Default Big Boy Bowman Break Club: looking for members

This is an information and member signup thread

We are looking for a few (5-10) good members to break bowman hobby, jumbo, chrome, or draft cases.. The idea is to spread the wealth and keep opening product. The cost per slot is expected to be 300-400$ a slot but with less members to split the autos and base slots.

For example 2 cases of 2011 bowman hobby and 2 cases of 2011 bdpp would be 295$ for a slot(based on 10 slots) prior to fees and you are gauranteed a top 10 card!

After I get a head count and gather interest we could come up with other ideas. Like selling the base/inserts to roll over for the next break

As far as hosting, I'm happy to do it. We could rotate hosting responsibilities if members wanted. We could contract out the breaking responsibilities as well!

Please post your thoughts or just sign up!
Thanks
Jared

I think this a pretty unique idea, but I do have a question (maybe it's obvious and I'm just missing it). How will the slots be divided/drafted during each break? Will we have a mod random the list each time, or something similar to that or have our own way of randomizing order?

Also possibly interested.... Will there be a random/draft per break, or per case?... Need to iron out the details.

Id be intererested, and probably would be OK with hosting as well if no one else wanted to do it - especially if we are not sorting all the base, vet crap

I'm interested in the group breaks.

And i'm also interested in buying all chrome/base outside of Autos and Refractors.

Perfect solution. Break product. Sort autos/refractors/chrome prospects. The other giant pile goes to Major_League [as long as he promises to use his US address]

Nice!!! I wasn't sure when this would have been approved!!

This would be a group, so we could vote on what we want... Like a 3 team(10 people) snake draft or hit draft with every auto/ref above blue/ team lots as slots.

Looks like we will take the first ten that sign up for the group

I will clean up the thread when I get home later

Mgugs, you want to host and be in this or just host??

I can host if approved or we could alternate!

Thanks crew
Jared

the way i would propose is a different random team per case or a re-random of draft position each case.. the idea being again that we spread the wealth rather than someone having the nationals for all the cases

we have 5 in and a couple maybes!!

How often are you thinking we would break? Monthly, quarterly, as new products come out?

You can count me in. Will just need to sell more stuff if it's going to be a couple hundred beans per month.

Breaks to be every 8-12 weeks, more can be done at the discretion of the group

Looks like we have enough guys for sure... I will put up our first break for approval

Well looks like there aren't any cases of bdpp

The first break looks to be a return to 2011 bowman

3 cases of 2011 bowman hobby 695 x 3= 2087.85
1 case of 2011 bowman jumbo 1195 x 1= 1195.95
Total= 3283.80 x 1.029 + 0.29=3380
Supplies/Shipping 10$ a slot
Looking 348 a slot/10 slots

I thought a team draft would be easy, snaking back... The draft order of case 1 and 3 would be randomized and cases 2 and 4 would be the reverse of that random draft order

Thoughts crew?

10 slots would be uneven. Isnt there 30 teams plus a USA cards? Making it 31 slots?

If you had 10 participants with 30 teams, every participant would get to draft 3 teams each. Leaving out any non team cards.

Id be interested in joining a break like that

Why not do 2012?

If forum rules allow I would just post this in the baseball talk section, not many people check the group break often. I bet those last 3 would fill pretty quick.

Happy to do 2012, 2011 or a mix of both! I think the value of 2011 at 695 vs 2012 at 825 was the kicker for me! I just want bust some ... With regards to the USA or non team hits, if it's a team draft those will be randomed... If its a hit draft with lots, they will be hits
