I may have overlooked it, but please state where the base cards and parallels will go. Also, if you get a break on case price feel free to update the slot price in the first post. Thanks!

You didn't overlook anything Tony. I am going to let the participants decide on the base. We can add 1 slot for base which will lower the slot price by $2 per slot. If nobody wants to spend that kind of money per slot to receive base I will randomize the base between all members. I would be 5 base per slot if I am correct in there being 5 base per pack. They will be randomized in the order they were pulled.

You know, if you made the base from the case one slot and the base parallels from the case another slot (38 slots total) those could actually be decent slots to get.

If that's what everyone wants to do it would be $80 per slot before a discount if we get one.

I agree with this 100%

or atleast have all the base and parallels as 1 slot.

What is the slot price going to be?

With 1 base slot it would be $82

With 1 base and 1 parallel slot it would be $80

This is before discounts if we get one.

If I had to vote I would vote for the 1 base/parallel slot for the whole case, much like the TTT Football group break. That is my vote anyway

Personally, I wouldnt want to waste $80+ on a slot to get base cards. I would probably be in for a few slots, but, not if there is a chance that one, or two of them would be base cards. Just my .02 cents.

You do realize that all of the base/parallel cards from an 18 box case would be nearly a guaranteed money maker at $80 - $85, right? I am almost positive that someone would be willing to trade their hit slot with you if you got the base slot (assuming there is a base slot).

If it is one slot, that is actually a pretty decent slot to get. Not sure if you could get a complete set or not, but pretty darn close from a whole case.

The base go for no less than $1 ea. and obviously it's hard to say on the parrel's. The thing is there is no way that getting this slot is worse than getting a $3 rising star auto.

180 cards in 1 base/parallel slot.

Per pack:
- 2 Base // Cards, #'d to 525 or less x 36 packs=72
- 3 Base Cards #'d x 36 packs=108

I understand - I don't really collect sets though, and wouldn't want to bother to sell of 50+ singles or whatever - I would rather take my shot at hitting a nice auto or patch card.

I would say make it one base/paralell slot. To cut it between two slots doesn't move the slot price enough to make it worth it.

I will trade you my hit slot for the base slot if you get it. So you can't lose

i was hoping someone would GB this!!

the 1/1 and triple auto case-hits apply only to 18 box cases, right?

i'd be in for two slots but only if it's an 18 box case break.

Bryce I am only getting in if you are profiting $20-30 per slot. If not that is unacceptable.
