The Rundown

• So, I’ve used someone else’s idea and changed a little for what I at least believe to be a pretty interesting and fun idea. The Head to Head Group Break Baseball League! There will be 30 slots, 1 slot for each MLB team. There are 8 regular season breaks using the “HHBL” point system, which I’ll show a little bit later. This will determine our playoffs which will lead to our Championship Game. Each break is a random team break and there’s a random done for each break, so you don’t keep the same team throughout the breaks. After the regular season, there’s one playoff round (month 9) featuring the four highest winning records going head to head and then a Championship game with the 2 winners in the 10th month.

Finances
• $10.00 ($1 Per Month) per slot to cover bulk supplies at the beginning of the season
• $4.00 Shipping deposit. (Only actual shipping will be charged/deducted from your shipping.)
The deposit is so cards can be shipped on demand and save you the extra $0.30 PayPal fee.
• $21 per month per slot for cards and PayPal fees a total of $600 per month for product.
• An additional $2 per month per slot goes towards the Championship game.

First Month: $37.38 (including $0.38 extra Paypal fees for first month.)
Month 2-9: $23.00 (Total monthly fee minus shipping when needed.)


HHBL Point System
What the cards are worth in points

Hit Values
• Jersey hit – Single = 1pts
• Patch hit –Double = 2pts
• Auto hit (Includes manufactured patch autos) – Triple = 3pts
• Jersey/Auto – Homerun = 4pts
• Patch/Auto – Grand slam = 5pts

Serial # Values
• Anything over /100, inserts, rookies, parallels - Walk = 1 pt
• Anything between /100 to /51 – Single = 2pts
• Anything between /50 to /26 – Double = 3pts
• Anything between /25 to /11 – Triple = 4pts
• Anything between /10 to /2 – Homerun = 5pts
• 1/1 – Grand slam = 6pts

Values are added too, so if you hit a patch numbered to /99, you would get the 2pts for the patch and the 2pt for the serial numbering.

The Regular Season

• The regular season will last 8 months, month 9 will be playoffs (Everyone will still get a team,) and break 10 will be the Championship Break. The regular season runs strictly on point accumulation against your Head to Head opponent. You get all the cards from your randomized team in the break, (EDIT) Plus the four (4) highest scoring teams for the month gets to submit what products they would like busted for the next month’s break and the rest of the members will vote which wins. There will be a different randomization done for each break. Also, points from different slots won’t be combined, so if you buy 2 slots, they’ll be run as separate slots. (EDIT) The two (2) highest seed after the last regular season month (Month 8) will pick the products for the playoff round with members voting on the winner. The HHBL will need at least a 9 month commitment from participants, so we don’t have people dropping out halfway through if they fall too far behind or something of that nature. At the end of the regular season, the top 4 best records from the regular season will meet in head to head matchups in the playoffs. Which takes us to:

HHBL Playoffs

• In the playoffs, the top 4 records from the regular season will meet in head to head matchups. The #1 vs. #4 and #2 vs. #3. The 4 playoff teams will get to draft their teams for this break with #1 drafting 1st, 2 drafting 2nd and so on. The remaining 28 teams after the draft will be randomized among the remaining 28 participants. So, the playoff round will be a group break for everyone but only the 4 playoff teams have a shot at the championship matchup. The 2 winners from the head to head matchups will go on the HHBL Championship.

HHBL Championship

• By my calculations, there will be $540 (30 X $2 X 9) to spend on product for the championship. The highest seed left after the head to head playoffs round will get to pick the products for the championship break and will get to choose between drafting the AL or NL. The championship break is only between the 2 winners from the playoff round. The winner will be whoever has the most points. Of course, to the victor goes the spoils, which include:

1. All cards they hit in the Championship.
2. Their pick of one card from the loser’s hits

HHBL Tiebreakers
• To break ties to determine playoff teams and seeds (1-4) we will use the following:

1: The highest total points for the eight regular season breaks.
2: Head to Head winning percentage (against team tiebreak is being determined between.)
3: Moderator will random to determine if still tied.

The Product For Break #1:

2008 Razor Letterman Baseball Hobby Box $43.00
2010 Bowman Platinum Baseball Hobby Box $109.95
2011 Bowman Platinum Baseball Hobby Box $111.95
2012 Panini Prizm Baseball Hobby Box $79.95
2012 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball Hobby Box $81.95
2013 Bowman Baseball Jumbo (HTA) Box $152.95

Total $600.75 (I will cover the extra $0.75 for the first break) In the future any left over money will carry over to next break.

Prices has been reduced on a couple of items which should give us a $21 roll over for next month (Approx.)

A few additional things

- Any multi-player card will be random between teams on the card or majority team holder (51% or more) will get the card.

- Cards featuring players in college uniforms (Press Pass, Sage, 2010 and onward Upper Deck) will go to the team the player was drafted by.

- Cards will go to the team that is listed on the card.

- USA Cards Will Be Random Between All Slots And Points Will Be Awarded To Winning Slot.

- All randoms will be done by a mod using random.org (with all list random 3 times.)

- Shipping costs are not factored in to slot cost.

- It is up to you to let me know if you want your cards shipped. If you don't let me know, then I'll assume you want me to hold your cards until the next break. I would also appreciate you letting me know whether you want your base or not.

- Cards will be shipped with-in two mail days upon you requesting them.

- I don't think I want to ship this one to Canada, or anywhere else outside the continental USA. If you are from there and you want to join, PM me and we can discuss Shipping to these regions WILL be more.

- Trades as usual are allowed and points go with the team.

Rules for this Break:

1. If you hit a card worth $250 or more, I will ask you to pay for upgraded shipping - priority mail, signature confirmation, and insurance.

2. If you join this break, you must be willing to pay with-in 48 hours.

3. If you join this break, you must subscribe to this thread. If you join this break and don't pay, or miss the live break because you didn't subscribe, I guess you should have subscribed!

4. The Host DOES have a spot. If this bothers you in any way, please do not join. All breaks are done LIVE and recorded on USTREAM @
Snowboys breaks The URL is: Snowboys Breaks on USTREAM: Blowout and other breaks. Other Sports

5. Once you receive your cards, please post in the thread that your cards were received. If you have any problems receiving your cards, please bring them to my attention!

6. DO NOT SELL SPOTS OUTSIDE THE BREAK!

7. Please don't be rude to anyone!

8. Have fun!

9. (ADDED INFORMATION) After Random Spot #1 will play #30, #2 VS #29, #3 VS #28, and so on.

Let's get this break filled and pull some nice cards!
