This is possible.

2 entries = 6 boxes and might leave enough budget for Heritage and a master case of Tribute.

me four.

If you can get at least $25 out of each of the remaining teams by auctioning then you got that covered.

So are we sure we don't want to find some way to get the other teams claimed or at least auction them off on a per break basis? I mean that money can make a significant difference!

Still think we at least need to look at ideas for this or if we are just going to stick with the randomization then draft idea.

If all teams were claimed it would look a lot better.

Jan - 2010 Draft + $560 remaining
Feb - 12 boxes 2008 EEE ($800 + 4 super bowl entries) - $290 remaining
Mar - 2011 Heritage ($750) - $770 remaining
Aprl - 2011 Tribute 8 box case ($1905) - $35 remaining

versus current

Feb - 6 boxes of 2008 EEE ($400 + two SB entries) - $800 remaining
Mar - 2011 Heritage ($750) - $990 remaining
Apr - 2011 Tribute ($1905) - $25 remaining!

In order to add a different twist (and get more money in the pot) how about we auction off the unclaimed teams among current group members only and on a PER BREAK basis?

That was my thought from the outset. Easy way to get extra money into the pot each month.

I'm down with this and auctioning off teams to group members to increase capital.

Works for me to get more $$ in the pot. Let us know how you want to do it.

I think it is the best way to go. I mean yeah a bonus team is nice but think about it:

You randomly get the worst of the remaining teams for Bowman Draft. Well you are omitted from a randomly assigned team until everyone gets one. How much are you really gaining from this?

Versus we can get more money in the pot which means more product, which means more of you current team.

Everyone benefits from this is some way.

Well if we get majority view then this is the way we will go.

I'm on board with this, but it also brings more importance in choosing the right product(s) that represents all teams.

Looks like we are on our way to implementing this but I will still wait just to make sure before setting anything up.

I would like to see 2008 EEE in February, 2011 Heritage in March, and 2011 Tribute in April.
I like this idea as well.

If we are doing this I would be willing to pick up another team or so for the EEE portion at least.

How would the auctioning work for the remaining teams?

Maybe the easiest way would be:

Remaining teams for 2010 Bowman Draft case are $45 each. If no one claims then go down to say $35 each for remaining teams... until we get down to whatever?

And to be fair that everyone gets a chance to claim. If two people are willing to pay the same price for a team the that team goes to a ONE bid silent auction in which the higher offer gets the team for $1 more than the other member.

I am ok with teams left over to be auctioned as long as they are auctioned and everyone has a shot.

Why not start them at the cost per team, then per day they go down (if we're wanting to this this speedy say 10%). If a non break member wants in, would a 10% premium be fair?

Just silent auction all the remaining teams, allowing only the members already in the group.

I'm ok with breaking 08 EEE I guess especially for the SB promo ... heh

Also, are we planning on auctioning off the non claimed teams each break or are you committed to this team for the duration at the auction price?

Only thing I don't like about this is - Everyone in this group is committing to a year and during that time teams are going to have good and bad products.

I don't want some random buyer paying a discount and then getting a random hit that could have gone to someone committed to the group.

The only way I would sell one offs to outsiders is if they were excluded from cards that were randomed.

Or maybe there should be a rule that says:

If you are not paying full price $45/month for a team that team is omitted for getting randomly assign cards or being eligible for dual cards?

So say you pay $20 for the White Sox in a break and a dual card representing Orioles/White Sox automatically goes to the Orioles.

These would be per break only.
