Here it is, folks! CAPTION THIS CARD II!

For those of you who played Round 1, you know the score. For those of you who didn't, catch up here. We're gonna go quick and dirty here, with the contest starting now, and a single winner being chosen by me after the deadline of 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Thursday, March 31st, 2011.

Without any further ado, here is the card I'd like you to caption!

Write a caption for this Pacific Ryan Express "Great Friends" card. Favorite entry, as chosen by me, gets the prize package posted below (more items to be added throughout this week). I'm not sure how the prize package will measure up this time, as I don't have too many Ripken rookies laying around and that was a first contest here, but I'll do my best and will add to what you see below throughout the week as I find cool stuff. 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 March 31st, 2011 (Thanks, Mark!) at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. One entry per person, no edits allowed (check carefully for typos and put your best foot forward on the content side), and no creating pseudonyms to try to win with multiple entries or I will end you.
Without any further ado, the prize package, as updated on 03/27/2011!

One 1970 Topps NL Pitching Leaders card, featuring 4, count 'em, 4 Hall Of Famers and 2 300 game winners!

One 1976-1977 Topps New York Islanders Team Card!

One 2010-2011 Upper Deck Victory Brandon Yip Rookie, courtesy of Upper Deck, even though they gave this to me for winning a contest, rather than to include in one!

One letter from Upper Deck proving that this card came from a NPN contest!

One 1/1 super awesome vandalized decoy card personalized to the winner, and drawn on by yours truly!

One gen-u-ine Babe Ruth business card from our pal Gary Cieradkowski!

One slightly miscut (because it was probably hand-cut) Infinite Baseball Card Set promo card of Mr. Frankie Zak! This is also, obviously, courtesy of our pal Gary Cieradkowski!

One completely awesome 1976 Topps Traded Dock Ellis card, courtesy of The Lost Collector!

One 2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Cole Hamels card, courtesy of Things Are Funner Here!

One 2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Dick Allen card, courtesy of Things Are Funner Here!

And finally (for now), one creased as hell but still awesome 1974 Topps Steve Garvey card, courtesy in a roundabout  way of Night Owl Cards, who sent me a much better one this week in a trade!

Again, all you have to do to win all this fun stuff is come up with the best caption, as judged by me, for this card: 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Thursday night, 03/31/2011!

Get to work, you lugs!


  1. Hmm...who's the yahoo in the suit? I thought we was here to honor a ballplayer.

  2. Tell me this, Jimmie, if were such great friends then why do you look like you're about to strangle me with my own necktie?

  3. "So, is that a pitch counter in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
