I just finished reading the entire blog. Man that's a lot of work and explanation.
If you want to know how the Ginter Code was solved, please go here:
Nick Jacoby (it turns out that he has a blog of his own called Cardboard Overload)and Mike Gellner of JD's Wild Cardz will take you step by step on how to crack the code. Then you can take your 100 cards, and follow along, knowing that your shot of winning is now nil (look, ego, I know it's been a while, but get away from my computer...)
Again, congratulations to you both. I salute you. Did Pat Neshek, who is a big time card collector himself, have something to do with this...
