Thanks for getting the scans up so quick...I already know what I want at #24...kinda regret trading outta 19, but whatever, I'll have a lot of parralels to trade or sell off

who wants bronze?!?!?!

I saw in chat someone threw out the thought of a player draft case break of 2012 olympics...that would be cool.....

Yeah, I mentioned it in the video. We'd have to go off the relic/auto checklist, so that people had a chance of getting some hits. The Champions autos might throw things off, cause I didn't see Jenner or Strug base while sorting.

That would be neat. Another interesting format would be an "event" draft. Some good possible draws:

- Men's Swimming
- Women's Gymnastics
- Women's Soccer (yes plz)

Don't really care what format it ends up being, but I'd love another shot at this product. Gotta jump on board quick though because case prices are going UP, UP, UP.

Splitting it by sport is a great idea. We'd have to lump the more obscure ones...BMX, Fencing, etc...

Really nice break even with the corner damage. Great job Taj. I'm at #9 and i really gotta see how the chips fall to see which card I'm getting. I'm assuming all 3 Jenner, Strugg, Biondi will be gone, as well as Lolo and Natalie from the damaged lot, and the Phelps relic.

Well...I will say that I won't prevent myself from joining another 1-2 case break of this if you decide to sneak another in before the big Chrome blowout at the end of August...lol

Summer Olympics start at the end of July this year? I always that it was more of a mid-August thing...oh well.

I wonder if Topps will plan a 2014 product for the winter games...GIMME THAT BODE MOJO.

Another case or two of this would fill up my vacant July, that's for sure!

Player or sport would be awesome with this. I think a player draft would have much less spots than this, which isn't a bad thing, just costs more.

I've posted the draft list in the OP, along with the pictures. If you aren't available to make your pick, you will get the next available hit on the list, unless you've sent me something ahead of time!

As an Event Draft, it'd be 29 slots (break up Track, Swimming, Gymnastics, and Soccer into Men and Women). At current pricing - $925 a case - we'd be looking at $36.50/$34.50 per slot for one case and $73/$71 per slot for two cases.

As a Player Draft, there would be 137 slots (31 slots only have one card in the set, and it's either a Champions or Cut Auto; VERY high risk). At current pricing, we'd be looking at $19/$17 per slot for one case, $38/$36 for two cases, and $95/$90 for five cases.

Decisions, decisions, decisions...

FWIW, my vote would be for a two-case event snake draft...although I am really open to anything.

Important head-scratching question: Bela Karolyi was a women's gymnastics coach but he is indeed a man. Would he go to Women's Gymnastics in an event draft?
