Full, nice work Mike. Patrick, move this baby to active and I will pay you right now so I can pretend it never happened.

Pat you should put me on your black list anyway, so I stop spending so much damn money on your breaks.

Hey thanks man I appreciate it. Well if my luck is anything like normal I won't get a decent team let alone a kick ass one, but you never know the luck has to turn around sooner or later! Right?

Surprised that it filled that fast myself. But I seem to have found a niche and people flock to it

Well it is different than what we see 'round here, plus you are known for always doing it right. I am glad it filled so I wasnt tempted to take part

One recommendation...in regards to this rule:

"Any non-MLB cards, team USA, etc. will be randomized off between all members of the break. Dual/Triple/etc. will be randomized off between the teams listed on the the card."

If a Team USA or some similar type of card is pulled of a player that is currently under contract by an MLB organization, does the person with that team have dibs?

For example, if we were breaking 2010 Bowman, would the Nationals Slot have dibs on Bryce Harper (even though the card was a USA)?

Any chance of you picking up 12 boxes of Topps chrome at $45 each and just storing the case at your house until the break? Looks like if you did it this way we may be able to knock some money off of these because I have a feeling Topps cranked the presses on all of these and you may be able to pick some of it up on special for a significant savings.

Thats actually a really good idea.

Just looked at the current pricing on the site. Chrome is about $25 cheaper than the quoted price and EEE is $50. We may want to consider holding out for a while and getting TC even cheaper. Let me know what you guys think. I have enough to get the Chrome now, but still need some payments to lock in the other 5 cases.

*Edit* Its actually $50 cheaper to get 12 boxes than it is to get a sealed case right now. So I think we should definitely do that.

And the price keeps dropping on TCH, down to $525/case.

Looks like Chrome is $150 cheaper, Sterling is $30 cheaper, and EEE is $85 cheaper than we initially projected...should save us about about $9/slot am I right?

On that note, do you have a due date in mind for payment?

Lastly, has anybody done the research yet to figure out the hot slots for this draft? Will Bryce Harper have any cards issued in any of these cases? I'm guessing that along with Strasburg would make the Nats the prize of the randomizer...

Whatever works best to get the products as cheap as we can works for me.

I still need a few payments to come in so I can lock in the cases. The prices are dropping, so I can hold off on putting the $$ down, but it would be nice to have ready to go in case something starts to get hot and goes back up.

And yes, prices of slots should drop. Won't know exactly how much until we lock in the cases though. So those who have already paid will get a bit of a refund.

Still a lot of TBD on the checklists yet, but I would be happy with any of the following:

Washington, Atlanta, Minnesota, Detroit, NYM, Cincy, BoSox, SF.

Would be happier with some more than others. Depending on the checklists, there are a few others that would look pretty good too.
