Gint-A-Cuffs Take 2: 17 - 20 Beardy's Gaze

I'm starting to think that I may not beat Beardy or the Nacho Cheese Man. This doesn't surprise me. Beardy made the rules. And, look at that guy. Look at his eyes. Those beautiful blue eyes that you can get lost in for days. And that beard that just begs to be touched. Rough, but silky smooth at the same time...uhh...wait...uhh...I mean...You can just tell that he's up to something and not to be trusted.

See. He hypnotized me or something.

YES!!! A Brock Yates Auto!!! Just the very one that I was trying to pull. So in 2 boxes I've gotten 2 autos. One is the horse guy, the other is the guy who won the Cannonball Run. Don't get me wrong, I love the Cannonball Run more than most. But if I'm getting a Cannonball Run auto, is it too much to ask that it's Jack Elam?

So that's 2 autos, zero ballplayers.

And, I know at this point a shouldn't complain about a 5 point card, but, A Bathtub? Really? Are you freakin' kidding me with a bathtub card?

And my second hit of the box is a guy named Brock that's not Brock Landers. Not good times.

I guess that you are all starting to see the "historic nature" of my box.

It gets better. Oh, it gets much better.
