Finally, I am catching up with the times. Goodbye yesteryear, hello 2011!
If you read my last post and made it alllllllll the way to the bottom, you would have read that I have been buying a few 2011 Series One packs. A whole seven have made into my clutches. Surprisingly, from those seven packs, I amassed one double, so I've made a reasonable dent in the Series One set (~20%).
Today, I found myself in a Target and noticed the four packs with a guaranteed Diamond Giveaway Code. I thought, heck, I'm going to buy two packs anyways, might as well pony up for two more packs and get a code. My FIRST CODE ever.
Ripped the packs and ended up with three codes total, plus some assorted inserts (No Dodgers, YES!). Anyways, I moseyed on over to the Giveaway site and felt immediately OLD. I read all the FAQ and then created an account. I entered my first code and got a:
Joy. I was immediately thrilled and let down simultaneously. After all the reading I've done from last year's giveaway to this year's, I was mixed. I was happy to finally get a card, and then befuddled at the Orange Horror. I then found my next card and tentatively entered the code and got this:
Better. Not awe inspiring, and I'm pretty sure I have at least three of these at home, but at least we are pre-86. I figure some Braves fan will make an offer and it will likely be accepted.
Then I looked at my final code card, and thought "Should I enter it, or save it?" Then I remembered you could see what cards had recently been pulled, and try to get into the good groove. I saw the three most recent pulls and they were from the late 60s and early 70s. Sweet, pull that trigger. I entered the code and got this:
Whaaaa? What in the world is that? What is a Diamond Die Cut and WHO is JAIR JURRJENS? I can feel the sun racing around to come up behind me again, Pink.
Anyways, I'm not sure if you can select a "user" to trade with. Anyone know? And if anyone has pointers on how to actually trade, I'd appreciate the 411 (hah, look at me, all trendy and stuff. LOL).
Finally, I need to get a 2011 want list up, as the four packs I got yielded at least 25% doubles. Also, I really don't care for inserts, so I'll have to post that trade bait, too.
