The Million Card Giveaway is going....going...

If you have cards awaiting shipment, today is the last day. It ends March 1, but I don't know if that's midnight eastern time, midnight pacific time or when Michael Eisner wakes up from his afternoon nap.

As of the time I'm writing this post, 4:12 AM central time, there are over 300 1952 Topps cards still sitting in the "vault". There are 53,250 trade offers still up and 294 2010 Stephen Strasburg cards still sitting there surrounded by 4 highly trained ninja guards.

I saw 4 different Duke Snider cards, including two from 1959. There is a 1966 Mickey Mantle and even these two beauties...

How about these vintage cardboard treasures?

It's a shame. I know some of these, and many of those others, will be claimed by the end of the day, but many of them will go unclaimed. I get leaving one of your 1987 Topps cards to rot in Topps collection, but there will be many great cards unclaimed.

Now, I just wish my package would arrive so I can see the condition of the cards.

Anyone waiting until the last second to request their cards?

  1. Haven't claimed mine yet, for some reason, but I will by the end of the day.
