Gint-a-Cuffs: Box Topper, Packs 1 and 2: In Which There is Hope for the Future

I've broken this box over a month ago, but I am the slowest scanner alive. Also, I am just back from vacation and have been completely cut off from phone and internet for the past 10+ days, so there's nothing to really reflect upon. I therefore welcome you to the Gint-a-Cuffs box. Let's see if I can even approach the lofty heights set by previous participants.

Box Topper

Come on, something memorable...
No, it's not memorable.

CB 8: Signing of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (starring Truman and Pearson): +8

On to the unknown:

Pack 1

300: David Ortiz
192: Ryan Zimmerman
72: Carlos Lee
93: David DeJesus
41: Victor Martinez
World's Biggest Hoaxes, Hoodwinds, and Bamboozles Mini: HHB10 D.B. Cooper (more like a crime) +5

Pack 2
154: Corey Hart (no sunglasses)
281: Jake Peavy
83:Ludwig Van Beethoven (sans German national team cap)

National Pride: NP20: Akinori Iwamura (Japan)


Pack Total: 7

Total After 2 Packs and a Box Topper: 20 points

More goodness to come.

You got a short-print I'm still looking for. That counts for something.

If you are looking to trade, I'd be interested in that Hoax card (#10). It's one of the few that I'm still missing from that insert set.

I'd be happy to trade. I'm sorting through my A&G cards this week. I'll come up with a wantlist by then if you want to do a more comprehensive trade.

I would be happy to accept any Phillies mini for it.
