This is a multiple winner contest. This time we're doing a trading contest, and we'll have a list of prizes, and the top winner gets first choice of the prizes, second place gets second choice, and so on. I've set aside a dozen cards from my collection for this contest, and may add more if we get a lot of people interested. I'm going to try to keep the rules simple, and the contest will run for the month of August. Starting August 1st (trades done prior to August 1st won't be counted). The Rules: Each trade is worth one point. The value of the cards involved with each trade must exceed one dollar Each party in the trade must leave a Trader Rating You must post about the trade in a reply to this thread for the point to count This contest is meant to help build up the community here, so trades from other forums shouldn't be included. How would I know if you did a trade on another forum, then posted it here? Well, I wouldn't unless you posted bout it in public on another forum. I also want to get people using the Trader Rating system. So, leaving an honest rating about the other party to the trade is an important part of this contest. Trades involving cards of value under a dollar are allowed where the total value of the cards in the trade exceeds a dollar. For example, if you trade five cards worth a quarter each, that exceeds a dollar. Not that it's worth the price of postage to do a trade like that, but it's allowed for the contest. The prizes will be shown in photos below, in the second post to this thread. In the case of a tie where both winners would like to choose the same card, we'll do a coin toss. Midnight Eastern Time is the deadline for all trades to be entered in the contest. In the event that cards are still in transit before the deadline, the member should post the trade to this thread anyway and a reasonable amount of time will be given (up to one week) for the cards to arrive and Trader Ratings to be given. For the purposes of this contest, a "trade" can be cards of equal or unequal value traded with or without monetary consideration give, buying or selling cards, or even giving away cards as long as the total value of the trade exceeds the minimum. Multiple trades between the same two members will be counted as one point.
