I've been pretty quiet this year about the Topps Diamond Giveaway. While I thought that the idea was cool last year, I wasn't sure what to think of it this year with the addition of the rings, diamond diecuts, and diamond embedded cards. I guess everything turned out ok for me last year as I got all my cards in decent shape except I had to wait longer for my 1972 Topps Jim Palmer.
Since I'm not planning on buying anymore 2011 Topps cards and I've entered all 37 of my code cards, I decided to get my cards shipped to me to avoid the last minute rush of collectors cashing out there portfolios. Out of the 37 codes entered, I ended up with 8 cards being shipped to me. This was by design because the shipping charges are a little high so quality over quantity wins in my book this time. I traded away a lot of crap cards I had no interest in for cards that I really wanted.
The following cards are brought to you by the number 2 and the Baltimore Orioles:
2 positions were played by Mark Reynolds this season:
home run and strikeout. 3rd base and 1st base. I have a soft spot for Reynolds since I own his 136th career homerun ball.
