Million Card Giveaway - Pleasantly Surprised

Like many other collectors I had a frustrating time entering my Topps Million Card Giveaway codes today. I had only 3 cards to enter:

Card #1 - 1993 Topps Milt Hill - "Great..." I thought to myself. This is about what I expected. Milt lasted just 4 seasons in the majors and was out of baseball by 1994. Not to mention, I have about 400 '93 Topps cards tucked in a box in my basement that I'd love to get rid of. There could be a Milt in there already, I'm not even sure...

Card #2 - 2005 Topps Tim Wakefield - OK, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Most people would probably be aggravated by this one as well, but I didn't start collecting again until 2007, so this is a Red Sox card I don't actually have. Card 3 was definitely the winner in the bunch though...

Card #3 - 1958 Topps Tony Taylor - Nice! This is better than I expected for sure. I've got a handful of '58 Topps and will definitely have Tony shipped to add him to my collection. I'd never heard of him before but he actually had a long career in the majors, playing well into the 70's. I'm pretty sure this is his rookie card as well.

I'm very jealous of all the vintage Cubbies I'm seeing popping up on several blogs. I only had one card to redeem and ended up with an '05 Grady Sizemore.
