Contest: Trivia for Yankees Stadium Legacy Cards
Thursday, May 15, 2008
As a thank you to all of you faithful YC readers (or those of you that accidentally stumbled upon this here bloggity, I love you too), I have some groovy prizes to bestow upon you!

Upper Deck has released an awesome set of cards in honor of the last year at Yankee stadium, and the kind folks at UD have given me a heaping helping of the cards to give away to YOU! Here are the details about the set:
The Upper Deck Company, the industry leader when it comes to creating innovative card sets, is releasing the largest baseball trading card set ever produced. The “Yankee Stadium Legacy” collection, a 6,661-card compilation celebrating every single New York Yankees home game played at the famous “House That Ruth Built,” began its official debut in February by being inserted in random packs of Upper Deck’s 2008 Series 1 Baseball release.

With the old Yankee Stadium playing out its last regular season this year before the Bronx Bombers move to a new ballpark in 2009, Upper Deck decided it was a terrific opportunity to acknowledge the incredible history and happenings that have occurred at Yankee Stadium since its doors opened in 1923. Besides chronicling 85 seasons’ worth of Yankees home games (this season’s games will be included in Upper Deck’s 2009 Series One Baseball release next February to complete the set), this enormous compilation also includes some of the most famous sporting events that have taken place at Yankee Stadium including: legendary Notre Dame Football coach Knute Rockne’s famous “Win one for the Gipper” halftime speech inside the Yankees locker room (Nov. 10, 1928); the Baltimore Colts’ 23-17 overtime victory against the New York Giants in the NFL Championship game, which is often referred to as “the greatest game ever played” (Dec. 28, 1958); and Muhammad Ali’s title defense against Ken Norton (Sept. 28, 1976).

In addition to the enormous accomplishment of collecting the complete set, Upper Deck is giving fans and collectors another reason to find cards from the historic set! Consumers can register the codes on the back of the Yankee Stadium Legacy cards at www.OwnTheLegacy.com to be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win once-in-a-lifetime Yankees prizes. Some of those include a trip for two to this year’s MLB All-Star Game; trips to the last regular-season game in 2008 at Yankee Stadium; and trips to the first 2009 regular-season game held at the new Yankee Stadium. The more card codes entered, the better one’s chances are of winning.

The www.OwnTheLegacy.com website includes a card management system that allows collectors to track their progress on completing the set, as well as message boards where collectors can share their personal Yankee stories with fellow YSL card-collecting enthusiasts. The site also includes the comprehensive YSL Checklist, which shows all 6,661 game cards within the set as well as seven “special moments” cards from Yankee Stadium that Upper Deck has included.

What dost thou have to do to win, you asketh me? It's easy as pie, lovelies. Simply send me an email with the answers to the following trivia questions by Thursday, May 22nd at 11:59pm PDT and you shall be entered to win!
