Poll will be submitted Sunday, throw out any other ideas (but again has to be about $1000 or less)
I think Finest would be the way to go...Would there be any benefit in paying in July/August but not breaking anything and rolling it all into Triple Threads in September? Not sure if it benefits anyone doing in that way, but just wanted to see what everyone thought? BTW Paypal was sent...Thanks again and Good Luck everyone with whatever we break

Poll submitted. Hopefully enough people will vote in the next few days so we can get something ordered or preordered. Still need quite a few payments as well.

Okay guys, I have to get something off my chest (and this isn't intended for anyone specific). Just like the other club, I'm getting tired of chasing people down (to pay or to vote etc). I send out PM's whenever payment is due or a poll is set up. Usually I still end up PM'ing 5-6 people after the deadlines to make payment or vote or set up silent auctions preparing like those teams are going to be available just to have the person show up at the last minute (and me waste my time). I ask for product choices and noone answers and then when I set up the polls or what not people are upset that items aren't included.

I want to keep this going as I enjoy the breaks, but i need input and accountability from the members. So moving forward, please subscribe to the thread (not sure why you wouldn't have already) and be accountable for your payments (I usually try and make it 10-14 days for a deadline).

I am not going to be PM'ing people to pay etc anymore, so if you do not pay by the deadline, your team becomes available immediately. I have done away with the back up list as it is old and not even accurate anymore and we will random any available teams to those interested otherwise they will go in the unclaimed team bin and auctioned off.

I vote for Bowman Platinum

I would like to put my 2 cents in on your chest problem I agree 100 % with your problems in collecting monthly payments and auction problems. Have you questioned group members on what the root cause of these problems could be. I beleive some of the problems with BB in particular is that the majority of the hits worth anything go to about 6 teams. What I would propose is that about once every 4 months we random everyones name and #1 can draft any team he wants. Ex. I have the reds now I could either draft the Reds if I want or take another team for that month only. Also on the Auction random everyones name #1 can pass or choose one of the extra teams for say $35.00 after we go through the list any teams left then can be auctioned off. Thanks for letting me rant.

Looks like Oakland is now available for those interested, poll closes tomorrow, but Finest looks to be the choice thus far. All other payments for July have been received.

Finest is the winner of the poll. Release date is 08/0812. Will PM all regarding setting up August payment and silent auction but will plan on deadlines of 08/01/12 for both.

We also have 18 commited to the full case of TTT, 4 people have yet to answer. Please be certain that you want to do this as backing out at the last minute kind of screws over the others involved.

The way this will work is the club dues will cover the first 9 boxes, you will receive all hits from those 9 boxes for the $45 fee. We will also have a silent auction for unclaimed teams for these 9 boxes as well.

The additional 9 boxes will be opt in, if you choose to add funds you will receive all cards from the additional 9 boxes for your team as well. Those that choose not to participate will receive nothing from the additional boxes. Any unclaimed team cards will go into a random draft.

So far the price per team comes out to:

Case price $1645/18= 91.38

91.38*1.029=94.04

$94.04 + $2 additonal for shipping/supplies= $96/team

Subject to change if people opt in or drop out.

Just a quick note - I go on vacation in mid August until labor day, so if possible I would like to break Finest as soon as it comes out so I can pack/sort/ship before vacation

Also I will have very little internet access from 8/16-labor day
