    The "Social Distancing - Shelter In Place - I'm Lonely & Bored" Card Contest

    Here's the contest - show me a baseball card featuring a player sitting in a dugout all by himself looking bored. Whoever posts the loneliest, most bored looking player wins a prize package of that player, whatever I can find in my cards that's somewhat cool.

    Judging based on:
    - Loneliest, most bored expression - (0-4o points)
    - Distance from any other player in the photo - (0-30 points)
    - Emptiest dugout - (0-30 points)

    You can do up to 5 entries per person (in case you're bored and need something to do) and I'll let it run through the end of this week (5/29) with winner announced 5/30. I'll assign a numerical value between 0 and 100 for each entry based on my personal, highly subjective review of the judging criteria.

    I know I've seen cards like this. I looked through my Grace's and this was the closet example I could find. I want to see more empty dugout though.



    I'd give this card a score of 27+5+3 for a total of 35 points. Not that great.

    Let's see what you got!
