Folks, even after ordering my set, my die cuts and my older cards, I've got somewhere around 390 cards on the Topps Diamond site, and surprisingly, a lot of them don't suck. It's just stuff that I've got at home already, or am not 100% convinced I need to have shipped to me. I keep trading with people, and the pile keeps building. Has this happened to any of you?
Anyway, despite how difficult it is to make a deal with someone you know unless you're right in front of the damn thing and both on instant messenger, I'm up for doing what I can for people. 130 of my cards (and I've got a few doubles in there, too) are pre-1980! I've got Pete LaCock and Dock Ellis for miles! Get ahold of me, and we'll arrange a time to get silly, if you're so inclined.
And yes, after the last round of maintenance, the site works like a charm. It's never been faster, this year or last with the MCG. Very impressive, hopefully the backend code fixes get carried over to next year's attempt at this.
