This time next week I will be active in my 4th Annual Save Second Base Event (3rd on this blog).
For the 3rd time on Collecting Cutch I am running a contest to help bring awareness to a terrible disease that continues to plague our great world.
1 in 8 women will be detected with breast cancer in their lifetime. This is heartbreaking to think that we haven't found a cure or what causes this terrible disease.
To help bring awareness, I will show off pink (and shades of pink including peach, rose, and magenta) cards throughout the month of October. October has long been associated with breast cancer awareness and every day throughout the month I will be showing off some lovely ladies to accompany the pink (and shades of pink) cards I have.
Each year I have upped the game for sharing pink cards.
Year one was only Cutch cards.
Year two I introduced cameo appearances where Cutch was represented on either the front or back of a pink card.
Year three I am introducing the Falco Files pink cards. This will depict pink cards of players who have replaced McCutchen on a roster.
I have decided to show SOME nonCutch cards in my collection that can relate to this cause and a few of the ladies I have chosen to spotlight to relate to the cards selected.
This year I will be providing multiple contests leading up to the event.
I have already ran a few of them and another is scheduled to end on Sunday when we know who the NL Leader is in doubles.
Each year I run a contest with "Pick Who Hits The First Double in the 2019 World Series" prize.
Tris Speaker is the all-time leader for doubles so getting a bat relic from the All-Time double leader and Hall of Famer seems appropriate for a prize. This 2016 Pantheon dual relic of Tris Speaker and Sam Crawford is numbered 8/15.
The rules for this prize:
1)First person to correctly guess who will hit the first double in the 2019 World Series gets the card
2)All entries must be time stamped the day before game 1 of the 2019 World Series starts
3)Must be a USA resident
4)If the person who hits the first double is not guessed then the card will be randomed off to anyone who shared this contest on their blog (you must leave a link to the shared post in comments below).
Gavin has won the past two main prizes.
2017 event - Pete Rose: Save 2nd Base Inscription Autograph (here)
2018 event - Aaron Judge/Giancarlo Stanton Mother's Day Pink Awards/50 (here)
Can anyone stop Gavin from a 3-peat?
