Here's some extra clarification:

A "Hit" is considered and Auto or a Relic. All Hits will be available individually as a draftable card.

A "Base Lot" is considered anything that is not a Hit. This includes any parallels we pull, including a 1/1 parallel and Printing Plates.

The main reason I did it this way, I don't like having extra pulls left over to random at the end of the draft. Based on the stated odd, the # of slots should be exact. The only way it won't be is if we pull and extra Auto or Relic. If I included rare parallels as "Hits" then it adds more "randoms" to the draft.

The second reason I did it this way, it adds value to the base lots. After the break has completed, a base lot has the potential to be of higher value than an Auto/Relic Hit if we pull a 1/1. So let's say we pull Platinum Mickey Mantle. It has the potential to be towards the top of the draft, along with the base cards. There's also the potential to pull multiple rare parallels in one box.

Once the break is completed, I will post all of the Hits and the Parallels by Box. If you guys want the base listed by box, I'll do it by request.

Thank you for the clarification. Did you get my payment for the reserve spot? Just asking because the list was not updated. Thanks

Okay, I have some bad news...and some more bad news.

1) I've read that Marquee's release date was pushed back 1 week. So instead of August 24th, it looks like August 31st.

2) I am going on vacation starting September 2nd.

What does this mean? We could probably do the break when the case gets here, BUT I don't think we can draft. And I don't know if I can get the cards out that quickly. I guess timing is going to be really critical. Historically, I usually get pre-ordered cases on release day or the day after. We could do the break on Wednesday or Thursday. Drafting is going to be the most difficult part because I have guest flying in on Thursday that I need to entertain. Then I have to deal with packing and shipping the cards. It's just going to be REALLY tight in terms of timing for me.

The alternative is, we can wait till my guest leave, which is the Thursday after Labor Day. (Thurs, Sept 8th).

Let me know what you guys want to do. The best case scenario is for the cases to come in on Wednesday. Thursday will screw me big time.

Break it asap and start the draft as planned. If it doesn't get shipped out for a few days after that, it would still leave people time to sell or trade the card they are going to get.

I kinda know how you feel. I've been in the last 4-5 in a few of the bigger randoms this past month. It's getting real old real fast.

Just a comment on "The Break" and "The Draft".

I will Break it the night it comes in. As mentioned, it should be here that Wednesday (31st) or Thursday (1st). I will post all hits that night. Hopefully, I'll have a list ready too. I expect the break to start at 8PM Eastern. Most likely on UStream.

The Draft will happen 2 days after the break (Friday or Saturday). Honestly, the draft can start right away, but there will not be a clock or any pressure to make a pick. I imagine the first few picks will know right away what they want. The official draft clock will start at 8PM and end at 1AM. If we do not finish, the clock will start up again 8PM the next day...and repeat until the draft is complete.

Lastly, if I am unable to get all of this done over that weekend, it will delay shipping until the next weekend due to my vacation plans. I am really sorry about this inconvenience. Blame Topps. None of this would have been an issue if Topps could release it's products on time. I'll do the best that I can.

Thanks all. Should be a fun break! Good luck to everyone.
