I have now redeemed two cards in the Topps Million Card Giveaway promotion. My first Topps Million Card Giveaway redemption turned out to be a 1989 George Brett #200. Not a vintage card like I had hoped for but at least it was a great player that I enjoyed watching play the game. I was again hopeful for a vintage card with this redemption but I also understand there will be far more modern commons revealed during the promotion than vintage cardboard.
When I clicked the unlock button I was greeted by a 2000 Derek Bell #148. Oh well, I am still enjoying the promotion and at least it wasn’t a checklist card from say 1988. I didn’t buy a lot of wax from 2000 Topps nor did I build the set so I don’t really have any use for this card.
I decided to make a trade request but with my two cards I don’t have much trade bait. I searched to see if any Taylor Teagardens had been unlocked yet but didn’t have any luck. Next I searched for Kinslers and found a few 2005 base cards so I offered up both of my cards for one 2005 Ian Kinsler. According to the note on my proposed trade my two cards are worth more than the one Kinsler but not to me. I have the offer running for a week so maybe someone will take me up on it. If not I’ll find something else I need.
Have you redeemed any cards yet? If so what is your opinion of the promotion so far?
