T206 Cy Seymour Giveaway Updates

Don't forget to read the rules and leave a comment here if you want to enter the contest.

Thought folks might want to know a little bit more about the stakes here, seeing as how Cy was a great player in his day. Cy began his career as a fireballing stirkeout pitcher capable of otherworldly bouts of wildness. As in, in 1898 he lead the league in walked batsmen with 213. That is not a typo, I wrote two hundred and thirteen. In baseball history, the only player with more combined wins and hits is George Herman Ruth, whoever that is. Cy was a .303 lifetime hitter, but only OPSed .752. 

There's also a great biographical write up from the SABR people here.

Enjoy, good luck, and remember:
