Default lower end case breaks.

are there any people interested in lower end case breaks!? I find the higher end breaks arent for everyone. Im talking like low end as in Black diamond or the Upper Deck series or hot prspects. something like that.

Myself id rather do lower end breaks by team. I find it more fun.
lmk what u guys think. id like to start up more by the team breaks

Lower end team breaks seem to be tough to fill, for what reason, I have no idea. I tried it not to long ago with UD2 hockey and only got about half way full. It is still worth trying though as I think it could potentially be a good money maker. But then some people might get a bunch of base cards and nothing to show for the $20 or so they invested.

Just a thought but I'd wait til the Cup comes out and then even the guys that spend big bucks will help put together or fill lower end hockey breaks. Trust me, there are guys that have been drooling about even the THOUGHT of the Cup. But once they get their fill of that there will be plenty of time to visit other hockey products and they can help out big time.

We should do a hot prospects case. 2005/06 if possible. If there is 1 auto/rc per box, then however many boxes comes in a case will be the number of people involved in the break so that each is guaranteed a hit. You could also throw in a base slot.

I think most of the hockey guys here are profit breakers more than the other sports, so they can afford to drop $550-600 on a low end case knowing they will make money on it.

I did team sets last year and this year out of Upper Deck and killed it. Now that I have reset myself and this is just a hobby again, not a way to make a living, I'll go back to that model.

So a group break is fairly pointless on the low end. Even Upper Deck breaks make sense. 72 young guns slots, 12 insert slots, 30 team slots, 24 jersey slots. It would come out to $5-7 a slot. No point though.
