I'd be in for a lonely 1 again.

EDIT
Aw crap, I just saw this was already filled. Don't those who were in the last one get first stab at the next one?

Why does BO impose a 2 Break Limit on you? You're buying a ton of product. I don't get it.

It's to protect the people in the break. Sure, houdini is a reputable group case breaker, but he could just as easily be some fraud building up our trust with the first few breaks and then run off with the money. Not saying he is....he's only the most AWESOMEST case breaker to bless this forum, but in the words of the immortal houdini... "Just sayin."

But I think "future" breaks shouldn't count towards the 2 break limit. As long as he's not collecting money, he should be allowed to form other breaks.

It's not on me per se, they actually try to minimize the risk on the host - all hosts. If I could have my way, I would do a break a week - with one each month being a monster.

Look at it from their side though - what if something happens. I could have been severely injured by that drunk driver for instance... what happens to the $6,000.00 worth of cards sitting on my sorting table right now or any other cases I might have had on their way to me? By limiting my exposure, it protects us all. (You would always be protected by Paypal within 45 days.)

I have NO problem with the 2 active breaks at a time - they have even allowed me to have 3 going at once occasionally. The only stipulation that I would change is that pre-sale breaks like the Finest break and the '11 BDPP should not count against that "2 active break limit" until we order the cards.

Yes, exactly. No offense taken. Once these 4 cases are delivered, it will go a long way to put people at ease - plus the most valuable card has already been delivered.

Thx for the explanations, makes sense. That said, I would participate in your weekly breaks if they allowed them, so you can consider me a fish who is being reeled in by your master plan

Wow, can't believe this filled so quickly. If I can get one spot as a club member that would be much appreciated. If not, I understand. Thanks!

UPDATE:

Ok guys, Chris just emailed me back and gave me a price quote of $710 each, but he does want $2000 down also. That means I am going to need to collect money from everyone for the deposit.

Things you need to know:

1. I will need this from everyone and I will need it right away - I will tally it up and put it on the thread when we go active (the exact number).

2. I will immediately send every penny to BO and post the receipt on this thread. You can even call BO to verify that I sent the deposit.

3. If you decide that you do not want to pay the deposit, that is fine. Let me know and I will give your spot(s) to the reserve list, there are plenty of them waiting.

So if I am reading correctly each will give a partial deposit with the balance due a week before the break correct?

This also means they didn't restrict the amount of cases you can buy.

Did they say anything about the 2 case breaks at a time rule?

Yes, everyone pays a small deposit (I was hoping they would waive this).

No, Chris said nothing about it being 10 cases at all.

No, it was a VERY quick email that basically said: "$710 per plus $200 deposit each... price quotes are subject to change." I am asking Robert in a message now about this not counting until November. I am pretty sure he will agree.

we're still supposed to wait until the status is changed to "active" before paying right? Even if it's a deposit

If anyone is interested in trading some of their slots, I would be interested in acquiring them. I was out of town when this break filled, but I'd be happy to trade you cards in your favor for a handfull of slots. Please PM me if you are interested and we can try to work out a trade for SV$ above what the slot cost is.

Thanks!
