Instead of having a huge box break thread for each break I do (I plan on doing tons) I want to have a running thread for ideas and suggestions for my LBBB!!!!!

My first break (1 x 2014 Elite, 1 x 2014 SPx) is ordered and should be broke this weekend!

So what better time than right now to start working out the kinks for our next endeavor! I need some feedback from everyone on this!


A few questions for you:

Is anyone interested in doing old school breaks? (i.e. 07 Classics, 09 Elite, etc)


Is $15 price range good for everyone?


Would anyone be interested in a lower budget break around the $10 per spot mark that would either be 2 cheaper boxes or just 1 regular box? (Ive done these before and they worked out pretty decent)



IMPORTANT QUESTION:

Would anyone be interested in donating unwanted hits, Rookies, or Numbered Cards for me to use as a background contest during my breaks? Again, this is something me and Richard used to do with the Snake thread (with a bit of spin adding the box breaks) but I think it would be fun.

Say you just a couple of numbered cards that you really don't want, donate them to the LBBB Card-Splosion!!!! Members of future breaks may get something randomly added to their lot. I may post up a "whats you best Box Break Pull" Contest.



You know me folks, I will spare no expense (within my abilities tongue.gif ) to make TCC more fun and enjoyable for everyone!

For football, I would prefer newer, but if it were a mix of a few years so that it is fairer to all owners that would be good too in my opinion. What I am saying if not clear is that a mix of old and new boxes is fairer so that all entrants have a chance at hitting a "star" or "rookie" from their respective owned team rather than just the current year "hot" rookies.

As for price $10-15 is good if you can get enough entrants, you should at that price. I would love to see a hockey low budget break for $10. A box of 10-11 Luxury Suite offers 8 hits 4 rcs if you can find them they are around $100, they were fun to do. There are also some cheaper boxes like 11-12 Pinnacle which is $25 for 3 hits 4 rcs for a hobby box.

Sounds great Brian! Was talking to redwing about hockey breaks. Would love to get one going, but will need some help from you hockey buffs. I am just now starting to look at hockey tongue.gif Let me get this break knocked out to show that I still got it and then I will see if I can get away with posting 2 breaks at once tongue.gif

I would definitely like to bust new boxes with maybe 1 old school box. They tend to be cheaper and would make good filler boxes when we need something that wont send our costs through the roof smile.gif

awesome. Sounds like we definatley have a good enough Hockey following to get one started. I will get with you hockey guys and get a Hockey break up once the football break is busted and in the mail smile.gif


Hockey Guys:

Start looking for products you might like to bust on the lower end. Fair warning, I couldn't tell you what the good rookies or brands for Hockey are right now so I will need some coaching through the first break or two. But I am doing my homework wink.gif

WoW! That looks like fun. 15 spots at $10 a spot would definatley cover that!


I sent an email to the powers that be asking permission to run more than one break at a time (staggered of course so not breaking all at once). As soon as I get a response I will try to start that up!

See if there is any interest first. I am sure there are other options, but that is not bad for 10 hits, there are other new products in the $70 range, just all depends on what people want to do.

So for current members:

Do you want to keep your spots and just confirm for each break or do we want to make spots available each break? Give everyone a chance to get their teams smile.gif

Personally, I am good either way

Just a heads up. I am only going to be able to do 1 break at a time for right now smile.gif. So what I will do is post up a new one once the break is full, but wont start accepting payment until packages start arriving to members!

So the hockey break I posted will be on hold until this one is complete. Should give everyone a chance to get payment together smile.gif

It looks like pretty much everyone so far wants to make this a permanent break, which of course I am very happy about smile.gif As of right now, teams are held for future breaks.
