So we have 1 vote each for 28 teams and the 29 teams. I kinda have to agree with dhcollecting on the 29 teams gives us the extra money.
Looks like Limited, Supreme or Triple Threads will be our options unless somebody else has anything to offer?

Im glad I was able to help spread the word!


This is my Vote:

29 Slots which will get Randomized prior to each break that will decide our Draft Order.

That will give us $1450.00 Each Month which will allow us many options in regards to what we break.

I still believe we should random off all hits from Teams that where not drafted between the participants that went hit-less for the break. I think that way we limit the chances of someone going hit-less for extended amount of time.

All Hits/#ed Cards/Inserts/Rookies will be shipped shortly after the break and if at any point the participants wants their Base they can work out the shipping with our Host.

We attempt to use all funds available leaving little to know rollover

Majority Vote decides the Case Every Month....(No Bitch*ng!)


*If someone bails without a legit excuse they get a Negative from the Host

If we can get 29 people involved let's do the 29 team random and get better product on a monthly basis!

I say we do the 28 teams and random hits from the undrafted 4 teams to hitless teams. If we're trying for 29 teams just to have more money then just keep all 32 teams (even more money). Just my 2 cents.

If we go with a cheaper case to start with we can use the left over to purchase a big lot of supplies, just a thought.

I guess my vote is 29 slots, random the teams each month. Random the last 3 to anyone that doesn't get a hit in each break. Depending on product I may want the base, willing to pay more for shipping.

PS. Will BO cut some deals since we are guar we are purchasing min 1450 in product every month? Over 17k for the year.

I will contact Pat after we are more situated and have an idea of what we want to start with. I'm sure they will give us some kind of deal. I will have to purchase supplies so that is going to cut into our funds for the 1st break unless everyone wants to add additional money for the 1st break. Like $60 instead of $50 should get us supplies for have the year lol

I've gotten 2 more people that would like to join which makes them 29 and 30. Do we just go for the entire 32 teams?? Gives us an additional $150-$200 to break.

If we do 29 teams collectivetoys would be slot #29 and we would be full. If we do 28 he will be moved to the waiting/drop list along with gator-chomp

I would be in if there is a random every month with a draft to follow. It depends on the additional cost on whether or not I want base cards.

As with some others on here, I am a little leary since being burned by thechump but am interested in joining if their is a spot. My biggest hold-up now is if this is going to be random or draft. Wanted to get some opinions.

I understand that the draft adds a little time and their will be people complaining about their team if they don't draft in time but those people will find something to complain about regardless. As someone who is more interested in collecting for my pc rather than reselling, I hate randoms. The chance of getting a team you actually want is very small compared to if a draft is done. Also, if you only have 28 members, you don't have to decide ahead of time which teams to leave out. You just leave out the four that did not get drafted. If any hits come from those 4, you can random, or have a 29th spot that gets the 4 undrafted teams.

Anyone have any other opinions on this?

Questions and comments:

Question 1: How many hits per case of these? Only one I know is the Supreme, which would be 16 hits per. I prefer more bang for the buck which increases the chances of a hit per person to kick this off but hadn't considered the supplies issue until now.

Question 2: How are the supplies setup on Blowout? And what sort of supplies are you needing?

I just bought from this seller last week and received my purchase of 250 bubble mailers for 22.76 DLVD:

justpoundsandounces | eBay

Considering 29 people times 12 months we are looking at needing a max total of 348 Bubble mailers if you sent something to everyone every month. I almost want us to go with the cheaper supreme this month so that we have the supplies each month in hand and get past this and it seems like that's the best option to me.


Question 3: Did you see my offer to take two spots per month. Worse case for me is I have a $100 commitment to this group to satisfy which would be a box a month pretty much. If not that's cool with me, not sure what your thinking.


Question 4: Are we taking backups? We probably should have 3 on the ready in case someone can't break in a given month.

Thought...I see a few more people signed up for this. I think we should be good to go for the 29 teams idea unless my math is wrong. My vote is this and helps everyone. The 29th pick gets four teams. The last pick gets 4 teams no one wants and increases the odds of getting something. I don't want to mess around with randomizing the hits for those hit less, too much work to me to random etc. Everyone eligible for this..If you get the 29th pick you get the 4 remaining teams unpicked (Picks 29, 30, 31, and 32) and anything that comes from it. It's a reward for getting the worst teams. Probably wont be worth much but its better then a kick in the nuts when you get pick 29 right?

I think we have already progressed past this point and are just looking for people to join under the format we have in place.

His post does bring up something we haven't discussed I've seen fudge up a break a time or two.

This is a team drafted break. We need to establish now that there is going to be a time limit for drafting. One break I was in recently didn't have that auto pick rule in place and slowed the draft down by days. We should be reasonable about auto drafting of course but per the rules of the forum we would have to establish the auto drafting rule before we start a break, not during. I think 3 hours time limit is enough for drafting personally. As someone who's been auto drafted in the past I know it can suck but I also know when that happens you can trade teams etc. and fix the issues. My point is that this has to be established before the break, not during it.

It looks like we are back tracing a little here. Addicted I did see your offer to take 2 slots to help this move along since it stalled a bit but since then people have come aboard so I only have you down for your 1 original slot.
I have no problem doing the 29 slots I just need a majority vote as thoughts keep getting thrown out there.
If we are just doing the 29 slots we are at our max and have 1-2 back ups already.
I have no problem breaking whatever. I prefer the high end and Supreme is nice with the chance of getting something really nice.
Are we back to random or draft?? I thought most wanted random but it seems now people are switching to drafting??

Can you PM everyone or setup a poll to what they want as far as random or draft & what product.

I'm good with Random or Draft.
I'm good with Supreme
