  2. autos...lots of em! Topps will call nick since he officially submitted the entry. But at least now we are all off the hook. Topps auto response has changed, and we can start to share how we did it. According to their email to Nick, we are the only ones to solve it to this point.

  18. Congrats!! I can't wait to hear the explanation because I wouldn't have even known where to start lol...

  19. Congrats, especially on solving it so quickly. I'm guessing that Topps isn't too thrilled with that because there goes one of the draws for the set.

    Can't wait to read the solution.

  20. I saw 09 A&G retail at Target tonight, almost bought a pack but thought, "The code has already been cracked, whats the point?"

    Hear that, Topps? Discount '09 Allen & Ginter or I won't buy any!!! I'm a guaranteed one or two packs a month, definitely a life changing amount of money for a lucky shop owener...

  21. DANG I was about to scan my code cards and get in... I'm slow... dang moving...

  22. Well, I kinda feel sorry for the Topps guy who invented it, but it was damn clever so I tip my hat to him. Hope to maybe talk to him at some point. I Dont feel bad for the dudes at Ebay trying to sell each stinkin card for at least a buck...Though THANK YOU EBAY for scanning (most) of the images online. Since they were a parallel, the backs of the cards did not matter.

  23. Congrats to you both on solving the code. I think you're right. It was a pretty safe bet that every card in the set had to have been scanned. I think if they do this again next year, Topps might cover up the card (similar to the Topps Mystery Finest cards in the late 90's).

    Regardless, good job.

    Sincerely,

  25. Congrats guy!!! That was fast! I didn't even get a chance to get any code cards yet. Enjoy the auto set! Let me know when they contact you if they haven't already, they didn't contact me until two days after the contest ended last year. I had to wait almost 3 months. But again CONGRATS!!! Jason

  26. Thanks Champ! Yeah, we kinda were "persistant" with contacting Topps. I think they finally relented and gave in.
