Just make sure to record the break and I'll be fine with the start time.

If you hit a ring card, I have no toploaders here that thick - I only have up to 180pt. BO has 240pt, but if I order like 2 packs for $6, they are going to charge me $8 in shipping

Looks like I hit 2 rings so my bidding paid off. Thanks for the recap video!

There are literally dozens of triple teamed cards. If there is no objection, I'm going to give them out as follows so we don't have to ask for 900 randoms:

1. If two of three are from one team, it goes to that team
2. Doubles and triples will be divided even
3. One player for three teams I will divide up so each person gets something.

Otherwise it's literally like 50 + randoms.

UPDATE

Everything is sorted - I will pack it up tomorrow and hopefully it will be in time for it to ship tomorrow. Worst case, it will ship Friday.

For the people who hit the rings - NYY, OAK, CWS - I need to see if I can get across the bridge into PA tomorrow, because the 180pt toploaders I have will not fit these cards. I thought I had some larger ones laying around, but I dont.

If you didnt hit a ring, your cards will definitely be packaged and ready to go tomorrow.

Everything is going to ship today. I figured a way to package the ring cards inside sleeves, team bag and rigid cardboard taped onto both sides. Should be fine that way - plus I then put them inside bubble mailers.

FYI shipping was pretty pricey this time since several people had several teams Several people needed priority envelopes and one needed a medium flat rate to fit everything. I'll throw some extra $$$ next break bc if I would have had 400/500 count boxes it would have been cheaper.

Did we officially decide what we are doing with the code cards and wrappers?

I think it was decided that we would sell the code cards. Not sure about the wrappers. I would just suggest we wait for the code program to start before we sell the code cards.

I'd say we sell the wrappers and codes and put that towards a future break. Prices now should be solid and maybe that lets us upgrade a case idea and/or get more of the product.

I think everyone was okay with selling the code cards. Or at least noone was really opposed.

I think we should sell the wrappers as well to build the pot, this will give us a little leeway to preorder if we want etc. I will PM all and tell them to voice their opinion in the thread rather than starting a new one.

Please throw out some ideas for March as well. Tribute and Heritage both release in March, we will not have enough to do a 8 box case of tribute but if people were interested we could optionally add funds for those of us that do.

I vote to sell the wrappers also and bank the money. I still like Topps Heritage for March, but always love seeing the older wax busted also...bowman chrome etc...

Sell the wrappers BUT I would like a shot at purchasing it before you list them on EBay.

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm OK with selling both the wrappers and the code cards. As far as March goes, that's a tough one. I'd vote for another lower end such as 2011 Bowman/Topps Chrome, or 2010 Platinum so we can roll even more over for high end. If we do high end at some point, I'd rather it be 2012 Museum Collection or 2012 Triple Threads than Tribute.

I agree with selling codes and wrappers. Still voting for Tribute in March; add funds if needed to do an 8-box case.

I am in favor of selling the codes and wrappers also. For March, I would prefer to do a older Bowman/Topps Chrome product and bank towards Triple Threads when it comes out.
