2015 Gint-A-Cuffs!!! Pack 17

Two thirds of the way complete and sitting at 122 points.  We're still averaging exactly 6.5 points/pack which seems to be extremely good at this point.  This still puts us on pace for 174 points ...  Also, we still have 2 of our expected 3 hits to go!  Let's see what the last 8 packs bring us!

#54 Javier Baez

#239 Zach Britton

#147 Yoenis Cespedes

10th Aniversary Buyback - 2012 #123 Adam Lind +3 Full Sized Buyback

HOLY CRAP!!! I totally forgot about these!  This is the first one of the box and we're expected to get 2 more (one is a mini).  So as long as the box odds hold true and neither of the other two are Yankees, then we've got a decent injection of points coming our way!!!

GS-4 Large Hadron Collider +2 Great Scott!

So... apparently this box only feels like supplying me with Ancient Armory and Great Scott! full sized inserts... whatever, doesn't change the point values.

NNO MINI - #151 Jorge Soler +6 NNO mini

#329 Brett Gardner -1 Yankee nonsense

Gah!!! Somehow this card got overwritten when I saved Ryan Howard's base card.  Alas, you will not get to see this Yankee.  I'm not re-scanning it... its a base card and a Yankee.  Instead, I suppose I can give you real-life Brett.  Here.

How Brett really feels about being a Yankee...

#150 Brody Stevens

Pack total: 10 points
Running total: 132 points

Well!  This pack was all types of fun!  Lots of point cards and, unfortunately, our very first Yankee.  Let's dwell on that for a second.... it took 17 packs of a product to hit a Yankee.  Hallelujah!  Is Topps really changing their ways???  Doubt it...

In other news, we got a freaking JORGE SOLER NNO MINI!!!! Heck yeah!  This box has been a huge success regardless of my final Gint-A-Cuffs score.  So far we have:

  • Jorge Soler NNO mini
  • Willie Cauley-Stein framed mini autograph
  • A case hit mini insert
  • Not to mention 3/4 mini inserts are ones that I still need for set building purposes!
  • Oh... and I still have two hits (expected) left :D
