Too expensive of a gamble for my blood.

I tried the blind box lot awhile back and got hammered.

i dont know. i wasn't being real seriuos about a group break just typing out of my rear... but i would imagine that if the packs were packed randomly, then they could easily be picked out in handfuls and prepared for shipping right away.

if they weren't packed randomly.. then i guess a random number generator could be used as has been in previous group breaks.

I noticed it yesterday as well. It would take some time to rip 1000 packs. It would be a horrible collation though....LOL Imagine trying to put sets together with who knows what your gonna get.

Bingo! However, for someone who did shows, this could be a great pack out. Evan at 1.25 a pack you'll make 250 bucks

after pp fees and shipping fees, it'll bring you right back to just about even... but i think it would be a fun group break.. i jsut dont know if one would be able to drum up enough support to split 1000 packs

Capt...your taking pp at card shows...now thats an ambition level I'd like to match! The Group Break could be interesting, its low end enough that most could probably play 7 packs @ about 10 bucks (problem being thats about 143 slots).

the way some people buy up slots for group breaks, i think its possible...highly improbable.. but possible we can make a group break happen.

but its like holding pocket aces in poker.. you're either going to win big, or lose big (if you do one lot by yourself) lol

Well......I'm somewhat of a gambler, so I might be intrigued with a blind lot group break.

Then again I occasionally play my hold em hands blind....hhmmm maybe I'm better of watching from the sidelines lol

How about if each slot was a minimum of 5,10,15,20 packs per slot. You could either sort the slots by product, draw product slots out of a hat or have each product repeating(depending on how many products) for each pack per slot? just trying to make it more interesting if we do a group break.

well lets do some math for the hell of it. not sure that i want to do the break as I will be spending more time on the road for work in the next couple of months...but would still participate.

1029.99... case ground ship

1112.56.. amt the breaker needs to receive AFTER paypal fees (not incl shipping) in order to cover cost of case + 50 bucks for time/effort (adjustable to what everyone thinks is fair

hmm.. maybe 1.25/pack would work.

1000*1.25 = 1250.00-1112.56 = 137.44 to cover shipping costs (first class)

that might be cutting it close.

could always do 10 packs per lot for $15 bucks shipping included (100 total lots.. $1500-case cost-shipping fees rest going to the breaker.. not bad)??

i dont know. im jsut thinking freely. thoughts?

guess they don't have this anymore.. i wonder if they would do a 500 pack blind lot? i think there would be more interest at 500 bucks than 1000.. at least i would be more interested. be easier for a group break lol
