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

Pack 5

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.

Non-scoring cards:
Brandon League
Ricky Henderson
Buster Posey
Hank Aaron

Not a bad pack of HOFers.

Pack 5 total - 8 points
Running total - 57 points

Pack 6

Ara Parseghian regular mini, -1 point.

Discovery of Electricity, HTP insert, +3 points.  I'm digging these HTP cards.

Jason Heyward, SP +2 points.

Non-scoring cards:
Carl Yastrzemski
J.J. Hardy
Ryan Vogelsong
Jackie Robinson
Brandon Beachy

Pack 6 total - 4 points
Running total - 61 points

Pack 7

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

Non-scoring cards:
Melky Cabrera
Stan Musial
Tim Hudson
Madison Bumgarner
Roberto Clemente

Pack 7 total - 8 points
Running total - 69 points

Pack 8

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

Non-scoring cards:
Michael Morse
Michael Phelps...dude has some serious bling now.
Jeff Francoeur
Edwin Jackson
Wandy Rodriguez

Pack 8 total - 7 points

I'm on pace for 214 points, but it's going to be tough to maintain that pace.
