million card giveaway

So, I guess like everybody else I'll post up my virtual pulls from the Topps Million Card Giveaway.

I'm a little late with showing off the cards. I didn't really get much. After 7 retail packs I pulled 3 code cards, which seems like pretty decent odds.

My first card was a 1993 Edgar Martinez.

I don't have any cards from this year, so that's something I guess.

My second card was a 2007 Brandon McCarthy.

I'm glad i didn't pick up that discount 2007 blaster when I was out buying these packs, haha. I still got one indirectly though. Oh well.

and lastly a cool vintage card.

A 1971 Skip Pitlock card. He looks a little surprised to be a part of the million card giveaway. Also, his auto looks like it came from the hand of a psychopath.

The card looks a little miscut. Hopefully that's from the scan and not a miscut card. I'm definitely getting these cards sent to me at some point.

I'm glad I went out and picked up some more packs, and I'm hoping that I get more vintage cards like the Pitlock card.

Honestly I don't know much about the players on these cards. I really like the fact that I got a 1971 card. I haven't seen many of these around here and I'm sure that this one is going to be in pretty good shape. I can't imagine Topps sending out cards in crappy condition.

Hopefully I can pull some more old cards.

Skip Pitlock! What a name. What a funny picture. This gimmick is cool because we get to see cards a lot of us would never have seen.

Yeah I agree. I haven't seen a lot of these cards as I've been out of collecting for a long time so it's good to see all the randomness of the cards people are getting. I think topps did a good job with this one.
