Then we can actually reserve slots - to give us an idea how many cases we are going to bust. You can reserve your spots but if you change your mind later, you are free to pull out. Please do not reserve a bunch of spots if you know you are more than likely to drop out though...

Based on previous Finest products, we can assume that it will be a 8 box case with 16 autos, a few bonus autos, 8 rookie redemptions, 6 xfractors /299, 4 green /199, 4 rarer refractors (orange, gold, red... /99, /59, /25), and ~26 regular refractors. There will also be three different insert sets.

Since the base set is only 100 cards, I think we should be able to get 5 sets and most of a 6th...

So spots...

Autos (16)
Bonus autos (2 or 3?)
Rookie redemptions (8)
Gold/Red REF (3)
xfractor lot (1)
green REF lot (1)
orange REF lot (1)
reg refractor lot (1)
Base insert lot (non auto/relic, non parallel) (1)
Base sets or partials (7)

If we do not count the bonus autos at all and add in a 7th partial set as a safety net... I see 41 spots. I think there WILL be bonus autos though.

Lets say we did 40 spots and randomed off unclaimed spots at the end?

Lets guess $1000 for a case - could be as high as $1200 eventually... I know that 2009 was closer to $800 on pre-order if I remember correctly.

That would make the slot price $25 before shipping/supplies/fees.

What are your thoughts on my figures? All help is appreciated - and yes I know none of this is guaranteed, just looking for a starting point.

I would NOT join this break. No offense, i just don't like the setup..

I think Finest is an awesome team break product, and if we did a straight team break i'd join, maybe even do 2 slots, but not this.

I would be interested. Not sure how many spots until we can get some more specifics. One thing is for sure, if Houdini is running this, it will be a first class break. He does an amazing job!

I am in the middle of a draft for CFBIII - but I am going to create a reserve list on this thread here shortly. So if you want to reserve some spots before the actual thread goes live, post a number. Yes, you can back out once the checklist and details go public - but I doubt you will. Also, we will get the lowest price that BO can give me. I have no problem ordering 2 - 4 cases. We can make this break a monster... you can also get in after the official break thread goes live if there are any spots left.

We won't go live until BO gets the cases on pre-order anyway and then I would only need enough people to pay early for the reserve.

Probably will not need the money until mid or late september.

We are at #25 already and I figure Troy will get 8 at least and EXP probably will get at least 4 total... That puts us up to 35 slots filled. Think we should be able to do at least 3 cases of this easily.

Thanks!

I submitted the official thread - it should go live tomorrow sometime.

Please confirm your spots in that thread. Some of you I guessed at the number - you can increase or decrease of course. You can also spread the spots out over different cases...

Spots look like $26 for first and $24.50 each additional - this is pending approval of course!
