Christmas came early for Pewter Report subscriber Michael Coley as he was named the winner of the Pewter Report holiday sweepstakes.
On Friday, December 21, Coley was presented with Sports Art Illustrated's three-piece Tampa Legends Collection – a series of limited edition lithographs of Bucs linebacker Derrick Brooks, fullback Mike Alstott and cornerback Ronde Barber – from Pewter Report publisher Scott Reynolds and business manager Kim Roper.
"I would like to present the Tampa Legends Collection to you, Michael, as our sweepstakes winner," Reynolds said. "Congratulations, and thanks for subscribing to Pewter Report. We appreciate your support."
"Wow, this is great! Thank you!" Coley said with a smile upon receiving the artwork from Pewter Report at his Tampa residence.
When asked if he was going to use any of the three pieces of art as a Christmas gift for someone else, Coley said, "I don't think so. I think I'm going to keep them all."
Coley's name was drawn from a field of hundreds of entries from Pewter Report's sweepstakes during its annual holiday renewal campaign.
