Long Ball Licorice Contest! – NOW CLOSED

Long Ball Licorice has decided to participate in Sports Card Info’s 10th anniversary celebration.  If you’re new to Long Ball Licorice, you’ve got to give it a try.  Its a delicious new brand of licorice that comes packaged in a pouch to resemble chewing tobacco.  Andre Chiavelli is the creator of Long Ball Licorice, and was even able to secure a license from the Babe Ruth estate.  Check out their shop.

Long Ball Licorice was kind enough to donate (1) pouch of their product to use as a contest prize.  The winner can choose either a pouch of Long Ball Black Licorice or Round Tripper Red Raspberry Licorice.

Monty Sheldon Showcases His 2015 Topps Gypsy Queen Art

Monty Sheldon is at it again!  Check out some of the artwork he worked on for the 2015 edition of Topps Gypsy Queen.  This year he made (25) art/patch cards each numbered one-of-one.  These are some of the top tier cards to look for when breaking open your boxes.  Any one of these cards could easily be the centerpiece of your collection.

In addition to the art/patch cards, Monty Sheldon also worked on a (15) mini card set called “Basics of Base Ball”.  Each card in the set details a fundamental aspect of the game.  The printed versions should come 1:24 packs (one a box).  The original painted one-of-one “Basics of Base Ball” mini cards will also be inserted into packs of 2015 Topps Gypsy Queen.  Those can be seen below, and will be much harder to pull.
