Default THE sometimes Annual Clydepepper WORLD SERIES Non-Raffle Give-Away- enter by 10/21

Welcome to my world again.

YOU GUESS ; I GIVE

This year I am presenting two oversized Autographed cards featuring Stan 'The Man' Musial and Johnny 'The Blue Emu Guy' Bench.

Dimensions of cards:
Musial - 8x10
Bench - 9x 12.5

Adding the following two oversized Autographs:

2011 Historic Autographs Legends of the Hall - Rick Ferrell - with original box
2012 Historic Autographs Legends of the Hall - Don Sutton - with original box




HERE ARE THE RULES:

Entrants are asked to guess the total number of Home Runs hit in this year's World Series AND the total number of Strikeouts during this year's World Series.

The winning entry will be the closest guess to the combined total.

First Tie-Breaker is closest guess to total number of runs scored by both teams in the World Series.

Second and Final Tie-Breaker will be the first posted guess.

NO edits allowed.

ALL guesses must be posted by 10:00PM Net54 Time on Monday, October 21 (that's midnight eastern time).


Any questions?


GOOD LUCK & Happy Swishing!

There would be something horribly wrong if JerBruns doesn't win tonight. Lowest combined number so far has been in the high teens. But I can still wish!

Go Nationals!

Wow!! What a game 7!! Blessed and very lucky to squeak out a win in this contest. Took till the bottom of the ninth and two outs to win!! Again, thank you so much for doing this contest!!
Was so bummed when my Yankees lost out, so this is a very cool consolation prize!!

WOW! Even this giveaway came down to the wire.

Until Altuve struck out for the 26th out, Todeen would have won in a tie-break.

Congratulations to JerBruns!!!


- and all that participated...it was fun!!

As my mother says, close but no cigar! Congrats JerBruns. We are cheering nonetheless, Nationals are my wife's favorite team. Her first MLB game was in DC in 2009 accompanied by her boss, Mickey Ibarra (former cabinet member of Bill Clinton).
