Default Idea for a group break, looking for feedback and interest.

Alright. after some feedback it looks like there is more interest in doing a single sport super break of sorts. So, I'll leave that up for you guys to decide. The idea is that we'll be opening 1 box of just about every product that Blowout has available. This would be a team break and teams would be selected by draft. The draft order would be determined on random.org.



I went through and found the products available so below are the sport, year, products, costs of products and the advertised amount of hits. After the listing will be the total cost and the cost per slot with the approximate shipping and paypal fees.

Talk about ideas and options! Shipping is probably a little low, but would really depend on how many wanted their base

I say combine them into a huge-mega break at 400 a slot, and you get a team from each sport, have 30 slots, and 2 people get extra football slots each year. It's better than getting a box of exquisite

I love this idea but I doubt anyone would really go for it. Is there any interest from anyone in doing any of these breaks or any other suggestions?

yeah it would be really hard to pull the trigger on a 400 dollar group break. but you are right you would probably end up with more value than a box of exquisite. maybe break it into a basketball break and a football break so it would be like 200/slot for each sport that would be pretty cool. I would also throw out some of the super cheap stuff. products that dont guarantee hits or only have one hit or something like that.

The concept is good. I like the idea of a seperate sport break. Not interested in anything but football right now. I like the idea and the $200.00 price tag is not that bad.

Well after doing a bunch of math here's what I've come up with.

To get the football down to $200 a slot I knocked off the following products.
2006
Longevity
NFL Playoffs
Topps
Heritage
Draft Picks and Prospects
Prestige

2007
Longevity
Select
Chirography
Prestige
NFL Playoffs

2008
Bowman
Bowman Jumbo
Press Pass
Icons

2009
Sage Hit
Ultimate Collection
Heroes
Triple Threads
Sterling.

It brings it out to 200 Advertised Hits
Total cost of the boxes is 6122.52
6122/32= 191
I'm thinking around $9 for supplies, paypal fees and shipping. Maybe a bit less but we're right around
$200 per slot.



For the Basketball Break, I didn't eliminate anything and we actually would have a total of
233 Hits
Total cost of the boxes is 3,523.60
3523/30= 117
I'm thinking around $8 or $9 for shipping, supplies and paypal fees so that would be right around
$125 per slot.


So, what do you guys think?

I would like to see a break like this happen. If you did it right now I don't think I could participate cuz I don't have that much cash laying around, but if you give it like a month I would definitely be in.

P.S. It would definitely have to be a draft style team selection. No way I would risk that on a random team selection.

It would probably work best for me if it happened towards the middle of next month but we could get the ball rolling on it if there's enough interest and I'd be fine with doing it as a draft.

Alright, I edited the original post and it's now changed to one big group break for each sport. Now we just need some interested parties.
