Oh - tough start. Like myself, Shane is building a buyback frankenset, and he sent some dupes to help me out. John, on the other hand, has been cleaning out a ton of cards he bought from a collector. I have very few of the code cards from the 2008 World's Greatest Victories set, so I jumped on what he had. Growing up, I was a nutjob about space, so I will have to give this round to John.
More A&G goodness versus a fauxback uniform the Rangers wore. It's a decent uniform, for never existing. And a few companies put it on cardboard. However, the A&G takes this round as well. Cards that show real throwbacks overtake fake throwbacks. John is up 2-0.
Our 3rd A&G insert card from John talks of the story of a smaller man cutting down a larger giant. Shane counters with two miscuts. Two cuts are better then one. Shane trailing 2-1.
Remember Deep Blue? It played chess against Kasparov and beat him in a rematch played in regular chess time rules? Well, Deep Blue is going against a couple other colorful cards with blue, along with red, green purple and a bunch others. And that would win out, except I have both the Abreu and the Beckham. John up 3-1.
Bunt vs. buyback. Giants vs. Tigers. Pitcher faking it in the batting cage vs. pitcher faking it in the outfield. Helmet vs. sideburns. Sideburns win. Shane down one 3-2.
Shane is on top and John is on the bottom. All total, Shane sent me 5 buybacks for my frankenset. All were needed and I now have about 116 cards in the set. John sent me 3 bunting cards with the Allen and Ginter insert set. I needed the Estes in the last image, but I only needed the Orsulak here. 3 needs beats one, so the round to Shane.
And let's total up the score. Well how about that - another tie. What are the odds? Well, you know my recommendation: send more cards and we'll try and get a winner the next time. Until then, have some parting gifts....
