Gint-A-Cuffs Rip Card Result and Final









Results of the Rip Card: Laser Show Dustin Pedroia SP



Rip Card Additional Points: 10


Final Total: 195


Thoughts:

  • The Rip card was kind of a bummer. Nothing against Pedroia, other than he plays for the Red Sox, but I was obviously hoping for something better, like a auto. Oh well.
  • The overall design is OK, I guess. It's all "Allen And Gintery" and whatnot. I guess it's just a little underwhelming after 4 years or whatever. I don't know what else they could do and still call it Ginter, though.
  • I had 2 packs without a Mini, which was strange. One of them might have been the Rip Card (I can't remember) so maybe they are counting the mini inside there. I was just shorted in another pack. I got 2 minis in the last pack, though, so I either was only shorted 1 or came out even in the end. In light of that, forget I mentioned it at all.
  • I couldn't name my favorite player Grady Sizemore because he was taken. Despite the fact that I named my first and only born "Grady", concessions could not be made. So I went with Evan Longoria. I mean, who doesn't like Longoria? And he had card in the hits department as a possibility, so that's who I picked. As a fan of a team that until recently endured Jhonny Peralta at the hot corner I allowed myself to dream.
  • I pulled no cards of Longoria.
  • None
  • That's OK, I didn't pull a Sizemore either.
  • I only pulled 1 Indian in the box.
  • The entire damn box.
  • One Indian.
  • One
  • Mark my words, Lebron James is going to rot in hell. I didn't pull any of his cards either.
  • I am ready...
  • ...for Justin Masterson to stop sucking.
  • After ripping the Rip Card, I had thoughts of pulling a Billy Bob Thornton and "fixing it". If I knew a kid who looked Like Thurman Murman I would.
  • Seriously? A lousy Pedroia Mini?
  • Oh yeah, No Stupid Stephen Strasburg either. So Glad that box cost me $20 more than it should have.
  • Stupid dumb ass people going nuts for Strasburg as if Mark Prior and Joba Chamberlain and Todd Van Poppel never existed.
  • Those dumb asses deserve what is inevitably coming to them.
  • Seriously, I'm not kidding. Lebron James is going to hell. Mark it dudes.
  • Overall, my box was pretty good. I guess it puts me in about 3rd place as of right now, assuming I scored it properly, which I probably didn't.
  • I think I'm pretty close though.
Far out man, sir.
