Gint-A-Cuffs V: BoxTopper and Packs 1-4

I know this is the moment everyone who's ever read this site has waited for......the 5th edition of Gint-A-Cuffs here on this blog.  When I was a young lad, I once dreamed of a world where Yankees were hated properly and devalued, where red ink and blood were worth more than the written word, and when destruction and tearing was the desired outcome of any endeavor.  Gint-A-Cuffs is a culmination of those wishes.

This year, the Ginter universe is slightly changed.  There are more retired players in the set since its first incarnation in '06. And there are more standard size inserts, and no more sketches to to look for.

Onto the ripping....

First, I ripped into the box itself.....I did not have a card inside. (0 points)

Next, up is the boxtopper.
