Gint A Cuffs IV: Packs 1-6

Since I was just starting out as a blogger last year when this contest was rolling, I had no idea what "Gint A Cuffs" was, or what everyone was doing.  Well, once I figured it out I told myself that if the contest was run again this year, I wasn't going to let the opportunity to play pass me by.

Hopefully, I will not butcher the scoring of my hobby box as I go here.

With all that said....a Gint A Cuffs we shall go!!

  1. That Gwynn is spectacular. But the question remains, did it make your Insanity Set? :)

  2. Excellent pull on the Gwynn, Robert!

  3. Congrats Robert!! That is a great pull.

  4. Wow, you're off to a great start!

  5. That's an awesome pull! I have a feeling that may put you over the top for winning Gint-A-Cuffs!


    That Gwynn is so awesome. I don't even like the Padres and I'm drooling. :-) Congrats on that one, and good luck in the rest of your box. Does that count as one of your 3 hits, or do you think you will get 3 more?

  7. Congrats on the Gwynn! You're off to a great start!

  8. I don't even understand how I stopped up right here, but I thought this submit used to be great. I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger if you happen to are not already. Cheers!
