The odds of you getting exactly the worst 6 cards out of the lot of 12:

1 in 11088.

Me too, that league is just BS.

Since all cards were supposed to be of equal SV, the winner should get to pick his, then 2nd place goes, then 3rd place.


I do a fantasy hockey league. It's a free league and I provide the prizes but it goes kind of like this:
Winner picks 2 prizes.
Then 2nd picks 2 prizes
Then 3rd picks 1 prize
Then 4th picks 1 prize
Then 5th picks 1 prize

In that order. If the winner picks a 20-pack of 1974 OPC commons over the Price patch auto, that's on him.



This SV league just seems like a way for the commish to rip off unsuspecting owners.

That would make rational sense. He had also talked about doing a live random of lots to be given out, but that never happened. I would've accepted that (although I think your method is the preferred/fair one), but that didn't even happen, and I just can't believe that what I was sent was random.

Why would anyone play fantasy baseball for a few lame cards? Whatever happened to cash?

My math gets 11/10000. Almost ten times your odds.

Yeah, I had it at 1/924, but with this screw job, who's really counting?

D'oh! Wrong formula.

Yes, 1/924.

The commish should be thanking you for not calling him/her out...along with the league. Congrats on winning but sorry you lost.

also, if there are 10 people and they each give $25 SV in cards shouldn't the total SV of all the cards add up to be $250?...adding up what you posted doesnt even equal half of that and I cant imagine they all added up to $250 even in the spring....seems like a few people gave $25 worth while the others just put in scrub cards.

Just a friendly bump to remind people to use discretion before joining a random SV/card BO fantasy baseball league...

Hey, I saw your post on the League I'm in. I fell pretty good about the members I'm dealing with. I fell your pain after reading your thread. Cards holding value could be an issue but obliviously what you received is less than poor. Thanks for the lookout and if you want to try again we welcome you.

I'm the commish of that other league, and the reason we are only doing a low value card league (5-10 dollars) is because some people cheat the system with higher value.
And as far as being welcome in our league, I'd first like to know why he is suspended

Wow, suspension must have just happened. I have read several post where people claim he's a good guy so that's why I extended the invite.
