Extra innings!

Time to check the contest scoreboard. Decided to use Kenny Roger's 1995 Score card, number 425, for the post. The card actually highlights Kenny's perfect game but it works just as well for this purpose since it features a scoreboard.

There were six entries in the contest. The answers ranged from a low of 1,848 cards to a high of 5,714 different cards in my Rangers collection.

As you may recall, the correct answer needed to be within 150 cards of the correct total. It could be either high or low but needed to be within that range. ( I suppose that strictly speaking that gives a 301 card range.) Sadly, none of the answers were that close. All were significantly low.

Because of this state of affairs the contest will go into extra innings! The deadline is now extended until my post on January 18th. That's right, a whole week longer. The same rules apply as the first time around and you can guess in this round without having guessed in the original round. I will give those who entered in the first round a bonus though, they can enter two numbers. So, if you entered in the first round, guess twice. If you haven't tried yet go ahead and give it a shot. Post your entries in the comments section of this post.

Good luck!

I don't know how I missed this the first time:

1. Nolan Ryan's strikout total x 2 = 11,428

2. Total Rangers wins x 5 = 14,585

9875 OR
16742. Whatever the answer is, it's a lot of Rangers.
