All good hits, so really just about who is on the card I guess.

Topps just tweeted this sneak peek of 5-star baseball. I hope this is Box 1 Card 1!

According to the product info page on Blowout, the product should be released next week, 11/14. I'll post a break time as soon as I get tracking info. Thanks!

Default Just a thought...

In case anyone needs or wants to get out, I have $100. this weekend for anyone's slot. Couldn't bring myself to buy a box but have some teacher sub money left this week.
Thanks,
VinnyH

Default Yep...

Thanks James, aka samoan3d.
I see you're in a couple of breaks, at least, so best of luck with all your slots.
Best to All,
VinnyH

Best to you as well. I hope this product lives up to the hype and we all do well. I probably went overboard. I have these Five Star spots:

DizzyDSki - B1:H5
oldgoldy: C1:B1:H4, C1:B2:H5
Houdini:
B1: A's
B2: Reds, Mariners
B3: Mets, Brewers
B4: Rays
B5: Cubs
B6: White Sox

...and will continue to B/S/T right up to the release

Please keep me in mind for all Cardinal hits (Gibson and Musial, in particular) before going to eBay. Thank you all and best of luck.

Default Seems we have base now...

Early analysis: 2012 Topps Five Star checklist

Topps announced there will be an 80 card base set also. I propose that all base get randomized amongst the 15 slots with 1 person winning them all. Consider them like an extra hit (That's assuming no one misses a hit from any box)

My guess is they will have 3 base per box like football.

I'm easy,
VinnyH

I can do this. Another option is to do the random per box. I can do that too.

Default Seems Topps Tweeted that...

1 base per box

I'm fine with randoming per box or for all 3.

Thanks,
VinnyH

Great news everyone! I received the tracking information on the case and it will be delivered tomorrow night!

I think there will be quite a few breaks of Five Star going on tomorrow night, so I'd like to try sneaking this one in a little earlier, aiming for a 6:30pm ET break time. This will allow extra time to scan the hits and have them shipped out the next day. The break will be recorded as well. If the majority would like to bump this break , I can do that as well, but would really prefer to go a little earlier. Many of you are participating in other Five Star breaks of 1-2-3+ cases and this way you could watch those as well.

Here's a link to my BlogTV page: www.blogtv.com/people/dizzydski

As far as the base cards go, I'll plan on randoming these with everyone...if we get three base, there'll be three winners in the random...if we somehow get more base, there'll be more winners. The base can sell quite well, so I'd like to "spread the love" as best as possible.

We could also consider randoming the x-number of base cards to the "lowest" hits in the break. For those who will be joining the live break, we could discuss what are the lowest three (or more) hits and then random accordingly live on Blog. I kinda like that idea the best...thoughts? Whoever hits the Babe Ruth bat knob doesn't really need an extra base card

The earlier the better for me! As far as the base cards go, I'm up for whatever you (or the majority) think is fair. Looking forward to tomorrow!

Default Great news on the shipment...

I'm around all evening but would vote for the earliest time since I'm anxious to see what we all pull. I guess the base going to 3 people seems the fairest move.
Thanks Again,
VinnyH

I agree with earliest is best and with spreading the wealth as much as possible. Ideally, giving the base to the lowest value hits would be great. However, I think in order to protect yourself from people complaining, you are probably better off just randoming to everyone. If we were taking more time between break and ship, then you could get concensus on lowest hits, but I agree with your decision to try and ship as soon as possible too.

Good call...I'd like to think we could get by any disagreement on the lowest hits, but full agreement usually isn't the case, and to avoid any drama and be 100% sure there won't be any problems, hurt feelings, etc., I will random the signup list five times and the first card will go to the person on the top of the list...second to second...and so on.

6:30pm ET sounds good for at least a few of us, so 6:30p ET it is. Looking forward to it guys!

I know a lot of people randomize lists 3-4-5 times but really, isn't once good enough? If we trust the mod and random.org, doing it multiple times just seems a waste of time.
Just saying,

Yes, you are absolutely right. But you would be surprised how many people don't believe this and can't comprehend it. I mean after all, the more times we random the list, the "more random" it is, right?

Eventually, someone will request that we random how many times we random the list before we random the list The ultimate random!

Default Ya never know....

At least it's not just me wondering about these things.

It's good people don't see who would have had the best spots in the wasted first randomization.

Going heavy on smileys,
VinnyH
