So What Was Up With Those Clovers?

In an effort to keep excising the demons of the 2011 Allen and Ginter Code, I thought we could tackle the biggest bugaboo of the set:  The dreaded, expensive, rare, frustrating and ultimately useless clover corner "code" cards.

Hooo boy.

Code Crumbs 2: too obvious to be true?

I think (hope?) I'm not the only one who actually noticed the difference between the back of A&G cards between 2010 and 2011: below are the backs of the Nick Swisher base cards for 2010 (top) and 2011 (bottom), courtesy of

Newsworthy!: Our Cardboard Connection Radio Interview

Listen to internet radio with Cardboard Connection Radio on Blog Talk Radio

Hey there Ginter fans,

This is our promised interview with Cardboard Radio from last night. We had a great time with Doug and Rob and Co., and it turns out we all liked each others voices.  This was our first time speaking to each other too.

In case you feel the need to skip ahead, we come on at the 16:30 mark and go for about 15-20 minutes.  

We didn't speak too much about the code exactly, but had a conversation that talked about teamwork, community and Topps.  It was very fun to be engaged on that level.

Also on the show is Kevin Isaacson, talking about the 2012 Industry Summit.  Good info and a great show, not just cuz we were in it.  Give it a listen!
