Are any boxes of the list of 100 guaranteed boxes worth the $199 or more alone... just trying to calculate if I can at least come close to breaking even without hitting a prize....

Just hit a Kaepernick Inception Letter Auto 1/1 out of the boxes I split with someone from Super Bowl promo #9, so obviously I'm looking to buy more and probably run a group break for this one!

Just wish there was national treasures in there maybe for promo #2 if it gets to that!

i think someopne already said the average is about 130....

don't really think there is a feasible way to run a group break with this when you don't even know what box or sport you'd be getting

Ok this is my first a) promotion b) "pool" with the grid. So I get that we all get a random box, I get that we all get a spot on the grid and I get that the score at the end of the quarter will correspond with a grid spot. But let's say combined assists, if that #is 27, is it the same thing, you just look for East 2 West 7 on the grid? And if it turned out that rebounds was also 27, the same person would win twice?

highly possible... you get one team per slot you purchase in the group break... you buy 4 slots, you get 4 teams.... (say $135 for the first, $130 each for everyone after that)...

It would be a multi-sport break... probably 32 slots.... Say the boxes we get are football and baseball... Then we would have 62 teams to draft from (whoever gets 1st and 2nd pick overall would only get 1 team, and rightfully so)... If we get boxes from 3 sports, then there would be 92 teams to draft from (And 4 people would get 2 teams, everyone else would get 3)...

It would be up to each individual to incorporate strategy, common knowledge and preference of sports to determine if they draft all teams from one sport, or spread it out, or neglect one sport and not two others, etc....

good luck with that...I think it may be hard enough for people when they aren't even sure what product they are getting, but if it works, good luck and who knows, depending on the price, i may even get one

same here, i think this can't be any worse than gambling on a box. if i get a crappy box i lose, but if i get a good box i can possibly win and if i get a good box plus one of those "packages" it could be great!

Due to a good night at the Casino, I guess I'll gamble a little more.

Picked up a few spots, hopefully this will be better than the New Years promo where I got 3 spots and received 3 $50-80 boxes which yielded about $60 worth of cards TOTAL at a much higher cost haha ... I know it's a gamble, so hopefully this one goes a BIT better for me
