Scans of all 170 draft cards below. Need 3 more participants and we'll be ready to roll! Anyone who has signed up please prepare to send me a list by the weekend. It does not need to be a complete list but at least your top 25 to get things rolling...
-The Daily Dimwit
I recently participated in my first ever card draft over at The Diamond King. Kevin did an absolutely awesome job running it, and I had a great time picking out my cards and watching how the draft played out. In fact, I had so much fun that it got me thinking, and if there's enough interest I'm going to do my own draft here. That's right, it's time for the Shoebox Legends Card Closet Clean-out Draft! We'll see how this plays out, but here's what I'm thinking for rules, basically the same as the draft I just participated in:
- I would like to restrict the draft to 10 participants. Any more than 10 and I think the load gets spread too thin. The first 10 people to comment on this post will be in. Entry fee will be $22. You're basically paying the price of a blaster, plus $2 to cover shipping supplies and postal costs (especially since I have a feeling at least a couple of participants may be up in Canada). This will guarantee you at least 17 rounds of drafting, plus a couple of bonus rounds that will be cropping up here throughout the draft, another idea I'm borrowing from Kevin. Think of it as paying roughly a buck per card. I'd like all participants to come out of this feeling like they got some bang for their buck. All cards will be securely packaged with painter's tape and mailed in a bubble mailer.
- If $22 seems steep, I think you may feel differently once you see some of the cards. I've gone through my entire card room and purged through a lot of areas for the first time since I started collecting again nearly 6 years ago now. More than anything I'm doing this to clean out some space and condense a bit, so the selection is going to contain a mix of really anything that doesn't fit in my collection any longer. There are rookies, game-used, autos, Hall-of-Famers, parallels numbered as high as 2000 and as low as 10, chrome, blank backs, minis, you name it! The cards range from the '50s to modern day. The draft will reflect my collection, predominately baseball and hockey with some other stuff sprinkled in. You could probably do an entire draft of just Young Guns rookies, or draft only vintage if that's more your thing. I am trying to vary this so that there's truly something for everyone. Many of the cards have a book value of $5 or greater, and some have a book value close to the entire entry fee.
- The draft order will be determined by random.org, and will flip each round. So if you get the second overall pick for example, you'd go ninth in round 2, second in round 3, ninth in round 4, etc. In an added twist, I will allow trading between participants for a 3-day period after the draft completes. If both parties agree to a trade in the comments I will swap the cards before sending out the packages. Might be a good chance to flip that baseball card you didn't really want if you're a hockey collector, or vice versa. If you decide you don't want to trade, or are done trading, you can simply contact me and I'll mail your cards right away.

That's a wrap folks, some pretty fine cards in that lot of 170 if you ask me! Don't forget there will be at least 4 bonus rounds to go with the 17 rounds of drafting, so each participant will be taking home at least 21 cards total. Good luck and happy drafting!
If Grey Cup weekend does not leave too big of a dent in my wallet, I'm in.
I am interested, I haven't done one of these in a while and that looks like a nice mix of stuff.
Alright, nice. Trust me the best are actually yet to come. I'll try to get some more up tonight.
Wow there are some really nice cards there, and some not so nice. Sounds like it could be fun. There are a few cards there that catch my eye.
Sign Me Up.
Looks interesting. Sign me up.
Sounds cool, but I'm assuming there's not going to be much in the way of Basketball... That Sweet Lou Tall boy is sweet!
Squires32, you're pretty much correct. There will be two more tall boys from that same set, could maybe throw in a Shaq or two but don't have too much in the collection in the way of basketball...
Let's do it. Who doesn't love a draft? Sign me up!
Alright Squires32, you're officially slotted in! I'll try my best to look for some more basketball to include knowing you're taking part. I will have another big batch of draft cards posted this evening once I get home from work.
Just 5 slots left, if you guys know of anyone who may be interested please pass along the word!
count me in.
Squires32, I need an email address please! shanediaz82 at yahoo dot com.
Sign me up!
You got it, thanks! I've got you added on so you'll be in the next group email I send out. Just looking for 3 more now, I have 1 tentative at the moment...
