Wow! Hard to believe my very first Tribe-or-no-Tribe leads the pack after all these years. How long will it last? Keep reading to find out!
What are the rules?
I bust open a pack (or packs) of cards and try to get as many Indians cards as I can out of the pack. Certain cards get positive scores and certain others will get a negative score. It's that easy. I stole the concept from WhiteSoxCards, who does a Sox or No Sox.
+0.5 points for each card in the pack not falling into the following:
+2.0 points for relic, auto, serial (only +1.0 if card is a trap)
+1.0 point for any Thome card in non-Tribe uni
+2.0 points for any Triber card (pictured in Tribe uni, otherwise normal scoring)
-1.0 point for each trap (Braves or Reds are traps for my game)
-0.5 points if card features more than one team or no team at all
I tally up the raw score and divide it by the number of cards used to get the raw score. That will give me the Calculated Score. I will use that score to rank packs from first to worst (the higher the score, the better).
