[The twenty-second in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]
I’ve waited long enough to close this out. 6 more packs. 1 more promised hit. Unknown chance for actually winning.
Let’s tally this up and see where the cards fall. (Please don’t let the cards fall. We don’t want dinged corners.)

I’ve greatly enjoyed […]
Who’s ready for round 2? The first quarter of the box seemed decent enough. It’s certainly hard to be upset with an autograph as those become increasingly rare.
Hank Aaron Baseball Legends (+2 Legends insert) Brett Gardner (-1 for succeeding in the wrong uniform) Ryan Braun (+2 Numbers Game) Patrick Corbin (+3 […]
Here we go. The last time I participated in Gint-A-Cuffs was 6 years ago during the contest’s second year. Back then we got 205 points, which was not enough to win (scoring was different then).
I actually bought two boxes of A&G this year but my other box was about as basic as you can […]
