eCon 6.0 Goodie Bag

eTopps holds a convention every year, and this year's was in Chi town. I did not get to go, but I made a contribution to the cause. In return, in today's mail was a package from eTopps. My 'home version' of the goodie bag!

What was included? For starters, a box of 2008 Topps Series 2 baseball cards! And, since this *IS* APAD, I would not feel right if I didn't post at least one of the packs on here:

Kevin Slowey (Twins - Is this really a good name to have a pitcher?)
Rajai Davis (Giants)
Tom Glavine (Braves)
Asdrubal Cabrera (Indians - WAHOO TRIBER!)
Adam Everett (Twins)
Ted Lilly (Cubs)
Erick Threets (Giants - hmm, notice a pattern here?)
Alex Cora (Red Sox - No relation to Kat, I'm sure)
Frank Thomas (White Sox - Year In Review - 500th HR)
Topps Town card (6PWZ856 - have fun!)
Marlon Byrd (Rangers)
Chase Utley (Phillies)
Reggie Willits (Phillies)

What else was in the goodie box?

How about a canvas print of the eTopps Superbowl Heroes card of Terry Bradshaw! The actual image part (that is, not including the white border) is about 16" by 20"! It looks fantastic when rolled out. I'll have to get that framed for sure!

There was also an eCon T-shirt, an eCon baseball cap, six eTopps National Allen&Ginter Yankee Stadium Tribute cards, a Travis Wilson auto card and a Chris Davis Topps DPP Senior Bowl Game-Used card. VERY cool stuff in deed!

What sort of contribution did you have to make to get all of that cool stuff?

I think it was $50. I basically said I wasn't going to the convention but wanted to help pitch in (when you register, that's one of the options). I wasn't even sure if I would get a goodie bag (they are not guaranteed for non-attendees), so it was a great surprise. :-)
