June - Bowman Inception Hobby - $685 or $22.83+

July - A&G Hobby - $1010 or $33.67+
August - Topps Chrome Hobby - $769.95 or $25.66+

Museum Collection comes out in April and I would love to explore that or any other cases the groups wants to try.

Bowman Chrome and Bowman Draft with Chrome are my top 2 products so as soon as they are announced I will add them.
I would also like to see Museum and Tier One. I would rather not due Topps Series 2 but that's just my opinion. Maybe double up on inception instead that month?

My preference is to stay away from the high end products (I am specifically looking at Museum, Tribute, TTT). The price for keeping the Twins would be too great to stay involved, especially if greater than $40-50 per break. I believe the same could be said for quite a few teams.

The goal of this group was to get all the cards that aren't worth buying on eBay or COMC without having to beg people to PWE you the guys from your team for $1. I personally will join just about any break where I am guaranteed the Royals so put me down for the high end stuff when it comes out. I think for this group the fun will be in getting all the cards from the mainstream products and having a start for a break for when that higher end stuff comes up.

One thing I have noticed on these boards is that they make it too difficult to accomplish something easy like getting an f-load of cards from your favorite team.

If all prices are the same and I was the first to reply I would have been a die-hard Yankees, Cardinals, Dodgers, and Angels fan. I love the idea of getting only your pc team, however you'll probably need different pricing for different teams for this to fill and for people to stay in it after the Astros fan pulls 4 cards in the first break.

Have you tried putting up a thread in the Baseball Hobby Talk section? We might be able to fill by advertising on there.

Nope, anyone able to do that? I have a basketball tournament today.

Also, anyone want to try to tackle adjusted costs? If not ill try tonight.

Prefer someone else does because my old ass is gonna be exhausted from chasing 20 year old point guards all over the place today.

I'm going to a birthday party, then I have my weekly group break later this evening. I'm sure today is a busy day for most people but even though I plan to host, I need some assistance with price adjusting since i'm really not all that familiar with current prospects in baseball other then the few big ones.

Mets, Blue Jays and White Sox should definitely fill.

We could raise the slot price each month and do a random hit draft for the unsold teams following the break? Could add something to the process?

Seems like a lot of work so we should do variable prices

I was part of a Breaking Group where they set a deadline for teams and lets say if 25 teams were sold, then the remaining 5 were done silent auction type. Lets say if the 5 extra teams sold for $20 a piece, then what we could do is take the case price, divide by 25, and then subtract the amount from the teams auctioned. Does that make sense?

OP updated, down to the last 6.

Pretty funny that the White Sox can't sell.

Also, don't the Astros have Correa? He should be in some product this year making dibs on the Stros pretty enticing I would think.

If no one has taken the White Sox, I will. I am in for whatever cases are broken, high end, low end, whatever.

OP updated

Product comes out in a few weeks. My suggestion is that Deadline be Monday March 25th. Any unsold teams should result in every other spot going up slightly in price. We will then random all paid spots to create a hit draft. This means that any months with unsold teams can cause minimal financial damage to the group and add some fun in case cool stuff hits.

We'll need to determine what qualifies as a hit and make sure our breaker is ok with this idea

For GQ we could do one for each auto or relic and the one for all the SP's, one for all the inserts, one for all the minis, and one for all the numbered cards. Maybe throw a spot in for the base. Have that for each unsold team and everyone would probably get something in the draft.

OP updated, 3 spots remain. As of now, if those 3 do not sell we would have to move the slot price up a few bucks and roll with that hit draft.

I think this should work out well.

OP Updated. I have decided to take the Marlins with all of their talent in the minors (Fernandez, Yelich, Marisnick, Ozuna etc)

If a Marlins fan ever surfaces I will happily give dibs on them up because that is the whole point of this group.

Now if someone would just take the terrible Padres we would be full.
