Well folks, this is it! The final day of 2010 Topps-O-Cuffs, the Rip Off! If you have been following the battle you will know that JD and I are horribly behind due to an unfortunate Nick Swisher pull. Could have happened to anybody I guess. Now if we had pulled a Big Papi black border, well we would probably be doing a little jig at this point. But alas no. Either way, lets finish this thing strong!

Now that was a nice way to finish up! Unfortunately I don't think it is going to be enough, so for those of you rooting for camp JD, I think we may have come up a little bit short! You can thank the Nick Swisher card of death and the Cal Ripken pants for our demise.
What does this all mean? WELL, Joe is going to be getting himself a nice Yankee product from MLB store AND gets four "slaps" to use by the end of the year. These slaps entitle Joe to force me to write a blog entry about anything little thing his heart desires. I am a good sport though and it will be kinda fun, but I can only imagine the diabolical ideas that a Yankee fan can come up with...don't worry though, Sox fans will get their revenge on opening week at the Fens!
Thank you everybody for sticking with Joe and I during this extended battle. 36 packs is quite the haul and it was pretty tedious scouring all of the cards, scanning, and posting every couple of days, not to mention the fuzzy math! Perhaps a rematch will be in the cards (har de har har), but until that day, we thank you for your viewership!

  1. Very happy I didn't cheer for you. By the way, I got your card for TTM. I threw it in the trash. GO YANKS! I bet Joe picks out a nice new shirt to wear for opening day.
