Four runners-up were chosen to receive W.R. Case prize packages which included a Case knife and country music CD combination, a Case-branded ball cap and t-shirt. They were: Henry Adams (Bradenton, FL), Bobby Addington, (Stanley, NC), David Bough (Indianapolis, IN), and Patrick Coss (Sartell, MN).
Wilson, who has been collecting knives made by the 122-year old Case Company for decades, said the Case Tang Stamp commemorative “is by far the best thing (he’d) ever won.” A recent post from Wilson which appears on the Case Collectors Club members forum reads, “This isn’t just a set of knives or a grand prize in a contest, this set has a history that started long before my hands ever touched it.”
Wilson was given his first Case knife by his father at the age of 16 and has carried one with him ever since. He’s been a member of the Case Collectors Club since 2006.
