I think you're missing my point. If the club doesn't do 2 high-ends (or more) during the early season, you can double up on Bowman cases in May and get a master case of TTT towards the end of the year. And both of those products are overwhelmingly fair to everyone.

If you guys want to break Topps Archives all year long that's fine. Just don't expect someone with the Royals/Rockies/Marlins to stick around and pay dues all year when you're busting Heritage and Archives and Museum Collection.

And I would think that the more people you get to pay monthly dues (for "newer" teams), the more likely it is that you can bust a master case of TTT at the end of the year.

Just stating my opinion, not trying to tick anyone off. You can be "old team" oriented and have a small club that can't pay for a master case of TTT, or you can be "old and new team" oriented and fair to everyone and have a larger club that can get a master case of TTT every year.

How many of those "1963" coins from Heritage are going to go to a Rockies or Marlins owner? None.
I think you are missing the big picture and becoming to focused on "old team/new team". If we do 2 high end breaks during the course of 12 months the total cost would be about $4000, we will take in probably greater than $12000 during the year meaning $8000 will be put towards prospect driven products etc. This is what I meant by it can't be 50/50. In my opinion doing only two high end cases is better for those other teams. I think we have done and will continue to do a good job of mixing the product up.

And the Marlins and Rockies are unclaimed for a reason, they aren't good in most products.
