2017 Topps Collector Of The Month Nominees

Well, all I can say that this was a bit of a disappointment. I am actually quite shocked with the great prizes that were going to be available (two that were in the lot already had $60+ BV with more on the way in 2017) and the promoting I did for two weeks that ONLY 6 entered.

To enter it was simple. All I needed was a picture of your favorite Topps card or your Topps collection. It was up to you. You were even allowed to use props to help your photo gain votes by being creative. There was going to be 11 monthly winners and a big winner at the end. But, only 6 did this. 6. I am not sure if I will get over this for a little while.

Because of this sad low turnout, I mean it's not worth my time and energy for 6 people, I AM DISCONTINUING THIS CONTEST. THIS WILL NOT BE GOING FORWARD AT ALL. THERE WILL BE NO FEBRUARY OR COLLECTOR OF THE MONTH/YEAR CONTEST PROMO IN GENERAL.
I will have however, a two day vote, STARTING today, for the individuals that did enter. The winner will take home some cards that weren't claimed in past Topps contests. Those that entered can spread the word however they would like to get people to vote for them.

The poll for this will be located off to the right of the blog just above my Top 12 Wants(use web version if on a mobile device). It will run for the rest of today and and end on Monday. I will announce the winner sometime next week depending on when I get to come back on here to type.

Thanks to those that did enter and here are the ones you are looking to vote on.

YOU CAN VOTE FOR MORE THAN ONE. In case of Tie Breaker, I will be the deciding vote that will be done through a random of three times.

  1. I really wish more people would have entered. I am dissapointed as well this would have been something very fun. FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR. Thanks for all your hard work. Look forward to future blogs!

  2. I didn't take part because Topps does not have the license for any of the sports I collect, sorry the idea didn't work out.
