Default 2012 HRHC Monthly Group Break (club #2)

Alright guys, here it is. A shiny new thread for 2012's proceedings in the Home Run Hit Club. A huge thank you to Marvin for doing such a great job in 2011!

This is a $45/month buy-in. Ideally, you commit for a year. If you drop out for a month, you lose out on your team. I'm not as nice as Marvin, and I don't have $90 to spot you for 2 months.

I will be breaking every month unless we decide to combine or something like that. Our current monthly budget is $945 with the 17 members that hold 21 committed teams.
Here's the members list as of 5/19/12
Rangers82 - Rangers
hmmdecloth - Phillies
peafour - Cubs
houdini - Rays & Cardinals
Tyler - Yankees
oreo2004 - Twins
upsbroker06 - Reds
Anderdale - Braves
trubear - Brewers
Reid n Owen - Mets & Nationals
dimer10 - Red Sox
yanksbillsfan - Mariners & Marlins
dlab85 - Giants
skate81 - Royals & Dodgers
thekid1 - Tigers
steelpen2 - Pirates (March and beyond)
Riversoule - Angels (May and beyond)

The unclaimed teams as of 5/19/12 are:
Astros
Padres
White Sox
Indians
Athletics
Rockies
Blue Jays
Orioles
Diamondbacks

Backup list:
skate81 - Mets
upsbroker06 - Yankees (good luck!)
troybuilts - Red Sox
VThokie22 - Braves
Please see the payments chart at the bottom for payment deadlines (they are located next to the month). If you'd like to pay a few months in advance, go for it.

Auctions for unclaimed teams will be held monthly, usually 5 days before the payment deadline. The minimum bid is $10. It is your responsibility to review the checklist to make sure the team you're bidding on has cards in the set. If someone decides to pick up an unclaimed team in the middle of they year, they are more than welcome to do so. But remember, that team becomes yours through the end of the year.

Misc. info and rules

The Paypal address we will be using for this break is
Code:
Nope.
Do NOT send Paypal gift. Paypal knows that no one likes me enough to just up and give me money.

Quick link to subscribe to this thread (very important, especially if you aren't on here frequently) <------- do this

Here's a permanent link for the UStream feed: linuxabuser on USTREAM: Tyler's Group Breaks.

Multiple team cards will be randomed between the teams present on the card. If someone owns two teams present on a 3 way auto, then they get 2 entries in the random.

Cards will go to the team that the player(s) is depicted in on the front of the card. (If Rickey Henderson is in an A's uni and the card says that he's on the Padres, and on the back it has a stat line from his Yankees days, then the card still goes to the A's)

USA/WBC and others like that will be randomed between all teams. If you hold 4 teams, then you get 4 entries.

My default will be to ship your cards after every break unless you tell me otherwise. I can also ship the hits and hold the base until you request it. Hits will always be sent in sleeve/top-loader/team bags. Base cards will be sent double boxed. Most of you have dealt with me and know how I ship so I don't expect any issues on that

If some teams go without bids, then the cards are included for whoever wins the following month's bid for that team.

No whining.

Have fun!

You can relax for sure, but I'm throwing any Dodgers 'hits' straight in the toilet.

Hahaha I don't think he would like me very much if I put your name next to them.

As far as products go, look through Blowout's upcoming releases and see what looks good to you. There isn't really anything coming out besides Bowman Sterling, which I'm not a big fan of.

i'll give you the braves if you send me your case of 2011 draft you recently opened!

I like the idea of doubling up for January and not breaking anything and then busting a master case of tribute for February to start this biotch off right

I've had fun with you guys, but I'm also going to back out of my spot as well. My extra scratch is running thin. Thanks to Marvin for running the club in 2011 and good luck to you guys in 2012!

I'm still in for the phils, haven't looked at product calendar. I didn't see a checklist for sterling yet, but I wouldn't mind passing on the sticker autos. I also wouldn't mind skipping the month to break a higher end case in the future. I break a lot on my own, so I prefer higher end stuff that I wouldn't normally break on my own, but I'm down with whatever we decide as a group. If this comes through jumbled, I'm on my phone and just finished a horrible horrible 48 hr session of poker, so it might not make sense.

Remember that the Museum Collection is actually Marquee. Yeah, THAT marquee. They just changed the name because so many people hated it.

I am not necessarily opposed to Marquee II - just wanted you to know. Normally when there is a good new product (2010 Bowman Platinum) there is a bad second year version (2011 Bowman Platinum). Expect 2012 Gypsy Queen to follow this trend.

Sometimes the adverse will be true on a crappy first year product though because they want to change the impression of the brand. However, here they completely abandoned the brand altogether and created a new one. Not positive, but I expect it will be no better, no worse than 2011 Marquee.

This is year 2 of the group. He wasn't the host last year and that was the team he chose.

I'd rather break something in January. 90 is alot to put down for Tribute and potentially (probably) get hosed. Maybe one case of something else and a 4 box case of Tribute in February.
