>Mailday: June 16


A couple weeks ago, I entered a Survivor contest on Card Collector’s World. The goal of the contest is just pick any MLB team that you thought would win on that day. Here were my picks from the contest and I also got a 2nd chance:

5/26 Red Sox
5/27 Diamondbacks
5/28 Rays
5/29 Blue Jays 
5/30 Cardinals Lost (But since there was only 2 contestants left, his pick also lost)
5/31 Tigers

The prizes from the contest were these autograph cards from 2010 Topps USA Baseball.

2010 Topps USA Peter O’Brien Autograph

Bethune-Cookman catcher Peter O’Brien joined the ranks of the drafted as the Colorado Rockies picked him with the 17th pick in the third round (107th overall) of the 2011 MLB Draft. The Wildcat junior from Miami Gardens, Fla. has more than earned the honor, leading the team and among the MEAC’s leaders in home runs the past two seasons, in addition to leading Team USA in the same stat during the summer of 2010. {Link}

2010 Topps USA Sean Gilmartin Autograph

The Atlanta Braves drafted Sean Gilmartin in the 1st round with the 28th overall selection.

Florida State pitcher Sean Gilmartin were named first-team All-Americans by Baseball America on Thursday. Gilmartin led the Seminoles with a 12-2 record and 2.09 earned run average. He struck out 130 batters in 120 1/3 innings and held opponents to a .209 batting average while leading FSU to the Super Regionals. {Link}
As of right now i’m going to hold onto these until they make it into the majors.
Thanks to card collector’s world for the contest!
