This is in regards to my 05 LCM CASE break.

http://www.tradingcardcentral.com/forums/i...st=0&p=1521297&

I have had some interest,but people want to pick there own team. I cant do that if i keep it at 32 teams because after like 15 nothing would fill. If i did pick ur own team i would have to add 1 random and it would be more expensive. PLMK your thoughts on this. The 24 box case is at a great price, and with 96 hits and over 125 #ed inserts, i think this is going to be a great bust!!

Being primarily a collector of a specific team, it's not worth it for me to join a group break in which I cannot get the Pats. That's why I don't join random/drafted team group breaks. Maybe other team collectors feel the same way.

Thats the vibe im getting as well, but if i switch it to that, im scared that nobody will join because the price will nearly double!! Its deffinitly worth the price for 24 boxes, but im not sure who can afford it!! Well i apreciate the comments and should i switch it the patriots will be an open team!!

I don't know which would be the best for your break.

If you choose a team, I don't think very many people would pay $80 for a spot (especially when a member could get a box of his/her choosing for $80).

Then again, not everyone is fond of the "random" team group break.

$80 is so expenssive, but for a 96 hit break seems like a good deal!! Thats an average of over 5 hits per person if we go with the 1 picked 1 random, not to mention an avaerage of 8 #ed inserts and rookies.

The 1 random i thought would have been a good price, but too many people think the 1 pickes 1 random is better, i just dont think they will pay.

The other option is doing a half case, but then we wouldnt get this great price!!

have you asked the guys who have already commited to a spot if they were willing to do half a case and get 2 teams 1 pick 1 random.the price would stay the same at 43 wouldnt it?i agree with you that 80 is hard to cough up for nothing guaranteed considering it would take a long time to fill or never fill.maybe consider (if you have the funds) buy the case and do 2 half case breaks with the same guys or even do half with the first guys and if anyone drops pick up the empties with other people and keep it 1 random 1 picked?just some ideas.

No it wouldn't because i wouldn't get the same deal im getting on the case, it would be an extra $4 per box average, so probally an extra $2-$3 on top of that!

Thanks for the ideas, i will take them into consideration!
