For a guy who started a blog to post trade packages, that's not too shabby.
Yesterday, I completed my 110th trade on the Topps Million Card Giveaway site. It was for another 1956 Topps card, but I'll save that for another day.
I noticed that this card had been unlocked.
Some lucky stiff bought a two dollar pack of cards, or maybe a blaster, value box or retail box and redeemed his code and had to go nuts when he saw how the card gods had blessed him.
Can you even imagine owning that card?
I did a quick search of the trade offers that had already been made for the Mick. There were already 70 such offers and some of them were downright hilarious.
These are some of the "SINGLE" cards that have offered for the '52 Mantle.
1981 Bill Madlock
2006 Barry Bonds
Some guy even offered his Stephen Strasburg, but at least he offered over 75 other cards ranging all the way back to 1955. That said, there is NO trade that would be worth giving up that card.
I would have already requested shipment of that amazing card. I probably would have written 100 posts about it too.
Congrats to whoever got it. That was the "pull" of a lifetime!
