Lightbulb 2012 BDPP 10 Case Team

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE COMMITTING TO THE BREAK


I wanted to do a jumbo case break, but as of right now it looks like it is going to be too difficult to get that going since they look to be rather scarce and expensive. So lets do 10 Hobby cases instead!

This break is a 10 case TEAM DRAFT
. To determine the draft order a mod will random the list of spots available (30) 5 times. That list will determine the draft order. The team that you draft will be the team you get across all 10 cases.

Options for base cards: The reason base cards are dealt with separate is because they are not worth taking to time to sort (as a host). We will vote on what option to pick, but please only sign up if you are ok with both options. In the case of a tie, I will be the tiebreaker.

#1. Sell all 10 cases worth of cards. This will get the group $400-$500. I will subtract shipping and Paypal fees and divide that number by 30 (the number of spots in the break). Each spot will get that about via Paypal "gift" back (roughly $10-$15 per team).

#2 Split up the 10 cases into 30 spots (4 boxes worth) and ship them with each spot. This would be a random 4 boxes worth of cards.

If you are asking why I dont want to sort all those is because 10 cases is over 20k cards if you include the paper base that most of us dont care about anyway. I did a 10 case break of 2011 BDPP this way and it worked out quite well. If this bothers you please do not join the break.

The Prospect Challenge cards will be split evenly among all teams. 4 per box means we will have 480 cards. That is 16 per team.

Cost Breakdown:
(10) cases of 2012 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects ($720 each) = $7200/30 = $240
Shipping and supplies = $15 (shipped via Priority with insurance of the cost per spot)
Paypal Fee’s = ( * .029 + .30) = $7.70
Total = $262.70

Cost for first spot: $263
Additional spots: $250



The draft will start when the checklist is released (assuming it is fully released on the day the product is released). Note that this is a presell product, but since we are so close to the release date that I will be taking payments immediately after we are moved to active. You will have 48 hours to pay from the time that you are notified your payment is due.


If you have any questions, please ask!


ADDITIONAL NOTES:
• Please make you payments promptly so we can get the case ordered (48 hour deadline). I am on the west coast and it takes a week to get here. The sooner you pay, the sooner we pull some monster cards
• Breaks will be done rather late for those of you on the east coast. However the breaks will be recorded so you can watch later if you choose.
• I will do my best to get scans of all the hits posted the same night as the break.
• I, the host, reserve the right to participate in the break
• The break will take place live on Ustream.com and will be recorded if you cannot not make the break time.
• If you hit a card(s) worth $250 or more you will be required to pay additional shipping costs for insurance and/or certified mail.
• Buying/selling/trading of spots in the break can only be made to other members in this break.
• Due to the large number of spots in this break it may take me a few days to get all the cards out in the mail.
• Please Subscribe to this thread.
• Anyone outside the USA will be required to pay upgraded shipping costs (yes you Canadians!).

After thinking about this a bit I think that it would be better to have the same team across all cases and sell the base, or keep the snake draft but just divide all the base cards into 30 equal lots and split them.

Thoughs?

I will get it changed when I can get to a computer. It's a pain to do on an iPad.

OP has been updated to reflect the same team across all 10 cases.

This has been added since it was announced after I submitted this break for testing:

to be perfectly honest, for $250+, I'd be more interested if it was a snake draft across cases or a random on each case or something like that...too much risk about ending up at the end and getting stuck for 10 cases. just my opinion though

If you did a player draft I'm sure this would have no problem based on how fast houdini's 20 caser filled. Although a player draft might be a time constraint for many hosts.

If it were a player draft I'd certainly be interested

I would be up for a player draft if there is interest.

I quite liked the ladder-style draft that you did for 2011 BDPP -- do you think you'd ever give that format a shot again?

Yeah, if there is interest. I'm just not sure there us interest for a large team break of this product right now.

Id be in if we did not have same team across only bc you get one money team and someone could potentially make a fortune selling out of their spot ex cubs

If you guys decide to do a player draft I would be in for some spots. I look at this thread every time I'm on the boards, it's just a little out of my price range.

I just hit a 2012 Bowman Chrome Castellans purple auto in another break. After I sell it ill sign up for this if the format changes. Player draft I'd sign up for right now. I'd also do it if was a split 10 caser where you get to draft a team from the top half (or the better teams) for 5 cases and then draft from the bottom half (less desirable) for the other 5 cases. I've seen it done in other breaks, but not very often.

Well, I was getting ready to submit a player draft then the site went down for maintenance. I will have that break submitted tomorrow. Hopefully it can get approved before the holiday weekend as well because I am sure nobody will have time to get it done after tomorrow.

I'm not interested in any type of draft break.

Please remove me from this break.

Thanks.
