IDK

Honestly, I have my doubts that we could fill another 5 case break of BDPP... at least right away.

I want to do a break of marquee and lineage, but that won't be for awhile.

The other option is for a 4 case break of:

1. 2007 UD SP rookie edition
2. 2007 UD Future Stars
3. 2006 Topps 1952
4. 2008 UD Masterpieces

It would be a hit draft break, so no worries about redemptions.

How many cases? A team draft is not enough value - 18+ teams (over 60%) will not get a hit in just 1 case.

The teams will cost $35+ each per case too...

Is it worth $150 for a team across 5 cases?

Haha, too true.

Well, the older break will hold - that one isn't going anywhere.

I will pm all club members and ask if they are interested in a BDPP team break. If I can get 25+ members that say "yes" - then I will do that.

We can also do a BDPP player draft later too as long as BO has the cases.

how bout bowman draft hit break then to help keep cost down.. i see a team break really isnt worth it at those prices.. a hit draft on like 2 cases would be cool.. just limit everyone to two spots untill everyone gets a chance to join

Any thoughts about incorporating 09 Topps Unique baseball into one of your mixed CFB? I just say it is now in stock and there are pretty nice case hits in that product.

I would be down for any type of BDPP break...I think a hit break would be hard because there are so many RCs/prospects, unless you just grouped together all non-numbered cards into one "hit" per player. But I'm down either way.

-I think another player draft of BDPP would be awesome, but it may be overkill to do it while the other one is running.
-I think a team draft of BDPP would be a bad idea as some have already mentioned.
-The 4 assorted case break you had suggested would be fun and more in the spirit of CFB, but I personally am not as excited about it as BDPP.
-The idea I like most right now would be a 3(or maybe 4) case hit break of BDPP. You would have the 36 autos + 9 USA autos + 10-12 low #d refs + chrome lots of the top prospects + 3 AFLACs + a few lots of reg refractors.... there are some good possibilities to put together some nice value for people. I think you could turn it in to 120-140 slots pretty easily and have it at $20-25 a slot, with a good amount of people getting good returns.

Maybe recruit some input from the high volume BDPP breakers on here as to ways to split everything up

I agree that a team break of BDPP isn't a good idea. There will be too many spots getting little to nothing.

I prefer breaks with 2010 or 2011 products because it drives me crazy when nice hits are pulled and they are expired redemptions. I realize if you do it as a hit break then at least noone gets "stuck" with the expired redemption, but it still makes me mad that one or more of the hits in a product is a waste.

If dachman gets a few big hits in his 5 cases I think another 4 or 5 case player break of BDPP would fill fast. If his cases are relatively uneventful then I think they would not.

Those are all good points.

There is another thing that worries me about Dachman's break - and I mean him no offense at all. However, he has never run a group break. A player draft is easily the most difficult break to run - hands down. I am afraid that there is a possibility that this break may be a lot more difficult than he has counted on.

If this break goes sour, then I think another BDPP break will not be possible anytime soon unless a mod is running it.

I joined the break so that I can watch and learn from it (and hopefully get a top 10 pick).

Even with Dachman running the 5 case bdpp break, my guess is it will still fill pretty quickly. Sooomany people miss out on these types of things that running another one would be like a 2nd chance drawing for some, and it surely will fill. I have never done a player break, but they usually are the cheapest, and everyone usually ends up with something.

I think a hidden bonus would kind of be that we would have competing breaks. so it might be fun to see who's 5 case break gets the better hits. All a matter of luck really, but still kind of cool. JMO Chris.

As far as the older stuff the 07 SP, and the Masterpieces are great product, but I personally would have to think on it just due to those pesky redemption's. That really kills the case value IMO, and would ruin a break if it's a big hit.

Now that is an interesting idea. I can easily get the spots well under $20 too.

Why not do this and then afterward do a 5 case bdpp break?

2 cases = $5200.00 but we can probably get it for $5000 or less.

320 hits plus base lots (4 boxes of prospects or 4 boxes of rookies each)

so 328 hits

$19.00 for the first spot and $17.50 each additional (estimated)

Or we could go super crazy and do Topps sterling...

I am just not sure it is feasible right now. Maybe though. How about I post a poll? Whatever wins, we can do that.

It stinks that the Finest break has us handcuffed.

About the older stuff, you are correct - the expired redemptions are messed up. However, the prices are lower because of just that. So, we are not paying full price...

I like this idea for either product, a nice chance for a couple really big pulls for a few people and the cost is about right for this club.

It seems a poll would be best given the different ideas and most of them great. Great idea.

Poll should have at least these ideas and a few others

1. The Bowman Sterling break mentioned

2. The older break you mentioned

3. the 5 case bdpp break

4. the 2011 sterling break you also mentioned

5. ???

I really dig both the sterling and older set case break ideas. I'd be up for either of those.

Lets do the Bowman Sterling!!!
We still keep it under $25, although that would mean 328 hits... are you ready for that?
