Black Saturday 07/08 UD SPA Hockey Grp Case Break
Hockey has started and Upper Deck's SP Authentic Hobby is one of my favorite products of the year no matter what sport it is. Someone else has a Football break going, so why not try our luck at pulling some Kane, Toews, Price or other up and coming 2007/2008 rookies? This product is already LIVE.. so the quicker the list gets filled the faster I can lock in a price & order the case. As a disclaimer, I will not have any slots so any and all hits will go to BOARD MEMBERS!!!
To keep it on the cheaper side I'm looking at 4 HIT slots per box. 3 slots would be for the advertised autographs and the 4th slot would be for ALL the base rookies and other insert cards for that particular box. All base cards will NOT be involved in the break. For a 12 box case that would be a grand total of 48 HIT slots. At the current posted BO case price, cost for slots (WITH S&H and supplies factored in) would be as follows:
1 slot = $27
2 slots = $52
3 slots = $75
4 slots = $96
Below is the product description from BO and UD. After watching a ton of videos on YouTube, I have seen HOT BOXES with multiple autographs, but I've also seen boxes shorted an autograph. So... some rules: Once the participant list is full and all slots are paid for, the list will be randomized using RANDOM.ORG. On the day of the break, hits will be posted IN THE ORDER they are pulled. IF a box is shorted an autograph, the 3rd hit slot for that box will be put on hold. Any extra autos from other boxes will be put aside and missing auto slot holders will get these EXTRA HITS in the order they were pulled. IF all boxes have the correct number of hits AND we have some extra hits, then the EXTRA HITS will be randomized (using RANDOM.ORG) at the end and everyone will have a fair chance at them based on the number of slots they purchased. If the overall case break is shorted an autograph, then that person from the shorted box will get refunded 75% of their slot price AND will get all the necessary items to write UD and get some mystery goodies.
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 other BO Grp Breaks 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. I will upload photos and update the Grp Brk thread as the hits are pulled.
Remember.. this is a few weeks away but I think it would be a fun Thanksgiving weekend break. FOR CLARIFICATION: 29 NOV would be the scheduled break day. Last year's rookie crop has some big big potential! As interest in this break grows I will post my Paypal account. Thanks and good luck.
