Anything we can do with these slots to spice em up a little with AFLACs, wrappers or buybacks??

EDIT: Since there are 5 teams without any chance at a prospect/RC auto, could we add the high risk spots from each case and add them to each team, i.e. Brewers also get high risk for case 1 (all wrappers and any AFLAC or buyback), Mets get case 2, Marlins get case 3, Diamondbacks get case 4, and Astros get case 5. Something to make those teams a little more appealing, just throwing it out there. If not you are paying a lot of money for nothing, especially if you get the Brewers or D-Backs.

We will do 1 case of wrappers for each of those 5 teams.

Also, since this filled up in a matter of hours I am going to see if I can get another 5 cases going.

I think bigsmoot2's suggestion makes a lot of sense. Although it takes some of the risk/reward away, it would give everyone who pays $170ish for a slot a legitimate shot of hitting something that would make that slot worthwhile.

EDIT: Nevermind, 1 case of wrappers to go with each team is perfect, after reading this:
2012 Bowman Baseball
Hobby Wrapper Redemption

Redeem 24 Hobby Wrappers for a 5 card pack of the 110 card Bowman Prospects in an all new Blue Wave Parallel. Look for special refractors, Red Wave Autographs #/25 and Blue Wave Autographs #/50 randomly inserted. Address information will be posted when available.

Thank you!!
Hey guys, somehow I missed this post so the last 3 that were on the list are not on the backup list. I have a PM waiting for a response about another 5 cases.

Sounds like a plan, as you do have a chance at an auto in the redemption program, see post above.

AFLACs will still be randomed or go the team that drafted them?

Just a heads up to everyone that I am going to be out of my office today. I will update whenever I can but that might be scattered throughout the day. I will however get everything updated this evening.

Here is info on the wrapper redemption, pretty cool:

2012 Bowman Baseball Wrapper Redemption | SportsCardBlog.net – Sports Card Blog – Your Source for Sports Card Info

Hopefully we can get them sent out and then to Topps before the 10,000 packs are all gone!

Exclamation

A heads up to everyone. THERE HAS BEEN A PRICE INCREASE.

Pat, from BlowOut, gave me a call a bit ago and told me that there was a price increase since they had sold out and had to re-buy and a higher price. The price has gone up $8 per slot. Please let me know if you want out due to this. I will also try and PM everyone as well.

The updated pricing is in the OP.

I would set a payment deadline just to make sure people get this paid for, so after randoms people can trade if they want to.

Release is next Wednesday, when do you think you will be getting the cases??

Payment deadline is 48 hours from when I PM you your total.

I will see if we can get a faster shipping so we can get it by the end of the week. Generally they ship on the Monday before a release. I will let everyone know when I know something new.

Couple more updates.

I was denied doing another 5 cases. In a way I am glad, my fingers might hate me if I had to do 10.

Also, I will be thinking about the 5 teams who have no autos and what to do. I will post that tonight.

As for the wrapper redemption. If you want me to mail your wrappers to Topps for you I will be willing to do that due to the limited print run on them,

Did this change from a snake draft? I liked the idea of having 2 different teams initially. Is there any way to do something like that still? Like team A in cases 1-3 and team B in cases 4-5?
