Tonight, the curtain rises on baseball's League Championship Series. To salute the 4 teams who made it thus far, I'm giving away pre-war cards to 4 folks who get closest to this question.
"How many TOTAL RUNS will all teams score in the ALCS and NLCS?"
This is every game from both best-of-7 series, even the easy-to-count, 1-0 masterpieces. No need to predict games or winners, just total runs! Can we believe the hype of ace pitchers blowing everyone away?
How do you qualify?
Add a comment to THIS POST with your guess. Entries accepted until MIDNIGHT PACIFIC TONIGHT, so you CAN wait for tonight's game result, if you think it'll make a difference.
Make sure to guess using a Blogger profile or leave another way to contact you, like an email address. Also, tell your friends! (Want to win without diluting your own chances? Tell your friends who are bad at math!)
What stuff am I giving away?
"Pre-war" means anything issued prior to World War II, so I'll pick from that era. This includes Goudey's famous sets, Play Ball, and candy cards. It's a good bet they'll be low-grade, but still 70+ year-old cardboard!
When will I give it away?
Once we know who's playing in the World Series, I'll total the runs and post a list of winners. Will people tie for 4th place and make me give away MORE cards?
