The Last Episode

So, I finally found some time to review the winner's score.  A correction is to be made.

Brad scored his Mike Trout Wood as (25 + 3) x 1.7 = 47.6.  That is 25 points for the Wood Mini Parallel, plus 3 points for the mini being on the Favorite Player list, times 1.7 for the player on the hit card being on the Favorite Player list.

I would score it like this: (25 x 1.7) + 3 = 45.5.  I'm reducing Brad's final tally by 2.1 points bringing him to a solid 193.5 and still the winner.

Yes, the scoring rule was not especially clear and will be modified for next year's GAC.

As Gint-A-Cuffs VII Champion you'll be receiving a hobby box of 2015 Allen & Ginter, provided by our sponsor, Topps.

Faith finished up in last place with a score of 124.6.  The Commissioner would like to offer a consolation prize of a hobby box of 2015 Allen & Ginter, provided by our sponsor, Topps.

But wait.  There's more.  Topps offered three boxes for me to hand out.  So I pulled out the randomizer.

Brad and Faith were excluded for obvious reasons.  Since this is the seventh edition of GAC I pushed the button seven times.

So, Brad, Faith, and David, I'll need your shipping address.  You can email me at mark DOT aubrey AT gmail DOT com.  I hope to send out the packages this week.

I'd like to say that this was another fun contest.  Thanks for participating.   See  you next year.

Well, that was quick

Those two months flew by.  Another year of Gint-A-Cuffs is in the books.


It looks like Brad might be our winner, with 195.6 points for his box.

I say "might" because the Commissioner needs to verify the score.  That should be completed in a few days and then the winner can be officially announced and prizes awarded.

Another shout out to Topps is in order.  They have faithfully supported this madness since the beginning.  Thank you, Clay, and your crew.
