"The Super Bowl" of Group Breaks
I've always wanted to do a massive, multiple-case break of higher-end (i.e. "few base cards") product. I think this will work best as a team break, but I could figure out a hit break if there was enough interest. This will be pricey, but could pay off well if you're lucky. I've tried to spread it out so we can break products from a few different years. I would be able to break this all on a Saturday or Sunday morning/early-afternoon.

1) The slot holder for each team will get all of the cards for that team. The player's team will be determined by whichever team's uniform the player is pictured in on the card. If the player is not pictured in a uniform, and no team name is mentioned on the card, the card will go to whatever team the player last played for. Cards featuring multiple players from different teams will be randomed between the slot holders for those teams. Any Houston Oilers cards will go to the Tennessee Titans slot holder. If a card is pulled of a historical player from a team that is no longer in existence (i.e. the Canton Bulldogs) will be randomed between all of the slot holders. If a card is pulled of somebody who never played professional football, that card will be randomed between all of the participants.

2)The teams will be randomed after the slots are filled and 100% paid.

3) Every card (including base and parallels) will be mailed out. Please be aware that there may be teams that do not receive any cards. While this is unlikely, it is a possibility. To protect myself from charge backs/paypal disputes, any teams not receiving any cards will be mailed a random insert or game-used card from my big pile of crap cards collecting dust.

Note: The prices for the cases below are the "regular" price (non-weekend or mid-week special prices)

[B]EDIT 3/3/11 - The majority has spoken, and we are adjusting the break to make it more accessible to the majority of the members here. I have eliminated some of the "less desirable" products and we will keep the following:

1 case 2006 National Treasures $1289.99
1 case 2008 National Treasures $1390.99
1 case (24 boxes)* 2007 Leaf Limited $1749.99
1 case 2009 Exquisite $999.00

~$5430/32 = $169.69 + $10 for shipping/fees/insurance if needed/supplies = $180/slot, $177/ additional slot

We will go with whatever the majority prefers.

Approved, good luck

I believe that you meant for the Topps Sterling to be Bowman Sterling.

Indeed. Thanks for noticing that.

MrOpinion 02-01-2011 12:13 PM

Yeah! I wanna get in on this (as long as it's a team break)!

Mr. Opinion, I got you down for a slot.

SethMurphy 02-01-2011 02:43 PM

any chance 2009 Exquisite could replace something, maybe the 2010 Limited.... killer product and back in stock here at BO

I'm okay with that. MrOpinion is the only one signed up for a slot - are you okay with it?

It would lower the slot price about $3 if we took off Limited and added '09 Exquisite.

MrOpinion 02-01-2011 03:00 PM

Yup, i'd be cool with that!

kajshack 02-01-2011 03:38 PM

Changed 2010 Limited to 2009 Exquisite. Dropped slot price $5. These prices are preliminary, since I'm fairly certain we'd get a discount on such a large order. If there is enough interest, I'll email the appropriate person to see what kind of deal we can get and I'll adjust the prices.

Riversoule 02-01-2011 08:04 PM

I will take a spot.

Hail24 02-01-2011 10:18 PM

I will take a spot thanks.

kajshack 02-01-2011 11:19 PM

Got you guys down. Thanks!

SethMurphy 02-02-2011 08:23 AM

why not let's get in on this - and random me the Giants

Riversoule 02-02-2011 08:30 AM

If BO is out of a certain product, what is our back up choice? Triple Threads or discount?
Just wondering. This should be a sick break....The priciest one I've seen so far.

achilles01987 02-02-2011 08:39 AM

I'm down for one, as long as you keep it a TEAM BREAK!

kajshack 02-02-2011 10:00 AM

Got you guys down. We can start a "product back-up list" so we can substitute for products that may sell out.
With previous group breaks, I've been able to foot the bill (or at least the deposit) upfront before receiving payments. Unfortunately, I don't have $9k+ laying around, so we'll have to be 100% paid before I can purchase the stuff.

jlcherry2477 02-02-2011 07:41 PM

Been waiting for one of these on here! Use to do some with some other guys on another site, but it has died off....hopefully this fills, i'll take one!

kajshack 02-02-2011 09:24 PM

jlcherry2477 I got you down.

kajshack 02-04-2011 09:32 PM

Are we dead? Anyone else want in?

SethMurphy 02-04-2011 10:06 PM

if this dies, you should restart with something that involved 2009 exquisite while it's in stock... that's sick stuff

achilles01987 02-06-2011 05:01 PM

Whatever you do, keep 07 Limited in this!

sugarbear71 02-07-2011 12:29 AM

im interested but im waiting to see how much i get from ebay

Riversoule 02-07-2011 06:29 AM

Any chance we cut the boxes to be opened in half, switch it to 2 teams per buy in and have 16-total participants? I just don't see us getting 32 people to join.

Or maybe have an alternate Exquisite/Limited break early on with 8 of us.
I'm just in the mood for some high end cards and would he much more patient for this BIG break if we had something else in queue on addition to it.

6 people after a week, we won't be busting until June.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 11:57 AM.
