Topps Diamond Giveaway Haul #1

1976 Topps Kent Tekulve rookie card

Psst … did you know I collect rookie cards?  And not just the big ones either.

It’s never been so evident as it is right now.

I recently took delivery of two hauls from the Topps Diamond Giveaway site.  I still have another batch or two of items  that I need to “order” from the site, but I figured I’d start showing off what the virtual trading site has brought to my reality.

The beauty of the site is that if you spend enough time and effort you can get the cards shipped to you for free.  With any “prize” (free pack, Diamond special set, Black Diamond Die Cut, etc.) you can have 24 cards shipped to you at no cost.

I took advantage of this twice thus far.  Here is my first batch.  And they are all glorious rookie cards.
