Thanks to a very generous offer by John from Pursuit of 80's(ness) and Pursuit of Red Sox, I am oh so close to getting my 60th ring from the Topps Diamond Giveaway.
His latest email included 3 more codes which I turned into one 1969 Seattle Pilots card, two unmentionable cards, and three rings. The three rings I "dug" were the Chicago White Stockings, St. Louis Cardinals and Ted Williams. Literally 2 minutes after I offered them up, I had received the Diamondbacks, Indians and Padres rings in trades.
That leaves two rings to reach the magic number of 60.
Before you generous people offer up your Pirates and Nats rings, I don't have any duplicate rings to trade. I've managed to trade every duplicate so far. As soon as I can get a couple more codes, I think I'll be done with the rings.
I'm still holding out for Topps Series 2 value packs with the hopes that they'll include Gypsy Queen packs.
By the way, check out John's blog The Pursuit of 80's(ness). Back on June 2nd, he was looking for someone to trade several teams of cards with...there are some good teams to be claimed.
John, thanks for the generosity! I'll be getting something headed your way now that I have your address.
