Cardboard Overload

Here is your 2011 Ginter Code advertisement card

with 12 comments

Was lucky enough to get my hands on some scans…seems like certain areas of the country have Targets that received the retail version of Ginter early.  I was lucky enough to talk to some of those people and one provided this:

I don’t want to post the back because it has a tiny clue, but if you’re interested in seeing it let me know!

I’ve also seen what the code cards are this year, and it looks like it’s going to be a tough one.  Code cards fall 1 in every 8 packs, and I’m not sure how many there are (I’ve seen two so far).  My theory (without giving too much away):  getting the code cards and knowing what to do with them will be fairly easy.  What to do next is a little tougher, and I have a good hunch that Topps didn’t provide all the info yet…I think they were tired of people (cough, cough) cracking the code so quickly and wanted the contest to stay open longer.  This way they keep interest in the product longer and sell more…can’t blame them.

That’s all I’ve got for now, if anyone has questions let me know!

  5. I would love a scan of the back of the card. I have been searching area Targets to no avail and will likely have to order online. Thanks.

  6. Don’t see anything resembling a clue on the back, on the front the clock hands vary with different cards.

    Anyway, if you see something and are wiling to share, my e-mail’s attached.
