Hi again everyone and welcome to 2009! We have a tight turnaround this month to get us back on schedule so please make note of the dates listed below and as usual if you are planning on dropping, changing, or adding a team please let me know so I can keep the list as accurate as possible.

We will run the group the same as last month where the cost is $50 to purchase your team ($48 for each additional) but also after the team selections are all made and we draw closer to the break date, we will have an optional paid-draft system in which you can pick up any remaining teams for just $20 per team (in a draft format). That means you could select one team at full price and draft another 3 and end up averaging just $27.50 per team! Here is the product list for January (should be looking at over 60 hits!);

2008 Cosigners
2008 Stadium Club
2008 SPx
2007 Bowman Sterling
2007 Bowmans Best
2005 Donruss Champions

The details:
Cost: $50 per team ($48 each addtl) and $20 draft options
Payment Deadline: Jan 18th
Break Date: Jan 24th

Here is our list of participants. Please check in to make sure to let me know if you are wanting to change, add, or drop any team(s).

Sorry about this guys but I've had to make an executive decision on the boxes as Blowout and DACardworld were both out of 07SPx so I switched to 08 SPx and then changed the 08 Bowman Sterling to an 07 Bowman Sterling to even out the years. Hope this is still OK with everyone...

We'll need to fill quite a few draft slots to cover the current list as I was hoping for an extra participant or two but I think we'll still make it. Once payments are in I will set up the draft order on random.org and when your pick comes up you can either pass or elect to take another team at the discounted price of $20.

Ok guys...the optional draft for extra teams (remember it costs $20 per extra team) will start tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10am(ct). I will be in and out that day so if I apologize if I fall a bit behind on updating the list. I will PM or email everyone so with this draft we will enforce a strict 3 hour timelimit from the start at 10am until 10pm at night. If we are not done then we will start the clock again at 8am(ct) on Thursday. At any time you are encouraged to PM or email me a list of your preferences as you don't want to get passed up by not responding in the allotted 3 hours. I apologize about the tough stance on the timelimit but I will be out of town starting early Friday AM until Sat evening so I need to have the teams all finalized by Thursday evening before I leave.

We had a couple people drop out so we need to have a strong draft to keep all the boxes in the break. We actually need 16 teams drafted so I am hopefull that everyone sees a team or two they want. I'll do my part to pick up 3 or 4 if possible but I can't cover them all so depending on if we end up short we may need to drop a box.

quick question:
You said the draft order will be posted at 10 AM. I leave at 8 AM, so I wont even know if I will be close to picking or not. Is everyone that isnt on the computer on a hourly basis supposed to send a list in, or what is the expectations?

I know it's a tough timeline but for now the best thing would be to PM or email me with whatever teams you may want if they happen to be available.

The list of available teams will be posted with the draft order in a couple minutes.

Ok...6pm and I don't think Tileman has had a chance to check the thread yet. You are still welcome to select a team no matter when you check this as you never lose your ability to pick...it's just that others may sneak in some picks ahead of you if their turn comes up.

Speaking of which... Prophecy Guy is now on the clock until 9pm(ct).

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…
