Contest winnings from Rain of Error!

Not long ago, fellow card blogger Mad Guru asked for custom cards based on Robert Coover's novel The Universal Baseball Association. I adapted a 1976 Topps Father & Son card, since the book focuses on just such a relationship.

The recently arrived winnings for this contest!

1. Season of the Owl, by Miles Wolff, Jr. (A mystery set in the home town of a Southern minor league champion.)

2. Lots of #5 cards! A few will get individual entries, so here's a scan of the others.

Clockwise from upper left, they are:
  1. 1990 ProCards Las Vegas Stars
  2. 2008 Upper Deck Baseball
  3. 1990 Score Highlights
  4. 1989 Donruss Baseball
  5. 1990 Topps Hockey
  6. 1988 Topps Hockey Stickers
  7. 1982 K-Mart MVPs
  8. 1987 Topps Hockey
  9. 1987 Topps Hockey Stickers - Gretzky!
Thanks again to Guru for running the contest. Check out his blog Rain of Error for more on books and baseball!
