The only way you could really make it work in the current format to be a team break with a decent price is to have 5 separate case breaks each have 32 teams, so there are 160 slots. So if you buy 2 slots you only own a team in 2 of the 5 cases. If you do it that way....

$925 x5 = $4625
$4625/165 (160 team slots and 5 usa slots (1 per case) = $28/slot + supplies and PP fees

Either way is good for me, I just think we should keep the price reasonable ($20 - $30ish) per slot.
This does not change the problem of a team draft - you still have a 60% chance of getting nothing for $30+

Ahhh yes I see what you're saying...I was mostly addressing the people that wanted the team draft saying they would pay more. It just seems to go against the point of a cheap fun break because we would lose the cheap. Most Team drafts I've been involved in are easily $35+ per slot.

I like the sound of the mixed break. I'm not a big fan of any team breaks though. Products can get very heavy on certain teams. Then again, I'd probably join no matter what

Well, team drafts are often the way to go because they are easier. 30 or 31 spots to manage as opposed to 70,358 spots like our last few breaks.

Slightly Off-Topic Newsflash:

My other club (I don't run it - just own 2 teams) is opening up to new members.

They are MUCH different from us: they only do 1 break each month (wimps ), they have a $45 monthly dues that ALL goes to breaks, and they have several awesome teams that are now available:

Angels
Astros
Blue Jays
White Sox
Athletics
Padres
Diamondbacks
Indians

You can join this club and if you tell them that Houdini sent you, you get the special introductory price of only $44.99!

Here is the original club thread... http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/t...ng-thread.html

To join, you can post there, or here, or pm nodie27

Aside from the wimps comment , he is absolutely correct. We are looking for some additional owners and houdini has a lot of input on the other monthly break. I rely on him for a lot so you can trust it is in competent hands.

any questions let me know

Here is the newest poll - but it looks like Sterling from the previous votes a PMs from here...

If that holds true, then I will post that break shortly.

Remember to post that you have received your cards in CFBV.

UPDATE: Here is the catch - BO does not currently have 5 cases in their inventory. Only 4 cases are left as of right this second.

They may get more or we could do a 3 or 4 case break instead...

Just so you know.

Just wanted to update everyone:

CFB VI is ready and should post sometime tonight. 3 cases of BDPP (player draft) and 1 case Sterling (hit draft).

See the details here: this is only an example - this is NOT the official break

Blowout has set the cases aside for us - so we are good.

I have NOT reserved any spots for anyone yet. There are 423 spots, so we should be good, but if you want to reserve a spot, post it here.

If you have posted reserve requests anywhere else OR PMed them to me, I may lose them. There are over 60 of us and just 1 of me... so please do not get mad if I missed you. I am working on a solution to this problem - I am building an email list for our club website.
