Grab Your Team - 2011 Topps Diamond Anniversary Limited Factory Set


** UPDATE - ALL TEAMS HAVE BEEN CLAIMED **


I'm getting ever closer to getting my crap in order so I can resume some trading. I swear I've been saying that for the last year, but things are starting to fall into place. My want list and trade lists will be revamped and updated very soon. I've got a CRAP TON of stuff I'm not keeping either and will be looking for a new home. I'm thinking about filling up a large flat rate USPS box with everything (sets, both complete and incomplete of base Topps, Heritage and more) so if that sounds like something you'd pay the shipping on let me know and we'll work something out.

Now, the real reason for this post. Upon my cleaning up I found this factory set of 2011 Topps baseball. Now before you write this off, pay close attention. This is a set I won from Topps so the cards aren't your regular 2011 issue. Nope, for starters the Diamond Anniversary logo replaces the normal Topps logo and in silver foil above the name is "factory set limited edition".

I hope that I haven't waited too long and that there are enough people interested in these variants.

A quick scan of eBay shows many commons from this set selling at a buck each. However I thought why not make team sets (contains both series 1 & 2) and let them go for $4 shipped? This would cover my shipping expense and get the cards into the hands of collectors. I looked at doing this for free, but if I'm being honest I don't gave the money to cover shipping for everyone. Lack of money is one of the reasons I cut back drastically on my card purchases.

I'm currently working on putting together a want list for 2014 Allen & Ginter & Gypsy Queen, so if you have a lot of unwanted base cards and maybe some minis/inserts, I'll take whatever you have as payment.

So if $4 shipped sounds fair to you, then all I ask is that you please leave a comment claiming your team or teams. (If you are interested in more than 3 teams, let me know and we'll work out a discounted price.) PayPal address is flywheels@yahoo.com. You can then e-mail me your shipping address. I ask that everyone gives me your address again as I have a new laptop and haven't switched over all of my files yet.

  1. I'll take the Giants. I have one of these sets and have been contemplating breaking it up but now I guess I don't.

  4. I'd be interested in the Brewers team set. Would you rather trade it for a Rocket Raccoon polybag? or I can do the $4 too. I still need to see if TRU has any left first.

  12. I've given this enough time....I'm interested in the Rangers and Twins for sure. If you want to make a package deal for what's left, I could use it trade packages. I could do a combo of cards and cash. Let me know.

    1. Sadly no John. All the remaining teams have been claimed (guess I should update my post!) I've got more freebies coming though and I'm adding your blog to my blogroll. Always nice to meet a fellow Braves collector.
