I completely understand, and I won't complain if we do Tribute. But there are so few Twins cards in Tribute that I'd be a crazy person to vote for it. Some high end has a goood mix, while others don't. I'm sure most owners of teams in this club will vote for products with better odds of hitting their team players. Who knows though, maybe we'll get a Twins case.

So we have a few options, we probably can't do both high end products in March and April, but we could do one. If the group wants to do this, we probably have to skip February (we would still make payments, just no break). This would allow is to bankroll enough, but leave us starting at square 1in April again. Please post your preference.

Option A: No break in February, break master case of Tribute in March.

Option B: No break in February, low-mid end break in March, Master case of Museum Collection in April.

Option C: Break every month. Keep doing $500-900 cases until we bankroll enough to be able to do a high end break without having to skip months. If this is the choice I am going to throw 2010 Bowman Platinum, 2011 Topps Chrome and 2011 BDPP out as options.


Can everyone confirm that they want to do Bowman in May as well. I'd be shocked if this wasn't the popular choice for May, then at least we could get that set in stone.

Option C please, and I'd like the group to consider a case of bowman jumbo at some point for the higher auto count. For 1/3rd more you double the guaranteed autos.

Option C too. Would prefer to break every month and would vote either 2012 Topps S1 or 2011 Bowman Chrome for Feb. would rather something like Topps Archives than regular Bowman for May, though.

Sounds like option C is going to be the easy winner. Id like to throw out a vote for BDP if we wind up doing option C.

C sounds good and vote for Topps Archives in May for their debut since '02

As much as I would hate skipping a month...maybe skip Feb. and open a case of Platinum and a case of Archives in May? Seems that would be worth a skipped month for two cases in May

Looks like Option C is in the majority which I have no objections to as well. While we may not be able to do a full case of either, we can always do what the box price allows us to break.

I would think definitely at your convenience. Thanks for all the effort and work to do this also.

1. Nationals - Rambel
2. Yankees - upsbroker06
3. Red Sox - mgugs46
4. SF Giants - mwolfson22
5. Phillies - mgugs
6. Braves - gergs1134
7. Tigers - iluvfish2
8. Dodgers - Houdini
9. Rays- mwolfson
10. Cardinals- houdini
11. Twins- stumpfreeman
12. Mariners- chittychitty84
13. LA Angels- Friarg
14. Pirates- Adamchuk
15. NY Mets- MikeYoder
16. Blue Jays- skate81
17. Brewers- sportsamerica
18. Royals- BigSeph
19. Indians-billbanning
20. Astros- stumpfreeman
21. Rangers- Rambel
22. Cubs- thatkidbilly
23. D-backs- taturbailey24

Here is the the random list for any non mlb affiliated cards. If for some reason someone drops a team, the team will be removed from the list and everybody moves up a spot. New members will be placed at the bottom of the list in order they signed up. Just for reference sake, I think we made it through 2/3 of the list last year, so not many hits actually go out this way (although a Red USA Auto from BC did).
