Gint-A-Cuffs 2 – Box 2, Packs 19-24

Will I manage to score enough points with these last few desperation packs to become the 2010 champion? Eh, maybe. Even with some extra points for relics the Commish added yesterday, I’m still probably out of luck, unless of course everyone else’s relics are still only worth 8 points.

So you’re saying there’s a chance? Am I? Wait, what?

Boxloader: Jacoby Ellsbury Cabinet Card (Featuring 2 Yankees) = +8 points (Cabinet Card) The commish can deduct points if he sees fit, but if anything, the Yankees are depicted negatively here.


6 PACK TOTAL: 48 POINTS + 8 (Cabinet Card) = 52 POINTS

BOX 2 GRAND TOTAL:  257 POINTS

Looks like this won’t be enough to get the job done this year. Oh well. I’m not buying anymore of this stuff, since my wantlist is down to just a handful of mini inserts. In my opinion, it’s the weakest Ginter yet, and it’s still the best Topps release of the year (unless you’re Gus Chiggins). Ginter is awesome, even when Topps screws it up with weak hits, (I know… I know… It’s “not about the hits”) and quality control issues out the wazoo.

Did I just use quotation marks inside of parenthesis? I think I did.

  1. Its weak, Its awesome.. Make up your mind..

    • My mind is made up, and I was quite clear about it. This is the weakest Ginter yet, and it’s still the best product of the year. That’s how bad 2010 has been.

  2. You added your relic wrong I think!

  3. Because the Box loader makes fun of the yankees I think you should get a 4x multiplier. 2x if it made fun of 1 yankee but 4x because it is 2.

  4. Darkship, the Kyle Blanks relic card should be worth 12 points. Beardy scored it correctly.

    Beardy, the Cabinet Card shall be scored as thus: +8 for the card, -2 for the Yankees. Normally, this would be divide by two if Yankees, but the card primarily features Ellsbury. I cannot ignore the Yankees, but I do not feel that I can cut the card points in half.

    THIS Cabinet Card shall be worth +6 points. The Commissioner has ruled.

    And yes, this is confusing.

    Next year, new rules. From scratch. After the product has hit the streets.
