120 Years in the Making...

Not since the very first Gint-A-Cuffs tourney back in 1889, has there been so much interest in the event. Until 2006, with the release of Topps' first Allen & Ginter set, the tradition and splendor that is Gint-A-Cuffs was thought to be a forgotten relic from the past. The rebirth of the brand brought the sleeping giant that is Gint-A-Cuffs out of its slumber.

I am sure you are all well versed in the rich history of the Gint-A-Cuffs tournament. If you would like a refresher, feel free to head over to the headquarters.

I wanted to share a couple of noteworthy pieces of my Gint-A-Cuffs collection with you:

that was one hell of a fight in '53. i mean, marciano had to lose at some point, but i never thought i'd be the one to take him down.
