Getting Gint-A-Cuffs 2 Underway Boxtopper + Packs 1-4

Boy, if that post title doesn't draw in the readers I don't know what will. It sure builds anticipation doesn't it? Well, maybe not considering how many people have already posted their boxes. Still, this is my first time to participate, so I'm excited.

The box of Ginter I opened is the first unopened box I've busted since 2002. I videoed the break and will post it AFTER I've posted all the packs. Grading these is somewhat labor intensive, but fun. I won't be doing to much narration considering most of you have seen this stuff already.

So, let's get to it!
