Is there any interest in this? I would be willing to host and have already talked to Chris about case prices. Is this still on the table?

I've only opened 3 boxes of this product. It is nowhere near Americana. My first box was the best with a 1/1 Auto but I still haven't been able to sell it. 2nd box was a total dud. 3rd box had a Auto Letterman which sold but I didn't even make half the box price back.

The only good thing about having a group break with this product would be to see the "case hit". Other than that junk IMO.

Agreed Junkie. I opened one box and it was crap.

Agreed: The local shop guy here opened a couple boxes here and he is still trying to sell his cards as well and he got a piece of a suit from Sinatra and a gretta garbo dress card. Those are 2 big hollywood legends that are not selling.

Also, I think I suggested this awhile ago and no takers.

I'd be interested in doing a group break as long as the prices starte out where Americana I started out....lol I don't think anything will be as successful as Americana I. Even though the last box of Americana I I purchased was horrible.

Just submitted a thread for an Americana II group case break. Waiting for the Mod to approve it. Lets see how many takers we get.

Default Americana II Guesstimate

4 hits per box= 72 slots
+ 1 Base slot
+ 1 Parallel/Inserts slot
_________________
74 Slots total for a 18 box case
=
Roughly $35/ slot at current presell price of course

Does this sound about right?

I did one slot for all the base and paralells. Also did it on a 6 box case not sure how many folks would be into this product. I figured $35.50 for first slot additional ones would be a bit cheaper.

I think the 18 box case would be better because there should be the "case hit". 26 slots isn't much of a group break. You have some of the Great board members that will want 10+ slots. They are the ones who keep feeding the group break IMO

Yep got a case price from Chris. So just need my post to hit the boards so I can update the costs and parameters. This should be fun break!
