i agree .. plus these rules are posted for you to read prior to you joining.. anyone joining is in agreement with this rule..

2012 Contenders isn't a bad idea. Of course, I'll be happy with anything football.

I would like to see boxes of different products and different years.

Higher end of course with little base to mess with.

It is confirmed guys, we won the $1000 gift card. I'm going to go through BO tonight and come up with a bunch of different options for us to break. Please feel free to make any suggestions whether it be a case or single box. I want to get a nice mix of quality and quantity since we did pretty poorly on the certified case.

And to reiterate how the draft is going to work...

Each member that joined the break including myself will get 1 spot. If you purchased 2 or 3 slots in the break you still only get one spot for the gift card draft. Our draft list will be in alphabetical order before the random. We will then proceed to do a snake hit draft. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

Will you take draft lists, since I won't be able to follow a hit draft with my working hours?

I like the idea of a mix of cards, looking forward to the options you come up with! (Just an FYI, Crown has always been good to me, but it isn't everyone's cup of tea.)

I prefer draft lists, it makes it go by 100x quicker.

How about something High end like 2011 or 2012 Five star? Gold standard is nice too.

I like the idea of a mix of product, could we stay in the years 2011/2012. I hate expired redemptions.

I would be down to pay a few extra $$ on top of the gift card for a super nice break. Exquisite, NT, etc....

If we want to ensure that there would be enough hits for everyone (28 spots) at least once over, a couple high-end boxes or a high-end case might not be the best.

A 2012 Contenders Case would come out to an extra $28 or so per member for product cost, shipping and supplies even after the gift card. Would be 60 autos though, a nice haul.

A couple options that might be good if people don't want to chip in that much extra:

1) 2012 Topps Magic 12 Box Case -$999.95 - 36 autos and a chance at relics. (Release 2/8)

2) 2012 Panini Totally Certified 12 Box Case - $1299.95 - 72 hits. (Release 2/27)

Okay... Here is what I came up with....

First off, I don't think we should wait for item that aren't released yet. I don't want to have this break lingering for a few weeks. Secondly, I took out the option of a one or two box high end break to ensure that everyone gets a hit.

Option #1 - SB Themed
2011 Timeless Treasures Football 20 Box Case - $825
2008 Leaf Limited Box - $82
2012 Crown Royale Football Box - $95

Option #2 - Through the Years (would cost $1 per person)
2012 Crown Royale Box - $95
2012 Topps Chrome Box - $135
2011 Crown Royale Box - $69
2011 Timeless Treasures Box - $43
2008 National Treasures Box - $600
2007 Contenders Box - $84

Option 3 - 2012 Hellzzz YEah!
2012 Topps Chrome Box - $135
2012 Crown Royale Box (x2) - $190
2012 Leaf Autographed Jersey Edition - $135
2012 Leaf Best of Football - $205
2012 Press Pass SportsTown - $60
2012 Topps Strata Box - $98
2012 Topps Inception Box - $100
2012 Rookie & Stars Box - $80

Option #1 will get everyone multiple hits. Options #2 and #3 will get everyone 1 hit although some of those "hits" will be lots of numbered cards (for example - an entire box of crown royale base and inserts, Inception #'d parallels, Topps Chrome refractors, a base card from NT). The only option with redemption issues is #2 with 2008 NT which could be a terrible if we hit something huge from that.

My personal vote is for #1. The value is so amazing in the timeless treasures case, plus we still get to open two more nice boxes.

Lets hear some opinions...

-James

I'm liking #1 and #3, leaning more towards #1.

I like the idea of many different boxes so I like option #2 but replacing the $600 NT with maybe a box of 2011 triple threads, panini black, inception and prizm.
