We’ve had a long but fun day here for the first (but certainly not last) run of Free Stuff Friday.

logoHow can you win what you see above? Follow the directions below and answer the questions below in a comment right here …  it’s that simple.

Tips: Don’t try stuffing the comments box — we’ll check IP addresses — and make sure to include your name and email address so you can be contacted if you win. (Also note that you will see your comment on your screen after posting but that doesn’t indicate its order of posting as it has not yet been approved. WordPress’ time-stamping of comments once all are approved will determine the winner.)

CONTEST NO. 10 — A Blake Griffin autographed photo courtesy of Panini America

1. According to, how many autographed cards does Griffin already have?

Hint: Look for this box…


2. How many players went before him in the draft?

The 15th person to correctly answer both questions wins. And remember to include your name and email address with your entry… or you will be disqualified.

Be sure to refresh — we’re giving entries with wrong answers the boot and approving those comments first.

Note: All winners will be contacted on Monday. Good luck in this one.

Next Friday: Win some Exquisite basketball cards… and more.
