After doing alot of cheaper Group Breaks (these things are addictive), I have decided to cash in all my chips and spend a little more.

please help..........never done a group break.........
I understand the 48 slots for the GU or auto's (6 per box multiply by 8 box case) but the base and inserts/parallel making up 3 of the 51 slots? If you hit the base or insert slot of the group break what and how many do you receive? Thanks.

The insert/parallel slot will get 4 boxes worth of them. They are 6 per box, so each of those 2 slots will get 24 cards /199 or less. So in the end, these 3 slots may turn out to be very good if we can hit some low numbered parallels and/or complete the base set.

Sometimes base sets are even more valuable than some of the hits...I remember I was one of the person that got a base set from Patrick's 09 Topps Finest Baseball GB. At first I was really bummed out...but I sold the base set for $45 which paid for both of my slots from that break!

Deadline is going to be 11/1. That gives me a couple days to play with if we need to find an emergency slot pickup.
