We're busting together
We hope it ends well
And may find a pack
With more, who can tell?
I guess there's Ginters to claim
We're holding ground
Can we raise our score again?
It's the final countdown...
Okay, pretty far-reaching stretch, I know. But, we are busting into the final three packs of my hobby box. I have 139.5 points and I know someone has already hit 171.6 as a final tally. I just don't see me winning without a major bribe to the ruler of Gint-A-Cuffs (which I am going to offer a bribe because you just never know).
Let's do this and get the pain over with:
GAC Pack 22
Albert Pujols - Angels - Wilsons (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +139.5
Yordano Ventura - Royals - NachosGrandes (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +139.5
Ryan Zimmerman - Nationals - CaptainKirk42s (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +139.5
Christian Yelich SP (#320) - Marlins - Free Agent - GAC +2; Total +141.5
London, United Kingdom - World's Captials - Free Agent - GAC +2; Total +143.5
Allen Craig Mini SP (#347) - Cardinals - Maddings (Wahoo!!) - GAC +3; Total +146.5
Gary Sheffield - Marlins - Chonks (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +146.5
Rafael Palmeiro - Rangers - Tribecards (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +146.5
(Pack total: +7; GAC total +146.5: +2 shortprint; +2 capitals; +3 mini shortprint)
Hey! Not a bad pack for GAC. Had a really nice pack for managers. Some of you pulled some cool players. Congratulations, folks!
Well, we have two packs to go and just 25.2 points to take the lead. haha!!
GAC Pack 23
Mark Teixeira - Yankees (NNOOOO!!!!) - BoRosnys (Wahoo!!) - GAC -1; Total +145.5
Ty Cobb - Tigers - Stealing Homes (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; total +145.5
Lou Brock - Cardinals - Wilsons (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +145.5
Curtis Granderson SP (#331) - Mets - Hadsalls (Wahoo!!) - GAC +2; Total +147.5
Ottawa, Canada - Worlds Capitals - Free Agent - GAC +2; Total +149.5
Lonomia Mini- Deadliest Predators - Free Agent - GAC +3; Total +152.5
Samantha Briggs - Fitness Champion - Free Agent - GAC +0; Total +152.5
Mike Pereira - Broadcaster - Free Agent - GAC +0; Total +152.5
(Pack total: +6; GAC Total +152.5: -1 yankees; +2 shortprint; +2 capitals; +3 predator)
Man, start off with a ding but end up with some pretty cool cards. The predator really stands out with that bright red printing! Wow!
And so, we have come to the end of the box. There is but one pack left to bust open. We have revealed all our expected hits. We've hit some bumps along the way (Yankees, misc dings) but we have also found some very cool cards as well. As part of Gint-A-Cuffs, I get +5 for posting a selfie with my favorite card. I will do that when I post my actual "Final GAC-6 Points" post. I cannot remember if the person with 171.6 included the selfie with that score or not. Hmm... Well, here we go:
Adrian Gonzalez - Dodgers - GCRLs (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +152.5
Jake Marisnick - Marlins - Free Agent - GAC +0; Total +152.5
Brooks Robinson - Orioles - CaptainKirk42s (Wahoo!!) - GAC +0; Total +152.5
Paul Goldschmidt SP (#317) - Diamondbacks - Workmans (Wahoo!!) - GAC +2; Total +154.5
Socotra Archipelago - Natural Wonder - Free Agent - GAC +2; Total +156.5
Casey Kelly Mini A/G Back - Padres - FDNYs (Wahoo!!) - GAC +2; Total +158.5
Mark Roth - Bowler - Free Agent - GAC +0; Total +158.5
Carli Loyd - Soccer Player - Free Agent - GAC +0; Total 158.5
(Pack Total: +6; GAC Total +158.5: +2 shortprint; +2 naturalwonder; +2 mini a/g)
Well, with +5 for a selfie to come, our total is +163.5! All things considered, I think that's a decent score. I'm looking forward to reading some of the other posts and see if anyone in the competition pulls something super rare!
In the meantime, I hope everyone enjoyed the onslaught of Allen and Ginter over the past few days. Congratulations to ALL the managers who scored players/cards and to those who WILL score more when this is all said and done through the next couple drafts. This has been a LOT of fun!!
