A Nice Ginter Blaster, I Really Should Have Done Gint-a-Cuffs (Scored for Fun)

If you're going to the National and leaving later in the week, please help me out and checkout this post.

Just for fun, I will score this Ginter blaster with Gint-A-Cuffs rules with my favorite team being the Giants and my favorite player being Tim Lincecum. Unfortunately, most of the cards have a ding in the lower right corner.

I should've signed up this year... If you multiply by 3 and add the minimum of 30 points from hits in a hobby box, I would have 255 points and be in the lead... Not to mention the extra cards per pack.

I'll take on any challengers if anyone else picks up a blaster.

  1. You should definitely get in on Gint-A-Cuffs next year. This was the first time I participated and I had a blast even though I didn't win.
