Good evening, folks! Tonight, I am starting to bust open the Hobby Box of Allen and Ginter for this year's Gint-A-Cuffs. As usual, I barely understand all the ins and outs of scoring for Gint-A-Cuffs, so we'll just hope for the best. All cards will be scanned.
The box loader is an oversized card of:
Chris Davis (BL-10) - Orioles - Chonks (Wahoo!!)
(Pack Total: +8, GAC Total: +8)
(Update: Mark awards this +8 as oversized box loader, totals adjusted accordingly)
I have no idea how this gets scored. Is this an oversized reprint? Is it just a box loader? I dunno. I'll have to ask Mark about it. Anyway, congrats to the Chonks for scoring this cool card!
Next up, our first actual pack:
Travis D'Arnaud - Mets - Hadsalls (Wahoo!!) - GAC: +0, Total +8
Hiroki Kuroda - Yankees - BoRosnys (Wahoo!!) - GAC: -1, Total +7
Nolan Ryan - Rangers - Otakus (Wahoo!!) - GAC: 0; Total +7
Hank Aaron - Braves - Dayfs (Wahoo!!) - GAC: 0; Total +7
Miguel Cabrera Pastime's Pastimes - Tigers - Workmans (Wahoo!!) - GAC: +2; Total +9
Iron Sheik Mini Black Border - Free Agent - GAC: +4; Total +13
Larry King - Free Agent - GAC: 0; Total +13
Michael Eisner - Free Agent - GAC: 0; Total +13
(Pack Total: +5, GAC Total: +13: -1 yankees; +2 pastimes; +3 mini black; +1 sheik)
Wow, we were rolling along for Pack-A-Daily there! Kind of a slump for G-A-C, though we snagged a mini black border and a Pastimes card! Congrats managers from our first pack of 2014 Allen and Ginter!
I decided that each card would be live on its own merit for the Pack-A-Daily - as currently defined. For example, if there were any team logos, then the person with that logo drafted gets the card. Same holds true for mascots and anything else we've already uncovered. If I come across something not yet defined, then I will define it and we'll go from there.
(What is GAC, anyway?)
