How about the Mini Bill Walton SP (#350)?The Commissioner answers:
Yeah, how about that Mini Bill Walton? It amuses me.
J. Meeks asked:
Another question (sorry if I'm stupid): Does the Bill Walton Mini #350 count the same as #100? Gracias!The Commissioner answers:
Ah, I see. There are two Bill Walton cards in the set. That was foolish of Topps. I am ruling that only the mini Bill Walton (card #100) will get bonus points. The Mini Bill Walton SP (card # 350) gets the standard +3 bonus for being a SP. No, you're not stupid. De nada.
Just to clarify, is the Yankee penalty cumulative? For example, if I pull a SP Yankee or an Across the Years Yankee, do I get 2 points for the SP or insert and then subtract one point for a total of 1 point, or do I just get a flat out -1 points with no modifiers? I had been scoring it as getting credit for the SP or insert status, but I have seen others score it as a flat -1 for it being a Yankee.
The Commissioner answers:
Good question. This trips participants up every year. It is a cumulative modifier. Let's say you pull a Yogi Berra (card #327) base card. This is a Short Print. You would score + 2 points for the SP and -1 point for Yogi being a Yankee.
The Ginter Godfather asked:
In years past they were cumulative (At least that is how the winner of last year won, he counted a Mantle WIN as -1, but ended up with a +1 net from it to edge out the competition by 2. Looking for clarification on this as well.The Commissioner answers:
Yes, last year's winner was decided in the way that GG described. It is cumulative again this year.
