THE BIG BREAK !!

Now with 21 of the 39 boxes being Football - All Exquisite and National Treasures!!

**** Please note there was a change in format so if you have not reread this please do. Basketball is no longer part of the break and we have added another case of 2007 National Treasures and a mini case of Prime Cuts BB for a total of 39 loaded boxes (21 Football and 18 Baseball) and this way each box is loaded. This means you could be getting a box of NT for as little as $130 or $140 as you can bet there will be some loaded Prime Cuts boxes that will go very early in this draft causing the FB boxes to drop quite low.*****

This is your chance to be included in TCC's Biggest Multi-Sport Group Break EVER! A chance to put collectors of a couple different sports together in a break that will encourage trading of slots and strategy aplenty to make sure you get the box you want...and a break that allows you to pick and choose from among 39 high end loaded boxes to select the box that you want rather than be at the mercy of the pack gods by being stuck with whatever cards you get in a box if you were to purchase it on your own!

No, this is not overcompensation for any personal shortcomings (I figured I'd get that joke out of the way before someone eluded to that) but I feel it's time for the biggest break ever organized by the Boxbreakers group! Close to $10,000 in cards in one group break covering two sports of Football and Baseball. This Multi-Sport break will be a totally different format and will not be divided by teams. Here's how it works (with props to JRThurmer for the draft idea). You participate in the break by purchasing a draft slot ranging from $115 for 39th pick to the number 1 pick at $610. Once all slots are filled and payments received we bust 39 high end boxes (product list posted below) from among the 2 sports listed. Once all are broken and highlights of the contents listed, you then get to pick which box you want to claim based on when it's your pick in the draft to select. The box you claim is yours including every card in it. Strategy plays a part here as well. Because we will have boxes from 2 sports included you may not know if the person ahead of you will take the BB box you really want and it will hopefully promote some opportunities to "trade up" if there's a box you really want to go after. If mostly FB guys are at the top the best BB box might fall all the way down to pick 10 or 12? You just never know which makes this not only a fun break to watch but also a fun draft experience! You think the top slot is spendy? Can you imagine having the top pick and choosing between a Gehrig or Ruth Cut Auto, a RC Auto Patch of Bush, Cutler, Peterson, Ryan, Forte, or any FB RC star of the last 3 years? Not to say we'll hit all those as every case can't be the best ever but what are the odds that we won't hit something spectacular in at least a few of these cases? A third of the slots are priced less than it costs to buy the cheapest box on the product list. Heck if you go out an buy a box of Exquisite or 08NT your already paying what it would cost to get a very high pick to get a choice in which box you will get rather than being stuck with the one you buy by yourself. One recommended strategy is to take a fairly high slot and combine it with a lower end slot in case you see a box you want to go after and with the extra slot you may have an easier time trading up to get it? Or if you are targeting a certain product you may want to be realistic and pick a draft slot that is priced around the same as that product costs. In other words...don't expect to pick up an Exquisite box with a $200 slot. It may happen, but be realistic about the slot you choose. The sum of funds collected equals the cost of the boxes plus $10 per slot for paypal and shipping fees to ship the whole contents of the box. To save on shipping they will be sent without the extra packaging of the larger box. In other words you'll get every card in the box but may not get the actual box packaging. All the breaks will appear on Youtube and then will be posted with scans of each boxes highlights on TCC followed by a big draft based on what slots you have purchased. I realize with the new format there may be questions so please let me know if I can clarify anything. Here are the hard details;

Cost: Varies. Slot prices are listed below.
Payment Deadline: March 15th
Break Schedule:
Thursday 8:30pm(ct): We'll break the 2 cases of 2007 National Treasures
Saturday 8:30pm(ct): We'll break the 9 boxes of Exquisite and 08 NT

2006 Exquisite Football (3 Boxes)
2007 Exquisite Football (3 Boxes)
2007 National Treasures - 2 cases (12 Boxes)

No, I have never done a USteam break due to all the clarity and cutting in and out issues that goes with it. It will be a Youtube break as are all the higher end breaks that we do.

Should be a fun one and the same cost as if you went out and bought one of these boxes on your own...but this way you get choices as to which box you want instead of being stuck with what you get when you buy it by yourself!

Ok guys...if you haven't reread the initial post please do so as this break has been changed to a two sport break (Football and Baseball) and each box now will be totally loaded. We added in another case of 2007 National Treasures and a mini case of Prime Cuts so we now have 41 boxes in all with 21 of them being Exquisite or National Treasures FB boxes! Also with 20 boxes of Prime Cuts...if you've seen some of these box breaks they have an amzing product with some huge huge hits so you can bet there will be some Prime Cuts boxes picked early which will mean you may (I can never guarantee what box someone ahead of you will select)... but you may end up with a National Treasures box choice all the way down at the $130 slot!

The break is composed of a product list that will help ensure everyone gets a great box but that the best boxes with AMAZING cards go to someone that paid more...and if there is such a thing as a dud box it will go to someone that paid about half of the usual box price with $115 being the lowest slot price.

All members have been contacted and it looks like almost all are staying in so lets fill this up and pull some amazing cards and have a fun draft as well.
