PPP Charity Trivia Contest - The prize and draft post

We made it through 15 of these things - now's the fun (I hope) part.

I have recovered some sense of equilibrium post Game-7 and am now able to rejoin humanity (though I'm taking this round of the playoffs off). As such, let's let all our participants choose their well-earned prizes!

First, thanks to everyone who took part. I hope it was fun. I learned a lot about trying to set up these things and if we do another version next year, it should run more smoothly. I'm sure that TAS and Sarah Connors appreciated the help as well.

What we're going to do is have a draft. It will last n rounds (where n is an integer valued approximately 5, pending final confirmation of how many people entered but never submitted answers - updated before we get started) and will run in order of final finish.

Final Standings

1. Grabovski's better than you think - 14

2. Sknut - 11 <- now identified (hooray!) but I still need an address)

3. Cornelius Hardenbergh -3

4. Death_By_Leafs - 2 <-- won the extremely sophisticated best-3-out-of-5 coin toss.

5. Joanie loves Chachi - 2

6. Learn2Leaf - 1

7. magecanuck - participation medal. :) <-- also won the extremely sophisticated best-3-out-of-5 coin toss.

8. Chappy35 - participation medal. :)

However

Not everyone has sent me an address and not everyone has necessarily made their donations. Now, some of the data is mismatched, so it may yet all work out.

Complete and ready to go: Learn2Leaf, Grabovski's better than you think, JoanieLovesChachi, Cornelius Hardenbergh, Chappy35, Death_By_Leafs, Sknut

Missing address data and confirmation of donation: Sknut

Donated but has not sent information and I have no idea who this is: lacie t.

Donated but has not sent me an address: magecanuck (Someone find magecanuck and wake him up)

How the draft will work

When you make a selection, list the number, year and card (i.e. #18 - 1974-75 Lipton Soup Bobby Clarke), so I can figure out what you're talking about. When we've finished the draft, I'll pack 'em up and ship 'em out to the address you'd better have sent me. :)

I will have the enjoyable task of making sure that the picks are done in proper sequence. We'll have to figure out how to deal with the fact that not everyone might be available at all times. This might drag over a couple of days or more.

Now, on to the good stuff!

In my opinion:

Oldest card: 1955-56 Parkhurst Jim Morrison

Highest dollar-value card: 1955-56 Parkhurst Jim Morrsion (~$15)

What would have been the highest dollar card had OPC had a clue how to cut it: 1975-76 OPC Bobby Orr - would have been ~$40 in NM - MC with crease, I got it for ~$3 plus shipping.

Best baseball card: 1980 Yaz. That was easy.

Best card of a player you've never heard of: 1965-66 Topps Paul (really Poul) Popeil. Really nice shape.

Best cartoon: 1969-70 OPC Wayne Carleton - thumbing his nose at Punch Imlach.

Best stats: 1975-76 OPC WHA Gordie Howe AS. Every year from 1945-46 - 1974-75. Cool.

Best Seal: 1971-72 OPC Bert Marshall

Best card cut from a soup box: 1974-75 Lipton Soup Bobby Clarke.

Anyhow, on to the pics!
