Since I haven’t mentioned in awhile and it’s all I’ve got handy, here is where I currently stand in the Diamond Giveaway. I’ve managed to score several Diamond Die-Cuts via random vintage trading, and have finally landed a few keepers. Behold, for I now have a screen grabber!
Not bad. And if you’re wondering how I have 46 cards, I let go of the second Carlos Santana for 14 vintage cards because I was about out of trade bait. A few of those netted me a Brian McCann Die-Cut which shortly thereafter landed me 31(!) more cards from 1973-1985, including several stars (one keeper- ’76 Dick Allen) and a Cub.
I peaked at 52 cards, but seven of them landed Aramis over the weekend. So despite all the randomness, there is a method to my madness, and these are the rest of the Diamond Die-Cuts I’m after:
I also have a secondary list of players I’d like to pick up any of (for various reasons) if possible. These would be my main priority from the secondary list:
Mark Buehrle (for my dad)
Carlos Santana (3rd time’s a charm, right?)
Hanley Ramirez (still flirting with the idea of collecting him on occasion)
Andrew McCutchen (ditto)
I’m not sure I have anything anyone wants, but if you’ve got any of the above on the site (or any others really, whatevs, I’m not too picky or in a hurry or anything) and want to swing a deal for my random, mostly ’70s nonsense, and if you can find me… maybe you can hire– Wait, ha. I’m game.
So that was a pretty boring post, but at least I had some pictures this time right? Right?? Anyway, next time, a “Look for Vintage” Fairfield pack that didn’t suck.
‘Til the crossroads…
