Box 1 Box 2
Box 3 Box 4
Box 5 Box 6
Box 7 Box 8
Box 9 Box 10
Box 11 Box 12

Then I'd have a printed list of the slot holders right next to you so you account for exactly which hit came first and write it down on the sheet right away (might as well announce it on video as well). This way everyone watching can play along at home and follow right along with you. A little more tedious than the traditional break where the hits just go into a pile for randoming, but based on how we have it set up, just the way it needs to be.

I would agree with this...that way each half of the slot list has a chance at an "A" list auto...rather than mixing up all 12 boxes and possibly having both case hits in the first 2 boxes...

also, keeping the 6 box mini-cases seperate makes it easier for the base/insert slot holders

Case prices have gone up $300-400 since we ordered our first case, so the $50 per slot ($7 more than the initial $43) price is adjusted to reflect this + I'd like to get a little extra for the 5 months I've sat on these spots
boxes selling for $125-$150

Lmk if anyone wants 2 hits from a sealed case (just like buying a box but w/ a guaranteed shot at MJ/lebron for $100)

Case #1 is fully paid.

As for Case #2, I was told by Blowoutcards that they are completely sold-out of their pre-sell cases of this product so I will have order this case once the product releases. I will keep in touch with Blowoutcards and order this case immediately once it's available.


I will let you know immediately when the regular cases become available to Blowoutcards.
Let me get this straight, for the people that have been locked into the 2nd case break for the past FIVE MONTHS, I sure hope BLOWOUT steps up and honors the price that was posted on their site when we originally were locked in and the 2nd case was approved by BLOWOUT. If we have to pay the inflated price that the case is at now since it's release after we've been locked down for five months, I will never again order another box from them. A lot of people have their money tied up in this 2nd case that we still don't even know if it will happen. Please look into this.

The best price that Blowoutcards can do on Case #2 is $1,650, which is $560 above the original price. I have sent PM's to all spot holders in Case #2 and I am requesting a response by today Friday 5/6/11.

To stay in Case #2, I will need an additional $20 for each spot.

I apologize for this inconvenience but this case was not available for pre-sale since Blowoutcards sold out of the pre-sell product back in March 2011.

I agree with what Rink and I'm so glad that we got locked in a price for case 1.

I believe this break started before blowout was approving breaks and doling out invoice numbers. Blowout really never approved the break or entered into any type of verbal contract...


Hester did all he could and was really just a victim of unfortunate circumstances outside of his control.

No one is at fault here really, UD took forever to release this damn product and pulled back their usual allocation to online retailers otherwise I'm sure Blowout would have been able to sell us one back in March. If you feel like blaming anyone, blame them.

If anyone in case 2 wants to buy 2 HIT slots in case 1, let me know.

BO is going to cite to this under their rules and regulations for group breaks;
- Be advised that prices do change daily. Once you gauge the interest, purchase your case first before you intend on doing the group break. Otherwise you incur the risk of price changes or sell outs on that product.

Obviously, hester could not do this on a product that has been delayed as badly as it has been and BO selling out of pre-sell cases at the time he requested the second case. If you push this, BO changes their rules to read "all cases must be purchased before host can collect payments".....basically you can kiss hosts goodbye as nobody will ante up the deposit with breaks being as tricky as they are. So choose carefully.

It is a set of very unfortunate circumstances with the delay being as bad as it has been and the price jump, I'm sure hester would have loved to get the second case at the same price as the first case. They told him they were sold out of pre-sells unfortunately.

I got enough responses to go with refunds for all Case #2 participants. All refunds have been made. Please confirm on the thread when you receive your refunds

Thank you for joining the break and for being so patient with all these product delays.

I will opening the packs in each box by starting on the bottom left stack and move clockwise through the box. I will do this same format for every box that I open to keep it uniform.

I will not be mixing up the packs or boxes. I will go in the order that Rinkwraith stated above. Box 1 Left, Box 2 Right, Box 3 Left, Box 4 Right and so on.

Any Jordan Classics jersey cards will be pulled out and randoming to everyone in the case. These will not count as actual hits. Only hits that will count are autos, auto letterman and floor cards.

If for some reason we get additional floor cards or autos, those will be randomed to everyone in the case as well.
