Halfway home! Here's the plan for the rest of the week: Get the first half of the box in my binder. Go over the posts and figure out the Gint-a-Cuffs scoring. Post all that mess to get caught up. Then... A SURPRISE. But for now, here's hit #2 from the box.
230 Torii Hunter
246 General Custer
171 Brett Anderson
312 AJ Burnett SP +5 points
AGR-JB Jay Bruce jersey +8 points x 5 Favorite Player = 40 points
292 Eric Chavez A&G Mini +2 points
NP43 Jose Lopez NP
BRUUUUUUUCE. Relic + favorite player bonus = ??? I'll figure it out soon enough. That's two of three hits in the box though. Rootin' for a real kickass one for #3. Torii looks apprehensive on his card and that makes me sad. I guess lightning just doesn't strike twice. The General Custer card if pretty cool although the permanent association I have for him is a dicey Robin Williams joke about former Georgia Governor Lester Maddox. The rest of the pack is uninteresting except for the fact that I just realized that the first half of the box has a run of National Pride cards from number 43 to 52. I have a feeling that National Pride is not going to be an easy set to build by ripping packs.
And, cause I gotta show 'em:
Chavez A&G mini that I hope gets me more points than I lose...
And this rather meh SP. An SP's an SP, I suppose.
