Gint-a-Cuffs: These are Not the Packs You are Looking For...

I've finished off half of my Gint-a-Cuffs box (plus the box topper) and racked up 104 points.  If I could score the same amount in the second half I think I might have a chance (assuming no one pulls a rip card or other rare goodie).  At least I have a fighting chance for now...let's see if we can work up a bit of momentum moving into the second half.

Pack 13:
18.  Ryne Sandberg
66.  Roger Clemens
195.  Chris Carpenter
282.  Salvador Perez
291.  Aramis Ramirez
295.  Ryan Braun
Pastime's Pastimes:  Hyun-Jin Ryu
A&G back mini:  225.  Pedro Martinez
I can't figure out why my scanner keeps cutting off the top of the scans all of the sudden...It was working fine up until a few days ago.  Weird (and super annoying).

Not a lot happening in this pack but I was happy to see Clemens is a Red Sox rather than a point deducting Yankee.  The Pastime card and the A&G back mini are each 2 points which means I get a full four points this time.  Not a great beginning to the second half.

Note:  I realized too late that I didn't flip the mini over so there's a scan of the back in all of its A&G goodness.

Pack total:  4 points
Running total:  108 points

Pack 14:
43.  Craig Kimbrel
65.  Fred McGriff
130.  Mike Zunino
131.  Buster Posey
162.  George Kell
237.  James Shields
Pastime's Pastimes:  Giancarlo Stanton
Reg. mini:  285.  Carl Crawford

The Stanton Pastime card is worth 2 points.  That's it.

Pack total:  2 points
Running total:  110 points

Oh my that was a terrible pair of packs.  My per pack average plummeted...and I don't like my chances nearly as much as I did before ripping into the two packs.  Of course, all is not yet lost as I have two more hits lurking in the box (hopefully)!

I'm with Mark. It is one of your best packs yet.
