Default Caflisch78's 2012 Topps Five Star Football 2 Case Hit Draft!

One of the best Football product of the year. Product looks solid with the best rookie class in years. Don't miss out on your chance to pull monsters from this high end, all on card product! Let's get this party started, release is set for 8 days from today!

36 Total spots (30 memorbilia + autos and 6 base slots of 3 cards each)

Breakdown
2 Cases @$2650 $75.75
shipping/fees/sup $6.50

$82.25 first slot / $80.75 additional

Break Rules

1. This is a Draft break, each participant will draft their cards. Draft order will be determined by the mods randomizing of the spot list using random.org 5 times. At that point the draft will commence, you will have 2 hours to select your card once you are "on the clock" otherwise I will pick for you. Once a selection is made it is your responsibility to post your pick along with pm'ing the user with the next pick. Please subscribe to the thread once moved to active to make this easy on everyone and to make sure you get the card you want!

2. Break will take place live in my ustream channel caflisch78 on USTREAM: . Football once the case arrives. I will notify the thread with at least 48 hours notice. All breaks will be recorded and stored in this location as well as a recap video done on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/caflisch78

3. All cards from this break will be shipped!

4. All spots must be paid within 48 hours of filling and going active. Since this product is a pre-release item I will set a strict payment due date. Please be prepared to pay so others are not forced to wait. After 48 hours backups will be taken. Please pm if you have an issue with payment or negative feedback may be left for you. Sorry!

5. Spots in this break are recommended to be traded/sold with members of this break only. Outside sales are allowed depending on circumstance, however new participant must pay additional shipping fees.

6. Any cards with multiple teams featured on them will be randomized once the break has been completed in my blog room via random.org. Unless one owner owns more then 50% share of said card. Card go to whatever logo is featured on the card, not jersey he is wearing! - not applicable to this break

7. Additional postage may be requested if you live outside of the continental US or International.

8. Any card valued over $250 will require additional funds for insurance and signature confirmation so we both are well protected, as well as your sick cards.

9. Any "big pull" that results in a hit of the month contest win will be evenly shared among those in the entire break (only those who own teams at time of break)

10. The host WILL be a participant in this break.

11. This break will require a lot of work but should result in a great amount of fun, so please be patient and courteous to fellow participants and the host.

This Group Break is now open. Format and slot pricing are posted for review; please do your own due diligence. The host has provided verification for the age requirement. If you are comfortable with the host, format and pricing, you may join the break and reserve your slot(s) by posting in this thread. Please note that once you reserve your slot(s), you commit to pay for your reserved slot(s).

Just a heads up that the price has increased to 1399.95 a case so slots look to be 84 each

the case price was 1300 when I submitted this break over a week ago (4-11). why are we penalized for such a long delay in break approval??

Is this draft going to be snake style?

Also there are 48 total cards in this break and you list 36 slots in this break. How is the draft going to work then?

Hit draft - Names are randomed and the 1st person on the list picks the cards he/she wants. Then it goes to the 2nd person on the list, etc.

Looks like price went down a bit which is good, but not sure break is going to fill in this format. Too many base slots? Product stink? Any suggesions? I'm open to ideas, thx guys

Product definitely doesn't stink. This is probably the best high end football product of the year.

I'm a bit afraid to buy in because for $86.50 is a huge risk to get stuck with a draft pick in the 30 to 36 range (basically getting $25 in base cards unless there is a base Luck or Griffin in there). Of course, on the flip side, you could get a top 10 draft pick. This is the gamble on these types of breaks.

But this risk could be minimized more if the format was 18 draft slots, snake style. That way, even if you're in the last few draft spots you're getting two mid-draft picks. At that point, you should still be able to get two solid cards. Being in the last few draft picks of a snake style draft certainly does not suck as much as being in the last few picks of a non snake style draft. I've been in a few non snake style drafts and seen a guy buy two slots, and get the last two slots in the draft. Needless to say, he was beyond pissed.

Of course, cutting the number of slots in half would double the price. I'm not sure if a lot of people would be willing to buy into the break for double the price.

Just my opinion.

What about if you went to 33 total slots which included 3 base slots of 6 cards (instead of 6 base slots with 3 cards).

With the lowering of case prices, this should only raise the slot price about 4 dollars but it should give you some extra value if you fall to the bottom of the draft.

Just don't change it to a team draft because I will be out if that happens.

Well's Brauns idea certainly doesn't change this break much, the pricing and the slots only very minorly. While the other suggestion would ultimately double the price, but more then likely guarantee you a much nicer selection of cards. This is what happens when you break high end, the risk is magnified but I certainly prefer hit to random in a higher end break. Any more ideas are welcomed as it takes a group to fill a break.

I just can't believe that people would rather get in team breaks for high-end rather than hit breaks.

The hit breaks we had on this stuff the past two years were fantastic and everyone got something, unlike on the team breaks.

Come on people, join this break!
