Default pakman916's SportsCardMojo Break Club - Official Thread! Join Now!

I've been slowly building up my reputation as a group case breaker. Hopefully, some of you guys have had a chance to participate in one of my breaks. I've decided to form a club for various reasons. The primary reason is, I want to participate in my own breaks!

So here it is...
pakman916's SportsCardMojo Group Break Club

My goal is to create breaks that are fun and also different from most of the breaks you are used to. I've seen so many breaks, where unless you get a top 5 pick, the rest of the slots are useless. Because I realize it's no fun to be in the bottom half, I try to add value whenever possible to later picks or slots.

So here is what you can expect:

1) I mostly focus on Baseball, but I'm open to doing Football and Basketball. No hockey since most of your do not seem to care for it. I'm also open to doing low, mid and high end products. If I do a break outside of the 3 sports I've mentioned, it will not count towards this club although you are more than welcome to sign up.

2) I'll try to get in 1 break per month. So that's 12 breaks in a year.

3) I usually do a minimum of 2 cases per break. I would put my limit at 5 cases for products that come with a lot of cards. Sorting is a pain in the...

4) I try to keep the break prices < $20 for low end, ~$30 for mid range products and $40 for high end. It's hard to say since prices fluctuate.

5) By signing up for this club, you are guaranteed at least 1 spot in every break I do. EDIT!!! I will send a PM to everyone in the club. You have 48 hours to respond to me if you'd like a spot in the break. If I don't hear from you, I will assume you do not want to participate. If you'd like more than 1 spot, please let me know and I will guarantee you however many spots you want up to (5) slots.

6) There are NO fees to be a part of this club. It's completely FREE.

7) The ONLY requirement is that you participate in at LEAST 1 break out of every 3 that I host in one sport. I broke up the club into 3 sports (Baseball, Football and Basketball). For example, if I run 3 Baseball breaks and you do not participate in any of them, you will be removed from the Baseball list.

Sign up starts now!!!

******************************************************************

As a special incentive, the first 3 breaks that I do, I will be giving away 1 box worth of cards to club members ABSOLUTELY FREE. You don't even have to participate in the actual break! All you have to do is be signed up for that particular sport. And to show love to the Basketball folks, I will throw in a box for you too. The contents of the box will be random in team lots. Any unfilled spots will go to me. Also, since shipping will cost an arm and a leg, you must participate in a break to receive your free cards. OR you can send me money for shipping. Your choice.

Break is now open. Format and slot pricing are within the guidelines and the host has provided verification for the age requirement. Please do your own due diligence and only join if you are comfortable with dealing with the host.

I'm making up some of these rules as I go.

To keep the list updated and to allow for people to join in the event the club fills up...here's a new rule:

1) You must participate in at least 1 group break per every 4 breaks. Meaning, if you miss 4 breaks in a row, your spot in the club will be surrendered to members on the waiting list.

This may never become an issue if we don't fill up the 30 spots, but I just wanted to throw this out there....just in case. Who knows.

Now that familar names are joining, I'm in! Mostly collect baseball but also some basketball and football. I would however opt out of hockey breaks.

I also vote Finest Baseball for first break.

Thanks

This may never become an issue if we don't fill up the 30 spots, but I just wanted to throw this out there....just in case. Who knows.

I need to tweak this rule...

If you join the club, but only collect one sport, please let me know. I won't count sports you don't collect against you. An example, let's say JohnDoe only collects Baseball, but I do Baseball Break, Football Break, Hockey Break, Basketball Break, Baseball Break...only the baseball breaks count towards the 1 of 4 JohnDoe needs to participate in maintain his Club status. If you collect all sports and you miss 4 breaks, I will give up your spot to someone on the waitlist.

Fair? If this club picks up steam, I may add more spots, so this may be a non-issue. But I wanted to lay down this rule just incase.


I also wanted to add one other clarification with regards to why I setup my breaks the way I do.

Player drafts take a very long time to do. Because of this, I try to avoid player drafts. Player drafts also tend to have 60% players collectors don't care about. So unless you end up in the top 25% of the picks, the value is just not there. Then you have people trying to dump off their picks or don't participate in the draft. It's just not fun. Not to mention, sorting for a player draft takes a lot of time...something I don't have a lot of.

Most of the drafts I host are hit or team style drafts. The reason I do this is to add value to late draft picks. To give you an example. Let's say we're opening a case of 2011 Topps Finest Baseball. I pull Hosmer Auto, Pineda Auto, and some low numbered Parallels of Cano, Jeter, and ARod. I typically put any parallels that are not 1 of 1 into the "team lot". By doing so, that team lot gains instant value. It's not an auto, but it has 3 good vet parallels. When it comes time to draft, it's possible that the team lot will go higher than 75% of the autos. Also, by doing the team lot, if you focus on a specific team, you get all of the prospects/rookies for that team....good or bad.

I realize people do not like change. Most of the group breakers on this forum stick to the traditional breaks. Team, Player, Hit. And good for them. But I'm trying to provide an alternative. My slot pricing may be higher and the methodology might be unconventional, but my goal is to make the breaks fun and provide value to everyone participating.

Anyway, I hope I didn't scare anyone away.

I really like the idea of doing a hit draft with the team lots (outside of hits) as a slot.

I mainly collect baseball, but I wouldn't for sure say no to football/basketball/hockey break. Think it would just depend of the format of the break. Thanks for putting this together!

No problem. I have a football break up right now. 2 cases of 2011 Topps Chrome Football Hit/Team Snake Draft Break. The link is in one of the earlier post in this thread.
