Was there a peel-off option? I don't buy a lot of new Topps, but I know some of those things can be scratched OR peeled, like an iTunes gift card.

Jeebus, you scratched it way too hard. Even the grey around the scratch off section is partially scratched off.

You scratched it way too hard. The fact that it is showing white is proof of that.

Yep you have to scratch very lightly on those Topps redemptions.

From the looks of it you scratched way too hard.

yeah I think you scratched it to hard Jason. Sadly a person has to be really careful scratching codes off.

All walker redemptions are missing the codes. Gotta send them all in.

I think you may be right. I bought a Walker redemption code from a member here and he ran into the same issue.

My Adam Walker redemption was fine and had the code there. Looking at it right now and the background where the code is grey. Looking at the picture the OP included makes it look like he might have scratched it too hard.

X2.

FWIW: I've started to scratch too hard and part of the code came off. I am now waiting to be the proud owner of some base auto I can't remember off hand. Sometimes it's better to scratch the code completely off.

Can we all just agree that SOME of the Walker codes may or may not have been present?

No we are going to just keep arguing about the OP "scratching too hard."
