Default Boxbreakers 2010 Topps Five Star 2 Case Break

Hello all. I have been a group break leader for quite awhile now but I am new to the Blowout forum so I figured Id start by introducing myself so you know more about the guy you may be thinking about sending your hard earned money to! My name is Chris and I have run the Boxbreakers Group Breaks for nearly 4 years. I have my own website where we have organized breaks in the past and I have been active on another site to host those breaks. In fact I have been voted that sites Group Break Host for the past 2 years in a row. Our breaks were even featured in the New York Times! I am active on Youtube with over 1000 box break videos and close to 1000 subscribers. I dont say any of this to brag but simply to show my credentials that I know what Im doing and to show that you wont find many breaks out there that run more smoothly than ours. If you want links to any of the above references just PM me.

That being said, I have been a lurker here as I purchase most of my stuff through Chris here at Blowout anyway and have noticed how quickly some of these breaks fill and to a break host theres nothing sweeter than a fast filling break! So what the heck, I thought Id try it out and see how it goes over here on the Blowout forum. I run all my breaks the same way in that the breaks are all on Youtube video and links followed by pics are posted here in the break thread when its time to break. Multiple player hits are determined right when we pull the card as it goes to the team most often represented on the card, or if a tie it goes to the person who owns the most teams on the card, or if still a tie it goes to the team on the left (if side by side) or the team on the top (if vertical). That way we avoid randoms and everyone knows when we pull it who it goes to!

This break will be for two cases of 2010 Topps Five Star (3 boxes each). I LOVE this product and have already busted 10 cases as part of group breaks so how about a couple more! This break will be the two tier format where we will have 16 slots and you will be randomly assigned a team from tier one and a team from tier two. A Mod will conduct the randomizations for us (including the participant list). Time will be allotted for any trades prior to breaking. Here are the hard details;

Product: 2 Case Break of 2010 Topps Five Star
Cost of Product = $2850 ($1425 x 2) (Note adjusted slot price due to drop in product price to $1325 per case)
$2650/16 slots = $166 ea
Cost of shipping/supplies = $4
Paypal fees = $4

Total cost per slot = $174 (Paid by Paypal)

Heres how I have divided the Tiers;

Tier 1:
49ers
Bengals
Bills
Broncos
Browns
Bucs
Chargers
Chiefs
Colts
Cowboys
Lions
Panthers
Patriots
Rams
Steelers
Vikings

Tier 2:
Bears
Cardinals
Dolphins
Eagles
Falcons
Giants
Jaguars
Jets
Packers
Raiders
Ravens
Redskins
Saints
Seahawks
Texans
Titans

Participant List:
1. Saintsfan9
2. Greenjdo
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8. Pikeman80
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.
14. Riversoule
15.
16. Pikeman80

Break is now open. Format and slot pricing are within the guidelines and the host has provided verification for the age requirement. Please do your own due diligence and only join if you are comfortable with dealing with the host.

Would it help to cut this one back to a single case...that would make the cost $94 per slot.

Thanks, got you down.

I adjusted the slot price down by $5 to reflect the lower case price that Blowout now lists of $1350.

Price adjusted down due to drop in case price again! I'll keep this open another few days but if we don't fill by the end of the weekend I'll go ahead and close her down.
