Default 07-09 Multi-Football Case Team Draft Break!

Hi guys and gals. This is a multi-case football team DRAFT break that, if filled, will take place over the course of 2 days. I know this is a pretty intimidating endeavor, but I hope it pans out. This may take a while to fill, if it even does, but I thought I’d give it a shot.

I want to emulate Patrick’s great multi-case baseball break he hosted a couple of weeks back, only using a variety of football cases from the past 3 years for the break. I was able to obtain some great price breaks on the cases from Chris, so the savings are pretty substantial. Here’s a list of the cases with quoted prices for this sponsored break:

(1) 2009 Playoff Contenders Football Hobby 12 Box Case ($XXXX)

******************
UPDATE 12/23/09:
- Every Box will deliver at least one on-card autograph...this is first time since 2000 Contenders
- 8 of 12 boxes will deliver a 5th autograph
- 5 of 12 boxes will deliver a legendary contender autograph
- One of the following on-card autographs per case; Matthew Stafford, Mark Sanchez or Percy Harvin
- Two or the following on-card autographs per case; LeSean McCoy, Michael Crabtree, Chris "Beanie" Wells, Jeremy Maclin, Josh Freeman or Knowshon Moreno
*******************

PER BOX ITEMS
- 4 Autographs (At least one on-card autograph)
- 1 Parallel
- 2 Rookie Of The Year Contenders
- 2 Round Numbers
- 2 Draft Class
- 2 Rookie Roll Call
- 2 Legendary Contenders
- 1 Other

(1) 2008 Leaf Limited Football Hobby 16 Box Case ($XXXX)

PER BOX ITEMS
- 4 Autograph or Memorabilia cards
- 1 Legends
- 1 Phenoms
- 2 Bronze Spotlight
- 1 Silver Spotlight
- 1 Gold Spotlight
- 1 Team Trademarks

And 5 others of the following: Inserts or parallels, Legends, Phenoms, Team Trademarks, Banner Season.

(1) 2007 Leaf Limited Football Hobby 12 Box Case ($XXX)

PER BOX ITEMS
* 3 autograph or memorabilia cards(at least 1 autograph).

EACH 12 CT. INNER CASE WILL HAVE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
* A cut signature card
* A Lettermen card
* An autographed Limited Slideshow card

The price breakdown:

$108 for the 1st team slot
$106 for the 2nd slot
$103 for additional slots

I figured with multiple years represented, the chances of hitting something nice will be spread out over a larger number of teams.

Rules and procedure:
1. Once all payments are made, I will random the names of all participants 5 times using random.org to generate a draft order. The video will be uploaded to youtube as well.
2. Once all teams are drafted, trading will be permitted up until 30 minutes before the actual start of the break.
3. Should a card feature multiple teams, it will be randomed 5 times between the participants who own those teams.

Hope this break takes off. Please let me know if you have suggestions or questions.

Im in for 2. Just a thought, how about trading Unique for Chrome or Limited.
Either way I'm in, I'm just not a big fan of Unique.

I thought about Limited for 09 also, but it was out of stock. Chrome interested me, but I like the idea of the case hit for Unique, which is why I went for. Hope it's alright.

Would you guys prefer a single case of Unique or 2 cases of 09 Bowman Chrome? I can email Chris to see what he offers on the Chrome, but I'm going to assume it will add a few dollars to the per slot price. Let's see what everyone says.

What about SP? It would only add about $10ish per person.

I didn't want to include it because ramsfan's already got a break going for it by itself. I wanted to add products that weren't already available in other breaks ... or at least try to.

Losing steam quickstyle. If this doesn't fly, might just do a break with just the 07 and 08 Limited. I'll give it a couple more days to attract interest.

Nah, keeps me busy. It's one of my simple pleasures in life. Why stop doing something you love that also helps others in the process?

I'll take a slot regardless but I really think if you ditched the case of Unique it would help the break fill. You would still have a nice spread of 3 years represented and it would bring the slot price down.

By my calculations, if we lose the Unique case and stuck with Contenders, and the Limited cases, the team slot prices would be brought down to the following:

$108 for the first team slot
$106 for the second slot
$103 for third or more slot

Is everyone ok with this? I may need to confirm this with the powers that be.

Made an executive decision after a good suggestion was made. To bring down the price, I've eliminated the Unique case, so now each year is represented with a good case. Hopefully, this'll get the rolling a bit more.

Do you have the same team for every case or do you get a different team for each case??

Same team for each case. That way it gives more teams a shot to hit something decent since it spans 3 different years and 3 different crops of rookies.
