This is it. The final pack of my Gint-a-Cuffs box. I need a monster pack...and I will say that this box ends on a pretty nice hit (with emphasis on the pretty).
Box total so far: 76 points
2. Ryan Braun
55. Hector Rondon
128. Aroldis Chapman (-1 Yankee now...sob)
140. Caleb Cotham (+1 favorite team)
Numbers Game: 55. Ryan Braun
Reg. mini: 271. A.J. Pollock
Framed Autograph: AGA-MSH. Maria Sharapova (+7 points)
Pack total: 7 points
Final Box Total: 83 points**
And for posterity:
Final Yankee Count: 14 (!)
That does it for me. 83 points - I was hoping to at least get to 80 which I (barely) did. I won't be winning this year though, will I?
Due to a few scoring changes via the commissioner of Gint-a-Cuffs, I have to modify my box total (in a positive direction at least):
My boxloader was on the favorite player list and the commish says that's a hit now. So I get 6.8 points (4 x 1.7) rather the 6 that I thought I earned. Net gain: +0.8 points.
The Numbers Game insert cards are now worth +2 points each (I was counting them as 0 points). Each box has 12 Numbers Game cards so that is another 24 points for me. Sure, that sounds good but really every box gets those 24 points so the result is basically a wash. Even so, that does boost me over the 100 point threshold.
Final Box Total (unless the commissioner makes some more changes): 83 + 0.8 + 24 = 107.8 points.
