My Million Card Give-Away Loot

Well, finally made it home and I took off a little early because I wasn't feeling that all great.  I log onto the Topps website and do the million card give way code thing

Card #1

Ok, I'm not impressed.  1987 was great - for Donruss and Fleer.  Not so much with the fake wood-grain paneling around the card.  In other words, I'm not off to a great start:  Yay for Tracy Jones!


Card #2

Nice - MUCH better!  Other than the pre-war stuff I have (1909 to 1911), I don't own a SINGLE card from the 50's, 60's, or 70's (Although I do have a very nice Bud Padgett Remar Bread card - if you're a higher-end collector, you know what I'm talking about - I should do a post on that card - I think some of you might really like how I obtained it).  I actually like this card - kinda neat:


Card #3

Steve Avery, 1993.  This card is going out the door to a Braves collector whom can be found on my sidebar.  In fact, I think this was the last year that I bought cards before I quite the hobby.


Card #4

Sigh....another 1987.  Good god.  I'd burn every card made in 1987 if I could - or at least find a way to grind them all into some kind of pulp and recycle the freaking paper. I remember Dempsey as a kid.  Barely.


Card #5

Salazar.  From the 1988 set.  Which I spent all my lunch money completing.  I GAVE UP A LOT OF REALLY GOOD TASTING FUCKING CAFETERIA BURRITOS FOR THIS TOPPS SET.  Ah, regrets...to live and learn.  Never ever do a base Topps set again......


Card #6

Stan Williams - much better.  Kind of makes up for the 1987 Dempsey, BUT DOES NOT MAKE UP FOR MY LOST BURRITO FROM THE 1988 SALAZAR CARD!


Card #7

Tommy Helms - you know, I've always had a fascination with the black bordered cards - I remember as a kid seeing this at card shows, but most were beat up or in bad shape because of the black border.

Card #8 (last card)

Sigh...I give up...I'm putting the rest of these stupid cards up on Ebay or for trade. 

 

Ciao!

Half of yours were vintage? That's a great ratio. I only had 4/13 that were vintage. Nice pulls.

Yeah, you pulls were good too. I was trying to mathmatically figure out how to break the code....such a nerd!

How many more Millions cards do you have left unredeemed? What would you want to them for?
