My First Code Unlocked Die Cut Card

The posts just keep on coming. What can I say, when “breaking” news happens, you gotta post it, right? If you missed it earlier, check out the post below this one for details on all kinds of box breaking goodness coming up.

Thank you, Update.

Really the only reason I’m buying update is for trade […]

Reviewing That Offer From Last Night

Faithful readers and aimless internet wanderers alike saw my post late last night about what I should do with my Carl Yastrzemski die-cut card. I listed several different options, but the most popular one was to go for the 16 card trade that involved an Ernie Banks die-cut, so that’s the one I’m going to […]

How Would You Play This?

The original title of this post was going to be “Well, I guess I can quit my bitching now.”

Most of you blogging types have had at least a modicum of success in unlocking limited edition, super-special, hachi machi die-cuts from the Topps code factory. I had zero luck after series 1. I bought a […]

Goodbye, Jody. It’s Been Fun.

We’ve had some good times and we’ve had regular times, but it’s time the times come to an end. Time.

Our sweet, dear Jody Davis has finally found a worthy suitor.

Ever since we unlocked the power of the hometown catcher on the Topps Million Card site thingy, we’ve seen all kinds of offers for […]

Million Card Hornswoggle

I had another post planned for tonight, but instead I’m going back to the Topps Million Card well.

For a while now, Andy and I have had two unused codes sitting and waiting for the magic moment where it starts spitting out nothing but good stuff again. I check the site every once in a […]

Talkin’ Topps Trades

Boy, you just can’t avoid that Million card giveaway, can you? We’re still sitting on 3 codes — just waiting for the next all ’50s refresh to pop up. Aside from refreshing that page endlessly, the other thrill on the site is seeing what kind of trades are being offered and what you can offer […]

Million Card Meltdown

Okay. The one code a day thing came to an end. It pretty much had to. We got a tip from Play at the Plate that the Topps site wasn’t random and was spitting out 1960s and 70s cards like nobody’s business.

I must admit, I was skeptical. I thought that “recently unlocked” list was […]

Million Card Impatience!

As expected, I couldn’t hold up my end of the one-a-day thing. I’m justifying it by the fact that these two gems come from the Million Card Giveaway card brandishing Roger Maris’s angry mug. We didn’t get anyone of his stature, but I’m quite pleased with the result.

Code 1:

Tony-O the Tiger… […]

More Million Card Madness

Man I wish “card” started with an “M” so I could get the full alliteration going.

So, are you guys sick of the one-code a day thing yet? Andy and I just picked up another 6 codes in our packs today and are considering just going hog-wild on the website. What do you all think?


Olympic Pack Break and More Million Goodness

I’m covering two topics in this post today. The short one (Topps Million) will be first for those who want to cut and run early.

The “Goodness” mentioned in the title is a relative term. Let’s see what my 2006 Topps Heritage style Mickey Mantle code card gets me.

Let's all take knee, […]
