I don't know of anyone who got more involved in Topps' Million Card Giveaway and Diamond Giveaway than me. I fell for both of those promotions in a big way. The possibility of unlocking some nice vintage cards was too much for me to resist.
Now that the 2012 Golden Giveaway is close to going live, I was just as excited about it. Until I read the back of the card and the part of the website that is available.
If I read the information correctly, you won't be able to unlock vintage cards this time. It looks like the codes will unlock digital golden coins, limited edition gold chrome die-cuts or cards with real gold. That list doesn't include any real Topps cards.
As a team collector, it would be nice to get any Rangers die-cuts, but without the possibility of unlocking any actual Topps cards, I'm not sure my enthusiasm will be the same this year.
I guess I'll have to wait until the site goes live to know for sure.
