Default NT Break Idea

Looking for someone to host this. I know it sounds crazy but it was done last year so at least somebody on here is crazy enough to do this. It is a super cheap way to get a shot at a huge card. Instead of a hit or team break, it is a player draft. Take the checklist of players and have a spot for each player, so there would be about 250 spots for sale. A lot of people would be shut out, but would only be $7 or $8 a spot. The random is done and then we could draft the player we want, or since it is already released, all players could be randomed to the spots. Hope that makes sense but you get a chance at a great card, for little risk. Then you would get all cards of your player. What do you all think?

I suggested one of these for Sterling Baseball a year or so ago and people blasted me a new bunghole. I got a lot of "I might not get anything for this?" and the like. I countered with people paying $70 to get into breaks amd getting $10 worth of cards back

With the rash of noobs and less than stellar people here the breaker would be in for a lot of POSSIBLE chargeback issues.

Most people would jump at the chance for $8 to turn into a Kobe Auto and most would stand by their word. Some may not.

Cool, I knew somebody did, just wasn't sure who. I posted the idea with basketball in mind, but football would be cool too.

Sounds like a great idea. I'm not a fan of team breaks.

football and basketball are okay, baseball just has a lot more featured players, many of them no one would want. I just submitted a multi-year NT FB team break, maybe I'll try to get a high end players break going.

ive been trying to get one of these types for triple threads also, but maybe not so much just a player draft, id love to see a card draft, that way theres like multiple slots per player, and would make slot prices dirt cheap, though going to this extreme almost makes it like a bingo.

Dumb question, but this would be for just one case right? I'd say about half the breaks I've seen cases have had multiple cards of one player (LaMarcus Aldridge comes to mind).

So 32 hits, not counting base cards, among 250 slots? That's some gambling. I'm in!

at the price point, you cant go wrong. Hit or miss, imagine getting any name and pulling hits of the player? $7 a slot and you get a hit easily beats out buying a box and hoping to hit something!! $400 for 10 cards.. $40 at best per card. Alteast this way itll cost you $7 to get a shot at someone you actually want lol.
