5/2/13 - Cards will be shipped out tomorrow 100%.
Almost done packaging them. Sorry it's been another really long week. This is my first time on my computer since Sunday night and that was strictly for homework. Thank you for understanding or at least trying to understand. By the way congrats to everyone who got a hit. (esp Cavs and Warriors).

4/25/13 - BlogTv is up! I will start at 9:30 Pacific time sharp! H-Box G-Breaks! on USTREAM: I host group baseball, football, and basketball card breaks!. Baseball
4/24/13 - UPS came today! Weird part is, they delivered two boxes. The 1st box is what appears to be the "lost" box. I don't know if BO usually re-uses boxes or not, but the 2nd box has a huge sticker on the side saying "2012-13 Prominence Football. 8 cards per pack. 15 boxes per case." Either we have an extra 4 boxes OR we have the original 4 boxes + Danny sending the wrong package for a replacement.
Either way, break is still Friday at 6pm Pacific time.
I will send Danny a message about this to just clarify.
4/22/13 - UPS Tracking says our last 4 boxes will come on Wednesday. I have a midterm on Thursday so I will be able to break most likely Friday (assuming UPS doesn't screw up again). All the hits so far have been sleeved and toploaded while the rest of the cards are in team bags. If everything goes according to plan, everything should be shipped out on Monday. By the way, I have the Bulls in this break and if anyone wants the bulls base cards let me know!
4/19/13 - Danny told me that he wasn't able to find the lost package so he has sent another package! Assuming that UPS doesn't lose it again, the estimated break date for this is most likely next Friday or next Saturday.

4/18/13 - Alrighty! By popular demand. We can do tonight then! I will get everything situated and get the room going at 7pm Pacific time. Btw, I emailed Danny. He said that he will sort things out with UPS. If worse comes to worst, he will send a replacement.
I have 7 out of the 11:
4/18/13 - Hey all, school has been catching up on me these last few days with midterms right around the corner. I haven't been able to check BO. I'm not scamming you guys. Just because I haven't been on for a few days and UPS screwing us doesn't mean I'm a scammer. I just took a look at the UPS tracking. It says "lost package"..wtf???? I'm giving UPS a call after class today when I get home. Crossing my fingers on this. I apologize for the inconvenience of this break. I hope you guys understand that I am in no control of how UPS handles the packages. Neither I, nor my 7 other housemates have received anything from UPS yet. I even taped a sign outside my door saying "UPS please give packages to the leasing office if nobody if home" (yeah I actually did mess up on the sign and said if twice since I was in a rush to catch the bus, but they get the message LOL)
If anything, remember I still do have some of the boxes already. We are just waiting on the last of the boxes. If you guys want, I could break the ones we already have as we see what's up with the last of it. lmk what you guys think. They've just been sitting in my closet this whole time as we waited for the last of it. I'll post a video when I get home tonight after class. You guys can tell me what you want to do.
4/13/13 - SCUMBAG UPS. I just got home and was out all day yesterday. UPS DID NOT deliver the package. The tracking says "in transit." The last known update they input was that the shipping address has been fixed. I called UPS today again to see what happened and told the representative about the conversation I had last time I called. All they could say was wait and if nothing changes, call back on Monday and they will let the package center know. I am so sorry for this. I don't know what is going on with UPS -.- but I am trying my best! NEW estimated break date - Tuesday 4/16 or Thursday 4/18 depending on when UPS decides to come through...The UPS tracking number if you want to see for yourself. - 1Z82RW333973393111
4/11/13 - I called UPS today and they said that there was a note on the box, but nobody actually took care of the address change. The nice lady on the phone was able to get that fixed right away and UPS will be delivering it tomorrow! Break Date and Time are still the same! Saturday, 4/13 @ 6pm Pacific Time. 1 quick change. I have joined the social collective and made a Ustream since BlogTv no longer exists haha. My username is still the same - Egforevervlad
4/10/13 - UPS Tracking has been the same since Monday. The current status is "Shipper has requested a delivery address change."
4/8/13 - BO has responded to my email and will call UPS to fix the shipping address.
4/6/13 - I just called UPS to try to get the shipping address fixed and the UPS customer service representative confirmed that the apartment number was missing on the package. I guess it doesn't help that I also live in a complex with over 100 apartments LOL. They couldn't even leave a sticky on the door . Also, BO placed a restriction on the shipping address of the box so only they could change it . The package is currently in West Sacramento, CA, while I am in Davis, CA. I can't pick it up. We will have to wait for BO to add my apartment number on the address since I don't have the power to do so.
Break date is Saturday, 4/13, at 6 pm Pacific Time.
How are they going to forget to put my apartment number on the shipping address..and then restrict me from correcting that mistake by adding it on through UPS..
4/5/13 - I'll try calling UPS tomorrow and see if they can still deliver it the same day. If they can come through, we can keep the original break date and go live tomorrow. Once I know, I will post another update.
4/5/13 - Break date has changed to next Saturday, 4/13. The package was supposed to be delivered today, but I did not receive it. I checked the UPS tracking and it says that they could not find the proper mailing address and that the apartment number was missing. I gave BO a good address so I don't know what went wrong. I emailed BO again telling them the same exact address as last time I had this corrected. Sorry for the inconvenience.
4/5/13 - Break date and time is 90% confirmed. Saturday, 4/6/13, at 6 pm Pacific Time. The order is being delivered today, but it requires a signature. I will be in class all day and the estimated delivery time is "by the end of the day." If I knew exactly when UPS would arrive, I would comeback for a brief moment to get the package, but unfortunately I don't. Hopefully one of my housemates will be home to sign for it. Another update will be posted tonight on how this goes.
4/3/13 - BO has corrected the shipping address!
4/2/13 - BO has shipped the boxes to the wrong address. I got a notification from UPS today saying that they are delivering the boxes to my home address by Friday, April 5th when I requested them to be delivered to my alternative address at school. I have messaged BO and hopefully they can correct this.
4/1/13 - Order has been placed. The break date is TBD once I receive the order. An estimated date is Saturday, 4/6 @ 6 pm Pacific Time. Date & time are subject to change.
3/30/13 - Pete Schweddy has replaced Elkyjnr. All spots have been filled and paid for. Teams have been randomized by moderator. Break date to be determined once I get the invoice from the administrator.

3/26/13 - Break is now "Active." Please send payments to my PayPal account - firstname.lastname@example.org
3/26/13 - Signature Series is most likely not going to be restocked. It will be replaced in this break with another box of 2012/13 Contenders.
3/25/13 - Signature Series is currently out of stock. I asked the Admin if and when they'll be restocking. If it isn't going to be restocked anytime soon, an alternative I would suggest is to replace it with another box of 12/13 Contenders that also has 5 Hits and is almost the same price. If you disagree with this alternative, please let me know! No response is equivalent to being okay with the switch (if it occurs). Admin will move this thread to "Active" once we work out the box of Signature Series.
3/24/13 - All 30 spots in the break are filled. We are ready to proceed to stage 2! Backup spots are still available until this thread is moved to stage 2.
I was thinking about hosting a large variety of basketball products.
It contains almost every 2012/2013 basketball product! (11 Boxes total)
40 Hits + #ed + 2 Prizms + Base
Product Breakdown (1 box each)
Signature Series (Out of stock. Replaced with an additional Contenders)
Rules & General Info. Summary
- Standard, typical rules.
- All 30 NBA teams are randomized.
- The moderator will use random.org and randomize a list of the teams and participants 3 times each and match up the two lists.
- Get every card (including base) from your team. (exception to Kobe packs)
- Since Kobe Packs are guaranteed, each pack will be randomized to go to a participant instead of the Lakers automatically.
- Moderator will randomize the list of participants 3 times. The 9 names at the top of the list will get a Kobe pack. #1 to the 1st Panini product & so on.
- Boxes will be opened in order of most packs & cheapest to least packs and priciest.
- If, for whatever reason, no NBA team is stated on the card, it goes to the team that the player is currently on.
- Teams are based on what the card states and not the jersey the player is wearing.
- Multi-player cards are randomized (unless one person owns a majority of teams on the card).
- I typically ship cards out within 3-5 days after the break is conducted.
- International collectors welcomed, but shipping may or may not cost extra depending on the postage.
- Shipping insurance is solely up to the participant, but suggested for cards valued at $100 or more.
- Please subscribe to this thread.
- Updates will be posted on this thread in the comment section and at the top of this primary post.
*Note* - I have a spot in this break and paying my fair share of the pie! If I get a hit and it's a player that I don't really collect, I will give it away and randomize it amongst those who are hitless!
Date: TBD, aim for within a week after spots are all filled and payed for
Time: Live @ 6pm Pacific Time (The room is usually open 30 minutes prior to the start of break.) Time is subject to change.

Oh, pricing varies. When I made this post originally, those were the numbers. Thanks for the edit! My bad guys! Still new to hosting on Blowout. I usually do this on my own website.
