Well, father's day was a good one for me in the Diamond Card Giveaway, as I completed TWO deals for Chicago Cubs die cuts. The first one, Aramis Ramirez, came to me at one in the morning, and the second, Marlon Byrd, was waiting for me when I got home from the in laws.
I was up late last night with a cranky six-week-old. With one free hand, I was able to put close to 50 proposals together. My strategy now is to simply get any die cuts I can. With proposals for the cards I want going nowhere, maybe they'd be enticed by other die cut cards. However, of all the proposals, for all the players, the one single one that went through was for a player from the very team I am going for. Lucky me. Al I had to give up was a 1958 Bennie Daniels. That, however, was my last card from the '50s. As far as anything before 1979, all I have left is a 1974 Billy Williams and a 1961 John Romano. I figured that Williams should be enough to entice some Cubs fan to give up one of their die cuts, but we'll just have to see.
All I have left now is Ernie Banks and Tyler Colvin.
