Stupid question....but does a full checklist actually have to be published before the release? Or can they just keep (during & after launch) a partial checklist? I feel like even old products show just a small, limited checklist, or at least as far as autos and such are concerned. Am I understanding this correctly?

There haven't been any recent updates to the checklist, and I would expect that to be the case until next Wednesday, when the product goes live. This is why I wanted the draft to start the following Thursday. If the final checklist isn't ready by then, well, we'll have to use whatever we have available at the time.

I have no reason to believe there won't be a full checklist, but also believe Topps likes to wait as long as possible, so people don't jump off the ship should the checklist be less than desireable. I don't feel like that's going to be the case with Chrome, as the announcements they've already made pretty much make this break and product a no-brainer.

Would you mind putting a price on your slots? I'm sure OJ and Calvin would like to make an offer, but they need a starting point.

As per the host, I need to put up a price on the slots. Sorry for the mistake, I didn't know this.
I'll just take it down instead. Sorry guys.

Matt, are we following the picks in case 1,3,5 to be the same or can slots pick various teams per case?

You can pick whichever team is available for whichever cases you're picking for. For example, if you've got pick 1 in cases 1, 3, and 5, you are more than welcome to take the Nationals in 1, Rangers in 3, and A's in 5.

The initial post will keep track of all teams available per case at the time picks are being made. Some folks will have to keep me honest if I fall behind, but I don't expect that to happen, seeing that the break time directly coincides with my work hours (desk job).

If your scheduled Pick is at 10, and the 9:30 guy picks right away, you still have until 10 to make the pick right?

You'll actually have until 10:30 to pick your slot when your turn comes up, since there's a 30-minute draft window per pick. If the clock turns to 10:30, and you haven't picked, then I'll make your pick based on either the pre-ranked draft list I'll be providing, or a list you sent, if you sent one.

Does that make sense? I sometimes get lost in my own words :-)

okay what if it became your turn to pick at 9am, but your pick isn't until 12pm, do you still get from 9 am to 12:30 to pick?

Yessir, you sure do. I set up the draft so it ends before we break on that Friday. If it ends even sooner than when I have the last pick drafting, then that's perfectly fine, but it WON'T end after!

Not starting anything here for arguments, but I just thought about the following after reading a few posts.


Imagine if the host of a case break posted a 30 slot case break up for filling. No price was given and just said "Best offer" for a slot. Could you imagine the chaos it would cause lol. Thats how I feel about buying and selling of slots.
