207 - Ross ( Design on Deck )I didn't have a contingency plan for a tie. I quickly looked to my inbox to see if bribes were offered. Nothing outstanding. Get it together, guys. You want to win? Toss something substantial my way.
207 - Play at the Plate ( Play at the Plate )
Then I started to look at the actual GAC posts to see if the cards were scored correctly. During the contest I tried not to look at GAC posts. I don't want to be influenced in any way (except bribes - did I mention bribes enough?) if I had to make a scoring decision or ruling. During the review I found myself chuckling a few times. I like the cards and the way that they were presented.
Pack 23, to be specific. Ross figured:
WIN79 Mickey Mantle (NYY) -1That card should be scored as:
-1 Any YankeesSo it should be a +1, for a net gain of +2 for the pack (and the box). Which places Ross as the winner with 209 points.
+2 What's In A Name? 1:2 (+1 more if the player is on Your Favorite Team or +2 if it is a Favorite Player or +4 if it is Your Favorite Player)
