I regret that I was not as clear as I should have been regarding the Contest Question in the current issue of NSU. Here it is, restated.

Only 5 manufacturers have released at least one promo card for over 100 different series of trading cards.

- Can you name the manufacturers?
- List them in descending order by the number of series (possible tie breaker)
- Promo sheets, sell sheets, promo panels, toys etc. do not count
- This is not a trick question. Limit your counts to only series released or announced over the past 20 years.

What can you win? Good question! Read my column. Smile

Good Luck

I considered entering - but figured since I am an NSU employee, I would be disqualified. Anyway, I could only think of 4 manufacturers - and had no clue as to what order they'd be in.

This was a tough one -

My bad! A winner was determined (actually 2). The results will be published in the next issue. (another shameless attempt at forcing people to read my column).

I have not notified the winners yet but I will in a day or so. All entrants will receive something so it is a matter of contacting everyone and making sure that I can dig out what I need (before making contact) in consolation prizes.

The consolation prizes will be of the convention Promo persuasion too. Smile

Perhaps Ed can tell us now that he has copies of the new mag.
