Since it is 20 minutes past break start time, we have voted and are giving #31 the Cardinals, since they have 66 possible cards, compared to the jaguars 33, and are clearly the better pick.

breaking in 4 minutes

Looks like another host to block. He knew that everyone can't be there so why didn't he at least type out the hits last night. Now who knows when we will see what came out!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Wow....I have hosted several breaks, and had nothing but good positive comments from everyone. I apologize that it is thanksgiving weekend, and I am slightly busy with my wife and 3 kids. All videos are up (and have been since the break) at clongkong39 - Waxbusters! - blogTV as I said they would be on the main thread. If you want to see what came out, go watch the videos, or wait until this evening when I have time to put the scans up. Thanks for being understanding.

As I told everyone last night, I will have scans on the thread sometime today.

I personally think you have done a great job with the break, got things moving very well and teams were drafted fairly quickly, I wasnt able to make it to the break either but i know its thanksgiving today too and family is more important than choosing to sit here and list all the hits and post pics instead of spending the day with family.....I for one think you have done a great job and I give you thanks on this thanksgiving day.

I used the official checklist from paniniamerica.net to determinee what the redemptions cards were for, and the print run for each. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, cards will be in the mail ASAP

Thanks for the scans and I only said that because you busted the night before thanksgiving and I thought you would have done the scans last night knowing the rest of the weekend would be spent with family.
I've seen this happen time and time again with hosts on here. A lot of people do not have the time to watch the videos so we want at least a list of what was pulled if the scans are going to be later.
Thanks again at least I got 2 hits what's the Smith tag out of?

smith tag is numbered 10/10. Did you see you got 2 Lafell hits? Jumbo jsy and patch/auto, so 3 hits at least.

Sorry if there was any misunderstanding, as most who have been in breaks of mine before can tell you, I am an honest host and I try my best to make the breaks a good experience for everyone. I know this is the first break of mine you have been in, so you don't really have any reason to trust how I run things yet, hopefully it was a good experience for you

You did a great job. I can see where there might be an issue though. Towards the end of the break, you were talking about doing some drinking the rest of the night after the break was completed. To me, it seems like it would not have been to unreasonable to expect a list of the hits (at a minimum) before indulging yourself the rest of the night. Personally, I have no problems with this break as the videos were recorded and I had the oppurtunity to watch the break live. To avoid future issues, maybe just set aside 10 extra minutes at the end of your break to make a list of hits for the members who have money invested in the break. Or maybe even ask for a volunteer to give live HIT updates in the thread as they are pulled. Other than that....thanks for pulling me some nice cards and I will participate in your future breaks!

How sad that you put cards before Thanksgiving and spending time with family!!! Sounds like a priority problem!!!

How sad that you feel you can judge someone you have probably never met and proclaim what their priorities are in life! Army made a good-point and ClongKong took it well...I don't believe their is any animosity in this break and an understanding has been reached, lets just leave it at that!

I wasn't in this break, but some sick stuff came out. Limited football is way better than Limited basketball again this year.

Hosting a break is hard work and a thankless job. I've hosted one (Limited basketball), and I think that's enough for me. Much easier to be a participant!

ITS ALL GOOD! There is no animosity anywhere, I appreciate the constructive feedback, and in the future I will have scans posted by the morning following the break for everyone to see. Let's leave it at that, no reason for anyone to be upset. I have seen armyatc22 and vikingsordie around a lot, and know that you both have a great reputation, and I have personally dealt with ripkenfan72 on multiple occasions both here, on youtube, and beckett, and would testify that she is very trustworthy and an awesome person. No reason we can't all deal together in the future. I will always try to take feedback and use it to make my breaks as enjoyable as possible for everyone involved. That being said, no more on the topic please, it is all settled.

Anyways,

Got all the cards packaged up and will be going to the post office tomorrow. Poor b_nic4life was only person in break not to get a single card in the break : (.

Many of you will notice I sent a box from the break in your package. (For the people who got big hits, just in case you notice anything wrong with a card and need a UPC to send for a replacement) If this is the case, PM me and I will happily email you a copy of the purchase receipt as well. I got all your feedback in, so keep an eye out in the mail, and hope you all had a good thanksgiving!

Oh yeah, as you can see in the scans, many of the cards have chalk or something on them. I thought on the first patch it was field chalk, but noticed while sleeving them all that it is on several of the cards. They came that way, I guess the powder stops the cards from sticking together in the pack or something, I dunno. But it wipes off very easily from the surface of the card. Just wanted to make sure you are all aware that I wasn't chalking my hands for grip prior to ripping packs or anything, lol.

Yeah Ive heard several people who have busted limited this year say something about the "chalky" residue on the cards. Not exactly sure what that would be either....maybe you were eating powered donuts during the break!!
