OK, time to start assembling contestants for our 1990 UD High # Challenge. This is going to be a tournament-style competition where each of you will be assigned one card. The card that wins the poll as the best in the set shall determine the winner, and the winner receives this entire set.
Right now, we have polls up for each post of 4 cards, paring down the number of cards for the tournament from 100 to 25. We still have 8 more posts to go to run through all 100 cards. If you want to vote in past polls, please look at the Blog Archive over on the right. Any post that starts with "1990 Upper Deck" contains a poll at the end that allows you to vote on that set of 4 cards. Please take a few minutes to go through and vote if you haven't done so already.
Once all 25 semi-finalist cards have been decided, I am going to put them in a particular order, using a system that I will reveal later (it might be card number or alphabetical order, for example.)
Here's what you do to enter: add a comment to this post, picking a number between 1 and 25. Make sure that nobody has picked your number so far. Later, when I order the cards, you will be assigned one of the 25 finalist cards, and it will be your job (if you wish) to argue on behalf of your card to try to get it to win the reader polls and the tournament. Note that if you want to enter this contest but not bother arguing for your card, you can do that (but it probably decreases your chances of winning.)
As a fun little extra, when you pick your number below, can you relate it to some piece of baseball trivia, such as a stat or uniform number?
