Evening the Playing Field

Here are the Allen & Ginter Codes I've gotten off the web. All are eyeballed off of sketchy scans so don't take it as gospel. I'll update/correct as new information becomes available. (latest update: 7/29) Let's make sure some case breaking dealer doesn't get his face on a card next year.

If you manage to crack the sucker, e-mail Topps at CODE at TOPPS dot COM. Good luck...

Corrections, updates, cease & desist orders and general tomfoolery can be posted in the comments.

Minty Beans. Good grief...

Look, man, I've got certain information, all right? Certain things have come to light. And, you know, has it ever occurred to you, that, instead of, uh, you know, running around, uh, uh, blaming me, you know, given the nature of all this new shit, you know, I-I-I-I... this could be a-a-a-a lot more, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, complex, I mean, it's not just, it might not be just such a simple... uh, you know?


(Since I haven't the foggiest what the actual post was about I decided to take you up on your generous offer to post tomfoolery)

I have the Kerri Strug and Washington Crosses the Delaware codes at home (which by the way is different than what was on the sales flyer...go figure huh).

Thanks for the codes. I'm giving these to my mom. She loves those cryptopuzzles in the Dell puzzle magazines. If she can't figure them out, then all hope is lost.

Sincerely,

JayBee Anama

What in God's holy name are you blathering about, motherscratcher?

Apparently there's a Mark Spitz one (#2), though I don't see it on your list. And I'm wondering if the card backs have something to do with the code.

Deep Blue is card #10, in case they have to be in order.

I was thinking of doing this myself, but thought no one in their right mind would share this stuff.

I wonder what Topps does if a group of people "crack the code?"

Once you crack the code....then what? Do you call Topp's?
