Gint-A-Cuffs 2, Old Planter Boogaloo

Coming soon to a blog near you.

In about five weeks the Topps Allen & Ginter 1887-2010 World Champions Color Picture Cards will be loosed upon the public.

And that means that it will be time for Gint-A-Cuffs 2, Old Planter Boogaloo.

I'll be your commissioner. Again.

What does that mean for you? Another chance to get in on the best box break competition since, well, the original Gint-A-Cuffs.

You want parallels? We got 'em. Wood. Cloth. Bazookas. NoNos. Black Border. A&G Backs.

You want Top Loaders? We got 'em. With Autos.

Lords of Olympus? Got 'em.

World's Greatest Wordsmiths? Got 'em.

This Day In History? Got 'em.

National Animals? Got 'em.

Monsters Of The Mesozoic? Got 'em.

Sailors Of The Seven Seas? Got 'em.

All that, and more.

Please note that by mentioning the various card possibilities available in the 2010 A&G set, it does not mean that you will get them in your box. Probably not. Fair warning.

Now, leave me alone. I have to go and figure out some sort of scoring method. Perhaps a tweak of last year's rules. More than likely I'll have to scrap that and start a fresh.

Any scoring ideas will be received and given the weight that I feel is necessary. Beardy, having created this monster last year, will be relinquishing some of his duties so that he can more fully concentrate on winning. Again. I'll still be relying on him for some pointers, but I've found out that his bribes are full of hot air and I ignore them.

Speaking of bribes I was rather disappointed in the bribe department last year. You all are big boys and girls. Step it up this year. Please.

We're working on several goodies for prizes. And perhaps some other goodies, too.

Please leave your scoring comments below.



  1. I'm expecting to get a dinosaur bone this year and epic win this thing. Fair warning to everyone else. Your base belong to us.

  2. I want in this year!!! What do you have to do? I missed the boat last year...

  3. Last year I spectated this event, I see it more as scouting though.
    This year, I plan on entering and winning this event.

  4. Yeah, I'm with CT - what do I do to enter? What do I do once I enter? I have a couple other questions, too. Namely, how do I find the Count? Once I do, how do I find you again? Once I find you again, how do I escape?

  5. My box started off so promising last year... then ended with such a resounding thud. I decided rather than post the carnage, I would spare everyone my disapointment and not post the second half.

    This year I WILL post the whole box! (Just like I am going to send you your contest winnings from last year...:)

  6. Well, this seems to be the year of the new guys.I'm fresh off my baseball vacation and ready to battle for the ROY award !

  7. It's on bitches, and this year I'm letting Mark run things, so I can win AND take home the prize.
