You really need to start reading the thread more carefully. My previous post said that you were correct.

The point is that YOU posted with fake outrage over a non-existent problem, and then when someone disagrees with your outrage you attack them instead, pointing out their one mistake.

My suggestion is that if you are "...getting my own anyhow and that you could do whatever you wanted." then don't post ridiculous comments about how it is unfair.

Ok, I know that 24 wrappers fit in a normal envelope, but 180 wrappers would probably go better in a flat rate for size and speed, yes?

I am thinking $5.15 shipping, < 50 cents supplies, < 40 cents paypal fees, and a few bucks to pack 180 wrappers into separate bundles of 36 and mail them next day to Topps.

If that sounds fair to you, call it $10? (That would pay me about $48 - to open all 10 cases immediately and sort, bundle, and ship all wrappers next day. I will have to work through the night as I will be opening 20 cases.)

Or you could also sell these to anyone in the break instead.
Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh


So I get 6 packs and pay you $10, correct?

I have traded my blue wave wrappers in BC break #1 to uberfatty.

He sends me pick 103 in break #1 and pick 116 in break deux.

Also, uberfatty is to pay the shipping/convenience fee ($10?) to houdini.

uberfatty to confirm.

I have the following slots available:

61, 64, 65, 67, 68, 69, 76, 85, and 87

I'd take $400 for all of them.

Favorite and retweet this message on twitter to see if we can get a full checklist before release day.

Cheap Fun Breaks ‏@CheapFunBreaks @toppscards Can we please have a 2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball full checklist? RT if you agree Topps needs to respond with a checklist!

Do we have a tentative start time for draft or is it solely based on complete checklist release?

Oooh, if it isn't the Twitter Big Shot himself!

Yeah, no possible way to say without a checklist. If it gets released this week like they promised, we can probably skip the live draft and get it done in this thread. It should take 4 or 5 days.

I am going to ask BO to ship the cases to be held for pick up. That way I can get them in the morning and start busting immediately.

I'm sorry I'm confused just catching up.

You are breaking all 20 cases in one night prior to the draft? Or only if draft is complete.

Nice job giving away the breaks, solid work as usual.

Ok, well, let me give you the full rundown.

My intention was to wait until the full checklist was released (usually the day before or day of release) to start the draft. I have 2 10-case breaks.

The drafts would go slower than usual because we are the first to actually run the draft. There is no previous draft to base ours on. I was planning about 50 spots a day - 5 days.

After the draft, we would break. I was going to take 5 days to open - 4 cases per day.

The above scenario is completely fair and probably what most of you were expecting.

However, then the damn Blue Wave announcement was made.

So, now I have a huge dilemma. Although the last Blue Wave had no pack restriction, I must assume that the packs will go almost as quickly based on the last run's extreme popularity.

I must break the cases immediately and post the packs next day via priority mail. That will get them to Topps over the weekend.

20 cases of wrappers in 24 different packages is a freaking nightmare, but something I can actually accomplish if certain prerequisites are met:

1. I need cases on release day - first thing in the morning.
2. I need to break all 20 cases immediately - all in one day instead of over 5 days. It will take 20+ hours to open 20 BC cases live on video.
3. I need to hire Jayme to help sort wrappers as I open. (I factored $100 for him into the Blue Wave $10 fee - essentially he will make less than $5 per hour.)

and most of all

4. I need the official full checklist early so that the draft can be completed by 10/16.
