Yea I get that. So when a break has say 20 hits, picks 13-16 get an extra hit?

I saw in another break they had a vault of cards. Maybe depending on how this break goes we could hold extra hits for following months. Or break up better base and numbered cards into extra slots. Just some random thoughts. I am pumped that we finally got this rolling for our first break. Thanks to host, mad love to you and group members for sticking with it.

I would like to see something on the lines of everyone getting the same amount of picks whether it be putting base together for a pick or keeping extra hits for following breaks when everyone will have the same amount of picks. Either way let's RANDOM for order!!!

I like the snake draft idea, regardless of the # of hits. If we end up with 20 hits, the bottom 4 guys get to pick twice. If you end up in the top 3 or 4, you probably get a pretty good hit with your pick anyway, is another pick of a base lot going to make it that much better?

I like the idea of everyone getting the same amount of hits, but at the same time I agree if you're getting a top 4 pick you're snagging a good card.

so glad we got this going! Stoked for drafting spots!!! When are we randoming our picks .....Nm just saw the post above me! WOOHOO!

IMHO the hit snake draft is the fair way to do things...those with less desirable picks get more cards for their $ and everyone has seemed to be happy with that in the past.

Good luck to all in the random...I guarantee I will be dead last as usual.

I understand it won't make a great difference but option 1 looks like 30 spots... Figured 2 spots of a few base would work ok. Just an option. I'm ok with either way cause I know I won't be in the top 2 spots

Good luck to everyone.

Seems fair - depending on how the "lots" are going to be grouped.... any idea or did I miss something (besides voting - but I didn't have an opinion one way or another)

Same goes for me. No rush, but not trying to hoard spots either

The two lots are grouped as follows - All base cards are one slot (extra shpping is usually required) and all numbered cards from each product that are not auto or gu. Sometimes the numbered card lot is a great hit for someone.

I'm hoping people see our results are ask for a backup slot. In which case they would be able to have each of your extra spots next month.

Sounds good, you need to post your mailday from Swag when it comes in. That was crazy, you scored on all the Kaeps. Going to make bank if they win.

I'm excited to see how this whole purchase ends up...there is some mystery to it which I enjoy. Hope he does well...will probably trade a few away, sell a few and there are some PC items for me to keep as well.

If you sold that Blue Auto right away you almost have 1/2 (if not more) of your original price right there. I think you will do just fine.

Lets get this random, I excited to see if I strike out this time

Let's hope so...first time I've made a purchase that large on here. I submitted a request for a random, should happen soon!
