I am ecstatic to announce that Wax Cracker has partnered with Steel City Collectibles to bring to you all a March Madness Bracket Challenge!  Sean and I have cooked up a challenge that no sports card collector should miss.

March Madness is almost upon us!

Here’s the deal:

If you think you can beat me, the Sportsman, at my own game and have one of the Top 3 brackets (after any tie breakers), then Steel City Collectibles will hook you up with one of the following three Hobby Boxes:

1st place: 1 box 12/13 Upper Deck All Time Greats Basketball Hobby Box

2nd place: 12/13 Panini Momentum Basketball Hobby Box

3rd Place: 12/13 Panini Brilliance Basketball Hobby Box

Steel City Collectibles has helped me lay down the challenge and backed it up with some damn fine prizes!  AND just for entering, Steel City has given me a special discount code to share with all participants.  Who wants to have a chance at winning some nice Hobby Boxes and take home a discount code just for participating?  You have no excuses, the Sportsman and Steel City are on the court with the challenge and backing up our game.  Stop shooting bricks and posterize me for talking smack.  Are you up for the challenge? Do you think you can make chump meat out of the Sportsman? Then put your bracket where your mouth is and show us all how a perfect bracket looks.

Here is the link to the bracket challenge sign up page at ESPN.com (you’ll need to sign up for an ESPN account if you don’t already have one):


Then search for group name: Wax Cracker/Steel City. I will share the link to the challenge on Facebook and Twitter as well if you want the direct link to the challenge page.  You can go ahead and get your position signed up for and then return once the bracket is officially announced by the NCAA.

Does anyone have any questions?  The set up is simple, pick the best teams, the team with the best mascots/cheerleaders/team colors/etc, and finish in the Top 3 while trying to take my bracket down as well.

Challenge accepted?
