Default 08/09 Ultimate Basketball

Hey All,
Just seeing if anyone would be interested in an 08/09 Ultimate Basketball Group break. This will be a slot break - no teams! I want everyone to have a shot at getting a hit. I will not be included with this break. This is for you guys. Hope this has some good stuff in it! Last year the breaks were pretty good.

I have a webcam and this will be live streaming. Probably sometime in the area of 8 CST (or whatever works for everyone if this fills up)

Updated Pricing --- (NEW!)
1 - $88
2 - $175
3 - $262
then 86$ for each additional there after...



16 slots (15 hits plus 1 base - other extra hits will be randomized)

If anything, I would see one extra hit ouf of the case. But you never know.

I tried to get some more information from UD about print runs, and they would only state that it would be just like last years. Which means about 1000 cases. or 15,000 boxes(packs as i see it). But we'll see. I think they're sold out though because the LCS's distributor in New York said they can't get anymore.

Once enough interest is gathered, i'll post paypal address and slots, etc..

Which option would you prefer? 16 or 18 slots?

I would be down for 1 possibly two. I would want the 16 slots. Nobody is going to want to pay $70 for base cards. You might want to think about getting rid of base and randomizing them.

I agree, those cards do look nice but those are all pretty much case hits.. There's going to be a lot of Morris Almond and Sonny Weems autos in there too. Sonny Weems haunts me!

Well, the lot of .. lesse... 3x15 = 45 cards... would probably get at least 50$ on the bay, if not more depending on the players. Especially for set colectors. Some of the base includes non auto rookies as well. Don't think they include mayo,rose, etc, however.

But i'll do the 16 slot variation

I would be in for 2 slots as well. I wouldn't mind hosting my 1st break here soon, but don't know when a guy has enough credibility to do so?

Pricing is skyrocketing on this release - upper deck is supposedly releasing numbers for cases on this products soon and it is way SP'd. Prices have jumped dramatically all across the place. If interest is enough, this needs to be secured now or it'll be too pricey. Slots jumped 10$ each due to demand.

red48, it looks like this one isn't going to get off the group. Shoot me a PM if you want it opened back up. Thanks!
