I agree this is awesome-er. I'm just offering some suggestions to add more people into the fold and to lower the price. I also think giving the group 2 chances of landing top players adds value to the break. Can you imagine if this was 2011 Bowman, and we did the same thing? Whoever picked Harper, Banuelos, Goldschmidt and Belt would be making BANK. Even if you split that in half, they would still be making BANK.

I can say, I'd buy more slots if the price came down. For the breaks I've participated in, I try to keep my total amount in that $100 range. So if the price were to drop to $15, I would buy a few more slots.

Also, I don't fully understand your breakdown. What's the 31 Autos? Aren't there 120? 12 per case X 10 cases?

There are 31 players with autos (the sales sheet says 31 but the checklist says 33)... plus Harper. There are also 18 USA players with autographs.

You pick the player - not the case. With a 31 player checklist, we should average 4 autos per player. Plus a few USA autos per case as always.

I do not like this idea. By your own admission if the slot price was half you would buy more slots so it would be the same. These breaks are awesome for player collectors and prospectors. And this one is awsomer. Lol

Also put me down for 10 slots on the second break if it happens .

PS. Houdini you are totally insane
I can't believe I send you money.

I know you did, my friend. When you posted your request for 10, the break was full and there were 12 people ahead of you on the reserve list.

However, because you are a club member, I was able to give you a spot that I was able to reserve for the club at the very last minute.

This is a discussion thread and it sold out in 5 hours.

So did Chris approve you for a certain price? Im sure if each case is $725 and we buy 10, im sure he will go down to $675-$700 a piece on them.

I think I will hear back from him on Monday. I am tempted to request to be moved to active... but I want to make sure everything is kosher.

My main concern is having this break not count against my "2 Break Limit" until November because then we could not have another CFB for a while.

Now what happens if lets say more guys get added to the checklist (more USA and Aflac and maybe more autos). Do we then just random those spots between everyone in the break?

USA and Aflac won't affect us - they are on a per case basis.

If they add more regular autos, I will just add some more people into the break. We have months yet. They haven't even finalized the checklist.

Because you are both in the club, I can give you one spot each. The reserve list is already almost 100 spots long.

PS. Houdini you are totally insane
I can't believe I send you money.
Like I said...not really complaining. To get that many cards for $26-$30 per slot is amazing. I just wish I was able to get MORE slots, thus the suggestion. Idealy, I'd like 4 slots at the current price. If they price were to drop because of more slots becoming available, I'd take potentially 7 slots total. That's all I'm saying. I think this is an insane value...period. When Houdini originally posted this 'idea' he did say "discuss". Thus, I'm making a suggestion. That's all. I'm happy either way. It's awesomer now...but if I could have secured a few more slots, it would have been awesomer for me and several people that won't be able to get into this break or who only secured 1 spot.

I'm tempted to do my own group break...I'm just worried about the logistics of it all. I'm not as crazy as Houdini is....he's like the mad scientist. Always cooking up the next insane Group Break. Houdini is like an innovator in this area. But he inspires me. I'm already down for 4 cases through BO for myself. I'm tempted to do more cases and attempt a group break.

EDIT: BTW, Chris, you have me down twice as pakman916(1). Just letting you know.
