I hit two streaks of five and got my codes. Now I'm back down at 2 or below because I kept forgetting to check it.

At this point I am just imputing players on a daily basis. 2 streaks of 5 so far, and two codes. Must have won a daily drawing because I also have an auto. No name on auto, available in May.

I got to my 7th 5 hit streak hit today, I went to redeem my free code and I guess I won an autograph as well pretty cool. I have to say the site has been buggy but I still think its fun and keeps my attention on baseball as a whole since I now pay attention to other players than just my favorite Dodger players.

We need to consolidate these down into one thread about the Chase.

That being said, I doubt you'll get to know WHO the player is before you see it in the mail...which will be next year probably.

Maybe this will become the consolidated thread...

After all the bugs, the site is working great for me now. Really enjoying picking players every morning with my 2 sons before taking them to school. They're learning a ton about players other than their beloved Braves and other NL East teams.

Has anyone seen anything about the number of 20 game streaks being hit? Only the first 20 get coin card sets. We have an 18 and a 17 going now.

Best I got to was 13. One coin card and the code I won for 5 games was useless. Awesome job on the 18 & 17 streaks!

At this point, I'm too lazy to scroll through 75 players, so I'm just using the ones up front until they disappear from my "team".

I quit playing because it was such a pain to flip through players. I know who I wanted but had to flip through 30 guys to find him.

I doubt they release the numbers, they don't want people to stop playing.

I lost my 19 streak yesterday! But I wasn't expecting the coin set. I definitely think there have been 20 people who have hit the 20 mark just based on the leaderboard, both active and all-time streaks.

Ah, duh, hadn't even seen the Leaderboard tab, thanks for the heads up. Looks like a good chance to hit a set of auto cards for a 25-gamer if I can keep one of these 2 going, though.

Will be real interesting to see if Topps claims that streaks are invalid if you used more than one player in a streak. Unless I missed it, haven't seen any resolution to the conflict between the legal rules, which seem to say that you have to use only one player (but can sit that one player if he's going up against a stud that day) and the fact that you can obviously use more than one player in the same streak on the actual site.

Yeah you definitely have a chance at the 25 streak! Hope you get it! Most of the days I felt I had a good pick for that day. Yesterday I didn't feel good at all and of course no hit. Of course Longoria carried me for about 12 of the 19 days, should of stayed with him!

I bought a few of these codes with the intention of playing but have decided against it. Anyone want 27 codes for $7.50 dlvd? Please PM. Thanks

You should either be on or close to the leaderboard now. 18 and 19 streaks grats!

I got to 18 and blew it a few weeks ago or so. Sort of lost interest in keeping on. I was so close to the leaderboard, too!

I didn't realize that prizes were so (seemingly) easy to win...might have to enter my codes, now.
