Month Winners

I completely forgot to do this post earlier so I'm very sorry to anyone who was waiting for it.  Today I am going to announce some of the contest winners, but before we do all that let's look at a celebrity and see if we can connect her to an Andrew McCutchen baseball card.

Today's focus is Jessica Simpson

The singer turned actress famously married Nick Lachey
 and appeared on the tv show The Newlyweds and was portrayed as a ditzy blonde

America has seen her grow up in front of us.

In addition to song writing and singing she has landed a few roles as an actress.

Her most famous acting role was playing Daisy Duke in Dukes of Hazzard
It was a reboot of the franchise and was intended to have some sequels.
Unfortunately they couldn't get any of the stars to return for a sequel, so the studio made a prequel instead and it didn't do very well at the box office or with fans.

Jessica also starred in the Dane Cook comedy Employee of the Month
She was the new girl hired by a big box store and was rumored to always go after the Employee of the Month.  
It's a comedy with some romantic elements, but mostly focuses on Dane Cook being a slacker, Jessica Simpson being hot, and the guy who played Pedro in Napoleon Dynamite still not saying much and being a sidekick.

Andrew McCutchen has a long resume of accomplishments and as discussed on the back of Andrew's 2018 Topps Heritage, he was NL Player of the Month for the forth time in his career for the month of July 2017.
The front of this card is the black chrome refractor and features a nice pink circle.

Now for the winners of prizes for contests I have run thus far.  All prizes will ship in November.

For the magenta printing plate there were 10 entrants to leave a comment on the post before it closed.
I then began to random it off until I got to four times as promised in the post.
Grant was on top after 1 click
Then Daniel
Then John

And finally the Elliptical Man was on top after the 4th click.  Congrats on your new Shaun Valeriote printing plate.

On Tuesday we saw Justin Turner hit the first double of the 2020 World Series so that means All Cardinals All the Time won the Cody Bellinger Mother's Day jersey relic from 2018 Topps Tribute.

Now here is the contest winner everyone 
has been waiting for:

The Babe Ruth Stadium relic
I neglected to mention limit 1 entry per person in the original contest rules so anyone that had posted multiple comments with links to their posts got more than 1 entry.
In total there were 17 entries
The Diamond King was on top after the 1st entry
Spyda-Man was on top after the 2nd

And The Elliptical Man won another one!!! after the 3rd click

On a completely unrelated note, this blog and all the comments has generated just over $300 to go towards breast cancer awareness.  I will need to review everyone else's pink posts to see all the comments made.  I think we will hit the $400 capped goal.  Thank you all!!!


  1. Congrats to the winners. Man was so close on that Ruth!! But also so last lol.

    And employee of the month was a great movie. I own, seen it, quote it. Very underrated

  2. I always feel really smart when I consider the subject of this post! Nice McCutchen card. Threw me for a loop showing the back of the card first. I was so thrilled as the other day I got my very first pink card which I showed off on my blog yesterday:

  3. Thanks for the trip down memory lane with Simpson, and congrats to the winners!

  4. Congratulations to E on the wins! As for today's gal, let's just say I'm glad that she's not as relevant as she used to be :)

  5. I remember the whole Chicken of the Sea thing with Simpson. Never really looked at her the same. As for the contest... thanks for inspiring so many pink posts. Great cause.

    P.S. Congratulations Elliptical Man!

  6. She was so "good" in Dukes of Hazzard. Some great photos you shared.
    Always liked her ditzy and all. Great post. Congrats to the winners.

  7. $300! Great Job to all the awesome bloggers who comment on each post, and congrats to the winners of the pink cards.

  8. Wow. Thanks, man.

    Adames finally hit a double in the 8th inning of Game 2. Ha.

    Jessica Simpson was Tony Romo's gf for a while.

  9. Congrats to the winners, and a big kudos to you for the generous donation to charity! I'm sure you'll hit that $400 mark!

  10. Congrats to the winners! I was gonna go with Turner but was too late. Haven't seen neither movie, but young Jessica Simpson was mighty fine.

  11. I remember one time seeing her do a live performance in a low cut shirt and bending far forward. Made an impression on me for sure. Think was on jay leno show but may have been nba all star game.

  12. Never really knew what to make of Jessica. Her latest kid's name is Birdie. Don't know what to make of that either.

  13. Thank you for the fun. That first Jess pic is awesome.

  14. Your donation and encouraging others to donate is awesome! Congrats to the winners and well done to you.

    1. Also, somewhere I have a 2001 World Series program signed by Jessica Simpson. She sang the National Anthem before game 6. It was part of a small lot I bought on eBay a few year ago.
