Preview (AND CONTEST) of Save 2nd Base Event

With the current heat wave hitting New Jersey again, I can't wait for cooler weather.  I don't do well in 90+ degree heat and am hating this 92 degree weather everyday again.

Come soon October!!!!

The cooler weather isn't the only reason I want colder weather though.  (2019 Steelers Football is better than 2019 Pirates Baseball too)  It's also because I am looking forward to this year's Save Second Base Event.  This will be my fourth year (3 years on collectingcutch and 1 year on PiratesTreasureRoom) where I celebrate nothing but pink/magenta/peach cards for an entire month.

It is a fun month long event that I use to help bring awareness to breast cancer and hope that it grabs enough attention...
that some people go and donate to The Susan G. Women foundation.

I have plenty of cards to give out for this year's event and plenty of different contests to enter.  All contests will focus on the K or Second Base as we look to K Cancer and Save Second Base.

The first card I am going to offer up is this Troy Tulowitzki autograph.  Tulo announced his retirement from baseball about a month ago.  He finished his career with 225 HRs, .290 average, 5 All-Star games, 2 Silver Sluggers, and 2 Gold Gloves.  When people look back at the decade of 2008 to 2018, one of the first shortstops that will come to mind should be Troy Tulowitzki. He was elite on both sides of the field.

To win this card, simply say in a comment below who you think will be leading National League in doubles by end of the 2019 regular season.

Only National League teams qualify so any doubles hit by a player for part of a season with an American League team does not qualify.  (Sorry Nick Castelanos but all those doubles you hit in Detroit mean nothing now. )

Here are the current leaders

Contest entry closes September 1st.

Winner will be determined after the final regular season game is played. 

Must be a follower or frequent commenter of this blog/Twitter.

If multiple people select the same player, I will random off using random.org and hit the randomizer to an equal amount of people who selected the same player. (Example 6 people say Javy Baez and he leads in Doubles, I will random off 6 times).

If multiple players have the same Doubles total by end of season, the player with the fewest strikeouts on year gets the victory.

Let's K Cancer and Save Second Base!

As an added incentive anyone that pimps this contest ON THEIR BLOG linking to this entry will be randomed off to win an assortment of pink cards from this year's 2019 Topps Chrome.  Over 20 cards to win!

  1. I'm looking forward to this year's event - I'm planning a post of my own in October and hopefully a donation. I'll pass on Tulo but I plan to pimp the post by the end of the day.

    Just as soon as I can pull myself away from that gif...lol

  3. I'll go with Anthony Rendon - he tied for the lead last year, so let's see if he can go double on the doubles! I've got a post scheduled for tomorrow that I'll add a pimp to!

  4. I’ll take Corey Seager.

    BTW, Blowout Cards pulled a Cutch 1/1 from a box of Transcendent. I think it’s a group break where it will go to whoever had the Giants, but you can see it (and other 1/1 goodies at https://mobile.twitter.com/CheapFunBreaks/status/1164056394716340224

  5. Very generous prize, and looking forward to the month!

    This is a tough one - I like both Blackmon and Rendon...and I know some will pick the same player, but I'll be more original and say Trevor Story is going to come from behind and do it! One Rockies SS winning me an auto of another!

  14. Gotta go with Charlie Blackmon. Since the Rockies aren't going for a playoff push, he doesn't have that added pressure. Plus, he'll be playing 1/2 of his games at Coors.
