It's Wimbledon time, or the best time of year for tennis. Wimbledon is the king of kings when it comes to tennis tournaments. I'm completely in the tennis spirit.
So, after selling some items on eBay and browsing the DACardWorld clearance pages, I bought, in addition to my Gint-A-Cuffs box and other items, two cases of these 2007 Ace Authentic Straight Sets retail boxes.
That's right, I went crazy and bought 2 cases.
Each case has 20 blasters, each with 7 packs (4 cards per pack, 1 Material card per box). I also qualified for some DACardWorld free items, and opted for 6 more boxes. All together, I will have 46 boxes.
Each box has 4x7=28 cards plus one Material card. Of the 28 cards, one will be a bronze parallel and one will be an insert. That leaves 26 base cards. For 46 boxes, I will end up with 1,196 base cards. The base set consists of just 50 cards.
Here's where we get down and nerdy. I wrote a code that randomly filled 1,196 spots with a number from 1 to 50. That would simulate a completely random collation of cards. I then searched the random array to see how many sets of 1-50 I came up with. I then repeated the process 10,000 times.
Consider yourself lucky if you have stuck with this post to this point. I'm going to give you a chance to win a complete set, and maybe something else.
All you have to do is guess the answers to these 5 questions:
How many complete sets will I get?
What card will I get the most of (checklist here)?
How many of that card will I get?
Who will win the Men's Wimbledon tournament this year (draw here)?
Who will win the Women's Wimbledon tournament this year (draw here)?
Who ever gets the most correct answers wins. Of course, if you don't win, we can always work a deal for a set, as I will likely have several to trade. You have until Wednesday night at 5:01 pm to enter.
