I've been a poor Commissioner this year. I haven't been giving much attention to Gint-A-Cuffs.
I can make excuses all day long, but I won't.
I will apologize, though. I'm sorry. I'm sorry I haven't answer questions quicker, been more of a promoter, interacted more. For those things, and probably more that aren't on my radar, I'm sorry.
So, the close of GACX draws nigh. Too nigh, tonight. So, let's have a decree party.
I, Commissioner of Gint-A-Cuffs, decree that the new contest end will be Tuesday night, October 2, 2018, at 11:59pm, on the East Coast. That's a two day extension.
That will help those still wondering why I haven't ruled on the Glow In The Dark cards.
My decree? They shall be worth +3 points, in addition to any card point value (FP / FT / Yankee).
Now, for some answers to some linger comments...

Do inserts of someone's favorite player / my favorite team count as anything additional? Like an Ohtani Fantasy Goldmine.
Also, does a Yankee box loader only count half? I see the hits are ½, but not the box loaders....
The Commissioner answers: GCA, thanks for playing along. There are not N00b questions. Yes, the FP of any other contestant will score you points (1.7x). It is a bit confusing, depending whether the FP is a base card, a mini, or a hit. Yes, a Yankee box loader counts half the points of the regular box loader. In this case, the box loader is considered a hit.

The Commissioner answers: Tom, thanks. I think. Back in the 1980s I remember there was a syndicated card / hobby column called, Ask Babe. People would write in with questions and Babe would answer. Maybe I could do that. Sort of like a Frasier Crane call-in show. Except that I don't want to talk to people. Hmmm.
2 days, people.
