2012 CodeBreaker Set Draft!

Just like last year, we were handed a very good problem to have: having to split up our 2012 CodeBreaker Set. This year, the set was a bit too big to sit down all at once, and so  G and I took to doing our draft over the long three day weekend.  I know, poor us, right?

Anyway, since it was just the two of us, we actually didn't just go right down the list taking one pick after the other.  It's fairly well known that I am (and have been) a huge Washington Nationals fan, and so G suggested I take all the Nats cards off the top-including the coveted Harper rookie Auto.  To keep things fair, G took cards of comparable worth (I appreciate him not taking the opportunity to gauge me by stocking up on Hall of Famers), followed by a little more splitting up of cards we thought went well together.  This might make more sense if you see the list though, so here we go!

An early anniversary gift: the 2012 Codebreaker set

As we're getting close to the 1 year mark of cracking the 2011 Ginter Code, I got a very pleasant surprise yesterday. I'll let the video speak for itself.

I don't think there is much more to add, except that the cards look awesome in person. LOVE the cream finish for the frame, I think it goes very well with the card itself.

Now, some of you who have been following the Codebreaker set story will probably notice that we still have a few 2011 names pending, and that some of the 2012 are also missing. We are in contact with Topps to sort the matter, and things should be resolved quickly.

Next, the 2012 Ginter Code Draft!!
