Default 2013 Products Call Your Team Baseball Club

I am looking for a host and a group of users to break 1 case a month with of all 2013 products.

I am a Royals fan and collector and would like to have the Royals in case breaks of Heritage, Gypsy Queen, A&G, Bowman w Paper and so on thru the year.

Ideally I'd like a group of reasonable guys who can look at checklists and pack odds and assign vaguely fair values per team but that is not a requirement.

I know a few regulars to the group breaking scene and some friends of mine who would want in.

Thoughts? Ideas to make it an easy, consistent, community beneficial monthly breaking group?

HERE WE GO KIDDOS
Let's say call your team 1 minimum with no limit?

1st product to break will be Gypsy Queen 2013 which releases April 3rd 2013

Case is $970 to preorder so $32.33 per spot which will probably play out at $35 for 1 spot $33 for each additional. I think this one will fill no problem.

1 Spots Remaining
1. Arizona Diamondbacks - Whitemach
2. Atlanta Braves - Billbanning
3. Baltimore Orioles - DTRainman
4. Boston Red Sox - Maculay75
5. Chicago Cubs - Boardermartin
6. Chicago White Sox - Iam12fear
7. Cincinnati Reds - OHLDS
8. Cleveland Indians - Bucksbandit
9. Colorado Rockies - Jackal726
10. Detroit Tigers - TheBrett
11. Miami Marlins - TheBrett
12. Houston Astros - Snowboy
13. Kansas City Royals - TheBrett
14. Los Angeles Angels - Caflisch78

15. Los Angeles Dodgers - Spookowl78
16. Milwaukee Brewers - MJLulich
17. Minnesota Twins - Gergs1134
18. New York Mets - Whitemach
19. New York Yankees - VWBus1978
20. Oakland Athletics - Boardermartin
21. Philadelphia Phillies - Mc126345
22. Pittsburgh Pirates - SteelPen2
23. San Diego Padres
24. San Francisco Giants - VWBus1978
25. Seattle Mariners - Billbanning
26. St. Louis Cardinals - Maculay75
27. Tampa Bay Rays - DCN12586
28. Texas Rangers - TxRangersfan
29. Toronto Blue Jays - Whitemach
30. Washington Nationals - Swingman

I'm an Angels fan and could be interested in hosting this. Haven't collected baseball in quite some time but certainly could be a fun thing to get started if we get enough interest of people who want to collect pc teams. Only concern would be that cases are expensive and not all teams would likely have similar interest to be represented, not sure the best way to handle this. Anywho, would require lots of interest as well, just throwing around my 2 cents

Lots of AL love thus far, haha. I just know the Angels prospects suck right now and we don't have any hof'ers in high end products so they usually suck there too. Could be tough sledding in 2013, guess we shall see. Still would like to see more details on how you guys would like this formatted. So far we have interest from

Seattle
KC
LA Angels
Texas

i'd be in for the giants or yankees.

maybe everyone could pick one AL and one NL team... hopefully one of the two would be represented in the products?

I would be down for one team per league, pending prices of course. I also think maybe a tier system for prices. I don't think hardly anyone is gonna be interested in Astros or D'Backs unless they're cheap or a persons home team.

Yea i'm not sure how you handle that either. In a perfect world we would have 30 people who are all chasing pc teams.

Seattle - billbanning
KC - thebrett
LA Angels - caflisch78
Texas - TxRangersfan
Yankees - VWBUS1978

I am in for Cubs in the NL since I collect Dunston Jr, but would prefer 30 owners. We could very easily adjust pricing or buying habits based on how the checklists line up.

Well if we are picking 2 teams per, 15 slots, I assume this will make full case breaks pretty costly. Guess all of that should be decided in writing before people were to commit. I personally don't have an NL team so maybe we just get 15 slots and random the rest? Obviously the more people we can get involved the better.

I kind of like the thought of having 15 spots for 15 pc teams, and then randoming the other 15. On a $1000 case, that would only be $66.66 plus shipping and supplies for two teams. We could do once a month, or once every two months if the price is too high.

This format allows people on tighter budgets to hit teams they want or people like you and I to opt into multiple teams.

I think this will fill, possibly today.

Does anyone have Nordy22's contact info to ask him to host?

I already told you I can host it unless you missed that part. Makes more sense to have someone internal do it anyway, other then I haven't created one of these before so I would prefer to go on concensus rules before we set them in stone.

I think you can't participate in your own 1st break, have you done them here before? I am sorry I missed that, I wasn't trying to be rude.
