Also, I like the idea of having the checklist posted (with teams!) in the thread. This should help move along the process.
No offense to anyone, but I neither have the time or patience to do that. By all means if someone else feels like doing it, have at it.

We usually know what product we are busting days and days before we start to draft. Again, I am of the opinion that it shouldn't really be all that hard to come up with your list before we ever get to the draft.

Sorry, I didn' mean that YOU should do it. We have 30 members, I am sure someone can knock it out. If the teams part isn't going to happen, I will gladly post the standard checklist in the thread.

Well, I work 9-9 on Tuesdays leaving the house at 8:30 and getting home around 9:30 without internet access most of the time.

This particular day, I was actually off, running errands all stinkin' day (not a pleasant day). I checked the computer at my first possible time, the 3 minutes between getting home and taking the wife to dinner and it was my turn. Perfect. I made my pick from a list of availables which it turns out wasn't accurate. I guess my point is, normally, I would not have had the opportunity to even look yet make a pick on a Tuesday. Now I had no issue with the auto-pick when I wasn't around, but seriously, not everyone is around the computer all the time. It's again why I think randomizing teams and picks is best, but no biggie on this end. I just don't want to catch crap because I have a life and can't be in front of my computer 24/7 and I certainly didn't have time to read 10 pages to see what teams were available. The list I saw had the Cardinals available so I picked them. Other than that, dude, you are amazing the way you break then ship the next day. That's just crazy! (in a good way)

I'm happy to help out as well. That auto by team breakdown I did a few pages back in the thread was pretty easy to develop.

Could we create a new thread for the March break? Might make finding the randoms, draft order, etc easier.

I wasn't complaining about any ONE person and I understand people are busy. BUT if you know you can't get to a computer bc of work/plans/etc - send a list. We knew we were breaking BC. Coming up with a ranked list is a fairly quick thing.

I updated the OP before the draft with the draft order and what teams were picked as we went along. I could start a new thread but I honestly didn't think it could get any easier than having the info in post #1. Again, it's just teams - everyone knows all 30 MLB teams.

Thats reasonable. I work from 3pm to 1am monday through saturday, so it is hard to get to for me. I'll be sure to send a list to help move things along. Thanks again for hosting.

Shipping was $49.47 so we roll over $57.64 for March.

Our March options are:

1 - BANK the $$$ and no break
2 - 2010 Bowman Chrome - roughly $540
3 - 2011 Bowman Draft - roughly $645
4 - 2011 Bowman Chrome - roughly $680
5 - ??? ANY OTHER IDEAS ???

ONE SLIGHT MARCH PROBLEM/ISSUE
I will be out of the country March 14-24 ... SO, March break either has to be done by March 8 so I can ship March 9 [I'll be too busy getting #@#@#@#@ together the weekend/beginning of next week to break] OR sometime during the last week of March.

Anyhow, lets get some ideas for what we want to do in March

Well Bowman Jumbo cases are $855 right now, so we would need to bank in either March or April to afford one.

I would say that with you being gone for a portion of the month in March, that would be a good time to bank.
