Thanks to Topps for sponsoring this fine event.

Thanks to Beardy for coming up with such a crazed idea.

Did I mention Topps?

Patsearcher, of In Search of Pat the Bat asked about a David Wright Relic (Glove) and the scoring on it. After much research I have decided that it, indeed, is a Short Print and should be awarded the points that Patsearcher gave it (12 points x 5 for favorite player list). This still does not put him over the top. I think that all the questions have been answered.

The official scoreboard will be updated after my staff combs the 'Net for any hidden scores.

But, I shall, at this time, declare Beardy, with a whopping score of 347, the winner of Gint-A-Cuffs. In the name of gamesmanship, he has declined any prize.

As Commissioner, I am then forced to make a decision. To whom should the prize go? I must say, it would be easy to select the next highest score. But I have been calling for bribes and graft for two months now. As I look at the list of gifts that people have sent and weigh it in my mind, I'm appalled to see that no one, save for Beardy, went that extra mile and even bothered to send me anything. Sure, some virtual egg sandwiches, but hey, that doesn't get you much. Nothing, actually.

So, I must return to the scoring list.

FanofReds, or Chris as he's known to some, stumbled in with 333 points. Enough to claim the prize, graciously provided by Topps.

Stay tuned for next year's installment:

  1. It's been fun, even though I'm sick to death of A&G cards now, and I still don't have the whole base set.

  2. Let me know if I can ship any your way. I'm donating my box to charity, blogger charity.
