Default Boxbreakers High End Monthly Break - November

Hello all, this is our monthly Boxbreakers High End #2 monthly group break. We have been running these group breaks for almost 6 years now and have been looking for a new site to host our #2 breaks and figured what better place than where we buy all our products! This High End #2 as well as our monthly Hobby #2 group breaks are "keeper" groups meaning you get to retain your same team for as long as you choose to continue.

While we are new here, we have plenty of references for those in doubt. We have maintained our High End and Hobby #1 group breaks over on another site and have been awarded as having the best Box Breaks for the last 2 years in a row. We were also featured by the New York Times as being one of the innovators of the group break phenomenon. We have over 1700 group break videos on Youtube under my user ID Crpalmi. With the switch over to the Blowout forums I have asked all our current participants to register here so hopefully they will join some of the other breaks on the site but those folks (most were here already) get us started and those team ownerships are noted below but all teams in bold are available on a first come first serve basis. If the current owner fails to register they will be removed from the break prior to the break moving to the active breaks area. We send out every card pulled and if we hit a multi-player hit it is awarded to the participant that owns the most teams on the card. If a tie it goes to the team of the player on top (if vertical) on the left (if horizontal), or on the front (if front and back).

This break is called our High End FB #2 group break. We do this one towards the end of each month and it usually includes a couple cases of Higher End products. Because we are new here I am starting this product list off small as it's budgeted for just 22 teams filled and another 9 teams drafted. Should we fill more teams than that we will add products to the list. I should explain our secondary draft format. We try to fill as many teams as we can but when the payment deadline arrives we then put all the unclaimed teams into a draft pool. If you are a member of the break you can purchase an optional draft slot at a discounted price. We then have a mod randomize the draft slots and hold a draft where you pick which remaining team you would like to take when it's your turn. We budget for one less draft slot as teams we have so the person that draws the final pick of the draft will get the remaining 2 unclaimed teams! Drafted teams are just like your claimed teams in that you get every card pulled from your team but at less than half the cost of the original slot. The funds generated from those sold draft slots are all put in the budget so we can keep all costs as low as possible. Here are the details of the November High End #2 FB Group Break (keeping in mind the product list can change slightly based on our final number of participants);

Product List (Based on 22 Teams filled + 9 drafted)
2012 Prominence Case (15 Boxes)
2011 Gold Standard Case (10 Boxes)
2010 Plates & Patches (7 Boxes)

Cost per Draft Slot: $45 (Participants only)


Cost Breakdown:

Total Product Cost: $2731

Costs per full $115 slot:

Shipping: $2.00

Thanks, you're in! As a Browns fan you may be subjected to a snide comment or two but hopefully the cards you get will make up for that! Nothing personal, just my job as a Browns guy.

I have only been with this group since this past March, but Chris has pulled me some very rare pc cards. Welcome to the group and enjoy it.

I've done 2 different stints with Chris' group breaks in the Hobby 1 and Hobby 2 breaks and he does a superb job. He gets my stamp of approval for whatever that's worth. If you have the funds to join his break(s) I would highly recommend it.

Remember this break is budgeted for 22 teams which we have already reached. Anymore than that and we can add product to the list! Still some unbelievable teams with the Eagles (where are my Nick Foles collectors), Jags (Gabbert and Blackmon), Titans (Kendall Wright), as well as the Vikings, Raiders, Chargers, and lots of other nice options!!
