Default GROUP Break Series 4 ideas ready. LOOK and Let me know

OK. The break can be done in 1 of 2 ways.

Break #1 idea
5 slots per box which includes
1. Auto
2. Auto
3. Relic
4. Relic
5. Any Non Auto/relic #/d cards
$13.50 for first slot $12 each additional. Per Box which includes paypal,shipping,supplies

$50 box / 5 = $10
Plus .70 Paypal
.55 Supplies
2.25 Shipping

= 13.50 for First Slot

or
Break #2 idea
10 Person Draft Pick Case bust
Random numbers are drawn 1 through 10 and that sets the picking order for the HITS from the boxes. I figure there are easily 10 Bigger names of the fighters/personalities that sell well. So the order would go
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,1,2,3,4,etc.... Until the names are all drawn.
This would just include the Hits (Autos,relics,#/d parralels) Unless you request other cards from the set.
I was not going to include base,inserts and Gold cards to keep shipping and sorting down to a minimum.
So once all the hits from the 12 boxes are sorted the 10 Group Break Members start choosing the cards they want determined by the draft #. So if you are drawn #1 and we pull a Book card.... It is yours.
Slots for this are $59 for first slot and $56 for each additional which includes shipping,paypal,supplies.

Case price $525/10= 52.50 (Even though I paid $750 per case on these)
Plus
Supplies .85
Shipping $3.50
Paypal 2.15
= $59 first Slot

I can do the case live on Wednesday Oct 6th around 6,7,8 Central time?

LET ME KNOW IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED ASAP in Group break 1 or 2 idea.

BREAK WILL BE STREAMED LIVE ON USTREAM


Let me know if anyone is interested.
Thank you
Frank

Never done this before but have seen a bunch of threads on it. Is there a place I can go to see how it works? Ive read the FAQ's and that seems to only be for the people who are putting them on. All I know is I pay you money and you do the break and I get certain cards. Is there any other explanation? I would definately be interested in doing this one though!

Ok. I have figured out how to stream the break live on Ustream.
Now we just need to get some interested in this and figure out the best way to break it down.
This is a breakdown per case
12 box hobby case includes

2 Autos per box with 1-2 bonus TUF On Card Autos (24-26 Autos)
2 Relics per box (24 Relics)
1-2 numbered parallel cards per box (12+) This includes 1/1,Ruby /8,/88,/188 for all but Autos and Relics
Insert cards 12+ per box (144+) Includes Bloodlines,Fight Posters, Greats of game,Pride & Glory
Base Cards Including SSP Nickname cards (Going to be a large Heavy Lot)


From that I do know how to make it fair and keep the cost down for slots.
I thought maybe do random pulls for every 2 or 4 boxes at a certain cost.
I am still trying to figure out the details.
I would kind of like to do a random box or 2 live to get a feel for it. Anyone that is interested let me know if you would like to do a random pack or random hit draw for about $18 per slot (which includes supplies,shipping,paypal fees)
I could put a box (16 packs) into a bag and randomly draw 4 packs per slot.
I am just thinking out loud.

Ok. Post updated with 2 Break ideas. I would like to do this soon. Can break case (or even 2 with enough interest) on Wednesday night or I can break individual boxes anytime on Ustream if I can fill box slots.
Thank you

i am interested in this but isn't the price way to high? blowout has boxes at 42 dollars a piece right now and your idea one comes out to about 75 dollars a box with what you are charging per slot. if im not mistaken we are not allowed to make money off of group breaks it is illegal per the group break rules.

And don't you need to post it in the Testing GB section and have it approved first?

I am not looking to make money on this. I paid $750 per case before they were released. I am going to lose a ton of money on these cases.
I have lowered the price for both breaks. If you factor in Top loads,shipping and paypal it would be about $50 a box for the individual box breaks.

Also, I started the post in this section because it is viewed more often than the Group break section. I am trying to get an idea of interest and then go from there.

I just want these damn cases gone but also would like to see them opened.

i hope you can recover some money we were just people interested but also want to see the rules followed and people who are not aware of how group breaks are handle get treated fairly. when people pre order product they always take a chance on either the product increasing in value or possibly tanking...this product has tooken a dive in the wrong direction.

I completely understand. I am one of the original members of the boards. I am not looking to screw anyone at all. I am not happy with Topps and their lack of response to this product and just really want to be done with it.
I started a Testing the Waters post and will wait to see if it is approved. I would really like to get these busted and move on.

Group break approved. Check the Testing the waters in the group break section.
Let me know who is in and maybe we can roll with a case on Wednesday night.

Thank you
