Topps Diamond Giveaway....Ho hum.

It's been a few days.  I've been busy and haven't had anything to say so I didn't.  But I got home yesterday and found a nice box waiting for me.  It was my swag from A Cardboard Problems Series 1 Jumbo Case break.  I didn't get anything too exciting.  I didn't get a hit, which was a bummer, but did get 5 team sets, a bunch of inserts and a few sparkly Brewers cards.  There was also a bunch of other stuff from a trade Marie and I worked out for my Cano Leather Name Plate and Diamond card.  But I also got 2 Diamond Giveaway cards in the break and seeing as everyone was starting to throw codes in I figured I'd throw these 2 in to see what I got. 

My first code wasn't bad.

A 1973 Sam McDowell card.  I ended up getting quite a few 1973 cards from the Million Card Giveaway and it's a classic set.  At least I should be able to trade this for something I might like better.

Then I got the typical second cards

1991 Dave Hollins.  Who?  Yeah.  I looked Dave up.  He was in the majors for 12 years with 7 different teams. 

On a side note I went and had Topps ship me the rest of my Million Card Giveaway cards I wanted.  I just picked everything 1975 and before and then accepted every trade I had on the remaining cards.  You're welcome.  I also did the same thing with my Gridiron Giveaway cards.  Why do I feel so ripped off from Topps.  Their shipping is worse than COMC.  But I digress.  I didn't have to ship my cards to me.  I will say this for a "free" card giveaway it sure seems expensive.

  1. I agree CB. Topps is really screwing us over in shipping charges. I've got 3 cards coming from the MCG program and that's it. The rest of the cards sitting in my portfolio will just sit there until the program ends.
