You have questions?

We've got answers. Just not now.

This has been a busy past few days. Late last Thursday evening my mother-in-law passed away.  I do not share this with you as "Woe is me" information, I just wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten about Gint-A-Cuffs.  This is also not the place to share with you what a wonderful woman she was.

Answers will be coming, but not right tonight.

On a better note, the Grand Prize has arrived.  Photos later.  It is a hobby box of 2012 A&G from Topps.  You've all seen them.  Maybe no photo.

Let's Get It On

 I've assembled the 2012 Rules.  I'm sure that there's some sort of weird subset that I overlooked.  Or didn't remove something that was in last year's set.  If you find them, let me know and I'll correct.

We're still missing one participant's favorite player.  I've contacted him but haven't yet heard back.

Start the busting and start scoring.  Remember, you need to show the scoring cards on your blog.  Some will show only the cards, some will show the whole stinking packs.  I don't care.  Just bust, bribe, and blog.

A little help?

Does anyone have the checklists that were included in the hobby boxes?  I'd like to see the scans.  Also, a scan of a wrapper with the odds of inserts and hits would be nice.


Rules are getting closer.  Don't give up hope.  And Topps has informed me that they've shipped the grand prize.  It should be arriving at my house tomorrow.

Last Chance for GAC Boxes

The guys over at Community Gum are declaring the last chance on good priced boxes of 2012 Topps Allen and Ginter. 

They're a great sponsor, so if you haven't yet purchased, go now.  Clickety, clickety, click.

Official rules being rolled out this coming weekend.

Ginter has hit the streets

Okay, Cuffites, it appears that Topps has released the 2012 Allen & Ginter upon us.

I need the participants to list their Favorite Players and their Favorite Team.

As in previous years, this will affect the scoring.  Specific scoring rules are being addressed (which means I haven't yet started to work on them).  Scoring rules will be posted on or about Saturday, July 21.  All scores by participants shall be posted by midnight, Saturday, September 1.  That's Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Sign ups to participate shall close on Saturday, July 21.  I need a definite "I'm in".  Not a, "I'll do it if so and so does it" or "I'll do it if funding comes my way".  I appreciate those issues, but I don't have time to see if Timmy is playing or to hack your bank account.  You're either in or you're not.  Thanks.

I'll be doing some updating of the pages over the next few days.  Remember, bribes are never a bad thing.

Let's hope that the Mayans got this one wrong.

Ginter themed interview

The Cardboard Connection has a very nice interview with Topps' Matt Perrone, a Brand Manager.

Go read it and then buy a hobby box from Community Gum.

Here's the checklist (pdf file).
