Topps Diamond Giveaway:Lucky or MASS Produced?

I entered one code
(holding the others cuz they sell well right now)
and got the card below. A new PC card of 50s Sox. sick.

Then I "dug it" and apparently won this:
A 2010 Topps Diamond Anniversary set
(which I can order in august)
I do not know anyone who has redeemed any codes, Bearday and I are on the same page; essentially MCG with more frills.

I got a frill.

Tell me what you know of this Diamond digging aspect of the "new look" giveaway

I'll Take the $10 blaster: Best of Both Worlds

The freaks come out at night....

Longo mini
Beckett Black Gypsy-Back
Night SP Tulo,
and motherf%$king Buffalo Bill himself (easily one of the best cards in the set).

I've opened boxes of goodwin in the past, but only one hobby and maybe a blaster or two. This does not affect my love for this set. It has grown on me like a mediocre college campus, and despite the clogged-drain, full garbagecan, beautiful agony of the painting, have grown to feel at home in its arm-chair beige, multi-sport righteousness. I never had the pleasure of pulling a Night SP previous to this blaster, and so I was intimately aware of what I was looking for/that which I had not seen in person until the opening of the box. I love it. Little did I know that this was the beginning of a little bit of a roll I was on (more to follow in $10 bargain bin blaster endeavors) I am am not so much a hockey fan as I am a fan of Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Patrick Roy, and most of all, OVI. sick pulls. Roy was inspiring as "une habitante", and I was honored to have opened this box.

Thank you, bargain Bin.
