11 Wade Davis BASE MINI ZOMG
TDH47 Brandon Phillips TDIH +1

I know, this post has taken me forever. I probably missed the deadline for Gint-A-Cuffs with my procrastination. I couldn't help it, every time I started to write the post Regis stared up at me and peered into my soul. In his eyes I could hear him say "Nice post BUT IS THAT YER FINAL ANSWER???" No! It's not my final answer! I don't know what to write it's toomuchpressure. Dammit, why couldn't Topps have done a card of Merv Griffin instead.

Oh looky, a base mini card. Woo. Does it make the FrankenSet?


A 2006 mini of Ramon Hernandez stays in the binder.

Pack 18:
297 Isaac "Fabulous" Newton
165 Nick "Enigma" Jacoby +1
139 Miguel "Drunky" Cabrera
101 Mark "Houdini" Buehrle
7 Ryan "Gimpy" Howard +1
343 Brad "DL" Penny SP +2
144 Stewart "Oh God my ears are bleeding why does he keep saying booyah oh please make IT STOP" Scott mini black border
TDH44 BJ "Heh heh... BJ" Upton TDIH +1

Oh goody. A black border card of a caricature. He better not make the FrankenSet.


Empty spot in the binder! FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU

Pack 19:
254 Rich Harden
264 Captain Nemo
87 Carl Crawford +1
113 Billy Butler
2 Evereth Cabrera
39 Josh Johnson
171 Michael Young +1
137 Ryan Zimmerman
MM9 Apatosaurus +3
TDH56 Jimmy Rollins TDIH +1

Yep that was a 10 card pack. When I was opening the box this thick pack gave me visions of Rip Cards and Cut autos and crazy thick relics dancing in my head. Instead I got a couple extra base cards. Le sigh. the dino card is nifty though. And how is Michael Young a favorite player and Albert Pujols not?? Crazy game, this Ginter.

Pack 20:
121 Francisco Rodriguez
112 Tyler Bradt
184 Jake Peavy
249 Alfonso Soriano
177 Pedro Feliz
324 Randy Winn +2 -1
222 Gary Gentry RC mini
TDH46 Yovani Gallardo TDIH +1

These packs suuuuuuuuuucked. At least I got three SPs and a couple of base mini rookies. Just not the base mini rookie everyone else wants. So does this one make the FrankenSet?


I forgot to check this one before writing the post. Do you really care?

Ok time to wrap this up.

Most interesting non-scoring card:

Tyler Bradt

I know, I thought it would be Captain Nemo too. A fictional submarine captain doesn't beat a real live person who goes over waterfalls in a kayak though. Sure, I could have chosen Newton, but I used him for a pimp joke up at the top already. Seriously, kayak, waterfall, sploosh. Holy crap.

Most interesting This date in History:

The Treaty of Versailles: The treaty that ended one great war and directly caused a second great war. Appropriate that a peace treaty be on a Brandon Phillips card. What he said was shocking, just shocking. HOW CAN YOU HATE ANYTHING WORSE THAN THE CUBS, BRANDON??? This is madness!

Gint-A-Cuffs total:
Box Topper: 8 points
Pack 1: ???
Pack 2: 3 points
Pack 3: 15 points
Pack 4: 8 points
Pack 5: 3 points
Pack 6: 7 points
Pack 7: 4 points
Pack 8: 10 points
Pack 9: 3 points
Pack 10: bupkis
Pack 11: 7 points
Pack 12: 7 points
Pack 13: ???
Pack 14: ???
Pack 15: ???
Pack 16: ???
Pack 17: 3 points
Pack 18: 5 points
Pack 19: 6 points
Pack 20: 2 points

TOTAL: 91 points + Pack 1, 13, 14, 15, 16's points

Does it really even matter if I add up the rest of the points?? Is there a consolation prize for last place?

Anyone who has ever watched two seconds of sportscenter knows that Stuart Scott's eyes do not look in the same direction. Boo Topps boo!

Regis Philban is what makes me NOT like Ginter this year. I am an anti-Philbit! Add me to the blogroll if you like :
