NY's March Box Break!: OK guys, this month I went with some boxes that you guys reccommended during February's break, as well as some others that I thought would be good to include to increase the number of overall hits so we can "spread the wealth". Again, spanned multiple years of product to get a good spread of rookie classes. Ended up going with and Upper Deck themed Smourgasbourgh (I'm about 100% sure I spelt that wrong...haha). Boxes for March are as follows:

Box 1: 2008 Upper Deck SP Rookie Threads - 10 Hits, from ATL Sportscards
Box 2: 2008 Upper Deck SPX - 10 Hits - from ATL Sportscards
Box 3: 2008 Upper Deck Premier - 6 Hits - From DA Cardworld
Box 4: 2008 Upper Deck SP Authentic - 3 Hits, from ATL Sportscards
Box 5: 2008 Upper Deck SP Authentic - 3 Hits, from ATL Sportscards
Box 6: 2007 Upper Deck SP Rookie Threads - 10 Hits, from ATL Sportscards
Box 7: 2007 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection - 12 Hits - From DA Cardworld
Box 8: 2007 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection - 12 Hits - From DA Cardworld
Box 9: 2007 Upper Deck Premier - 6 Hits, from ATL Sportscards
Box 10: 2007 Upper Deck SP Authentic - 2 Hits - From DA Cardworld


Team Selection:
Please read carefully. Borrowing some methods from Chris (crpalmi), the initial signup cost is $75 to claim a team. We will then have a paid-draft system to allow anyone with a fully paid slot have the opportunity to get additional team(s) for a discounted cost (starting at $25 for the rest of the teams other than the teams required to be drafted-see below). This system will help defer some of the cost of the three cases so your starting team’s fee is more affordable for those who are only interested in your selected team. This is an optional draft so you can decide when it's your turn to select an open team (and pay the fee) or simply pass. The draft order will be determined by random.org which will be performed live on USTREAM.tv.

Break Cost: My goal to cover the break cost of the boxes above is to collect around $1,560 (based on 16 initial member spots taken, if we can get back to there) which will cover all paypal fees, supplies and shipping. If by chance we are able to collect any additional funds beyond that (either from more initial spots or from paid draft) or pricing comes down, they would go right back into additional product for the break. Both the past two months we were able to get an extra box or upgrade a current box.All boxes will be purchases from BLOWOUTCARDS.COM first (if available), if not, then either DACardworld or Atlantasportscards!

The Break: Will occur live on USTREAM.TV at a later determined date, later in March. Pics of all hits will also be posted in the thread following the break. Here is the link to last month's break and January's three case break if you are curious:
NY's February Group Break
NY's January Tri-Case Break

Payment: Only paypal will be accepted and is due when break fills (for new members) prior to the random unless other arrangements are made with me. For all returning members, payment due on completion of the draft.

Paypal Address is tkdean@hotmail.com

Shipping: All cards will be shipping with top loaders, soft sleeves, team bags, etc. as you can expect from any decent break and will be shipped with delivery confirmation. I will only ship all superstar base cards this month unless requested otherwise this month as there are a couple of products with a lot of base.

Cards with multiple Teams: All cards will be given to the holder of the team shown on the card. Any with multiple teams on the cards will be randomized via random.org live on USTREAM.TV.

Now that that is out of the way……let's get some more members signed up this month. The more teams we fill, the more boxes we will be able to get. Don’t hesitate to PM me or post if you have any questions.

Have you guys down as back in. I just thought I'd mixed it up and throw in a 2005, but would be fine taking it out. I could probably take out the 2005 and one of the 2006 SPA and do a 2006 Ultimate Collection instead if you guys want. Had that in there originally but didn't know if that was a good value for what was in the boxes for $180. Let me know other ideas if you want to take out the 05 or one 05 and one 06 and pick a new box.

Chris, any particular reason your against the 2005. Haven't broken that product from 05 before, is it the product or just the cards/rookies from that year in general.

Have you down Deantap. Thanks. Blitz confirmed with Titans via pm, unless Bears open up then he will make the switch.

Any new members want to join the break this month?

The Bears will not be coming available, sorry Blitz! wink.gif

I am in with the Bears, but I, for one, would prefer more 2007 and 2008 product and less 2005, and 2006.

One of the few things worse then pulling a redemption.. is pulling an expired redemption. sad.gif

Didn't think the Bears would open up...haha. Thanks Tim.

I wasn't even thinking about the expired redemptions. Good point. I will also consider doing all 2007/2008 product if the group would prefer. I know a few members that would be looking for the 2006 rookies and might prefer to keep the 2006, to give up there spot, or switch teams. Please post if you would rather do all 2007 and 2008 or not. I will re-evaluate the boxes to be broken. For now, I will remove the 2005 box from the list and leave the $90 as open for a box TBD. Thanks.

######! Always worth a try. laugh.gif

I'm not too keen on the 05 product neither. My preference would be for majority 07 and 08 products but wouldn't mind seeing a couple of boxes of 06.

OK, decided to make the decision now rather than getting more confirmations and then trying to change things. I will be switching the break to all 2008/2007 products. Please let me know if this changes anything for anyone who has currently confirmed, but seems like most would be ok with this. Also took out the 08 Ultimate Collection box and switched to Boxes with more hits (just thought it was too risky to go with an $80 box with only one hit). We can possibly pick that as the last box (see below) if you guys want too.

The above box breakdown is also based on 18 initial members - so the last box #11 (current estimate of $80), could go up or down depending on how we fill up.

Lets get some more members signed up!

Eagles, Browns, Texans, Giants, Cheifs, Rams all available to name a few!

Yes, all members have been messaged. Waited till this morning to send PMs as I wanted to allow a couple days for some of you to find it first without having to hassle everyone with PMs right away. So hopefully we'll here from everyone soon.

Would also love to get some more members involved as some spots have opened up so if anyone else is interested or has any questions, let me know!

One more confirmation made via PM. Still quite a few outstanding so hoping to get some more in today. If not, all unconfirmed teams will become available tommorrow.

Other members who are interested can reserve the spots if they come open tommorrow. It will be first come first serve and you can go on waiting list today for them if you let me know. Please see initial post for teams already with pending waiting members.

Will be giving Todd (Tileman) and the Raiders some extra time as I know he has been out of town.
