I'm working on something with blowout that would potentially allow us to do a 90's group break.

Would have to be a team break since hit drafts won't work and player drafts won't really either. As long as we do '93 or later we've got 30 teams.

I know at least a few people, myself included, would buy multiple slots

I'd be in. But I'd only be in if I could get Rangers. I would want them at least and could possible do a couple more slots. I mean, how much are we talking per team $3-$5? Not much because most 90s boxes can be had under $75.

would you randomize teams to indivduals or would we be drafting teams?

It wouldn't be A box - it'd be a larger number of boxes

Could do it either way. Or team auction which would allow you to go after the team(s) you want.

We may only wind up with 10-15 people interested so it's possible we may just be able to pick the teams we want. I guess it depends on interest.

I would be in for this - random or preferred team (yankees for me).

What we could do if we only have say 15 slots would be 1 team of your choice and 1 random team.

Also - if anyone has ideas on which boxes to break - pm me. I've got to send a list to the powers that be to see if we can swing this.

Lol you're right. Maybe we can alternate on breaks or something. I primarily only collect Jeter - as do you.

Here is an example of what we could break:



1999 Upper Deck SPX Baseball Box
1999 Topps Tek Baseball Box
1999 Topps Gold Label Baseball Hobby Wax Box
1999 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2 Box
1999 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1 Box
1999 Skybox Thunder Baseball Box
1999 Skybox Molten Metal Baseball Box
1999 Bowmans Best Baseball Box
1998 Topps Stars Baseball Wax Box
1998 Topps Gallery Baseball Box
1998 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2 Box
1998 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1 Box
1998 Bowmans Best Baseball Box
1997 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2 Box
1997 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1 Box
1997 Pinnacle Totally Certified Baseball Wax Box
1997 Pinnacle Certified Baseball Wax Box
1997 Flair Showcase Baseball Wax Box
1996 Upper Deck SPX Baseball Box
1997 Bowmans Best Baseball Box
1997 Donruss Elite Baseball Wax Box
1996 Topps Laser Baseball Series 1 Box
1996 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1 Foil Box
1996 Fleer Skybox Metal Baseball Box
1996 Bowmans Best Baseball Box

Breaking [1] box of each listed above would be most likely $60 or less per slot - there are other options, I just picked 25 different boxes.

If we wanted we could also add 1993 Finest, though the prices are crazy - like $250-300 a box.

1999 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2 Box
1999 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1 Box
1999 Skybox Thunder Baseball Box
1999 Skybox Molten Metal Baseball Box
1998 Topps Stars Baseball Wax Box
*1997 Topps Finest Baseball Series 2 Box
*1997 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1 Box
*1997 Pinnacle Totally Certified Baseball Wax Box
1997 Pinnacle Certified Baseball Wax Box
1997 Flair Showcase Baseball Wax Box
1997 Donruss Elite Baseball Wax Box
1996 Topps Finest Baseball Series 1 Foil Box

(*open to more than one box)

I saw a box of '99 SP Signature (very reasonable price in a group break situation) on a certain site. I don't suppose it's still there?

I do not remember seeing SP Signature but it could be there - remember also, there is no break on here unless the product comes from BO. I am working with them now, but nothing will happen until after the Black Friday rush is done and over with so sometime next week best case.

I'm a little late to the group break thing but I would be in if I could get the Mariners. Sure someone claimed that already. Or if it's random.
