Gint-A-Cuffs III: Round 7 (Packs 19-24) The Last Gasp

Total Score From 18 Packs so far:  144 points
Current Leading Score: 232
Points per Pack needed to take lead: 14.66

I decided I am going to open all of the remaining packs in this post.  I am pretty much out of the running for the lead in points unless I pull a rare book card or cut auto for my last hit card.  Let's see if this box finishes strong and reaches at least 200 total points.

So that closes out my 2011 Gint-A-Guffs.  That was really fun as it really builds the suspense of opening each pack.  I wish something like this was done with more products.

Can't wait until Gint-A-Cuffs IV next year.
