2012 Dealer Announced

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that the guys from Community Gum have agreed to be the Dealer Sponsor for the 2012 Gint-A-Cuffs.

They'll be selling a hobby box for $93.95, which works out to $84.95 (the same price as some other online dealers) but with shipping. Illinois residents will have to add sales tax (paypal will do it automatically), but all out of state players will not. Then, of course, they'll ship them out as soon as they get them in.

Community Gum has a full 12 box case loaded into the button, but they are limiting it to one box per Gint-A-Cuffs participant so that everyone has an equal chance. They may open it up if they still have leftover boxes closer to contest time.

All transactions are between the participants and Community Gum.

Please continue to support them and the hobby.

GAC IV, we're on

Looks like Gint-A-Cuffs IV is on.  I had a conversation with the online dealer last evening.  They're working out a few more minor details and should be ready to announce this week.

I just received word from Topps.  They are graciously going to be our main prize sponsor.  Thank you, Topps.

I'm sticking with a Mayan theme.  No witty catchphrases have come to mind, but I'm sure BRIBES something will eventually.

Similar to last year, GAC won't officially begin until about a week after the product hits the streets.

Rules will be vaguely the same.  Start thinking about your Favorite Player and Favorite Team.  I'll start working on the card points, changing out the design, etc.

Let's get this party started.
