TRADE BAIT DRAFT 2: The Official Announcement (Now With a Prize!)

TRADE BAIT DRAFT TWO IS FULL UP! Nine people are signed up, now we figure out a date!

I'm raising the number of participants to 9 this time, with 88 "hits" available (plus the rest of my trade bait) thanks to Dennis and I pooling our resources. All hits are now listed on my trade bait page, so feel free to check out what's offered this time around to see if it interests you. This means that everyone in the draft will get an average of just under 10 hits, alongside any other goodies in my bait, for just the $20 delivered entry price. As an appetizer for those who haven't clicked on my trade bait link, here's some of my favorites among what Dennis is adding to the draft:
I especially like the Jones with the seams showing, but can't go wrong with a Dennis Martinez on card auto!

The most exciting change is the addition of a potential prize for the drafters this time around. If we get nine entrants, there will be one card in my trade bait that is tied to an unopened retail box of 2009 Upper Deck Series 1 (24 packs of 18 cards)!
We won't tell you exactly which card, but we will give a few hints before the draft as to its identity. If someone picks that specific card on draft day, they will win the box and will have it shipped to them along with their cards! If no one picks the card...well I haven't thought of anything to do in that situation yet, but I'm sure we'll think of something!

So there you have it - TBD2 is open and ready for applicants! Either comment here or email me to enter, whatever works for you, and first people to sign up are in! The price, remember, is $20, and the date, time, and location are currently TBA (it's probably easier to set a specific time/date/online place once we know who's actually taking part in the draft). And to those of you who don't make it in, remember that you are welcome to come watch the draft whenever it occurs!
