Gint-a-Cuffs Packs 19 and 20: In Which Freshness is Locked In

Card companies must be fatigued fromc onstantly designing cards because a lot of designs are rehashed. Though a few tweaks from previous years has made this A&G offering a breath of fresh air compared to the dullness of 2008 (seriously, the black typeface from last year bothers me). The addition of action poses with a washed out stadium background to some cards has lent
freshness to this run of 4 years of this set. The Cole Hamels and Mariano Rivera cards are two of my favorite from this year's offering. In an unrelated note, was William Tell a real person, and how did he get a whole overture named after him that sounds like horses galloping when he's known for his archery skills....the mysteries of life.
