Hey all....new to the site. Was just doing some browsing online. I was fortunate enough to get a Chris Carpenter 14k Gold 1/1 Refractor card. I've only hit for 3 other cards (all base die cut).

Anyone care to venture a guess as to what the Carpenter card might fetch?

The site may be churning out a gold card for every 200 codes entered, but that doesn't mean you're the one getting them.
How do you come up with this.

I thought codes are tied to certain cards.

Yeah I wasn't aware of how lucky I have been getting either....

about 50 codes entered 6 base and 2 gold.

But no emails about the 10$ off and it has been over a month.

The sad part is I have luck with these codes...But buying boxes and blaster 9 out 10 times I have lost my shirt.

Maybe for once somebody is looking over me and paying me back for being in the hobby for such a long time.

But for people to call up Topps and complain is nothing but a waste of time.

I have heard in the past the codes for the coupons are nothing but a waste of time alot of people haven't been getting them.

So which cards did you unlock

Default I gave up on the $10 gift certificate from Topps.

I unlocked multiple $10 gift cards. Never received an e-mail. Raised a complaint on two separate occasions to customer service and was told, "we sent you the $10 gift card". Almost to the point the customer service agent was arguing with me.

No big deal. I just won't waste my time ordering anything from their shop. I can get better deals elsewhere anyway.
