So I don't mind a couple cases through the year that are oriented towards older teams, it's not fair to them to bust cases that have nothing but Rockies, Marlins, Nationals prospect autos.

But there needs to be a balance. I raked on the Finest case (Royals), got jack squadouche on the 2012 case, and expect to get jack squadouche on the Heritage case. But don't expect someone to keep paying monthly when you only bust stuff 25% of the time that benefits them. It needs to be close to 50%.

My $.02. Most Bowman products are fair to everyone. Tribute/Museum and Heritage, not so much. And I can go back through the votes and comments and tell you exactly who has the "older" teams. Just keep it balanced.
It can't be 50/50, just due to the shear cost of the high end cases. We will probably be able to do 2 high end cases over the course of the year. The rest of the time it will be $600-1000 cases. Just the limitations of the club.
