Oops, I did it again

I said it last week and I'll say it again. The percentage of Golden Giveaway codes that actually turn into real cards, actual, honest-to-goodness, "I can have these shipped cards", is very low. I've been very lucky compared to some others who've gotten one or even zero real cards.

As part of a trade with Robert over at $30 a week habit, I got 6 unused codes. I entered them over the weekend and one of them resulted in my 4th real card and my second Dodger.

I've already got offers out to trade this Matt Kemp for another Josh Hamilton. Why Josh Hamilton Mr. PATP, you've already got that one? Well, I've received a couple of offers for my Josh that included multiple cards. If I can get multiple cards, I might be able to turn them into a couple of different Rangers.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thank you Robert...


  1. Man, nice luck. I've had six codes. All resulted in fake coins.

  2. My pleasure, hope that your trades work out for you!

  3. Seriously? 4 cards already? I've entered over 25 codes and I still haven't unlocked a card!

  4. A Kemp card for a Ranger? That's unthinkable!

  5. Man, so YOU'RE the one taking all the cards! :) I'm 0 for 16 over here....
