Robert (iluvfish),
Follow me on this back-handed compliment.

I'm glad you had the last slot because there are probably just a few guys who wouldn't groan when that happened. You're one of best around here.

That being said, I hope I get the Bird

Vinny
PS: if I do, we'll split it

I think it was done right for that particular break. No problem because it was stated that the slots governed not the box position.

The only thing I would change was during the random.org for the additional card raffle someone with 1 slot should not have the same chance as someone with 10 slots.

Each slot should be one entry.

Also, we really need to stick with the "if there is any extra hits" that when we do rand.org that all the slots are put in (meaning if you have more than 1 slot your name goes in more than once). Cause if you look at the other break now, there are some PO'd people right now because it wasn't done that way. I was one that had the most slots with 6, but it really didn't bother me cause I did really well with the rest of my slots. Just don't want to see this happen again where people are upset afterwards.

By the way, good luck to all....and I really want to see someone hit a Jordan in this break. UD made such a big deal about Jordan signing for this product and I want to see one

I was one that got bumped, and probably came out better off, but didn't really agree with it. Can't make everyone happy all of the time though, unfortunately.
Matt think we need to think about randomizer in the event of an extra.

I believe all 61 slots/names need to be entered and then radomized. Your thoughts?

Yeah think it was bogus the way the radomizer was done. Wish I would not have hit the sack on the earlier side because I would have suggested all 61 slots be radomized last night.

Trust me I'm grumbling (but who wouldn't...miss a huge hit at the end when the first 8 boxes leave you thinking your got a good shot at something......but it was done the way the break was spelled out, so its much more whinning!

Now as for the Bird. I certianly hope that Capt's Random.org is used, or if there was one done last night. All slots need to considered for that pull.

Okay guys, just logging in today and read these posts.

First, the break will be at 8:00 PM Eastern time Friday, (tomorrow), night. I will be home around 7:00, but will need to eat supper first.

Secondly, here's how we are going to do slot shortage/overage/combination of both...

We will follow "box" order. If box 3 only has 5 hits, then the 6th slot holder will wait until there's another box with an extra hit. If there is none, then money will be refunded, (and I'll take a small loss).

If there's an extra hit in any box before there's a box that's short, that hit will be held until there's a box that's short a hit, or until we can randomly give that hit to a participant.

If there's a random drawing, every slot purchased will be entered. 20 people have participated in this break, but those with more slots will have a higher chance of winning any extra cards. I'm hoping for several extra cards! The random drawing will immediately follow the group break.

Please let me know if there are any questions.

Thanks,

Matt

Alright Matt make the first hit a good one. It will be interesting to see if the autos fall in the same slots as FM's case break did.

Good luck fellas.

I just created a new thread stating that this break will be live tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern time, but it has to be approved. See you all in just over an hour!

The Mrs. confirmed and signed for the delivery today. It's waiting for us!

Looks like we are going to have to use this thread for the group break. When we're through, I'll post everyone's hits on the first page for easy viewing.

Box 1 is up, and I'm breaking right now. Here's who should be paying attention to this first box! I see a 1/1 already!!! Good luck everyone!

Box 1:

1 Vintage Collector - Base Slot

2 willcvincent
3 KenTyler
4 Vintage Collector
