Gint-A-Cuffs: Packs 5-8, Gunning for the Lead
Let's get going with the next four packs in this year's version of Gint-A-Cuffs.
Point total so far - 49 points
Adrian Beltre, my favorite team, +1 point, SP, +2 points, total +3 points
Chipper Jones, favorite player, +2 points. It looks someone took an eraser to Chipper's cap.
I forgot to scan a Roberto Clemente Sketch card, +3 points.
Not a bad pack of HOFers.
Pack 5 total - 8 points
Running total - 57 points
Ara Parseghian regular mini, -1 point.
Discovery of Electricity, HTP insert, +3 points. I'm digging these HTP cards.
Jason Heyward, SP +2 points.
Pack 6 total - 4 points
Running total - 61 points
Mike Schmidt mini, favorite player, +3 points
1 World Trade Center, WTB insert, +3 points. Kinda got some chill bumps when I saw this one.
Adron Chambers SP, +2 points
Pack 7 total - 8 points
Running total - 69 points
Joakim Soria, A&G back mini, +2 points
Empire State Building, WTB insert, +3 points. It was pretty cool to get this one after I got the 1 World Trade Center one earlier.
Alexei Ramirez, SP, +2 points
Michael Phelps...dude has some serious bling now.
Pack 8 total - 7 points
Running total - 76 points
I'm on pace for 214 points, but it's going to be tough to maintain that pace.
