So what does $25 a member end up being a month for boxes?

My 2cents, i like random teams. Also if holding base saves on shipping thats cool. But maybe ship base every other month? As far as what boxes to break, were are looking at around $400 per month, i vote for crown or certified, but i'm open to whatever the group decides. So should we start sending payments in since we got 16 slots filled?

Here are my overall recommendations...

-Team draft snake style with a randomized draft order
-Base/inserts sent only upon request of member (I'm guessing most people will not want their base unless they get a hit as well)
-Certified, Crown Royale, Gridiron Gear, Threads of any years

more around 375 after fees, shipping, supplies etc. on an estimate

SHOULD WE START SENDING IN PAYMENTS?

What about this for our first break if we have $375...

1 box 2011 Certfied ($85)
1 box 2011 Crown Royale ($80)
1 box 2011 Gridiron Gear ($90)
1 box 2010 Certified ($105)

That would leave us with $15 left over for next month...

I like the snake draft personally but if the majority want random thats cool too. The boxes mentioned above are good choices, also maybe Chrome. Hits (inserts, parallels) for me.

i think thats too much 2011 imo. if its a club lets try to get more than just 2011 involved. i LOVE your certified picks always my favorites lol. maybe change out the royale for a 09 or 08 product.

i think we should random who picks products. for example if he was the one who got to pick products this month he would get to do that break. if someone else got it and they wanted lets say a bazillion other boxes to mix and match to get to 375 then they could.

your suggestion is a nice one though

What if we switch out a box of 09 SPA ($90) for the 11 Crown Royale? There's still $5 to spare at $375 a month

I still don't get what a snake draft is but whatever ends up happening I'm down. I also think crown should be switched with something else.

Snake draft goes like this...each member gets a spot 1-16 then the order flips and every member gets a spot 17-32. So if you got the #1 pick you would also have the #32 pick, if you got the #2 pick you would also have the #31 pick, #3 and #30, #4 and #29, #5 and #28, and so on. This makes it more fair so the person who gets the #1 pick (best of the best) does not also get the #16 pick (best of the worst)

Edit- So an example of a draft order would look as follows...

1)ckcardz
2)omahacolts
3)TheHeel
4)HBMC
5)dtrainman
6)Sidthekidc87
7)omahacolts
8)bucksman2415
9)CARDGUY123
10)wkevinn
11)garuda
12)fishtaco02
13)duchie
14)jrodlc08
15)pryorfan2
16)MITM
17)MITM
18)pryorfan2
19)jrodlc08
20)duchie
21)fishtaco02
22)garuda
23)wkevinn
24)CARDGUY123
25)bucksman2415
26)omahacolts
27)Sidthekidc87
28)dtrainman
29)HBMC
30)TheHeel
31)omahacolts
32)ckcardz

I see now. Makes sense but I'd prefer random teams alot better.

from what ive seen it looks alot of the members would prefer we did a snake draft. what if we switched off each month to make everyone satisfied

first month- snake draft
second month- random
thrid month- snake draft
fourth month- random
.......... etc

BTW the snake draft wouldnt be the order above the draft order would be randomized if you didnt already know.

I'm up for either. The draft wouldn't take that long with 16 members. We could start the day we order the boxes and we would have it done by the time they got to MITM

i think we should do it sooner than the day we order. that way we have time to trade/sell between members

Snake is fine for me, random really doesn't bother me either.

Sounds good. I'm still up for whatever. So the draft is only to see what person gets to choose their team 1st?

Yep. Each member will get to draft their teams instead of just being assigned them

correct. so you would probably want the raiders in a 2011 break. the snake draft would allow you a much greater chance at getting the raiders so you can pull a pryor im guessing.

I like both methods, so I say we do both. Maybe just a straight up alternation method as mentioned before.

So do we random spots 1-16, then based off that do a snake for sports 17-32? Also love the suggestions of having 4 boxes, doesn't matter if we do 2011 or other years.

As a side note, if we order boxes from BO and get a great pull. We can submit for best pull of the month and if we win can just send everyone packs from the box. Just a thought.
