2012 Topps Golden Moments Die Cuts, Just Before The Deadline

I unlocked three cards through the Topps “Golden Giveaway”, and even after trading 2 of them for players I collect, I debated for quite a while whether or not to even redeem these cards…  All of the selling points of these cards are just “meh” to me.

Shiny?  Meh.

Die-cut?  Meh.

A design rather than the photo’s original background?  Meh.

I let it go until pretty much the last minute, and finally decided that it would be better to buy them and see if they’re more exciting in person, rather than to skip them and risk buyer’s – or  non-buyer’s – remorse.

So here are the cards. They’re much thicker than I expected, about the thickness of four normal Topps cards.

Please forgive the wavy white lines in the scans… Because I haven’t committed 100% to keeping these cards, I didn’t remove the protective film from the front.

I hope some of you will say something along the lines of “Whoa, awesome cards!”

…Because I’m still saying “meh.”
