Blogger wouldn't let me post. For the last 20 minutes or so the Topps Giveaway site is giving up lots of 60s and 70s cards. I haven't seen any other years except one 1980 card.
Great, I just picked up a Retail pack, and a Rack Pack today in hopes of getting a code (well and the other cards didn't hurt), and got squat. My next code with be a 2007 watch.
I've read that the codes are designated to an actual card so what you are seeing is just a coincedence. I'm not 100% sure if that's true, but I did read it somewhere.
Thanks for the "heads-up". I was trying to decide what to do with the 10 I got from a Jumbo break today. Went mass redemption and did alright. Nothing newer than 1974 and the oldest was a 1965.As far as the codes go, the way I understand these types of redemptions to run (ie. PIN/Code entry contests) is that there are designated times throughout the contest where the "big hits" will be scheduled to be given away. Whoever enters a valid code at that exact time "wins".
No way that is a coincedence. It's still happening right now.
I just redeemed 4. They were 72,73,73, and 74.
We redeemed 3 tonight and got all 70s as well. I thought the cards were tied to a specific code, but it could just be a code to get a "randomized" card.Also, could be that Topps is only listing the older cards as a marketing ploy.-Jon
Wow. That actually frustrates me. I assumed it would be random regardless of day or time. I would have saved mine.
I wonder if this is just an attempt to boost sales to people anxious to redeem some vintage cards. As of right now they are still all vintage cards that are popping up.
Wow, look at all the people who commented on this who don't comment anymore.Don't they know that you can win prizes if you comment????
Got to agree with Night Owl on this one... can't win if you don't comment.
