Housekeeping Duties

Time to address some of the details of Gint-A-Cuffs V.

The last day to enter this year's contest will be on Wednesday, August 7, 2013.  No exceptions.

I still have a few discount coupons from our official Dealer Sponsor, Dave and Adam's Card World.  Let me know if you'd like one.  Yes, to use it you need to be an active participant in GACV.

Thanks to our Main Sponsor, Topps, we have three hobby boxes of 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter to be used as prizes.  I'm still mulling some ideas in my head on how they will be given.

Favorite Players, Favorite Teams.  Some of you are very, very anxious to select your FP/FT.  Please look at the checklist provided by The Cardboard Connection.  Your favorite player might be Cy Seymour, but if he's not part of the checklist, he's not going to get you any points.  The selection of your Favorite Player affects everyone in the contest.  The selection of your Favorite Team only affects your points.

Even though you might have 'claimed' your FP/FT in previous comments, please post a comment on the 2013 Participants' page.

I'm still tweaking the 2013 rules.  Patience, people, patience.

The contest will officially start one week after Topps ships the product.  A tentative ship date is Wednesday, August 7, 2013.  Hey, that coincides with the last day to join the contest.  The contest would officially start on August 14, 2013, with it wrapping up on Friday, September 27, 2013.  That's a bit over six weeks to get display your point cards.

I'm sure that there will be questions about scoring.  We'll address those as they arise.

  • A week to sign up
  • Claim your FP/FT now
  • Patronize our sponsors
  • Keep calm
