The random will be requested tomorrow, that's for dang sure! Currently working on a pre-ranked draft list you fine folks can use to guide your choices.

Yessir! Draft can actually start tomorrow as well, if the person who ends up with pick #1 feels confident enough about the current checklist.

Break Details:
- Once filled, the participant list will be randomized three times by the moderator, and that will determine the draft order for cases 1, 3, and 5. Draft order will reverse for cases 2 and 4.

Though a great idea, what notsublime posted below is correct. Case 1, 3, and 5 will be picked first, top down, then 2 and 4 moving bottom up.

I was confirming your payment, and see that vetspts paid last night. He didn't PM or post in the thread, and I didn't get an email. My apologies. I went ahead and refunded your slot.

FYI folks, just tweeted at Topps asking if there was a "chance" Marte would be included and they replied "nope". Perhaps I'm reading too far into it, but this leads me to believe that the checklist is perhaps complete?

Well, the responsiveness is a plus, if nothing less. Any others we are thinking about/wondering about? If so, keep trying. Then, if we keep getting "nope" we can probably assume the checklist is final.

If the checklist is final, we'd like to see it. The way it stands right now, there is a good number of auto slots without a player assigned to it. Plus, Harper, Darvish, and Bauer haven't shown their faces yet on what is available.

I think that's all we're getting today

I asked if the checklist is complete and I haven't heard back yet. Meanwhile, they've moved on to more Platinum-y tweets.

So, we know there's no Marte LOL. I would guess they completed the checklist shortly after Bauer (maybe he was the last inclusion?), so we probably won't see Matt Harvey, either.

Hey, while we wait...quick question.

Right now, Pineda is listed on Mariners, Montero on the Yankees. Given the trade, these guys will show up on their current teams for all their cards, correct?

In other words, if someone wants Pineda, they should shoot for the Yanks?

Any other examples of this type of thing that folks should be aware of?

Going to be tough to draft teams with 25 autos not accounted for

Agree. I'm doing my best over here to speculate on rookie autos as well as the various combo autos they have....

Correct! Pineda on the Yanks, Montero on the M's...both already have had cards this year with their new teams. That original checklist needs some serious updating

Can't think of any other instances of this though...will Hanley be a Marlin or a Dodger?

Yup...would not mind at all if we didn't start drafting until mid-August when we presumably will have a much clearer picture of who the autos will be.

Looking at other recent products, including Archives and Platinum, Topps has Montero in a Mariners uniform and Pineda in Pinstripes. So that shouldn't be an issue.

Overall, the team indicated on the card will be where the player gets sorted to. If there are other scenarios like the above, we'll want to look at other products checklists or eBay to see what uniform Topps has them in.

Agreed. Draft won't officially start until August 13th, but whoever gets top billing will be able to pick whenever they want before then. I've already ranked the current checklist, based on who is on the checklist, plus Harper, Cespedes, Darvish, and Bauer, and how many different cards each team has.
