Million Card Giveaway Results

Not since the great Billy Ripken F#@* Face fiasco of 1989 has there been this much buzz about obtaining commons. Not that I'm scoffing. I was right there with the rest of the obsessives reloading the Topps site over and over waiting for my chance to complete a 1987 Topps set merely through these redemptions.

So what were my results? We'll count down in reverse chronological order. For those of you tired of looking at commons from the last 20 years, scroll down a bit.

Not the most amazing haul and certainly no huge scores, but I was pretty excited to see a couple of cards from the 70s show up, so then seeing a 1960 and a 1956 were just awesome. 1956 Topps is easily on of my favorite baseball card sets ever, so getting a card, even of a very marginal player, is pretty sweet.

Go Halos!

  1. Bob Oldis looks a little like Hoggle from Labyrinth. And Bud Podbielan is a cross between Bing Crosby and Sloth from the Goonies. Still, anything vintage is a nice showing in the giveaway as far as I'm concerned.

  4. Good stuff (obviously a hundred times better than what I got). I have that particular '56 card. I'm trying to picture my reaction if I redeemed that particular card and having it already. That would be something.
