I figured I had a good chance of at least 1 Skole but this is the reason I took Machado base and Grandal base at 20 and 27 instead of some of the lesser autos.

LOL! I traded slots and paid $50 for slot #4 to draft Chris Sale Auto and it got me nothing.

So I think you should either do a multi case of 2010 Bowman Sterling player draft break or an 8 case of draft next.

$50 for slot 4?

I made an offer that was quite a bit higher for that slot... guess some people just don't like money

I read it as 'traded' (exchanged) slots... if you gave up anything <25 or 30 in addition to the $50, it was probably better than my offer.

Zero of any auto in four cases stinks, though.

No doubt. I gave up 3 slots. The highest being 29 and two others inside the first 100 plus $50 paypal and got nada.

But that is the risk we take. I have nothing to complain about. I spent quite a bit on this break, but overall I think I was a winner.

I don't think i've ever seen you NOT emerge a winner in any break, group or otherwise.

I was disappointed by the number of autos we received in our cases, along with the fact that some of the bigger names weren't mentioned whatsoever.

But I guess I can't really complain. I'm glad I stuck with AFLAC 4 at that spot instead of the alternative i had in mind.

wow what a waste of me being in this break. $115 spent $55 back from pick sales and not a damn card to show for it. AWESOME! This should help off set some of the money Patrick thought he might lose on this break.

Hope your cases result in some Harper love to make up for the lack of AFLAC in this break for you

You took the AFLAC 4 slot and I was next to pick. I would have taken it there, so you did well.

I again drafted the AFLAC 1 slot and didn't get one. I am sure Topps will hook me up with the worst replacement on the CL.

I got thrashed for my 2 base slots that I paid out of pocket for, but despite the extra funds paid, my 2 Machado autos pay for it all and more Thank you Pat for hosting as it was for the most part, a great break since it at least ended with a bang. I will be patiently waiting for your next group break as I think you got me hooked.

I haven't ever seen stated odds on Aflac autos that I can recall. I think it has always been an unwritten 1 per case.

yeah, if there are 21 aflacs in the set, and the highest numbers are to 230, that would equal about 4830 cards. Some of the Aflacs were also SP, so that number is a lot lower. There was talk about them making around 5000 cases. Even then, it would not equal 1 per case on average.

THere is no mention of the AFLACs on the sell sheet. I don't think you will get anything as a replacement, wouldn't hurt to give them a call though.

maybe you can help me bro
"Well, I stopped by walmart today and bought three of the $5 value packs that have 9 cards+3 bowman chrome cards in them. I just started collecting a week ago so can someone ID the cards for me...

First, I got a Shane Peterson auto, but it is not numbered and the card ID is BPA-SP, I can't find that code anywhere. What kind of kird is this?

I got a Dom Brown BDP70 and it is gold around the edges and is very thick compared to the other cards. I also got a Manny Machado gold edge same BDPP80 and it's also thick and a Matt Olson BDPP104 one. Why are these thicker?

Moving on...I got a Mitch Moreland BDP91 and a BDPP9 Josh Rutledge, both say refractor...on the rueledge it has purple edges and turns silver as it moves in and on the mitch moreland it has purple edges, then a green line and then black before his card.

Next I got a bunch of cards starting with code BDPP that all have 1st bowman or 1st bowman chrome on them, some of these even have those fake silver signatures on them. Notables in this section include 2 Grandals, and a Taillon.

Last, I got a bunch of black cards with green lines that say ethier bowman or bowman chrome, got an Ike Davis, which I wanted in here.

I spent $15 on the above, can anyone tell me what type each is, like the refractor types, and why i cant find the auto code...and whether my haul was good.
Thanks! "
