As commissioner of the ever so popular Gint-A-Cuffs I figured that I should make some sort of statement regarding the current status of the 2012 edition of Gint-A-Cuffs.

I'm mulling over :
  • what to call it
  • what the rules are
  • getting new artwork
  • even having it at all
So, I need you, loyal participants, to weigh in.

Is there enough interest to even put forth the effort?  I was highly disappointed by the lack of commissioner bribes last year.  The repeat winner could have been prevented, but no one stepped up.  Commissioner Landis is dead and Selig could be less interested in this.  Bribe me.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.


  1. I'm definitely in...I just have to figure out a way to have my A&G boxes shipped so that my wife has no idea I bought them.

    Some potential names:

    GAC IV: Recession-Proof
    GAC IV: Obamacuffs
    GAC IV: Occupy Gint-a-Cuffs
    GAC IV: The 1%
    GAC IV: The 99%
    GAC IV: Metta Card Peace
    GAC IV: A Better Checklist than the 2012 Presidential Campaign

    The Rules: yeah...good luck with that.

    Getting New Artwork: I may draft something up...though mixing it up is always good.

    even having it at all: Um, yes.

  2. Yes, please. Had a blast last year, even though my box came in last.

    I'm willing to offer one already opened pack of '12 Bowman as the first bribe.

  3. Obamacuffs rolls off the tongue the easiest, but Metta Card Peace is pretty funny too.

  4. I won't compete this year but I'd be willing to help in some other way. Can't win 'em all - that's no fun for anyone else!

  5. I'm down again. And my bribes are pretty good, so I've heard.

  6. After last year's disappointment, I'm going to refrain from buying any A&G until I know for sure it's not absolute junk... so I don't think I'd be "in" in time to qualify... Hope everyone enjoys the fun... I'll stick with my stacks and stacks of Gypsy Queen... haha!

  7. Still undecided. It's a good time, and I enjoy it far more than any other set, but we'll see how broke I am.

  8. I'd like to be in. I'm making you a sandwich as I type.

  9. I'd like to jump in, but I'm still trying to figure out if I'll be able to afford a box. Anyone know if the guys @ Community Gum will be offering up boxes again?

  10. Count me in. I actually don't like Ginter as much as some other sets - but I love doing the Gint-A-Cuffs!

    Whatever sandwich PATP makes, I will offer a better one. If he goes with Peanut Butter & Jelly? I'll go Turkey & Swiss. If he goes Turkey & Swiss? I'll go Beef & Mozz. I won't go as high as a Philly Cheese steak, though. I'd end up eating it before sending.

  11. What I would call it?

    What the rules are?
    Rip packs and get/lose points (I'll leave the details up to you)

    Getting new artwork?
    Sorry, but my Photoshop skills are an abomination

    Even having it at all?
    Please? I'm definitely in for this year as I had a blast doing it last year.

    I'll throw in a pack of Skittles for you. Taste the Rainbow.

  12. In. Hell I was rookie of the year and led the league in annoying post questions, right? Plus I have bought into a beer distributorship. Watcha drinking?

  13. I am in this year... My first year in - I didn't buy a box in time, last year I posted a third of my packs, this year I think I can get 2/3...
    As for bribes - I got a C for ya Mark!!!
    OCCUPY Gint A Cuffs!!!!
