One of the more obscure, but interesting inclusions in the Allen & Ginter baseball card set from Topps the last couple of years has been “The Ginter Code” where Topps has hidden a message within its baseball card set.

Last year, collector Jason Wong, appeared in the set for breaking the previous code.

We’ve busted our first boxes of this year’s version of Allen & Ginter and we found the latest winner immediately, Nick Jacoby of Louisville, Ky.

We’ll have more from him in the next week or so, but until then we’ll let you — and Jacoby — soak up his card for the first time.

He said he hasn’t seen his card yet — so you will see it for the first time just like he is. Congrats.

We’ll have more from 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter right here later this evening. And, yes, the code-breaking challenge is back for 2010 as well.

What is the deal with the code system, the card company doesn’t tell you how to play? Please help

Thats the point, they don’t tell you, you have to investigate, look for patterns, its actually quite interesting.
