We haven't bought a whole lot of 2011 Topps baseball, but we do pick up a few packs every so often. Last year we didn't redeem any of the Million Card Giveaway code cards. We traded them away. This year I decided to see what all the hoopla was about especially when I saw the die cut diamond cards. I wasn't really interested in obtaining a bunch of random cards from yesteryear, but the die cuts I'd seen on ebay looked kinda sweet. So I entered in my 7 codes and what do you know. I got 2 die cut diamond cards. Is that normal? I think probably not. Anyway, I was quite excited and immediately set out to trade them away. Here's the deal.

I must say I'm pleased with the trade. 2 dudes I don't care about for 2 of my faves. The die cut cards are pretty cool and look great in photos when the flash hits them. I dare say they are better in photos than in hand unless you get them into the proper light. Now I'm hooked. I need more code cards, though I'm afraid I may have reached my quota. I'm not sure pulling 2 of these things from every 7 code cards is very common. What do you think? Later.
