All-Time Cardinals Team Tournament Challenge – Win a 2011 WS DVD Set!

by Pitchers Hit Eighth on March 23, 2012

If you’ve been following UCB member blogs Aaron Miles’ Fastball, C70 at the Bat, I-70 Baseball, and Pitchers Hit Eighth over the last week, hopefully you’ve been voting in the All-Time Cardinals Team Tournament.

Starting today, you’ll be able to find the Sweet Sixteen match-ups at those blogs as we wind down to the Cardinals team that you all vote as the greatest in history.

Now that we’re down to sixteen teams, the choices get tougher – the champions match up with the champions – and we’re going to sweeten the pot for you.

Courtesy of A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions, the 8-disc 2011 World Series Champions Collectors Edition DVD Set contains each game of the 2011 World Series in its entirety, plus a bonus disc including highlights of the Cards’ improbable championship season.

We’re going to give away THREE of these sets to folks following along with this Tourney!

How do you win, you ask?  Simple.  First, keep visiting the regional host sites and voting through to the last four teams – when the voting will move to this site.  As for participating in the contest?

Post three things in the comments below:

  1. Which Cardinal team you think will win the tourney?
  2. Who will be the runner-up?
  3. How many votes will the winner receive?

Hopefully with those three things, we’ll have enough to distinguish three winners – based upon closest picks to actual.  If your runner up made it further than someone else’s, you win the tie-breaker.  If you and someone else both choose winner and runner-up, the closest guess to votes received wins the tie-breaker.

Click here for the full bracket if you need a refresher to make your picks.

One entry per person, no ballot stuffing (and we have ways of tracking and controlling these things!), and enjoy watching the rest of the tourney unfold!

Now get to voting at the sites above this weekend and don’t forget to post your entries below!

I’m terrible at this sort of thing, but why not give it a try?

1. Simply because Cardinal Nation is still on a high from it, I’ll guess that 2011 will win the tourney.
2. The 106-win 1942 team strikes me as the one which will finish second, in a close vote.
3. I have no idea how many people will vote on this, so I’ll guess the winner will receive 37 votes.

I’ve gotta go with the Sixtys teams both were/are amazing. If the 2011 team didn’t have to go up against the 1967 team in the Final Four they would have had a great chance at winning the All-Time Championship. Since the 1968 Team is in the other bracket, they will make the run to the finals. It comes down to 1967 versus 1968 with the 1967 Team winning the tourney easy.

Champion – 1967 Team
RunnerUp – 1968 Team
Total Votes – 47

Good luck to all!
