Topps Golden Giveaway - giants1957 - 02-27-2012 12:18 AM

How many of you guys are doing this promotion from Topps? The Willie Mays auto card seems hard to win.......how many coins are you away from the 30 unique coings to win instantly?


RE: Topps Golden Giveaway - randall617 - 02-27-2012 12:26 AM

I gave up after 20 codes and 20 coins. I have more than enough 2012 product and my luck sucks at winning anything from these promotions so I won't be buying any more codes.
I entered almost 200 codes last year and got essentially squat. Good luck to anyone else.

RE: Topps Golden Giveaway - giants1957 - 02-27-2012 12:49 AM

i ented 11 codes i think, god a chin-sin choo card on my first code, after that nothing but coins


RE: Topps Golden Giveaway - happy14027 - 02-27-2012 10:50 AM

I have all 3 sets of 29 coins and have submitted about a hundred codes since getting 29 in all three and still no number thirty and of course no one will trade for it. I've given up--I now have 3 of every coin but about five. Never got a pack of cards either-I got 22 "real" cards for about 250 codes-They really have made this TOO hard to win. They even still advertise the first 100 people to get 200 coins wins a set of cards-well I didn't get that ether and they won't answer my e-mail to see if I should have gotten it. You would think they would take the advertisement down AFTER all the sets are gone. Greedy buggers!

I only did about 20 codes for last years. Decided before I even opened a pack of 2012 the codes would be sold/traded.

Not going to mess around with it for the frustration or for fear of getting sucked in and going on an ebay buying spree to buy 200 codes

Verlander, St. Louis Cards, and Ruth are the rares this year.

3x29 = 97x3 = 291 - 5 = 286 total codes.

Assume you bought them cheaply at $1.25 per code = $357.50 / 22 cards = 16.25 per card.

Some of those cards are selling for rediculous prices on the bay currently. (90$ for pujols, 75 for clemente and griffey, 60 for jeter, etc) the cheapest card I found on the bay was Ozzie at 8$. If you sold them, you could probably make your money back.

so what 3 coins do you need from each 3 sets to win?
