I voted marquee and would definitely put the extra money in for a full 12 case.

Hi guys -

I'm still here! The new house is consuming all of my time. Hopefully things settle down in the next couple of weeks.

Just working on a little math trying to figure out where we are at through the breaks we have voted on (disclaimer: this is just an estimate as I don't have the actual numbers in front of me.)

Rollover from May /June after fees $951 (this includes $200 down payments on Bowman Platinum 6 box and 18 box TTT)
+Payments for July $1215
+Payments for August $1215
+Payments for September $1215
-----------------------------
roughly $4596 (this does not include paypal fees or shipping, nor does it include bidding on unclaimed teams for July/Aug/Sept)

$4596- $1050 (2011 Bowman Platinum 12 box in July/$200 down) - $1425 (2011 TTT 9 box in Sept/$200 down)
------------------------------------------------------------------
$2121 left over for August break and future.

It looks like we may be able to do a full case of Marquee without adding funds if we choose to do so. Otherwise the money could be rolled over for a future break.

Swerve has confirmed the rollover amount of $951 (again $400 has already been put down on cases)

As we initially voted to have a 12 box case of platinum before all of the price/date changes etc, I believe we should go forward with that. August will be Marquee and Sept will be TTT (it looks like the additional funds needed for the 2nd half of the case will be roughly $75).

My thinking is do a 6/12 box case of Marquee like we are doing TTT. Those that wish to put in extra can. Then we have a nice bankroll of about $1000 to do a higher end or multiple case break in the last three months

Hey guys, this was the last vote so we are still reserved for a 6 box case of platinum though I doubt Chris will mind moving it to a 12 box case.

Blowout Cards Forums - View Poll Results



Before I make any changes or more reservations I want to lay out a scenario and get thoughts where we are at as I have already reserved the 18 box Triple Threads case.

We can do both 12 Box Platinum and 12 box Marquee.

If we do this then every TEAM would owe roughly $20 in September for half case (9) boxes of Triple Threads. This would not be optional. If you want you can pay it in July, August or September as part those monthly payments or you can pay it over a couple months payments. I don't think this is too much to ask of everyone

Then for the additional (9) boxes it would be roughly $60 per team if everyone participated and would go up from there with each owner that chooses not to participate. This part of the cost would be optional.

Just food for thought, I am trying to make sure everyone is on the same page before something gets screwed up.

I like the idea, but some have voiced repeatedly that they do not want to add any additional money whatsoever.

I would rather not use the June $ towards a 12 box case of Marquee. I think we should vote what product the June money goes towards (Marquee or TTT). If we already know that 20+ teams (a clear majority) want a master case of TTT why not use the June $ towards it.

I would rather get more boxes of triple threads than marquee

The problem is you still have to get all teams to add extra funds, no matter how you slice it.

It could also stay 6 Platinum. Then be 12 Box Marquee and there would be enough funds for 9 box TTT and only those that want to have to add for the rest of the TTT.

The cost of the extra 9 boxes of TTT is not going to change under any scenario because if you can't get all members to participate then you can't use group funds.
