Default 2010/11 Ultimate Basketball (team break)

2010/11 Upper Deck Ultimate
Configuration: 15 boxes per case. 1 pack per box. 4 cards per pack.


CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS: (All content is based on an average across the entire print run)
- One (1) Autograph in every box!
- 1997 Legends makes its Basketball debut!
- Collect superstar autographs like Michael Jordan and LeBron James in the iconic 1997 Legends design!
- First chance to collect autographs from the 2010 Rookie Class!
- Collect Personal Touch Autographs featuring unique personal inscriptions from Rookies, Veterans, and Legends!
- Look for the All Time Draft signature set highlighting a "what if" list of the greatest players of all time if they were drafted in the same year!
- Draft results compiled by fan voting via the Upper Deck Facebook page!




*Edit: This is going to be done as a player draft. There are 94 individual players featured (excluding a few who are only on multiple person cards) Each slot recieves 2 draft picks, for 47 slots total. When payments are received the list will be randomized live on blogtv using random.org. The resulting list will be the draft order. Each person will receive all cards with their player. Cards featuring multiple players will be randomed amongst the featured players, and cards containing players not in the draft will be randomed amongst everyone, as long as there is no represented player on that card.

Case price = 870

870/47= 18.51
+ 4 shipping/supplies = 22.51
*1.029+.3= 23.46

$23.50 first slot
$21 additional slots

I'm not sure every team is represented. Have you checked the checklist?

This sounds interesting but a bit confusing. If each person grabs 2 teams wouldn't you divide the total case cost by 15 rather than 30? The price would be double right?

Sounds possible. I haven't opened any of this product yet but I imagine the hits would correspond to the team that player played for in the NBA since no player is featured in their NBA uniform. The break definitely sounds interesting at the quoted price but I'm not sure about double the price.

I updated the main post, as case price has changed. Also, so that there is no confusion with a team draft since only colleges are represented, and there are many retired players, I have changed the format to a player draft. The Draft pool list is from the checklist found on blowoutcards.com. There are a few people in this product that are not listed in the draft pool, as they are only on cards with other people, or only have 1 card possible. In the even these are pulled, they will be randomed as the rules state above. Hope this clears everything up for you all. Let me know if there is interest.

Will we draft 2 players at once or will we go through the list 2x? If we go through 2x, is it a snake (bottom to top for round 2) or start back at the top?

Each name will be put into the draft list twice, and then random.org will determine the order, so you may end up with two good picks, or two not so good, its all up to the random gods.

I would take a few but your shipping numbers are astronomical since you are only shipping 15 packages+ a base slot you shouldnt charge 4 dollars per slot at most it should be around 60 to ship not 180

There is no base slot, which will increase the average weight of each package sent. I figured the shipping/supplies cost as such:
$1.90 average shipping cost
$.65 bubble mailer per slot
$11 for toploaders/sleeves/team bags (which comes to about .25 per slot)
$.10 each for packing tape (Assuming one roll which I get for 3.99 is enough)

I understand that there is the potential that some people may not get any cards, but I do send ALL cards out. In the event that someone does not receive a package, I will be more than happy to refund their shipping costs, I just need to be absolutely sure that the cost for shipping and supplies is covered if I am hosting a break.
that comes to around $2.90 for each of the 47 slots (not 15), so I suppose I am about a dollar high on the initial shipping cost, but I dropped 2.50 off for additional spots (which should only have .65 dropped off) so that there is more incentive to get multiple slots, which should help the break fill quicker. hope this makes sense.
