There will be no draftable slots for the USA auto's, or any of the additional auto or insert slots. This will leave us with a decent amount of extra cards, some with decent value (Elite Series Auto's, Buidling Block Auto's, 15u USA Auto Patches, etc.) Anyone not receiving a hit (#'d card or auto) would have the remaning cards randomed between them. If there are additional cards after that we would random those amongst everyone.

This would bring the slot price up a buck probably, but it would guarantee absolutely everyone would receive something. As a host, I absolutely HATE people getting shutout or spending good money on a high pick and getting barely anything. It has happened to me before and it's a crappy feeling, but there is always a certain amount of gamble with this hobby.

For what its worth, I had 2 slots in Round 1 and got totally shut out and I was the 1st one to post that you should run it again. I looked at it like I went to my LCS and bought a couple of loose packs and got all base....yeah I have something to show for it, but not really. This is all one big gamble.
