Don't say I didn't warn you...The Gint-A-Cuffs Prize box giveaway

I told you I was giving away the hits from my Gint-A-Cuffs prize box against my better judgement.  I said that because I had already busted the box.

You'll see what I mean in a few seconds.

The partakers in this little exercise are:

Chris Reed--Reds
Dions IP Autos only--Angels
Matt Pederson--Cubbies
Chris--A's?  Funny
gcrl--twins?  Why the questions marks fellas?
Cardhobbyist--Braves?!  Now an exclamation point as well! Exciting!!!!!!!
J. Meeks--Nationals
Mark Aubrey--Indians!
Captain Canuck--Just like my Canadian friend to pick two teams.  I'm giving him his first choice of Pittsburgh.
Backstop Cards--Padres!
The Angels in Order--Red Sox
Chucks Used Cards--Yankees
JediJeff--White Sox!
Daniel Wilson--Diamondbacks!  Man, this is getting exciting!!!!!!
Baseball Dad--Tigers
Need More Cardboard--Mariners
Night Owl--Metsies...WTH?
Swing and a Pop-up--Giants
Greg Zakwin--Royals

This is going to be anticlimactic, so let's just do it.

I can't believe no one picked the Phillies.  Even Roy seems a bit disheartened.

Mark Aubrey, aka the Commish, wins the big one...or maybe it's just this Justin Masterson full size jersey relic.

The final hit was another framed mini jersey relic.  It was damaged pretty badly on the bottom so I'm trying to get Topps to replace it.  If (and when) they do, I'll give it out according to the list above.

Overall, the box wasn't that great.  No hand numbered minis, no autos, no 1/1 card in the lid.   Just three plain jersey relics.  It was however, VERY  much appreciated and I thank TOPPS and Mark Aubrey again for the prize.


  1. my question mark came from the idea that i am not sure the twins are considered a major league team anymore.

    1. Ouch. So sad. They are my second favorite team.

  2. Dang it. I would have won, but it's an artifact and a dang Phillie so glad I didn't. I seriously was going to say Philly but with all the entries there I could have sworn I saw it mentioned, plus I really didn't want to win a Phillies hit. I think there were only two teams not guessed.

  3. Hey! You said there was a hit from each league and NO WHERE did it say you may only pick ONE team....

    True to form though.... even with two teams, I still struck out.

    Thank you. It's hard work being me.

    1. You are right of course. I did say one and not the other.

  4. "Metsies" (from Urban Dictionary): An alternative name that refers to the New York Mets, almost exclusively used by fans of the team. To be used in a loving, playful way, with hints of desperation, despair, and hopelessness.

    Also, Keith Hernandez calls them the Metsies in his broadcasts all the time.

    1. It fits. I shall use it in the future. We don't get Keith and his broadcasts down this far south.

  5. That looked just like my one box of A&G this year.

  6. can't believe I missed that post!! cause you know me and my Phils!! Oh well, been a bit under the weather this week and haven't spent much time on the computer!!

  7. I can't believe I let Mark beat me to that !!

    Congrats to you Sir !

    1. You snooze, you lose. I was going to pass it on to David, but maybe I'll let you two fight over it. Amuse me.

    2. I actually have another that I pulled from a blaster. I'll let you give yours to Davis and I'll hook up dad.

    3. That works for me, but I really wanted them to fight over it.

  8. Well, for what it's worth, I got mentioned in a post at PATP. That's worth something, right?

  9. and I would like to make a trade for that Halladay if it's available... just let me know what you are looking for and I'll find it...

    1. Something Ranger flavored would do nicely.

  10. I can get my grubby little paws on a Fleer Freshink Ruben Mateo auto or a Doug Davis SPX auto. Either one of those work for you?
