World Cup of Trading Entrant 22- John Miller

Today is the day to share the final of 22 entries into the World Cup of Trading courtesy of John Miller.  John decided he wanted to keep me in trading so he buried me lol.  He initially selected three cards.

He started out his return package with these beauties

He also sent this mass of cardboard
 A staggering pile
 Starting with some baseball. Joey Gallo anyone?
 I have O Pee Chee for days. Including my fave "NOW WITH" cards
 And I have the Leaf to boot
 Those Diamond Kings are sharp!
 Burn those tires
 Drop the puck
 Hoop it up
 The Power of the Warrior
 A huge fricken football stack. Twitter followers are going to love it
 All #ed
 All #ed
 Roll Tide Baby!!
 Gold Dix
Finishing it off with some Bama Ink

John really loaded up my trade coffers. And never fear. Even im not running crazy contests on my blog Im not completing getting out of the hobby.  Great job my friend!

Now the deliberation begins. 22 extremely great selections and this will be extremely tough.  All i can say is the winners will be announced in September.  I want to again say Thank You to everyone for all the great cards and all the fun on the blog over the years.  Good luck to everyone. After the WCOT is awarded i will wrap up the Willinghammer contest the blog will go dark except for occasional updates about my collection etc.


  1. Wow. That's a lot of cards! I look forward to seeing the results and it looks to be tough. Also look forward to our continued talks on Twitter my friend!

  2. John is the man!

    Sad to see this go dark, but I know we'll still swap some cards from time to time.

  3. I think I was like WCOT entrant #7, and at the time I felt like I had maybe an outside shot of finishing in the top 5 of those I had seen. Now, for sure, I'm an "also ran." LOL
    Jon's package positively provided a power-packed punch!
    The blog may go dark, but I'll still pick up every Hammer I find at a show and send it to Alabama. :)

  4. Got a couple more Hammers I've accumulated - will send them to you this week. And will continue to do so in the months and years to come.
