Default Who loves Group breaks?

Im so excited about this up coming break that I have to post a poll.

For those who have not done a group break it is very exciting and addicting so I would love to hear group break stories.

Here is the current group break im in. What a sick break.

Personally, I am a big fan of the cheap, fun breaks in the group break section.

We are fans too. You are the master sir. This man runs top notch breaks, and really is the reason I got so damn addicted to these. They are fun and with the video and funny chat it gets interesting.

Big thanks to Houdini for providing the breaks.

Can someone explain the "player draft" and how it works? I'd really appreciate it, thanks.

Everyone gets a slot. You have a list of every player in the product. Slot holder 1 gets first pick of any player from the list then gets every card of that player. Then you continue through the slots until everyone has picked a player. Our Bowman player draft took around 2 weeks to complete. You can look back at it to see how it shook out.

I like the breaks of products that are too expensive for me to justify buying a box of myself like Exquisite or NT. I also like the breaks where it's just a shot in the dark at basically winning the lotto like the Bowman team break I was in where a Red Harper auto was pulled.

Goldy got it mostly right. there is a slot for autos only (ex: chris sale auto, jameson taillon auto) and you would only get autos of that player if you hit those. There are also slots for the base/refractors of players.

In the case of the break above there is a slot both for prospects, and slots for vets only. So basically if you pick say BDPP 92 chris sale ( im bias I know) you would get his base cards and refractors. If you chose a vet like buster Posey you wold get all Posey.

To top it off in the break above slots cost 5 times less than a box, and if you hit even minor stuff you could end up ahead. Anderdale just ended up hitting a Bryce Harper red auto /5 from 2011 Bowman and cashed in so plenty of big stuff to be had.



Another advantage is you have tons of boxes and cases which you would never otherwise usually be able to afford to be able to hit a big one.

When's the last time you broke 3 cases of draft and a case of sterling all at once? Big breaks for dirt cheap. Tons of fun drafting, trading, and the chat box while the video is running is hilarious.

Also for the draft you must submit a full list of the players in the order you would like to pick them in. After the random happens and you know which spot you are going to get you can try trading up or down, and basically once they get to you if you are not there they use your list, and if you are there you pick a player from the ones that are available either auto of base/refractors.

Im about to try out what you mean at some point. I think it would be fun. I think I will start off with team randon first though. Don't want to get into a player draft just yet.

Best way to get into an expensive case !! And if you get lucky and pull a great card,even better.You save some money but still fill your need !!

CFB II - $1,132.00 (12 box case '10 BP and 2 packs '11 Tribute)
CFB III - $1,850.00 (case '10 BC, '10 TC, '10 BP and 2 mystery jerseys/3 mystery helmets)
CFB IV - $800.00 deposit (of $2940.00 total) 4 cases '11 Finest PRE ORDER
CFB V - $1,700.00 (case '11 S2, '10 TC, '10 BP and 4 mystery helmets)
CFB VI - in process $5,390.00 (3 cases '10 BDPP, 1 case '10 Sterling, random boxes from BO)

Total for all 6 CFBs - $13,587.00 (since May 6th this year)
