Here is my paypal address:
elguapochico10@yahoo.com

Thanks to everyone who has provided their feedback so far. Group breaks will only work if people are interested in the boxes being broken. That is why I decided to get everyone's feedback before starting another group break. Here is the first group break we will be doing:

2008 Playoff Contenders : 4 boxes = 16 hits : $36 per spot
Each spot equals 1 picked and 1 random team
Raiders and Falcons are random

Here is how this and all my other breaks in the past have worked:
1. Once the break fills I will begin accepting payments (paypal preferred)
2. Once I have received payment from everyone I will do the random team video (via random.org). The teams will be posted in this thread and a video will be added to my youtube channel. I will also order the case/boxes at this point.
3. I usually like to create transactions with everyone after I receive their payments; that way I am not creating transactions with people who will eventualy drop out.
4. I will provide periodic updates about the estimated time of arrival for the case/boxes as well as the time and day I expect to break into the case/boxes.
5. I will have the breaks filmed (thanks to my wife) and posted on youtube directly following the break. I will also posts the hits of each box in this thread.
6. If any cards are represented by more than one team they will be randomed off on random.org most likely the day following the break. Also I take great care of the cards from the moment I pull them out of the pack. If any of your cards are damaged when you receive them I can guarantee you they were like that when they were pulled. I try my best to examine the hits when I first pull them out so the owner will know it was not something of my doing.
7. If the product contains an enormous amount of base cards I will ship out three duplicates of each. Any cards #'d higher than 100 will be shipped in team bags along with the base cards. Any cards #'d less than 100 and autographs will be shipped in penny sleeves and top loaders. Any jersey/patch cards will be shipped in magnetic protective cases. All of these items will then be placed in a bubble mailer and shipped as soon after the break as I am able to manage.
8. If you would like a delivery confirmation number on your package(s) all you have to do is ask. I will state however that I have shipped out close to 200 packages so far and every single one has been received by the correct owner. That being said, I still understand if you would like to take the extra precaution.

If you have any other questions that I have not already answered feel free to send me a pm.

Sorry penguin, jrthurmer has already claimed the ravens in all my future breaks. If there is another team you would be interested in let me know.

Sorry I guess I forgot to put in the original thread that I usually take the Cowboys. If there is another team you would be interested in let me know. Sorry about that.

My personal opinion is that Contenders looks like some 5yr old made the cards so I would be inclined to go with Premier. I like the way they look. Also, I know the Steelers and Texans are taken so I would have to be put on some sort of a waiting list, but I don't have a problem with that.

19th you feel like being generous?
Haymac you feel like being generous as well?

Thanks for the input. I would also like to do a group break of premier at some point. Whichever option gets the most interest is the one I will pursue first, but if there is enough demand to do one of the other one's I don't see any reason why I wouldn't be able to do that one as well. So far there are four people interested in the contenders and 1 interested in the premier. Keep the input coming guys!!! I'd like to do as many of these as we can; just not all at the same time!! I know my own limits as a group break host.

Whichever of the options comes to fruition, I'd still love to be on the waiting list for the Miami Dolphins!

Thanks,

The 1st rule of Group Breaks is that you do not message Prophecy Guy about your group breaks.

The 2nd rule of Group Breaks is that you do NOT message Prophecy Guy about your group breaks.

The 3rd rule of Group Breaks is that if you can’t take the time to spell out words like “you” or “for”, I can’t trust that you’ll take the time to take care of my cards.

The 4th rule of Group Breaks is that if you incessantly bump your group break thread after I’ve joined it, I will drop out rather than be an accessory to obnoxiousness.

More to come…

Thanks!

I'll get the ball rolling by suggesting that I still haven't had my fill of SP Rookie Threads yet, and would be in favor of the 3 box break version!

I would have no problem doing several of these group breaks down the road. It looks like the contenders has the most interest so far and then either premier or rookie threads. I haven't done any of these products yet so I would be excited to do any of them.

I'll go ahead and jump on the Titans one more time. They brought me luck of sorts in your SP Authentic break - got the Raiders in the random! (first time I've gotten Raiders - I now have had every team at some point EXCEPT the Chicago Bears....lol)

And if Miami opens up, I'd probably just keep both spots, at least for this month.

Thanks,
Prophecy Guy
