Majority wins. Voting ends at 4p PST, or when the last vote is cast.
I vote option 1. And I also vote to random any Kobe or luck auto cards as well

I am okay with splitting the group up, however, I will ask for a $3 shipping fee (within the U.S.) on each team sold. If you sell the group as a whole, there will be no additional shipping charge.

And it looks like Option 1 will win out, so we will random the Host Country and Mascot Cards between the participants.

not sure I understand why there would be additional shipping, unless was sold to someone outside of break as shipping has already been paid for in slot price. maybe there is something I don't understand.

The cost to ship to one person is less expensive than 2, 3 or 4. That's why I mentioned in my response that if you sold your entire slot to another person, then there wouldn't be any additional shipping charges.

yes, but shipping has already been paid for to 8 different people. if one team is sold to someone who already had a spot, its still shipping to 8 different people.
I should actually get a shipping refund if I sell my spot to someone in the break already and reduce the number of packages you have send out - just kidding

You had me going there for a second

Here's how I see it:
There are 1728 cards in a case
Divided by 8, that's a total of 216 cards per person (of course, it won't be even)
I charged $7 for shipping and supplies
The stamp is going to cost me ~$6US if I ship Priority Mail Small Flat Rate, which leaves a whopping $1 for supplies.

If you split the teams up, I then have to pay for another stamp (at least $2.50US), on top of the extra supply cost.

If I do not assess some sort of additional shipping fee IF the teams are split up, then I will be the one losing money. I don't host breaks like this to make money, but I certainly don't expect them to cost me anything (other than my time, of course).

I should case my vote for Option 1 - Random to everybody, just in case it is close.

But Rpetrovi has a small point. Though he has slot Team Brazil so he might be biased. :-) The first break I was in did a full random though so I am biased. I am not sure it is just like the Kobe packs going to the Lakers though. Kobe binds to the Lakers completely. Host cities bind to Brazil the country, but also to the World Cup. If we are drafting Brazil the National Team and all its players I think there is a degree of separation there. At least enough to warrant the vote, if not the random.

you are not paying for an additional stamp if you are shipping to someone who is already in the break.

Valid point, good sir, I guess I could have clarified (only because I had someone PM me asking if he could jump in the break).

IF you sell the slot to someone in the break, shipping is paid for, if you sell to someone outside the break, then my original comment applies.

Thanks. Draft is now finished. Feel free to continue trying to trade/sell slots. Case is paid for, so all I'm waiting for is a tracking number. I imagine we will be busting this next Wednesday or Thursday, depending on when the case is received.
