After several days of not getting any mail, I finally got a good bit today. I got some sportlots pickups, a trade and my first of two packages from Topps for the 2011 Diamond Giveaway. In the package from Topps were my Diamond Die Cuts, my 2011 set that I won and a free pack of cards from the 70s or 80s. I was lucky enough to get a pack of 1988 Topps. Whoopeeee!
Onto the Diamond Die Cuts. I really like these cards. I started off 2011 by unlocking a DDC of Bob Gibson and Thurman Munson. I flipped and flipped those two cards and ended up with 6 of them:
I was offered all kinds of things for this Hank Greenberg, but once I had gotten it for the Gibson, I held onto it because Greenberg was a beast! I am glad I kept it, that's for sure. The cards were a lot thicker than I thought they would be and they came with a protective film over them. I left the film on all but one of the cards.
The one DDC that I'm SURE I will sell of trade is this Ricky Romero. I tried to trade it on the Diamond Giveaway trade page, but no one was biting for what I wanted. Oh well, I know there has to be a blogger or someone at the card show who will want it.
