Ladies and gentlemen, you are now in for a treat! The official scoring of Gint-A-Cuffs III: Release the Kraken has begun as the official rules have been posted on the official Gint-A-Cuffs blog. So we are going to run down, pack by pack, what I pulled in this year’s 2011 Allen & Ginter baseball. If you saw my official personal review of 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter baseball, then you have seen what I have pulled. But I must now go pack by pack and score the cards for the purpose of winning this prestigious contest. Hey, I want a free box of A&G to pull more awesomeness.
So here we go.

Ana Julaton, BJ Upton, Bobby Abreu, Angel Pagan, JD Drew (+1 Team), Kurt Suzuki (+2 SP), Dustin Pedroia mini (Ginter back) (+3 Team and A&G Back), Nick Swisher Hometown Heroes (+0 HH and Yankee)

So my grand total after my first 5 packs is 34 points. I have no idea if that is good or bad or anything. I’m just happy I got a lot of Red Sox cards for my PC and a mini Jon Lester for my PC. There is plenty more Gint-A-Cuffs action coming soon. What will packs 6 – 10 reveal? You already know if you watched my review. If you didn’t, surprises galore!
