I finally gave in and dunked my blank back Pele in water to see if anything was revealed. Well, it sprouted green all over just like a Chia Pet! These were popular in the 80's - it has to be a clue!

Haven't you seen National Treasures, you're supposed to use lemon juice and then heat it up.

I just tore one up to see if it was some clever rip card or not.

We had a lot of them so Pele was expendable

If you don't mind an inquiry, does anyone here know what the backstory for previous year's AG codes were?

i have some idea:
1. checked text in the back of Walton and Pele and i found number "77" was in both cards.
2. Pele auto card was remodeled after 2006 ginter cards
3. Pele base blank back (not mini) has "missing text" in the back

This year ginter #77 is Frank Robinson and he have card too in 2006 ginter. So maybe someone can compare the back of this year Frank Robinson base card and 2006 Frank Robinson base card and check is there any missing text.

Out of my 6 boxes, I got 2 Pele Full size cards, 2 base minis and 1 ginter retro back. None of them say "Missing Text"

As a service to fellow Ginter fans and codebreakers:

2013 Topps Allen Ginter Curious Cases Code Card Assasination of JFK | eBay

These listings are for SCANS only...although you'd never be able to tell from the title, the product descriptions or the last line in the description. I bought three from him last night assuming I was getting the card (again read the title and the product info) and that he was sending a scan to begin with...nope. Just the scan.

I have already seen all the scans, this was for my personal collection (not codebreaking stuff). So I just want to save someone else being annoyed like I was.
