Delivery Time! Turning Giants into Shinies

What does a Pablo Sandoval Target Throwback card from this year's edition of flagship Topps, plus another 30 or so assorted Giants get a person?

Well, a recent trade with Anthony over at Cheap Card Collecting, it gets me eleven cards off my own want list.  That's a trade I'll happily make every time!

What'd I end up with you ask?  Funny you should ask such a thing as I was about to show you.

First up, a bunch of Diamond Parallels.
Yeah, I put them in upside down on my scanner...oops.

It sure seems like I get at least a couple of diamond parallels in every trade I've completed lately...and yet I still need so many more!  Maybe trying to complete the set that I've been working on it is a waste of time - oh well, too late now!

I should mention that since Anthony sent me seven diamonds, he has earned himself seven entries into my contest.

In addition to the diamond cards, I also got another three of the Topps Town cards.

I know, I know.  I'm such a shmuck for collecting the set...  I don't even like the stupid thing but at this point I can't not collect it...  That's right, a double negative and the word shmuck in the same little paragraph, not to mention a pair of ellipses.  You are welcome world.

And finally, a solitary Topps 60 card.
I'm not feeling overly creative when I look at Walter...I can't even come up with anything to say - other than it's one less card that I need to acquire now (which in itself is a good thing)!

Thanks for the trade Anthony!  And, as always, if anyone else would like to trade - check out my want list and make an offer!
