Default Will somebody host a A&G break this year?

I'd do it myself, but I haven't been around long enough to develop the reputation.

Can't host yet, but I would definitely participate in any/all A&G group breaks. I think a multiple case hit draft would be really interesting, pitting the high-end baseball autos against the high-end non-baseball autos (KATE UPTON vs. YU DARVISH -- who do YOU pick?).

Let's do this!

i would love to host, but i have a 5 case break of tier one that just filled, the two products are releasing only 3 weeks apart.

allen and ginter is a tough break

if i could suggest a format it would be a 1 slot, 2 case break, snake draft for hits.
all the hits from case 1 get labelled case 1, all the hits from case 2 get labeled case 2

so 36 slots for 2 cases, picks for case one go 1-36 and picks for case two go 36-1, with the base being evenly distributed between participants.

just a thought.

Hello good people! Here is a last-ditch effort to gauge interest levels on this product, which looks better and better as we get close to hobby release. Alas, I cannot host, but with Topps' recent announcement of dual bat knob booklets (Per Topps Twitter: 2012 A&G Dual Bat Knob Booklets) and likely a few more surprises to come, perhaps there are a few more as stoked as I am and we can get a host to step forward!

So whaddya say?

I could possibly beable to host this if we have enough interest

Question how would you guys want the spots? How many cases?
To make it cheaper I could do it this way:

30 team spots (per case so say 3 cases would be 90 slots)
1 non sport spot per case
1 other sports besides baseball spot per case
1 box topper spot case

Just throwing out ideas...lmk and I can submit later today

Has a team/hit draft hybrid ever been attempted before? Consider this:

1 case = $1050
3 hits/box = 36 hits/case
30 team spots (including minis, rookies, etc.)
1 miscellaneous spot (non-sport insert cards, etc.)
1 box loader spot

$1050 / 68 spots = $15.44/spot without PP/shipping

You could also double the price and snake it so that the last person doesn't get hosed.

I understand that this is ostensibly a lot of sorting and a lot of work for the host, but it could also be a lot of fun and seems to be a pretty good way to keep slots down.

Regardless of the exact format, I would like to do more than 2 cases...that's easy to say as a participant though, and not the host
