Gint-A-Cuffs V: Break out the gloves, it's on!
Thanks to Mark, Gint-A-Cuffs is on again this year. It's been several years since I've participated, but through a special deal, 12 lucky folks get a special discount on Hobby Boxes provided by Dave and Adam's Card World. If there are slots still available, you can ask for one at gintacuffs.blogspot.com. Of course, even if the discount is over, you can still participate if you like. Get the details at the gintacuffs site.
The last time I played, I scored roughly 156 points. That was in 2010, Gint-A-Cuffs II. Last year, the winner had 207 points. We'll see how things go, I guess.
I would like to do a special group break for this Hobby Box, but I'll have to figure out just how to set that up. The potential for some great cards is there, but so is the chance of getting very little on a buy-in for one box. Well, no, not really. Covering a whole box, just about any buy-in would be worth it. There are many variables, though: rip cards, box toppers, non-baseball, double-autos, etc. That's going to take some thought and planning.
In any case, once the 2013 A&G ships around August 7, I'll have the box soon afterward!
