88 Topps Cards Giveaway #4: JACKPOT!

Here's giveaway #4, entitled Jackpot! in honor of card #100, Jack Clark.

This is a simple giveaway. I want to finish it quickly so we can move onto the next one, which is a lot more interesting.

The prize this time around: Cards 51 through 100 of the 1988 Topps set.
Click back through the last 50 posts to refresh yourself. Some of the highlight cards are Rickey Henderson, Ken Caminiti, Roger Clemens, Joe Carter, and Dale Murphy.

To enter, all you need to do is the following:
  1. Go to Jack Clark's Baseball-Reference.com page. Pick out any number appearing anywhere on that page.
  2. Add a comment on this post indicating your guess.
  3. While we're at it, why don't you also tell me your favorite team? For some of you, I know already (Steve comes to mind, heh.) I like to throw in a few extra cards when I send them out, so I'll try to pick ones from your favorite team.
  4. Post your comment by Monday, Feb 4, at 5 PM eastern.
  5. I am picking a number from Jack Clark's page, and the closest person to my guess wins. Averages count as decimals. For example, a .300 batting average is 0.3, not 300.
  6. If you win, I'll mail you the cards at no cost to you (not even a SASE!)
For those of you who haven't participated in a giveaway here yet, here's how it works:
  1. One entry per person. If you make more than one guess, I will count only your first one.
  2. This is basically a random drawing. You have no way of knowing what number I've selected, and so this contest can't really be tested for fairness. It's my blog, so just deal with it.
  3. My decisions on this contest are final.
  4. The contest closes Monday 2/4 at 5 PM eastern time. Comments must be timestamped by the blog before then.
And, as always, feel free to click some ads to help cover costs!

My guess is 127, Clark's career intentional walk total.

Thanks again for the batch of cards from the second giveaway.

Oh, I'm a Braves fan.

White Sox Cards said...

How about 27, Clark's home run total for 1982 and 1988. If it's a good enough number for Weird Al, it's a good enough number for me.

White Sox fan, of course.

LOL

Steve---White Sox? Really? I had no idea. :)

Don said...

My guess is 77, his career stolen base total. Favorite team is the Tigers.

My guess is 131. In 1987 that was an amazingly low number of games to hit 35 homers and walk 136 times.

Favorite team: Cardinals.

I am going to go with 1,300,000, the amount of money Clark made when he had his monster season for the Cards in 1987. I am a Giants fan, so I had the pleasure of watching Jack during his tenure there.
