Gint-A-Cuffs VIII: Packs 19-24 – Last Hit(s)

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.)

Pack 19

Jacoby Ellsbury (-1 for signing a big deal with a big […]

Gint-A-Cuffs VIII: Packs 13-18

Let’s get back to the fun. Since our last post, the commissioner has made a change to the scoring system. The Numbers Game inserts went from non-scoring up to +2 for each. Because of this, I’ve gone back to fix the posts and totals from my first two parts.

The second half still promises us […]

Gint-A-Cuffs VIII: Packs 7-12

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.

Pack 7

Hank Aaron Baseball Legends (+2 Legends insert) Brett Gardner (-1 for succeeding in the wrong uniform) Ryan Braun (+2 Numbers Game) Patrick Corbin (+3 […]

Gint-A-Cuffs VIII: Boxtopper and Packs 1-6

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 […]

Back In The Good Days

This blog used to be cooler, and more interesting. We would have various different ideas for blog posts to hopefully keep the readers engaged. Or at least I thought we did. We also used to be a we. I think it’s safe to say that Andy is retired from the blog. But that’s not what […]

Birthday Boxes

I guess birthday’s aren’t all that bad. As if my earlier post wasn’t proof enough, this year I got cold, hard cash. Cash that I used to by a few boxes of cards and a small smattering of singles.

Sure, I considered using the sudden windfall for a single spree, but I figured this would […]
