Default An idea: Blowout Season Tickets

Just an idea, feel free to ignore.

A lot of people here love to get in on box-breaks and case-breaks. So what if Blowout offered "season tickets?" You'd pay a large chunk upfront to buy your team of choice, then BO would bust one box/case of every product it stocks for that season, and sends you a package every month or so with your cards. It would be an awesome way to build a PC of a rookie that year + you could get some awesome veteran stuff.

Anyways, happy Saturday everyone.

That is an awesome idea. Although it would be pricy I think many would do it. I would certainly for the Eagles.

I'm only interested in a select few products, so I'd say nay. Now if you can get me my team in Houdini's 20 case TC, Contenders and 10 Case NT...I might be interested.

That is a pretty cool idea. Probably wouldn't get in it, but I am sure there are quite a few who would.

And HURRAY for POLLS!

I personally wouldn't do it but I could see it working if:
-The total value of the cases being broken is specified prior to purchasing a slot
-The team prices vary based on value, but you can pick your team

I would assume that there might possibly be teams not bought?

It's a good idea, but I wonder if they would be willing to incur the risk. My guess is Chrome with a similar configuration as last year will start at $90-$100 a box. If 1 or 2 of the quarterbacks, hypothetically speaking, go on a Foles like streak the price of the product will shoot up. However, that fluctuation can't be captured for season ticket holders. Come NT release time they may have forecasted $500 a box for something that ends up being $1000 because a rookie wins the NC.

Lot of work on their part to make sure it is profitable or even breakeven such as determining MSRPs and player performance fluctuations.

Statistics and forecasting is one of my favorite pass times they can hire me!

Awesome to see how many collectors would be on board with this. Maybe Blowout will take note...
