put me down for a team too i'm new to blowout cards
I'll try a team if you still have some left, anybody wanna play fantasy football by the way
QUOTE=rudyjustinfarrell;93434]Trying to gauge interest in a Blowout Group Case Break for 2008 Topps Finest FB that is currently due out September 15, 2008. I will NOT be buying a slot (ONLY BUSTING) so every card pulled will go to a BLOWOUT member.
This will be a TEAM BREAK, which means that a person will be randomly (via random.org) assigned an NFL TEAM (Bears, Lions, etc...) and will get every single card for that TEAM. The kickers are.... The box toppers (16 total in a case) will be randomized at the end AND dual autograph cards will be assigned alphabetically. What does that mean? Well.. the randomized box toppers at the end allows those people w/ weaker teams to possibly pull a nice Tom Brady or Adrian Peterson box topper. There are 32 NFL Teams, and there SHOULD be 16 box toppers so at least half the participants will get 1 box topper to go along w/ their assigned NFL team. Any dual autos will be assigned alphabetically... for example: a dual autograph of Brian Brohm(Packers)/Felix Jones(Cowboys). Since Brohm would come before Jones in alphabetical order, the person holding the Packers for their TEAM would win the dual autograph. If 2 people have the same last name, the tie breaker would be the first letter of their first name (again A defeats Z and A would get the card). Oh... almost forgot. Once everyone has paid the TEAM list will be generated and there can and probably will be TEAM TRADING. I will need confirmation from both parties to note any trades but it's pretty easy to do and will be posted on the TEAM list BEFORE THE DAY OF THE BREAK.
Near the bottom is the product info copied from the BLOWOUT website. Additionally I added a TOPPS link to show an example of an extra added NFL PATCH AUTO RC that might just pop it's head up in our break?!?!?!
I will e-mail Chris for a group break price but for right now I'm looking at 32 TEAMS=32 SLOTS at $35 each (paid via Paypal as it gets closer to actual ship date). This might be a bit cheaper if we catch Chris or Pat in a good mood. I would like to get a lot of involvement (that means YOU newbies) so I'm limiting each person to 1 slot MAXIMUM. The price includes S&H + supplies. Nicer cards will be in top-loaders and team bags, base & parallels probably in a 20+ plastic holder and all cards will be shipped out via US 1st Class mail w/ DC in bubble mailers. If a huge HIT is pulled we'll talk about optional Insurance.
Click on my Ebay link to double check my feedback rating. Look at my Itrader rating for activity on this board and also check out my 2007 Bowman Chrome FB Grp Break to see what I've pulled for other members. I do NOT have a camera so I CANNOT video tape or upload anything to YOUTUBE.
Remember.. this is a few weeks away but football season is coming up and this year's rookie crop has some big big potential! Thanks and good luck.

Please read the original post. Only 1 slot per member UNTIL September 1st. I will put your name on the list for 1 slot but I need you to get back to me acknowledging that you read the rules of this particular group break and will abide by the terms. Not trying to be a hard ass but everyone that participates in ANY group break needs to understand the TERMS of the group break so there are less headaches on the back end. Trust me that this is in your best interest. Thanks.
For everyone else, slot list updated thru GRWLRGZZLR & JustAnotherMember. 3 slots left !!!

Break Is Full...
Allrighty folks, the break is filled and all the names are updated on the original post. I'm sure Pat & Chris were busy all week w/ the Nationals going on so hopefully I'll get an e-mail back soon about the final purchase price. I'll keep my ears open for any breaking news on the product and will post my Paypal account in the near future. If you do not have a Paypal account and need to send a check just let me know via PM and I'll shoot you my mailing address. Thanks.

Original post updated w/ slot price
Got the e-mail from BLOWOUT on Sunday and locked in the case price today (Mon). They kicked us a small discount (Thanks Chris) but I forgot to factor in Paypal fees in my original math so instead of the original $35 a slot, it's now $36 a slot. Hopefully this does not throw a wrench in the monkeyworks. If it does just let me know.
Paypal or other payments now being accepted. My Paypal ID is email@example.com. Please mark payment as "Goods" and have somewhere in the notes your BLOWOUT ID and that the payment is for the BO 08 FINEST FB BRK. No need to rush your payment but please, everyone be paid by 5 SEPT or your slots will be put up for grabs that FRI.
P.S. Gabe... I did not see any odds posted for the NFL shields. I can't even find a master checklist for the product but I'll keep looking.
