps in hand just to name a few. It was quite generous of Nappy.

I was assigned the fifth spot. Before it was my turn, there were two autos and a jersey card on the table already. However, there was a lot of five 2010 Topps Pro Debut Blue Parallels. No Yanks were in it, but I love the set in general. I stole that from a fellow player (first steal of the game!), and no one stole it from me. I'm now the proud owner of these:

Nappy, thanks again for an awesome contest/game. He says he'll do The Big Fun Game (please, never ever change the name) again at some point in the future, and I encourage you to definitely play if you are lucky enough to gain an entry. It's a lot of fun.
