I was pretty excited about this card and when I pulled it I had no clue as to it’s rarity. I believe the beard cards were falling once per case. That said, I was miffed the commish appointed only 4 points, but, thems the rules.

So there you have it. After 2/3rds of my Ginter box, I’m averaging a ridiculous 6.56 points per pack. That puts me on pace for a grand total of 157.5 points. Will my last third pick up the pace? Will I finish Gint-a-Cuffs in last place? Only time will tell…but it doesn’t look good.

    That’s a sweet set of packs. The Fielder and Cano are good relics to get (even if a yank is /2). I would suggest contacting Beardy at the Mojo Beard with that Lincoln. I think he may be after that set, unless, of course, you are keeping it.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve traded away most of anything with value in order to obtain the base set so just about everything that anyone could possibly want is already gone. I pulled the Fielder and Cano a couple days after the home run derby and all star game, so I was pretty excited to get both the game mvp and the derby champ in one box.
