On a side note, I have a great idea for a Benchwarmers insert....probably not appropriate here though.

I'd be open to that! If we did, we'd be over halfway full.

Is everyone OK with dropping down to 5 cases to fill this up?

Ok, I have adjusted the OP to 5 cases!

New slot pricing is $61.25 for the first slot, $60 after!

Please note that a lot of spots you requested have been moved since there are only 90 spots available.

Default Stalled...

I would like to know if there's a cut off point for this break. My break money is burning a hole in my pocket. I like this idea but also like others if this doesn't work out.

Thanks,
VinnyH

I was going to give it the weekend to see how many more spots get sold. I think this could be an amazing break, so I didn't want to give up on it.

I was brainstorming with VinnyH and we had an idea. I'm going to put it out there to see what you guys think.

How would you all feel about condensing the base cards to 1 lot per case?

This means instead of each base card being a single draft pick, you can draft the base cards for Case 1, 2, etc. This would eliminate 10 spots from the break, making us that much closer to filling. It would also add $8 to the current slot price.

What say the members?

I would be against this. Some of the base cards are better than the autos.

I've been thinking that I wouldn't mind a cheap auto compared to a regular base. I know some base are numbered but I'm not sure how they fall per case.
Overall I like the gamble to be in the top 45 spots. The dropoff after that, I write off as my gamble.
I would just like see if we can inspire people to fill this compared to having it fade away. A handful of members will be getting a great opportunity at the top hits in 5 Star.

IMHO,
VinnyH

I completely understand that. Now, what if it is the only way this would fill?

I like the idea. Either way, the bulk of us are going to get screwed (hence the gamble). I have a feeling I am going to be one of the ones that get less than their buy in, but I'm ok with that. Count me in for the increased price.
