Boxbreakers January Monthly FB Hobby Group Break
Hello all, this is our monthly Boxbreakers Hobby #2 monthly football group break. We have been running these group breaks for over 5 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 Hobby #2 as well as our monthly High End #2 group breaks are "keeper" groups meaning you get to retain your same team for as long as you choose to continue. We held our first Monthly break here in November and after taking December off we are back at it again to start the new year!

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 1800 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 Hobby FB #2 group break. We do this one towards the end of each month and it usually includes a range of hobby products from the last 2-3 years and always includes at least 1 high end product. Because we are new here I am starting this product list off small as it's budgeted for just 20 teams filled and another 11 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 Hobby #2 FB Group Break (keeping in mind the product list can change slightly based on our final number of participants);

Looking for a Ravens, Saints, or Titans collector to join us!

crpalmi 01-18-2013 08:27 AM

Lots of great opportunities for just $50 a shot. These are some of the hits we've pulled from available teams in our Hobby group in just the last several months;











crpalmi 01-21-2013 09:51 AM

crpalmi 01-23-2013 11:52 AM

Who's up for a Julio Jones Exquisite RC Auto patch... Falcons are available!!

dvashun 01-24-2013 08:31 AM

Hi Chris,

I will take two draft slots.

crpalmi 01-24-2013 03:01 PM

I've heard from everyone except Steelpen2 and Texans81. As soon as I hear from them on their status we can start the draft of unclaimed teams as I'd like to break Sunday!

Just in case.... as a back up plan.... anyone interested in the Steelers or Texans??

McFly 01-24-2013 05:48 PM

Ill pay for the titans slot if its still available

crpalmi 01-24-2013 08:36 PM

[QUOTE=McFly;4101009]Ill pay for the titans slot if its still available[/QUOTE]

Welcome to the group! PM sent.

crpalmi 01-25-2013 07:39 PM

Had to open up the Steelers and Texans as I could not reach those owners. We will start the draft later tonight so if you want to grab either one you only have a couple hours. Cardsick45 has stepped up to take the remaining draft slots but if anyone is interested in one he's willing to share!

crpalmi 01-26-2013 09:41 PM

Break schedule is set for tomorrow night (all times CT);

Hobby Break: 6pm
High End Break: 8:45pm

Hope you can make it!

Mrpwe1 01-27-2013 09:41 AM
