Default MMBTVS FGB Baseball Edition Part 2

Call me crazy but doing the free group breaks is the only thing I miss about sports cards.

So I'm going to bust out of retirement and throw one down. I'll bust one case, I don't know what product yet, I'll figure that out, and I'm going to give away ten slots.

Here's the way it'll work. Ten people who are chosen in this thread will get their pc team free in the break. All other hits will be sent to jlzinck to be sold to raise money to be donated to The Jimmy Fund. I will be keeping nothing. Beyond the ten slots there is 1 free slot that I'd like to give out first and foremost. Houdini with the Tampa Bay Rays.

There are no rules to this. You can post whatever you want in this thread to get my attention, and I'll announce the slot holders as something catches my eye. This will end without notice.

Houdini - Tampa Bay Rays
Devi8or - Mariners
The700level - Orioles
Greenjo - Phillies
fungi2510 - Royals
youseekyoda421 - Twins
lambeauleap87 - Indians
TrueNE_09 - Redsox
pskell02 - Pirates
cwgross144 - Yankees
BigEd - Dodgers

It's my girlfriend's birthday and she is a huge Cardinals fan. She has watched group breaks videos with me but has never participated in one herself.

Life long Angels fan.. Since 1989.. My best childhood and teen memories are at the Big A. That was when you could buy the cheap nose bleed seat and move to field level at about the 3rd inning. I loved the Angels so much they were my first job.. Selling merchandise on the field level for 2 seasonsss

thanks for doing this and your charity donation.

I've never joined in on a group break, I just bust boxes at home while my wife and little girls look at me crazy when I scream "woo!!!!" when a big hit comes up. I bet you'll pull a Cespedes Superfractor Auto for me as beginners luck, and then I'll be hooked. Another addiction to add to the list.

Thanks for the awesome gesture, Oakland A's are my team.

Awesome gesture man. Saw you are going through a rough time with your stuff getting stolen and yet you still have the optimism to give back to others while trying to find the stuff that was stolen from you. Great to see your optimism and acts of kindness. Thanks again.

This is not an entry, just saying thanks. After I thought about it, I don't collect a lot of baseball so I'd rather someone else get spot who is a big baseball fan.


Happy Birthday!
