We are coming up on the release date of 2012 Topps Finest Baseball rather quickly. It was a favorite of mine when I was a kid, and this year is looking like it is going to be a great product. In theory we will get at least 1 HOT BOX (1:4 cases) where every card in a numbered parallel. There have also been a few new additions, Trevor Bauer and Will Middlebrooks will both have RC autos in this years Finest.

There will only be 27 spots in this break. I looked through the checklist and [B]as of now the Orioles, Astros, and Indians HAVE NO CARDS in the product.[/B] If anyone from these teams ends up in the checklist we will random the cards out. From a quick glace, most teams will have the opportunity for an auto, but some teams have no auto's available.

[COLOR="Red"][SIZE="4"]There are (as of right now) 5 Rookie Redemptions, numbered 1-5. If Topps announces ahead of time who all, or some, of the redemptions will be of, those will go to the team who that player plays for at the time of the break. This has to be from Topps, and not speculation from the hobby community. If none, or not all, are announced [B]these will be randomed to the teams who get no autos in the break. If every person gets an auto then the RC Redemptions will be randomed amongst every spot.

Topps has just annouced that Rookie Redemption #1 is Starling Marte for the PIRATES. This card now belongs to that spot[/SIZE][/COLOR][/B]

Since this is a RANDOM TEAM BREAK, once we are full and paid up a moderator will random the list of spots 5 times to come up with the order. Then a moderator will random the list of 27 teams 5 times. The lists will then be matched up, from top to bottom on each list, to determine the team that you will be getting in the break.

You may buy/sell/trade within the break, but please do not sell a spot to an outside forum member without checking with me first.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:[/B]
• Please make you payments promptly so we can get the case ordered. I am on the west coast and it takes a week to get here. The sooner you pay, the sooner we pull some monster cards
• Breaks will be done rather late for those of you on the east coast. However the breaks will be recorded so you can watch later if you choose.
• I will do my best to get scans of all the hits posted the same night as the break.
• I, the host, reserve the right to participate in the break
• The break will take place live on Ustream.com and will be recorded if you cannot not make the break time.
• If you hit a card worth $250 or more you will be required to pay additional shipping costs for insurance and/or certified mail.
• Buying/selling/trading of spots in the break can only be made to other members in this break.
• Due to the large number of spots in this break it may take me a few days to get all the cards out in the mail.
• Please Subscribe to this thread.
• Anyone outside the USA will be required to pay upgraded shipping costs (yes you Canadians!).

Break is now open. Format and slot pricing are within the guidelines and the host has provided verification for the age requirement. Please do your own due diligence and only join if you are comfortable with dealing with the host.

Vintage Collector 07-04-2012 09:15 AM

I will take slot #13 please.

biged_0 07-04-2012 09:31 AM

I'll take spot 3

mwolfson22 07-04-2012 12:15 PM

I'll take spot #12

bcxraider 07-04-2012 12:16 PM

i'll take a slot. thanks bud.

tajikey 07-04-2012 12:52 PM

What are the chances each case can be randomized separately?

imnotded 07-04-2012 01:16 PM

[QUOTE=tajikey;2922209]What are the chances each case can be randomized separately?[/QUOTE]

It's possible I suppose. What would the guys that have already committed think? Or those that are thinking about getting in on this break?

Doing separate randoms is a bit more work for me, but not enough to where I wouldnt do it.

billbanning 07-04-2012 01:26 PM

I'd be in for one random spot but would prefer the same team throughout all cases. I got hosed when Houdini did his Tribute break with random teams for each box, $300 and NO cards. Just my opinion.

Luckily with this break you will get cards, but I know what you mean. Thanks for your input.

natbornkiller 07-04-2012 02:37 PM

Last year a team like the dbacks had only justin upton (the better upton brother) and 5 cases of a team with only one player @150 beans,
you might want to make sure every team is properly represented

Looks like the Mets only have a Wright non auto in the checklist unless I missed someone.

There are teams that might only have 1 or 2 players, but the gamnle is part of the fun IMO. That being said, if more people would rather have multiple randoms I dont mind doing that.

Orangejello727 07-04-2012 03:20 PM

1 slot please!

tajikey 07-04-2012 04:01 PM

Holding tight. Would prefer random teams per case....

jlcherry2477 07-04-2012 04:04 PM

What about Redemption cards?? Do we know what team those players are going to be?? I'd be in for 1 spot....

murphy1313 07-04-2012 05:25 PM

Count me in for this one..... I'll take slot #6 please....

JohnAndrew 07-04-2012 05:27 PM

One random spot please!

imnotded 07-04-2012 05:48 PM

[QUOTE=jlcherry2477;2923083]What about Redemption cards?? Do we know what team those players are going to be?? I'd be in for 1 spot....#17[/QUOTE]

They will go to the team that they are on at the time of the break. If they do something like the lucky redemptions in Bowman then we will just have to random them.

bcxraider 07-04-2012 05:52 PM

i vote for one team. especially with how we are doing this break right after release i feel like the potential to sell team stuff is better with 5 cases worth of cards as opposed to 1 case of 5 diff teams...although the risk is a bit greater.

YanksBillsFan 07-04-2012 07:18 PM

I'll take a spot, 21 please.

chadc13 07-05-2012 02:11 AM

I will take one slot for sure maybe 2. Thanks for hosting

imnotded 07-05-2012 11:30 AM

[QUOTE=chadc13;2925454]I will take one slot for sure maybe 2. Thanks for hosting[/QUOTE]

I will just put you down for one now. Just post again if you would like another spot.

greenjdo 07-05-2012 03:53 PM

Slut 8 please

fly606us 07-05-2012 04:01 PM

#5 for me, thanks
