Being a couple weeks away from the release of Sterling and obviously not going to be starting early, has any thought been given to when the break is going to occur if Sterling is actually released on the 19th? That weekend? I would imagine this break is going to take a while. Just would like a little heads up as I would like to watch the break and may have to rearrange a few things now rather than at the last minute.

Thanks in advance.

Should only take 2 nights to break. He does 4 cases of Bowman Draft in one night. But I wouldn't mind if he did like 3-2-2 and broke it out over 3 nights.

If a multiple day break is what is going to happen then why not start early. If we are waiting, then I would like to see all 7 cases in one day, seems like that was the point. Maybe my thought process is off though.

i thought that was the thinking too. the reason to wait, other than that's how it originally started, was that all 7 would be done in one sitting. i guess nobody knows but pat since he is running it.

Below is my current plan of attack for this. It may all be up to change depending on my work schedule. We are running a conference in Tucson on the 15th or 16th, so I may be out of town for a few days right around my planned break date. I should know for sure when the office opens back up next week (we are off from 12/23 - 1/3, which is awesome )

I like the idea of 3-2-2. I think that might be what I will roll with. Here is how I will probably do the break.

Monday 1/17 - EEE, Draft
Tuesday 1/18 - TC x2, BC
Wednesday 1/19 - Platinum, Sterling

I'm anticipating a 7 PM EST start each night. If I run it like that, I should be able to have everything sorted and shipped out on Monday 1/24.

Everything is in hand except for the case of Sterling, so barring any further delay, that should work.

Which one of those drafts is really Platinum?

Opps, the Draft on 1/19 should be Platinum.

So some of the cases are going to be busted early? My point being we have been asking to break early, but not everyone could agree. I arranged my work schedule so that I would be off work (I work evenings and nocs) after the 19th to watch this. If you are going to bust some earlier than the 19th, why 2 days and not 2 weeks.

This could be a really dumb question but...here goes anyways,

With the Sterling it looks like we should get 48 USA relic or auto or relic/auto cards (6 per box x 8) if I read the sheet correctly. Now will you random each card off one at a time or do 30 at a time so we all get at least one and then the other 18, so some will get two? This question could have been asked already, if so sorry, I'm too lazy to read 17 pages.

If they are drafted players, I would hope they would go to the team that drafted them.

Since Eric doesn't read these threads after buying slots he is correct. If the player has been drafted, he will go to that team. If not, they will be given out at random (not using random.org just evenly distributing them in boxes after the break is all sorted). Too much work to actually randomize all of them.

Well, I didn't end up having to go to Scottsdale. However, everyone gets back tomorrow afternoon and there is a good possibility that I will be stuck in meetings wrapping up the conference. Will know for sure tomorrow by say noon. My guess is, I won't be home until around 8 PM. So we may have to push it back to around 9 PM start time. May end up causing us to only get through the EEE. I will give everyone a heads up when I know more.

Same here haha. I've had 6 cases of cards hanging out in my living room for the better part of 2 months. Imagine how that has been wearing on me Just think, there could be a superfractor chilling in one of the chrome cases sitting less than 5 feet away from me for that long. One can only hope right

does anybody want to grab the reins and do a breakdown by product for each prospect that can be pulled for each team?!? I know the EEE especially will be hard to follow since alot of the prospects aren't that well known.

Come on forum veterans, somebody step up!

Superfractor would be nice, but I'm waiting to see my Jonathon Singleton AFLAC. I know it's in there, just needs to be removed from the packaging.

When we are breaking, someone make sure to remind me about saving the wrappers. I don't want to mistakenly throw the damn things away.
