Tribecards from Outer Space: What the Heck Wednesday!

This is a Wednesday full of surprises.  First of all, Gint-A-Cuffs is officially open for scoring! Thanks to Mark for putting together all the rules, points, and for dealing with the likes of me... Especially in light of the next thing to happen today: I won!

Crackin' Wax loves to raise money for various charities, and his latest was a doozie. He put everyone's name into a hat, er, that bought a spot (or more than one spot). Then, in one of the sickest randomized drawings ever, I narrowly beat Mark (see above) for an unopened box of 2013 Allen & Ginter! Holy smokes!!

I plan to use the box as an additional entry into the Gint-A-Cuffs V contest. I will come up with a plan for the cards as well.

Speaking of cards, remember that I am having a Group Break for the box of A&G I've already busted open! There are still plenty of slots available. Just visit the link, leave a comment for your choice, then send your entry fee:

Let's see, what should I open tonight? How about a pack of 2001 Upper Deck Evolution? 5 cards per pack.

Bernie Williams - Yankees - ScottCrawfordOnCards (Wahoo!!)
Roberto Alomar - Indians (Wahoo!) - Akgonzolyn (Wahoo!!)
Bobby Abreu - Phillies - ScottCrawfordOnCards (Wahoo!!)
Mark Quinn - Royals - Free Agent
Preston Wilson - Marlins - Free Agent

Well, a hearty congrats to Scott for pulling out two of the three claimed players from the pack! Congrats to Akgonzolyn as well, being the only other manager to snag a card from the pack. We did add a couple free agents to the pile for Friday, which is always a bonus in my book.


  1. I hadn't even checked to see who won yet. Congrats!!!

    1. Thanks! I found out as I was driving home after helping my wife in her classroom. Mark graciously let me know that I had won.

  2. I won the Mystery Prize next! :)

    As you are fond to say - Wahoo!! (for both of us)

    1. No worries, man! Sit back and enjoy the show.

  4. Took me FOREVER to get a Bernie (my favorite player), but I'm pretty sure it's one I don't have! I *might* have the Abreu, but yeah, I'll "Wahoo!!" for this one as well.

    1. Haha! Thanks. :-) And, congrats on finally scoring your favorite player!
