It's STILL time to play...CAPTION THIS CARD!

Aw, come on, you guys. The original post has been up for almost 2 weeks, and hasn't gotten a single response? Do I have to get Thorzul on the case? We've got a contest going on here, which means "free stuff"! One more time, folks...

Write a caption for this 1959 Topps Larsen-Stengel "Words Of Wisdom" Card. Favorite entry, as chosen by me, gets the prize package posted below (more items to be added throughout the month of December). It might not be amazing stuff, but I think it's fun stuff and hey, you're only required to come up with one line of funny to win it, right?

This contest opens now and ends December 31st, 2010 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. One entry per person, no creating pseudonyms to try to win or I will end you.

And now, the full prize package, updated as of 12/22/10!

A well-loved '72 Topps Broadway Joe!

A slightly less well-loved but still cool '74 Topps Dwight Evans!

The mighty '73 Topps Oscar Gamble!

'87 Topps Mini Blyleven gettin' funkay! (Note: actual card is well-loved.)

'10 Topps Update Runnin' Vlad!

'10 Topps Update Jim "Man that guy is huge!" Thome!

'10 Topps Update ZOMG TEH PUDGE!

'10 Update GOMES :D

Weirdo Whitehall Collection Hologram Set, including Cy here, as well as...


The Babe...


...and Honus friggin' Wagner. Oh yeah, this too..

(Just a reprint, kids, don't have a heart attack, but it's included!)

And a weird Photoshopped, standard card-sized version, for you Wagner reprint mega-collectors.

2010 Absolute Memorabilia Tom Brady (I hate this guy...)

'87 Topps Gorman Thomas (you knew I had to include one), home at last...

Little Bobby bunting! Yep, for those who can't read silver lettering on scans, it's a prospect card of Bobby Abreu from 1994.

"I got mad hits, like I was Rod Carew!"


Amazingly, this is currently my only duplicate copy of Roberto Alomar's rookie card. It's still about three too many, but your mileage may vary!

Yep, that's Cal. It's a well-loved '82 Fleer Cal (capturing the condition of the corners wasn't happening easily, but I can assure you that they're worn), but it's still a friggin' Cal Ripken, Jr. rookie card!

And finally...

'10 Absolute Memorabilia Football White Monolith Of I Hate You Panini, I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! Not an ordinary decoy card, though. This one will be personally signed, numbered 1/1 and, if you like, drawn on or inscribed by me! Goth girls would've paid good money for this 20 years ago, but it's yours along with all the other prizes for the low, low price of being wittier than the other 3 people who've come up with a caption for the following 1959 Topps card:

Seriously, though. Two posts about this (now three), the link all over the place, and only three entries so far? I read a lot of your stuff, and I know you folks are really, really funny. Get to work! Let's see some entries! Post your caption for the Larsen/Stengel card here or on the original post!
