Gint-A-Cuffs Begins!

The box arrived yesterday morning, just on time! Very prompt delivery from DA Card World. I have already opened the box so the plan is to post 6 packs at a time and tally as we go! Just a heads up.. this might be the greatest single box I've ever opened. It surely rivals the Puig red auto and the Bryce Harper rookie auto that I pulled in Chrome in year's past. Hold onto your hats.. It's Ginter time!
