Finally...

I finally unlocked a cool Diamond Giveaway card:


I have pretty much zero interest in Brett Wallace, and I posted a trade for a similar card of Michael Young.

And guess what?  No sooner had I started this post, and looked on the website to pull images of the other crap I had uncovered when  looky what was in my collection!  Not 20 minutes after I posted the trade offer too:

So my first thought was "YES"!  My second was:  Did I just screw up?  Is there something about Brett Wallace I don't know?    I mean, that trade got accepted quick! I'm wondering if I am missing something?  I didn't trade away the Black Diamond version of the card, so I know that's not it.  Whatever, I'm freaking jacked about this Michael Young card!

I also got a couple of vintage a while back that I may try to trade into something for my collection, or just have delivered with the Young:






I should be able to turn these into something I would think....

So you don't have the Brett Wallace card anymore?

You did fine. I'd pick Young over Wallace too. Wallace has age/time/an unblocked starting position on his side now, but Young has had a damn good career and when it's all said and done I think Young's career will still look better. Chalk it up to attempted prospecting on behalf of the guy who traded you, combined with Young's rumored trade-ness in the offseason.
