LETS GIVE THIS A TRY AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS:
NY's MEGA College Football 2 Case Break of 2009 Press Pass Legends and 2008 Press Pass Signature Edition (200+ HITS!!) ON CARD AUTO BONANZA!!: (MINIMUM OF 152 On Card Autos!!!!)
Time to try something new. Also 200+ hits....WOW!! I will be ordering the cases Monday (with my own cash - tax refund!!! biggrin.gif ) so we have a week to fill this. The break will take place in three parts (see below). I broke it up for those who want to try by college team, those who want to stick with NFL, and then 4 leftover boxes from the two cases to do however we want to live the day of for anyone who wants to join and pay on the spot. More details below on these breaks will happen.

2009 Press Pass Legends Case (12 Boxes - 84 Hits - 72 On-Card Autos):
Configuration: 12 boxes per case. 18 packs per box*. 5 cards per pack.
* Each box contains 3 six-pack mini-boxes.
CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS:
- Five On-Card Autographs (PRESS PASS HAS STATED 6 and THAT IS WHAT HAS BEEN COMING OUT) & One Game-Used Jersey In Every 18-Pack Box!
- At Least Two Autographs Will Be Legends!
- 1 Of 1 Press Plates - At Least One Per Case! (PRESS PASS HAS STATED 2 PER CASE)
- Seven Levels Of Autographs And Three Levels Of Jersey Cards!

2008 Press Pass Signature Editions (120 HITS with minimum 80 On-card Autos):
Configuration: 10 boxes*/12 packs/5 cards
PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS:
* An autograph or rare game-used collegiate jersey card in every hobby pack!
* At least 8 autographed cards in every hobby box!
* TEAMMATES AUTOS - Dual autographed insert, featuring 2 rookies from the same school!
* GRIDIRON GRAPHS - Hobby exclusive autographed insert, featuring signatures from the top 2008 rookies!
* Seven levels of autographs to collect!
* Five levels of game-used collegiate jersey cards, including Premium and Autographed Edition parallels.

EACH OF THE TWO BREAKS IS SET UP SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SO READ EACH FOR DETAILS. EACH BREAK #1 and #2 WILL BE FOR 5 Boxes of 2009 PP Legends and 4 Boxes of 2008 Press Pass Signature Edition. BREAKs WILL TAKE PLACE NEXT SATURDAY SO ALL PAYMENTS MUST BE ABLE TO BE MADE BY FRIDAY MARCH 6 OR SAT MORNING MARCH 7.


BREAK #1 - RANDOM DRAFT BY NFL TEAM - $35-$60 (see below):

5 Boxes of 2009 Press Pass Legends (35 Hits!)
and
4 Boxes of 2008 Press Pass Signature Edition (48 Hits!)
for a total of 83 Guaranteed Hits (62 autos-most if not all on card!!)


Details of Break:

The break will require 16 members. A base spot to participate will be $35. The team draft order will be determined via random.org. For those who would like better chances at at higher draft spot, you can pay an additional amount ($2.50 for each additional spot in the random) up to $25 for a higher likelyhood of obtaining a better draft spot in the randomization. A different random will occur for each draft position 1-16. For example, I would choose to pay the full $60 = ($35 base spot + $25($2.50x10)) and my name will go into the random 11 times. Someone who does not feel that they need a high spot to draft their team can only pay the $35, and will still be in the random (and could end up with #1 draft spot) but would be less likely as they will have there name in the randomization only once. After randoming for Draft Spot #1, all of the names in the random for the holder of the #1 pick will be removed, and we will do the same for #2 and so on untill we go all the way through spot #16. It will be similar to the NBA style of determining there college draft order. I think it would be a lot of fun to do and the random process would be just as exciting as the break. It also provides opportunities for members to pay a lower amount and get there team that may not have as many good rookies at the bottom of the draft. We will need to have 110 of the bonus random spots sold to make the break work. If for some reason we go over this, we will limit the number per spot to less than 10. If we are under we will to figure out a way to make up the difference.

In the draft order for round two, all members will have equal chance in the random (one name for each member will go into the random and we will random for round 2 only once). Please let me know if you have any questions.

Cards for all rookies will go to the team that drafted them. Cards for all legends/stars will go to the team they played the longest for in the NFL. Any hits with multiple teams will go the the team on the top or left of the card. Any other players not associated with an NFL team will be randomed.

List #1 (PAID) - Total bonus draft spots (110 needed - 16 taken = 94 left):

1.) NYMETSJETS - $35 (+10=11 draft spots for random $25) = $60
2.) Prophecy Guy - $35 (+2=3 draft spots for random $5) = $40
3.) Prophecy Guy2 - $35 (+0=1 draft spot for random) = $35
4.) quik59sat - $35 (+2=3 draft spot for random) = $40
5.) Booth9919- $35 (+2=3 draft spot for random) = $40
6.) - $35

11.) - $35
12.) - $35

BREAK #2 - RANDOM DRAFT BY COLLEGE TEAM, THEN BY STATE ($25-$50:)

5 Boxes of 2009 Press Pass Legends (35 Hits!)
and
4 Boxes of 2008 Press Pass Signature Edition (48 Hits!)
for a total of 83 Guaranteed Hits (62 autos-most if not all on card!!)


The break will require 20 members. A base spot to participate will be $25. The team draft order will be determined via random.org. For those who would like better chances at at higher draft spot, you can pay an additional amount ($2.50 for each additional spot in the random) up to $25 for a higher likelyhood of obtaining a better draft spot in the randomization. A different random will occur for each draft position 1-20. For example, I would choose to pay the full $50 = ($25 base spot + $25($2.50x10)) and my name will go into the random 11 times. Someone who does not feel that they need a high spot to draft their team can only pay the $25, and will still be in the random (and could end up with #1 draft spot) but would be less likely as they will have there name in the randomization only once. After randoming for Draft Spot #1, all of the names in the random for the holder of the #1 pick will be removed, and we will do the same for #2 and so on untill we go all the way through spot #20. It will be similar to the NBA style of determining there college draft order. I think it would be a lot of fun to do and the random process would be just as exciting as the break. It also provides opportunities for members to pay a lower amount and get there team that may not have as many good rookies at the bottom of the draft. We will need to have 138 of the bonus random spots sold to make the break work. If for some reason we go over this, we will limit the number per spot to less than 10. If we are under, we will need to figure out a way to make up the difference.


The college draft will be four rounds:
In the draft order for round two, all members will have equal chance in the random (one name for each member will go into the random and we will random for round 2 only once). The second round will be drafted by college teams as well. After round #2, there will be 40 college teams taken. Round three draft order will be snake style from round two, so the last pick in round #2 will have first pick in round #3. Round three will different as we will no longer pick schools, but pick states. So we then go through and pick states and you will receive any cards from schools in the state you pick that were not on a team selected in round 1 or 2. Round four will be snake style from round three for states as well. Due to time, we will cut the state draft off here and any hits from the remaining 10 states will be randomized among all members.Please let me know if you have any questions as it may sound complicated.

Cards for all players will go to the school shown on the card or the state the school is associated with. Anything that is not associated with a school will be randomed.

List #1 (PAID) - Total bonus draft spots (138 needed - 12 taken = 126 left):

1.) NYMETSJETS - $25 (+10=11 draft spots for random $25) = $50
2.) NYMETSJETS2 - $25 (+2=3 draft spots for random $5) = $30
3.) Prophecyguy - $25 (+0=1 draft spots for random) = $25
4.) - $25

This might be better by NFL teams-at first the college idea interested me but I think you would get more interest doing it by NFL teams.

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…

Sounds good guys! I'm still thinking about how we should do this one to keep it interesting and have a good chance of filling. Sounds like most would prefer NFL teams, which is fine, but may look into incorporating some different wrinkles into this one. Look for more later today and if anyone else has any input, let me know.

I would go by either conference, or drafted NFL team.
If you go by conference, make the SEC more expensive than the Big 12 more expensive than the etc...

What kind of price point are we looking at here? I may be interested.

Right now, if somehow we were able to fill a normal 16 spot break, it would cost around $120 per spot. I fear that this would be to much too have a decent chance of filling all spots so am leaning towards somehow breaking it up to make spots more affordable, or somehow varying from the standard 16 member break. Still open to any ideas, have a few things I'm thinking about but not sure yet.

Alright, changes have been made to make this affordable and and enjoyable break. The random determination and draft will be just as fun as the break! Pricing can be low if you wish it to be or higher if you want a better chance at a "good" team. Please let me know any questions. BREAK WILL TAKE PLACE NEXT SATURDAY AFTERNOON. So everyone must be able to pay by then and be either present to draft then or give me proxy lists of your team preferences (unless we can fill quick and start draft in this thread priot to Saturday). This should be a lot of fun to do and exciting for all. Will be a lot of product to open with a ton of hits so lets get this filled this week!

When you are joining, please put which break you want to join, as well as how many extra draft spots you want with your spot.

I'll start it off here:
I'll take,
Break #1, 1 spot with 10 extra random spots = $60,
Break #2, 1 spot with 10 extra random spots = $50,
and
Break #2, 1 spot with 2 exta random spots = $30
