Now that Million Card Giveaway seems to be drawing to a close, Topps has opened up its Diamond Giveaway, which in no way is to be confused with the Million Card Giveaway. So far, all I've been seeing on the blogosphere is old 80's and 90's cards. Let's hope I get something better.
Code #1- Mickey Mantle 1952-
Redeemed- 1974 Don Hood of the Baltimore Orioles. I'll take it. It's not huge, but it's not a Bip Roberts.
Code #2- Tim Lincecum Die Cut-
Redeemed- BLUHHH! 1994 Domingo Jean of the New York Yankees, Future Star. GYAAAH, WHYYY? It's a Yankee, but it's a crappy Yankee.
Last Code: Halladay diamond
Redeemed- 1974 Gates Brown of the Detroit Tigers. Not bad. If 2 out of 3 of my codes are 70's, I can deal with that.
In the year to come, I'll be monkeying around with this thing a lot more, and hopefully I'll enjoy doing so.
