Please advise if a MOD is doing the random.

If so I will take a slot.

Thanks,

I would like to know if an MOD is doing the random as well. If so, this actually looks pretty interesting and I would take a slot.

Thanks,

Yes a mod will do the randomization. I will give the mod the username of all the participants after the break fills. Thanks!!!

Just wondering... will there be any rules regarding time limits for the draft?

As most of the folks from the '09 BDP draft will attest, it's a real downer for all of us when someone spends a couple of days on the clock.

When it is someone's turn to make their card pick, I will PM them and they will have 1 day to make their pick, otherwise they will forfit that pick and have to wait until the end of the picks. I will add this to the case break description. Maybe I will add an upper deck basketball base card or a topps chrome baseball card to every pick that takes less than an hour to make as an incentive. Thanks for the question.

Throw me one slot of this as well.

I, personally, think a day is too long, I would say 2 hours should be plenty. Just give folks a PM as to a heads up when the draft is starting after the case is busted. Hopefully people that signed up can be around to pick their cards! Thanks for hosting!

EDIT: We will know our spots before you bust the case, correct??

I agree 100% - a day is WAY too long (2 hours sounds about right).

I don't think you should forfeit picks, though. If someone doesn't make their pick within two hours, they should get the card with the highest Beckett BV.

Okay,

This is how it will go down.

Everyone pays. I order the case and give the mod the randomization.

I give everyone their 4 picks per slot. (1-84)

I'll get the case (hopefully and few days later) and break it.

I'll give everyone a heads up and the person with the first pick can make their choice ASAP.

EVERYONE WILL HAVE 2 HOURS TO MAKE THEIR PICK. (I WILL PM THEM WHEN IT IS THEIR TURN.) (Unless of course it the middle of the night or something.)

Thanks for the question.

Another question, we will be able to watch the live break on ustream or something like it??

Just curious, I enjoy watching the breaks (and am probably not alone)

Sorry, the break will not be live but I will PM everyone the day that I am going to do the break and will upload the video to youtube that day as well as scan in all the cards. Thanks.

I pretty much have meetings everyday from 1:00-4:00 EST. So if the break is done on a weekday night and my spot comes up @ 1PM I should be penalized?

I agree 1 day is too long but we do need to take into account people do have lives.

If the break is finished @11PM EST there is no way I will be picking until the next day.

We can all be a little proactive and send the OP a list with the top 5-10 cards we want should out turn come and we are not online.

Just an opinion!

I was thinking draft picks could only be made between, x:xx EST and x:xx EST and no you should not be penalized. Hopefully we can square that away beforehand.

Also sending a list would be a great idea, especially if you know you can't check things during the day.

Hopefully we get this all squared away before we start and it should be pretty painless!

Great idea. Just send me a list of your top ten cards. If your two hours are up, then I just give you the best remaing card on your list. And if none of those cards are left, I will give you the card with the highest beckett value. Thanks for the idea.

BTW JUST ONE MORE SLOT!!!!!

K sounds good.

How about all picks need to be made between 10 a.m EST and 9 p.m. EST.

Does that work????
