Talking 2012 Topps Five Star Baseball ~ Random Hit Break

2012 Topps Five Star Baseball
~ Random Hit Break ~

Break on 11/14 at 6:30pm ET on BlogTV here: http://www.blogtv.com/People/DizzyDSki


Here's a pretty standard break that hopefully fill pretty quickly. Instead of a random draft list where a lot of the excitement goes "POOF" after the random, or having to wait a while for everyone to submit their pick selection, here's a chance to get in on a break where every hit should be very solid and the break is very straightforward.

This is a pre-sell product that isn't due out until Halloween. With that said, I still am asking for payment within 2-3 days after we fill. I want to secure the pre-sell with Blowout and I don't want to chase down people next month when I have the product in hand and we're waiting on payments to come in (as an example). I've been on Blowout threads since 2007 and am nearing 8,000 positive feedback on eBay; I will also be paying in full on the pre-sell vs. paying only the deposit and then the balance near release, so Blowout will have the funds during this time.

Every Pack Delivers (not sure if this is the order the hits come in from Topps)
- 1 Autograph (Active Player)
- 1 Autograph (Retired Player)
- 1 Autographed Relic
- 1 Autographed Book or Autograph
- 1 Jumbo Jersey Relic, Patch, Bat Plate or Bat Knob

Granted, this is a little "medium risk, higher cost, higher reward," but with just 15 spots and a good shot of hitting something amazing like a bat knob, book card, Ruth cut auto, etc., I think it's definitely worth a shot!

So with three boxes, there will be 15 hits total. We can assume that the cards will come out in the order listed above, however, for this break, the first card in the top box will be hit #1, second card hit #2, all the way down to the bottom box's fifth card being the 15th hit.

Box 1, Card 1
Box 1, Card 2
.
.
.
Box 3, Card 5

Case Price: $1395 / 15 Slots = $93 per slot
+ Top-Loader or Lucite Case = $0.40 per slot
+ Shipping / Insurance / Bubble Mailer = $2.50 per slot
(factoring in $100 insurance or more on at least 30-50% of the slots)
+ PayPal (95.90 x .029) + .30 = $3.08 per slot
TOTAL SLOT COST = $98.98

$99 slot ~ $97 each additional

ADDITIONAL DETAILS:
- Once everyone has paid, I will ask a mod to randomize the signup list FIVE times to determine the random hit order.
- Any extra cards will be randomed among everyone.
- We shouldn't be short a card, but if we are, I'll donate a "consolation hit" to the last slot (again, per the sell sheet, this shouldn't happen)
- Slot holders have the rights to any entries/prizes for "Blowout's Best Pulls" monthly prizes.
- Cards will be mailed out within 24 hours.

Thanks for joining metsy! Payment is not due now, but will be soon after we fill which I hope to be in the next day or two. I will send out a message to everyone with payment information after we fill the break and the break is moved to active status. Thanks!
