More Diamond Giveaway Magic!

I'm still bouncing off the wall about getting a Michael Young Diamond Cut Card on the Diamond Giveaway promotion.  I liked it so much, I thought I would try to scrounge up all the other cards I had online and see if I could somehow trade them for either an Ian Kinsler or Nelson Cruz di cut card.

Long story short, look what showed up in my portfolio today:

Call me butter, because I am on a roll!

Basically this cost me a bunch of commons and a 1958 Bob Hazle.  I can pretty much get any of those cards on sportslots for nothing should I ever decide I really need them.  I would have not gone to the trouble to have those shipped from Topps (shipping would have cost more than they were worth anyway).  But I will have no problem paying a few bucks for these Kinsler and Young beauties.

Now I just need more codes so I can try to get a Cruz and Josh Hamilton.  Ah, Topps has me in their clutches as always....

I think you made a good offer! No one has come close to offering me a 58 on my Matt Cain diecut. Glad you got your Kinsler.

Nicely done, Nappy. I've been trying to unload my cards for a Yanks die-cut, but nothing so far. I've started offering lots for other die cuts as well, hoping I can at least get one of those and maybe turn it into a Yankee.
