Karl where do you bid for the Box toppers? And why wouldn't they just be a random slot?

OK, BIG NEWS!!! EVERY SLOT IN THE BREAK IS GOING TO BE A HIT!!!

NO BASE ROOKIE SLOTS!!! - One of my site sponsors is covering the cost of all of them to make sure that the odds don't fall against anyone and they end up with only base cards!!! SWEET!!!

The box topper auctions will be up soon and any windfall (LOL!) will go towards an exclusive break for the Box Loader slot winners (TBD...but we'll make it FUN!!!)...if there's nothing big left, no big deal.

***ALSO, BIG thanks to Iluvfish2 for this info -"Just a heads up on your blowout case break for sterling. The box toppers are not encased...topps opted not to do this" - "here is my case break from 07 bowman Sterling if anyone is interested in what case results look like.

http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/football-box-breaks/5755-full-8-box-case-bowman-sterling.html"

I'm buying you a slot for the info my friend!

RUNNING FREE SLOT COUNT -

1 x Illuvfish2
1 x FTopps
1 x Rockholt

So again, NO BASE SLOTS AT ALL IN THIS BREAK!!! Only 144 slots total now!!!

Karl

I'll do 4 slots. From the looks of it 07's rookie class is looking better than the projected 08 rookie class. What do I know, I'm a Chiefs fan.

Default Karl,

All the previous Bowman Sterling breaks have had the toppers in as random slots. The gamblers here, myself included, like taking that chance. I got a nice one in your baseball break.

It may also be tax time and other breaks taking some people's money.

Best Always,
Vinny

no one can see how many slots are takin how many are left and i think every one i waiting for the topper auction to decide how much money to put towards the other cards. try what vinny said add the toppers in as random slots and watch it fill. at 10 bucks per slot can't see what is holding this break back except the topper thing

I find that per your first post ::Hey everyone - here's the scoop...

Details are posted on my site - Karl


WHY must we go to your site can not everything be posted here ??
and why have a auction for the top loaders ??
It`s like Karl you changed the way you are going to do the Football break...why can it not be done like the baseball break you just completed ??
Kinda confused here
BUt I to be in this one too....just need better info

Peter

Just as a statement: i think all breaks that are posted on here should be done as the first post being the basic info and the slots available. then as the slots fill the first post can be edited to show who bought slots and who paid. then later you can edit it again to show the random.org results. i just think that is easier then searching the thread for all that info.

Lost about $200 total on the last break and need to make sure that I can break even at least with this one. Don't see anyone offering to help me out on that one, but read on and find out what would happen if I would have bumped up the slot prices...

When I priced out the baseball break, it was based on the price at the time I announced the break, not the actual price I got the case for. I could have bumped the slots up a few bucks, but that would have caused backlash from hell.

I'm trying to keep the slot prices as low as possible without losing my butt every time. At $10 with no base slots, this one should be a no brainer. The loaders being auctioned is meant to address the half-dozen people or so that emailed me because they would have offered a higher price for a topper slot after seeing what was pulled (now if nothing like what pittsnoggled got was pulled, maybe they wouldn't have had those ideas).

Also, with the Loader auction (and my breaks in general), I'm not out to make a profit. Just want to have some fun and let other people get some sweet cards. Any amount in excess of what it costs for everything will be used for an exclusive break (TBD by the winning bidders) only for the winning bidders.

Like everything else, I don't buy any slots for myself, nor do I keep any cards for myself...potentially the least selfish of any of the breakers on youtube.

***Reason for no posting slot count---not necessary - only 15***

LOL!

If everyone wants me to reject the offer of someone to buy all the rookie base cards so they can be given away, and then put the loaders back into the random mix, it means that not every slot is going to be a hit and there's that chance for someone to get a very low value for their buy in.

Your call, but all of my intentions are in good faith and trying to make it a good break for everyone...remember, I got a slam of emails from people that wanted a refund for the base rookie & prospect cards they got - even some of the autos because they weren't a Joba.

BTW, those people are not going to be named, just not going to be allowed in any of the breaks...you know, refunded payments, return to sender on the mo's, that kind of stuff. Pretty lunch-counter-revolution and quiet.

Don't want to go to my site to read about the break, fine. Its $10 a slot. There are 3 hits (slots) per pack. No base slots. 144 slots total.

$10 per slot - Minimum of 2 slots per person

8 boxes, 6 packs per box, 5 cards per pack

PER PACK -
1 Autographed Rookie Card
1 Rookie Relic Card
1 Veteran Relic Card
2 Rookie Cards

(CARD) SLOT BREAKDOWN:

Slot 1 - Pack Hit #1
Slot 2 - Pack Hit #2
Slot 3 - Pack Hit #3
(No base slots in this break! EVERY SLOT IS A HIT!!!)

Each box will have 2 Autographed Box Loader Cards
Case hit - 1 Dual Autographed Gold Refractor Card

16 Box Loader slots will be auctioned off with opening bids of $10

Karl

I think that 99% of us thought that you based your slot price on actual cost to your door.I for one would have chipped in a few more $$ to help out....if you had asked for help....an gave a reasonable reason...
SO I hope you have a better handle of the cost of the case of football to your door and are using the selling of base cards and toppers to off set the increased cost if there is one ???

In saying that put me down for 6 slots @10

The slot prices were figured for everything including paypal fees, shipping costs and the case...but the case price went up and I ended up having about a dozen or so more parcels to ship than I had planned for. I'm not one to just up and change prices or beg for extra money - simply trying to make everything as simple as possible for everyone's enjoyment.

The handle is on the case price NOW but if it takes 2 weeks to fiil the slots, who knows. LOL!

I'd be better off buying a box of the stuff outright and destroying all of the cards on video - would be just as exciting as getting kicked in the pants by people that are unappreciative about their cards/slots/autos, etc. and losing money...or I should just start buying cases of Trilogy for the same general effect. LOL!!!!!

Thank goodness I don't work for the government

Karl I`d pay money to see you do that kind of break and then you could look straight in to the camera and say 25reggiebushfan I will make sure you get the best of the best
For those that read and do not understand it`s all in fun,just a play on words directed to the unappreciative slot buyers
Karl I hear ya
