I say that you crack those cases as they come in...once all payments are received of course. That way it is less work for you when the better resale products come out like Platinum and hopefully gets the cards in everyone's hands quicker.

I would enjoy busting all this product but it is going to be a ton of work on the other end for Pat.

I think we should follow the break as it was set up. I don't think it is good business to set the break up, have everyone sign up, and have some people pay, and then change the rules of the break. Besides that, some people have already talked like they will not be able to pay until close to the end. Hmmm, maybe we should remove them from the list and replace them with people that can pay now, so we can bust the crappy Topps Chrome today! Just a thought.

Fyi, not sure how much more difficult it'd be to run but I think it would be better to give everyone a random team in each case. It'd spur a lot more trading and then you won't get stuck with six cases worth of a bad team especially for $250+...

We covered this and it was shot down almost immediately...1 team, 7 cases, thats the gamble

Now you are not only a post bumper....But now a post bumping troll!!!

You came into this thread and made it a point to show your arse...you may be able to use ignorance as an excuse for most things in your life, but not here on Blowout, we are above that.

But Patrick...Whatever you decide about the break is fine with me, I know I don't want my cards until the end.

I won't change the setup of the break unless everyone is on board with it. What was discussed was an option to consider as for flipping purposes, it is best to get everything out early. If everyone were to decide that it would be a good idea to open as they come in, we can do that. But if everyone isn't on board with that idea, we will wait.

Packattack - The rules are the rules. 99% of the people here follow them and don't have a problem with it. Your thread was bumped early in a fashion that isn't allowed under forum rules. Therefore, it was deleted.

Well my official vote [are we voting? ] stands as follows:

I am all for opening as they come in; I also do not mind if we wait until JAN to bust them all. So, essentially, its up to the rest of you

My vote is I don't care how it is broken. But have to say for those that want to watch the break(s), it may be easier to do it in pieces rather than a full day(s) break in January.

Didn't see it asked, but are we doing anything with the wrappers from the TC? And if so, how is that going to work?

Don't know if anyone has brought this up... Can we trade teams between cases or is that too much work for you Pat?

I will be bogarting the wrappers and trying to hit a Heyward auto

Joking of course. The 2 cases of TC wrappers will be evenly distributed between the teams. Figure 19.2 per team, so every team will have at least 19 and a few will have 20.

Hadn't really thought about that. I'd suppose that it can be done. It might add a bit of time to my sorting, but shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Ok, so with the second case of TC added, please send me an additional $14 (if you have paid, preferably as a gift so I don't catch the fees again). If you have not paid yet, I am updating the total price on the first post to include the additional $14.

Everyone will be getting a refund at the end once everything is paid for. With the prices on some of the products falling, the slot price will go down. So pending nothing increases, you should all get (hopefully) a $10 or so refund.

Remaining payment sent. I forgot to put my username in the comments though.

I'd like to propose a random for the TC wrappers. 2 randoms, each gets one case worth. Can't send in 19 or 20 wrappers.

Would it be too much trouble Patrick, to redeem the Chrome Wrappers for us and then include the hits from the packs in with the rest of our haul? Not sure what the added expense would be but since our other cases aren't getting cracked until January, this would be an added break for us all...let me know what you think

Probably not a good idea. Who knows how long Topps is going to drag their feet on getting these things done and sent out. I don't want to be sending out stuff for this break 8 months from now when Topps decides to send out the sets. That and with there being an odd number of wrappers per slot, I don't know how I would break things up. Probably better to send out the 19.2 wrappers per slot and let you guys buy 4/5 packs from your LCS/BO to get a full set of the mail in cards.


Second case of Topps Chrome has arrived. It is marked as such and will join its brother in the corner of my room waiting for the break.

Just curious if BDPP has been locked in already. If not, it is really low, about $50 dollars less than the original price prediction. Also, Platinum is about $125 cheaper, Sterling about $30, and EEE about $150. This looks like a decent savings.
