Let me start by saying this is NOT a complaint post. I'm not here to bad mouth Topps or question their thinking.
I realized the availability date had passed for the "Topps 60th Anniversary Commemorative Set" that you get for digging 45 rings on the Diamond Giveaway site. I requested the set and lo and behold, it arrived yesterday.
I opened it up and here is what I got:
Again, I'm not complaining about getting a complete 2011 Topps Factory Set. It's all 660 cards from Series 1 and 2.
What I don't understand is Topps describing it as an "Exclusive Commemorative 60th Anniversary Edition Complete Set." This appears to be a regular factory set. I was just assuming, and we all know how dangerous that can be, that this was something special Topps created for the Diamond Giveaway promotion.
The best thing about getting this is that my youngest son, the one who has never shown any interest in cards, actually has a stack of 2011 Topps on his bookshelf. I think I'll give this to him and let him crack it open and put it in a binder.
By the way, the shipping on this was free. Does anyone know if Topps is charging for shipping on the diamond die cut cards or is it just the regular cards?
