Ten packs, five cards each. As mentioned previously, these were contest winnings from Panini!
Let's get into this, shall we? How about Allen & Ginter Gint-a-Cuffs scoring style (completely arbitrary scoring, of course), hmm? One of these days I'll be able to buy a box of Ginter and participate in the real contest.
A strong start, but some weak pulls at the end.
That's a better pack.
We took a hit on that pack..
The RelicsAs before, the relic cards won't fit through my scanner so I had to photograph them. So what were my two hits?
The ScoreWell, I didn't score points on the first box, but I'm sure it would have had, at best, half of the points of this box! And with a score of 220.66 I'd win Gint-A-Cuffs. But I wasn't playing that game. I was playing my own game.
The ThoughtsI will repeat what I said before - opening Americana is lots of fun. But like pretty much every box out there today, it's not worth buying because any hit singles I want will be much cheaper just hunting for on the secondary market. If I were a case buster, and could put together sets and have good shots at the big money hits to pay for the case, that'd be another thing.
I do want to say thank you to Panini. I like a lot of what they do - sometimes more so than Topps. And like I said in my last post, the inserts here are great.
