Default 90's Baseball Multi Box Group Break

Before I get into any details, I just want to say a BIG thank you to Danny and Blowout in general for agreeing to procure this product for us and for making this break even a possibiliy on their site.

Now, the details:

Since this is a multi year break, and since the Rays and Diamonbacks did not come into the league until 1998, I am going to exclude those teams from the random and any hits will be randomed off - base for TB and AZ will be divied up amongst the other participants as even as I can do it.

That leaves us with 14 slots. Each slot will get TWO random teams. Random will be done by a mod.

*We will be breaking boxes of each of the following products:

(1) 1999 Upper Deck SPX Baseball
(1) 1999 Topps Tek Baseball
(1) 1999 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2
(1) 1999 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1
(1) 1999 Skybox Thunder Baseball
(1) 1999 Skybox Molten Metal Baseball
(1) 1999 Flair Showcase Baseball
(1) 1999 Bowmans Best Baseball
(1) 1998 UD SPX Finite Baseball
(1) 1998 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2
(1) 1998 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1
(1) 1998 Bowmans Best Baseball
(1) 1997 Topps Gallery Baseball
(1) 1997 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2
(1) 1997 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1
(1) 1997 Flair Showcase Baseball
(1) 1997 Bowmans Best Baseball
(1) 1997 Donruss Elite Baseball
(1) 1996 Upper Deck SPX Baseball
(1) 1996 Topps Laser Baseball Series 2
(1) 1996 Topps Laser Baseball Series 1
(1) 1996 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2
(1) 1996 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1
(1) 1996 Fleer Skybox Metal Baseball
(1) 1996 Bowmans Best Baseball


Should be a nice fun break, with some chances at hitting some really nice inserts.

*List is subject to change slightly, based on availabilty of product when we fill the break.

great! this is a tough break for me as I collect mostly Mike Piazza and Pedro Martinez but both switched teams in the late 90s and are Expos/Red Sox and Dodgers/Marlins/Mets for the years above...decisions, decisions...

agreed...I want in badly but can't quite justify paying $100ish for Royals/Pirates that I surely would draw.

Only fair way to do it - other than to random the 14 names and then do a team draft.

Otherwise everyone wants the same 4-5 teams.

Id love to do a player draft, problem is there's WAY too many players from '96-99, most of which no one would care about.

I'm very interested in this. I actually like the random idea and the assortment of product. You're shipping all the base, right?

You can always trade

I wish there was a better way than random, but other than team auction, not sure what other fair way to go about it.

Thanks for joining.

Some people have asked me about doing this as a team draft - ie, random the list of participants, but they you get to pick your team based on your random spot

OR

Doing this as a team auction ... I am open to either, if you guys like the idea better. I know a few of you only collect certain teams/players.

That being said, if we did team auction, we would have to of course meet the minimum $$$ amount to run the break.

Thoughts?

I mean it seems if everybody has a certain player/ team they collect like you said. I only collect Griffey which obv is one of the higher selling out of the 90s. Thes decisions are too tough for me lol. I'm in regardless but if someone pulls a gold embossed griffey I will cry

How would you so a team auction? Ebay?

eBay? No. Basically it would be like the player auctions run here already on BO, but by the team. Honestly, I do not think that will work in this situation. While the Mariners, White Sox, Red Sox, Braves, Orioles, etc would get bid up and up, who is bidding enough on the left over teams to make up the total we would need to buy all the product? It probably would never reach the threshold.

Team draft would be better perhaps, because then if you are random spot 1, you get 1st choice, whereas a true random of slots and teams, random spot 1 may match you up with the Twins, which you obviously would not select first overall.

Only way we would ever be able to get the teams we actually wanted would be to find 14 people to agree that they want 14 different teams, and the random the remaining 14 teams - but honestly, I do not see that as realistic either. Guaranteed there would be more than a few wanting SEA and the Yankees, etc ...

Are you opposed to a hit/team draft hybrid. Round 1, 14 slot hit draft. Round 2, random 28 teams among 14 owners.

Opposed? No. Whatever the consensus is, I'm OK with. The more I think about it, the more I like the team draft idea, but I'm game for however the majority want to do it.
