Topps is saving one spot in an upcoming Allen & Ginter set for…you.
Topps will use the 2008 Allen & Ginter set to create a new card for 2009–one featuring a collector.
A promotion called “Crack the Ginter Code” will offer the chance to collect insert cards that will be used to select a winner who will get their own card in next year’s issue.
In every 24 packs of 2008 Allen & Ginter Baseball, appears in insert titled “World’s Greatest Victories”. There are 20 different cards in all. Once all 20 cards are collected, they can be formatted as a group to reveal what Topps calls "a secret message."
The message has a call for action and the first to do it correctly will appear in next year’s set as the “Champion Code Breaker”.
2008 Allen & Ginter Baseball is scheduled to be released around mid-July.
