High Roller's Multi-Sport Case Break Club - Style/Product Poll
 
Every Member seemed certain that Five Star baseball would be in it to win it this month.

Let's break it down:

5 Star should be about $100 per participant.

That is $1400 for 5 star and $45 for shipping etc, with $55 left over (this will be used to purchase a box of XXX so the hitless may receive something.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Bowman Chrome - (i know it's not high end, but it has been mentioned)

2 cases should be @ $1500-1550 or so. spots should be about $120ish
---------------------------------------------------------------------
2012 Tier One - (price is $1525 for a full case, i know, inflated, but there are a ton of great pulls)

about $120ish per spot
---------------------------------------------------------------------
2012 TTT - 9 boxer - price is now $1600
---------------------------------------------------------------------


Poll should be multi-choice. Please select one or two products, and a format.

let the games begin

I'd love to do the 2 cases of chrome..... Team random per box would be awesome for us, not so much for you sorting.

2 cases of chrome is fairly easy to sort for me, especially by team.

Let's keep the discussion going for this! we'll come to a conclusion soon enough!

EDIT - i am very glad i made the poll public. there are a couple users voting that are not in the break as of right now. we'll decypher it all when the time comes.

VWBUS1978 10-03-2012 04:03 PM

bumping this one up... can anyone vote to break ties?

EDIT: that's not meant to sway votes one way or another, just making sure we don't end up stalemating here.

Good luck this month - can't believe i will miss the 5 star break :-(

Five Star has been pushed back to mid November. So..Tier One?

Not much left in Tier One........ I say we go with 2 cases of BC..... Love to BGS my autos and hang onto them for a bit...... Plus someone will hit a nice Super !!!! (I hope)

Yeah. We'll probably have to put up a new poll without 5 star. I'm just not big into the piles of base that follows BC around.

We can sell all the paper and chrome base here on the boards..... I have a member I always sell mine to..... Just an idea

Swingman 10-06-2012 02:50 AM

I think we should go with 5 star..looks like a great product this year

Orangejello727 10-06-2012 04:56 PM

5 cases of BC, team random and same teams for all cases

VWBUS1978 10-06-2012 11:06 PM

Looks like five star. We'll have to figure out the break format as 3 are in a tie.

Sucks it got pushed back though. Any opinions?

Orangejello727 10-07-2012 12:20 PM

5 star will drop in price. BC will go up in price.

mcgoo2 10-07-2012 02:04 PM

[QUOTE=Orangejello727;3434748]5 star will drop in price. BC will go up in price.[/QUOTE]

I wouldn't bet on either going up. 2011 was more of an anomaly for BC and five star is already so highly priced. BC does seem to be underordered with a decent checklist this year but it goes against the "high end" aspect of the club.

Id personally prefer to do a high end break of an older product where the price has already settled. Wouldn't five star be a November break anyways?

i'm with you there bud. if we can find an older product that is higher end, we would be good. leave five star for november.

VWBUS1978 10-07-2012 02:40 PM

some food for thought:

hodgepodge of high end boxes (older)

2009 bowman sterling $395/box
2009 topps tribute $375/box
2009 topps unique $90/box
2011 topps finest $115/box
2008 SPx Baseball - case is only $930
2007 UD Legendary Cuts - case is only $1150

we could mix and match obviously, but just some intriguing options.

VWBUS1978 10-08-2012 09:58 PM

Poll closes on the 11th, I will decipher the results and we'll get this moving.

Let me know if you guys have any questions!

Sean1125 10-09-2012 06:19 AM

I haven't participated in any breaks so far... How does this work? Say we did two cases of five star - how is it split, say we did 2 cases of chrome - how is it split?

we will be holding a team random or draft for the break.

if any card comes out for your 2 teams, it is then your card.
if your team gets 0 cards, then you get nothing.

i don't think we're going to five star this month. 5 star was pushed way back to the 14th of november. .

i will host any box break you guys want, so, please feel free to throw some ideas my way. BUT whatever we pick MUST be available on Blowout.

vetspts 10-09-2012 12:56 PM

I would be interested in the Bowman Chrome or the TTT.... format doesn't matter as much to me, but snake usually is interesting.

VWBUS1978 10-15-2012 12:10 PM

guys, i am afraid i can no longer host breaks. It is all explained in the thread linked below.

basically, i am drawing a negative for every group break i have ever hosted since 2011. New Jersey enacted a USE TAX which went into effect in 2011, and it means any and all purchases over $1000 (that originate online or out of state, and untaxed) must be reported to the state and any state taxes that would/should have been paid will become due to the State.

Last year i was in the hole $750, which i just paid up, and it BLOWS.

This year, just on group breaks and not including my eBay purchases, i am up to $650. if i factored into that all of my ebay purchases i am up over $850.

I simply cannot handle this, nor will i force Blowout members and members of the group to take on the additional 7% i would need to break even. On top of that, i will be taxed for my money incoming this year through paypal.

it's a lose-lose for me and my hole is already dug for next year. come april, i have to jump in, and i would rather not dig it any deeper.

anyways, enough with the Sob story, if a member would like to take over as host, please let me know. Thanks in advance for understanding everyone.

I'm really sorry to hear it but I completely understand. I'd hate to have you pay to hold group breaks. I figure a use tax is only going to get more and more prevalent with internet shopping taking over retail stores.
