I finally decided to give in a redeem these Million Card Giveaway suckers to see what I got, or didn't get for that matter. I had 10 codes to redeem and toyed with selling them on eBay for a while but figured I should take a shot just in case there is a Pujols card in the bunch here.
Here is my loot:
1. 1969 Rookie Stars Jerry Crider/Geo. Mitterwald, Minnesota Twins
2. 1970 Sporting News Don Kessinger, Chicago Cubs
3. 1959 Andy Pafko, Milwaukee Braves
4. 1979 Dave Heaverlo, Oakland A's
5. 1963 Ernie Bowman, San Francisco Giants
6. 1959 Sporting News Rookie Stars Dick Stigman, Cleveland Indians
7. 1972 Carlos May, Chicago White Sox
8. 1976 Joe Niekro, Houston Astros
9. 1979 Ron Jackson, California Angels
10. 1964 Dave Wickersham, Detroit Tigers
I am rather surprised that I got all vintage cards, but surprised in a good way. I was expecting to end up with some cards that were a year or two old at most and ended up winning with all vintage. For the record, all of these codes were from retail packs. I didn't buy a single 2010 Series 1 Hobby pack. I probably will not have a single one of these shipped to me, but the process was more fun than I thought it would be.
If anyone is interested in any of these let me know, I'm more than willing to trade them.
