1996 Topps Laser #105

Cecil's last (half) year as a Tiger...



And the winner is...

Congrats to Steven for correctly answering yesterday's trivia question and subsequently winning some 2011 Topps cards! Steven, please email me with your address so I can send you out your prize. Thanks to everyone who participated!

The correct answer was Blue Jays, Tigers, Yankees, Angels, and Indians. Grand Cards, I have been searching for the past month or so trying to find a picture of him in an Cleveland uniform to no avail. I'm almost positive there are no official cards of him in one, but somebody had to of snapped a photo. Media guide? Program? Oh well, it would look weird nontheless.

Thanks again everyone and stayed tuned for a Cecil card tonight.

Cecil Fielder Trivia Contest: Prize and Rules

Tomorrow afternoon we're gonna give away some free 2011 Topps cards, specifically, a 2011 Retail Hanger Box from Target. Just a little thank-you to the people who follow the blog, and of course an obvious way to rack up a few more followers ;).

New followers (meaning those who join after this post) will get 1 entry in the drawing, and those 18 of my original followers who participate will get 2 entries in the drawing. Please only 1 entry/answer/comment per follower. I will use to choose the winner.

Hopefully this will be the first of many contests here at TC-TCFCOTEOD (OK, maybe not many but more than a few!). See everyone (I hope) tomorrow! In the meantime, here's a nice little blurb on Sess from
