Depends on what the break is. If its a team break, then basically take the case price divied by the teams, then factor in paypal and shipping and supplies. If its a "hit" break (Hit generally being GU or Auto) then case price divided by hits and factoring in pp, supplies, and shipping. They'll be a host (geneally speaking a vet. member of the board thats well known and respected they'll host and pay for the case (with the group holders money), then break the case (live on the boards or camera feed). Slots will be pre determined (normally via random.org or some other non baised method), then the slot holders sit back with a cold one and wait for the good or bad news depending on what their slot turns into.

alright...seems fair enough....let say for exemple...

we break a 3 box case of the cup(im only using this as an exemple so its quick and easy)

and the ppl in are: Joe, Paul, Ryan and Steve(again random names)
does the order for each box stay the same? like box #1,2 and 3? or do you randomly pick the orders for each box? Also what if paul was drawn first? does he get first pick at any card out of all 3 boxes or just the first? i would really like to participate in one of these...What is the normal price to expect to be in one of these?

the names get randomized by random.org...#1 name gets the base slot ususally...the names that follow go by the hits in order of each box...if box #1 has 3 hits then slot #2,3 and 4 get them, then box #2 if theres 3 hits, #5, 6 and 7 gets those....normal price right now for a UD the Cup break is $85 per slot...all determines on what the price of the case is, how many hits are in a case and how many participants you have...also the slot price covers the toploaders and postage the group break host has to cover

all the names get placed into random.org and the 1st name to come up gets the base cards...in the cup we do the 1st 2 slots get the base slots b/c theres at least 12-13 base per case, so the 1st slot gets the base cards in tins 1-3 and the 2nd slot gets the base cards 4-6

for instance if we do a break and say the first tin has the following:

Brodeur Base
Kane Auto Patch RC /99
Crosby Auto Patch /75
Kariya Quad Jersey /25
Ovechkin Base

#1 slot holder (base slot) gets the Brodeur and Ovechkin because thats the base cards in the tin, #2 gets the Kane auto patch rc /99, #3 gets the Crosby, #4 gets the Kariya

now we go onto tin #2
Crosby Base
Toews Auto Patch RC /99
Ovechkin Patch Auto /75
Bossy Auto /25
Toews Printing Plate RC 1/1

the guy who has the base slot still gets the Crosby (because he has the base from tins 1-3) #5 gets the Toews Patch Auto, Ovechkin goes to #6, Bossy #7 and Toews Printing Plate goes to #8 (because a printing plate is considered a hit)

I'm not sure exactly what sports you are in to, but we have a few that are being organized right now. Little bit of everything, except hockey, as we just finished up a Cup break.

Baseball, hosted by yours truely.
http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/g...ion-cheap.html

Football, hosted by jbs
http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/g...ball-case.html

And last, but certainly least
Basketball, hosted by some dude with tats all up and down his arms, ebacardi2 (and his hot ass girl)
http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/g...-box-case.html

Feel fee to jump in on any one of them, big range of prices so if you cant afford to jump on a big time set, there are upper-middle tier cases that are surprisingly cheap to join. Any of the breakers will be more than happy to walk you through the process, as they all have different approaches to doing the break.

Most importantly though, have fun

good point. If VC is in any break, be sure to buy a few extra slots because he will get the base slot, or at least 1 of them.

hahaha thats funny.

Yeah im only into hockey...sorry

I understand how things work now...what are the chances of getting more than 1 jersey/auto card?

I guess one would need all the base cards to make up for a auto or jersey card right? I wouldnt mind being part of an Ultimate Collection hockey break or OPC premier break.

Anyone know anything about one coming up?

it depends on how many slots you have, only 1 card per slot...and the base card slot is better than some of the hit slots believe it or not ....hockey is dead right now besides the cup, after this the next will probably be UD Black Hockey 07-08

Should I attempt to resurrect the OPC group that I had going? Our first case was pretty solid, so I would expect the second to be close.

A full case of OPC right now might not be the best idea. The value is down because of The Cup and Black coming out, well, whenever UD decides to release it.

OPC would still be a decent group break though. Lot less of a chance to get burned, while still having the possibility of getting the big hit. And with the way that I did the first one, a few lucky slot holders got some extras.

Heres the link to it. It has been out there for a while now, so it might not fly.
