Topps Diamond Giveaway Haul #3: Now with Die Cuts!
Over the 10 months I’ve been somewhat busy on the Topps Diamond Giveaway site. During that time I’d acquired more than 60 rookie cards for my collection as well as some nice Die Cuts.
But alas, the Die Cuts have come home … along with some more rookies of course
We’ll start with the cardboard virgins (aka rookies) because I have to show these badboys off. Most are guys you’ve never heard of, but some of them have great names.
And now … the Die Cuts!
We’ll leadoff with the greatest lead-off hitter of all time, Mr. Rickey Henderson.
Batting second, another great lead-off hitter, Ichiro.
Every team needs and ace. The leader of my Die Cut staff is Tim Lincecum.
This next one proved to be one of the most popular cards on the site. Everyone loves a hot rookie insert. Welcome, Mr. Eric Hosmer.
The way I obtained this next Die Cuts is simply amazing. I turned two common Die Cuts into a 1953 Common, which was then swapped for a 1952 Common. That 1952 Common was then traded for a Jackie Robinson DDC, which then was traded up for this Cal Ripken … which was also a pretty popular card on the site.
And we close this edition of Topps Diamond Giveaway Haul with the man who made this entire shipment free because his card was a black die cut serial numbered out of 60. Welcome to the collection, Joey Bats!
