We are still looking for our 15th and final member for next month, so if you know anyone that may have an interest, have them post.

As of right now, we still need product input for November. The first suggestion was 2011 BDPP, someone else suggested 2012 BDPP and 2009 Unique. I am voting for 2012 BDPP alone (price per member would be around $58), but if you want to add another product(s) in the $300 total cost range, I'll approve almost anything.

PS - If we do 2012 BDPP, there are no USA cards, since Topps lost the rights to produce them.

Don't forget to post ASAP once you receive your cards!
Man, thanks for shipping so quick!

2012 BDPP would be fine by me!

BDPP is like the worst product for me from a team break perspective lol. Just not a fan of waiting a few years to see if someone actually turns out well. It's hard enough for me to hold cards during the off season to see how they do the next year :P. The only player I actually care about in BDPP this year is Kevin Plawecki (Purdue grad), and I'm not sure if he'll be on the checklists or what team he'll be on.

I know it's going to the next big thing next month though, and a lot of people love it, so I'm fine with it being opened. It'd be nice to throw in something else with it though, something that's more veteran based. Maybe try and hit some of those teams that got shafted with having no autos in bowman chrome. (Not thinking about me - I did pretty well this month with vet color and some hits in the update, but I think there were some who did not so well.)

Unique would be awesome, but maybe better the following month with another cheaper case. Could do something like 3-5 boxes of '12 Topps Chrome, Archives, or Mini.

(On a random note, damn those 2012 Olympics hobby boxes have gone down. I never got an auto from 10 of those blasters, I am so tempted to pick up a few hobby boxes.)

If everyone wants to do 2012 BDPP then I wll be fine. I don't do much on the prospect side so if we could add a few boxes or cheap case of the something else that would be great.

As for the 15th member, Clippins posted before you uploaded the images about joining so he should have first crack at it.

I would love a case of 2012 BDPP. Then if we were going to add boxes to it, I like the suggestion of 2012 Topps Chrome being added.

Also, are the golden giveaway codes being mailed if we haven't received a PM about them yet?

NHS - I was going to ask you not to ship my base but its too late
Also i am in for whatever the board wants, but like others have said, something for everyone would be ideal.

What about a 1989 Topps Box

I already contacted him and he is unable to join after-all.

No, I just haven't PM'd them yet, sorry. Working to get the 5 cases for other break sorted first. Should PM by Sunday afternoon - hope that's ok. I also have to PM the codes for the Presidential Predictors - that will happen at the same time as the GG codes.

I'd go with 89(I think) Fleer to get the "Fvck Face" Billy Ripken!

In all seriousness, it sounds like the general concensus is BDPP and something else. I personally like the Topps Chrome idea, so let's go with that. I'm thinking 1 case of BDPP, and 3 boxes of Topps chrome. Total cost should be around $74 per member.

Once all of you have received your cards, I'll post the new break in the testing waters section.

That's fine. Where do you put in the Presidential Predictor codes at?

I'm fairly certain it's on redeem.topps.com.

UPDATE: Yep, I just tried one that I pulled from a jumbo box, and that's where you enter them. http://redeem.topps.com

That'll teach you to be nice to strangers :P

In all seriousness, I didn't even see what went on in that original thread, but looking back now you're right. I say if you still want that Phillies slot you should take it. That other person seemed to have a really poor attitude anyway, so I'm glad they bailed as this should be a fun group.

We're still waiting on one more member, and confirmation from everyone for November, but I haven't had any cancel, so we should be good! The products we've been discussing are 1 case of 2012 BDPP plus 3 boxes of 2012 Topps Chrome. Does that work for everyone?

Full checklist isn't out yet, but as I understand it, most 1st rounders are signing!

Got my cards today! There were a lot more Astros cards from the chrome than I was expecting in there, so that was a nice surprise. Hopefully some of them turn out ok

Very pleased with this month and looking forward to next month's breaks.
