Chesspieceface, I noticed your drawing has really brought all the old-time Card-Talkers out of the woodwork, including me, of course!

I've noticed that, and it's nice to see!
It's getting to where you'd have to be pretty lucky to win, which was my goal, but I'm going to have a consolation prize now, so I'll leave this open a little longer, since there will be two "winners". Get those entries in!

OK, we've got 22 entries by my count, so let's take 2 more entries after this post to get to an even 24 and I'll do the drawing.

(If I miscounted, don't worry, I'll still take the next two entries after this post). I'll also post a full list before drawing so everyone sees who's in and I can be corrected if I left someone out.

Basically once I have the entries, I'm going to write each of your names on 24 playing cards from an old deck, shuffle them up very well and I'll take the 8th and 20th card going down starting from the top to pick the two winners.

I like you all the same anyway, but this method of drawing couldn't be more random, so everyone will have the exact same shot, basically a 1 in 12 chance, not especially easy, but also not crazy hard.

So two more entries after this here update will be accepted, and then we shall all know who.
Good luck to all.

And I wasn't sure from the posts, but if either you two don't have set, NL and Harris, you are both totally eligible, so let me know if I should add you to list the list, and I'll certainly do so.

Thanks to barobehere and Starchild for giving your fellow members more interested in Mars Attacks a better chance to win by not entering even though you still could have.

Short of that, let me hear from anyone who had their entry in that I might've somehow left off the list.

Best of luck everyone! chesspieceface~ I was mainly posting to say that it was really nice of you to offer the set to someone who couldn't make Comic-Con.

I'll put you in the draw, buddy.
No one will mind (unless you win, of course!).

Ok, that's it. Winners here sometime this evening.

Good luck, all!

Ok, I did not know the winners myself until I scanned these cards face down about 60 seconds ago, posted the picture to photobucket, copied it, and then placed it here:




I wrote this post in advance to announce the winners as quickly as I myself knew, so congrats to whoever's cards appear in the space above. As always, the cards do not lie.

Congrats to the two winners, and sorry to everyone else. I wish I had sets for all of you.

The lucky two should send your address for your sets.

This just made me remember a pact I had with a very dear friend of mine. His name was Mike Cohee. he was a seller of Non-Sport cards for about 20 years. he even set up at the Philly show with Geary Kauffman once or twice at Bensalem. We always talked about going to the Comic-Con and we agreed that when I retired we would make the trip out! Well, Mike passed away about 5 years ago and I just retired late last year, so this would have been the first one we could have gone to together! I think maybe Mike had a hand in the cookie jar to help me win! Thank-you Mike Cohee and Chesspieceface!!!
