A winner is you (plural) - GAC VIII

After spending hours looking at the entries, my crack accounting team has determined that the scores presented are accurate and that Brad's score of 153.5 is the winner of Gint-A-Cuffs VIII.

Congrats.  I had to triple check the rules about that double rip card.  The stars aligned in your favor when you bought that box.  Good choice on Kenta Madea as your Favorite Player.

Brad, a 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter Hobby Box, graciously provided by our sponsor, Topps, will be headed to you.

Now, the last place participant that offered points is the Ginter Godfather.  With a name like that, and a blog that surfaces but once a year to be involved with Gint-A-Cuffs, you'd think that points would be flowing.  Not this year.  But they were just low enough to earn you the consolation prize of a 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter Hobby Box to be sent your way.

Now, for the mystery winner.  I took the remaining participants that entered a score, randomized them eight times (GAC VIII) and the magic numbers selected Faith.  I'll be sending something special from my personal collection of hoo-haw.

Winners, please send me your current mailing address and I'll get the items out this next week.

Thank you all for participating.  I look forward to next year.

Fact Checking

Gint-A-Cuffs is officially closed.  Now is the time for the Commissioner to wake from his slumber and fact check the scores that have been posted, possibly make corrections, wait for the bribes to come flooding in, then declare an actual winner.

The contestant with the highest total will be receiving a hobby box of 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter, thoughtfully provided by our sponsor, Topps.

The contest with the lowest total will also be receiving a similar hobby box.  By similar I mean the same darn thing.

I'll randomize the other contestants who submitted a score and they'll be receiving something out of my own stash of collectibles.

Thanks for participating.
