Welcome to 2nd month of the break of all breaks!
April Break can be found here:
We do it right here at SCGB.... Live Break, Dirt Cheap Prices, High-End Boxes, SAFE shipping, and EVERYTHING done on camera in plain view.
You will see everything happen just as it happens. No more mystery as to where that pack came from, what case that box came from, or wondering why the cards are not being opened in you, the viewer's, clearview. I know many people may not know me on here yet. But I have 242 all positive feedback on SCF, and 63+ all positive on eBay. So join with confidence!
IMPORTANT NOTICE :
This is going to be a monthly break. I would love to have a regular group of guys that get together every month to do this, so we could all have a good time and get to know each other in the process, as we bust some high-end products and hope for some huge hits! I am going to make incentive for all the members that come back from month to month. You have first rights to retain your team from last month before anyone else AND you get to vote on the month at hand's boxes. Each month your team's price goes up $5. I have thought about this for a while, is a great and cheap way to retain your team, that at the same time adds money to the pot AND will play as the great equalizer. As it will eventually make the more sought after teams more expensive than the teams that are always hard to be filled. If our group sticks together for a year, and we make it to March 2011, then every teams price will be multiplied or divided by the same percent so that the sum of all teams equals the same $3200 that it did for the March 2009 break....
Deadline to tell me if you are retaining your team or team's for this month is April 24th, at 11:59 PM EST. Likewise, the deadline to get your votes in for what products we bust is due at the same time. You get to go on a virtual $3000 box/case shopping spree for every team that you retain from every month. If you own 3 teams, you can just ask that I count your list 3 times, or come up with 3 different lists. No preference from my end. This means that only the regulars get to vote on the boxes! If you would rather not vote, and trust my take, then I will just vote for you basing your vote off how I viewed the product selection from the previous month(s).
Voting Restrictions and Rules!!! : All products have to be from 2006-Present, hobby boxes/cases and must feature every team in them. No Cowboys only boxes or anything like that for example. If you want to vote on 30 different $100 boxes that is fine. If you want to vote on just two cases of something that costs $1500 that is fine, or if you want to vote for 40 of the same $75 box that is fine too. I just ask that you keep your votes to boxes with as LITTLE base as possible, and at least 2-3 hits, and products that are at least $60-70 in cost. Except if it's like a super high-end product like a Sterling, or Triple Threads, etc. When making your vote list, please use Atlanta Sports Cards or BlowoutCards as your price quoters.
IF YOU WERE NOT IN OUR BREAK THE MONTH BEFORE, AND WOULD LIKE TO VOTE ON THE PRODUCT FOR THIS MONTH'S BREAK, then I would need payment for one of the unclaimed teams plus your votes, by the April 24th deadline
Here is the list of teams from the month before, along with this month's pricing. If I do not here back from you by April 24th, then your team will come available at last month's price on a first-come,first-serve basis.

THIS BREAK IS GUARANTEED TO RUN! So join with confidence! Product list will just be adjusted off of how many participants we get.
This is going to be one sick break. Here are some final break clarifications, so everything is pre-decided to prevent any arguments:
I am TAKING NO PROFIT ON THIS BREAK whatsoever. . All money collected goes straight to product (minus $5 each for shipping, $1 additional for each extra team) All I ask is that you guys cover the PayPal fees. So send as a "Personal" PayPal payment such as "Payment Owed", cover the fees on Regular paypal, or pay through the mail in a Money Order.
---Any hits from leftover teams or non-football cards (if any) will be randomized between everyone in the break on a 1-chance-for-every-team-taken basis. If you have 2 teams in the break, you have 2 chances at the randomized card, and so on. Once a card from an unclaimed team is pulled, I will pick a name out of a hat, right on the spot to choose who claims that card. That name will stay out of the hat until all names are picked or until there are no hits left.
---Multi-Player/team cards will be randomized based on a 1 chance-per- player/team-represented-on-the-card basis... If it is a triple auto, and you own 2 of the players on the card, and John Doe owns 1, then you have a 2:1 chance of getting it compared to his 1:2 chance. If it is a dual, then it is randomized between the 2 people who own the represented teams. If one team is owned, and one team is NOT owned, then the card gets randomized between the Owned team and a piece of paper stating "Unclaimed teams". If unclaimed wins, then the card is treated just like any other card from an Unclaimed team.
---COLLEGE UNIFORM/Unique Uniform RULES.... If a ROOKIE CARD is pulled of a player out of his NFL uniform then the card goes to the team he was drafted by. If a card is pulled of a Hall of Famer/Legend in his college uniform, then the card goes to the team he played the majority of his career on. If a card is pulled of a current non-rookie NFL player then the card goes to the team he currently plays for.
---Because I am paying for shipping myself, base will not be sent unless requested. It's no problem if you want it, just let me know, as most people joining high-end group breaks don't care about base anyway. I just ask that you throw me a few bucks to ship the base as it itll weigh the bubble mailer down. The only product that features a good amount of base anyway is SP Authentic, all other products should feature it pretty sparatically.
---The break will be LIVE on Ustream. Videos will be recorded and then posted to Youtube
PayPal Address and Email Address is: DoubleM392@aol.com
Any questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to let me know!
Thanks a lot!

If you would like to have a say in voting on the Products then I need it by the 24th.... If you could care less, then I would need it by the 27th...
Can i have the eagles?
Yeah sure. It's funny, as soon as I drop them they get claimed! I offered them around last month, but no one wanted them, but we're glad to have you bwaggy. They are a very solid team. DeSean, McCoy and Maclin are great RC possibilities all around!
If you want to vote on the products for this month, then I am going to need your payment by the 24th being you are a new member.
Eagles now available!
Are the 49ers confirmed?
Mike.... Not yet. Jay has until the 24th to tell me if he is coming back or not. At that point if he doesn't choose to keep them, then they are available on a first come first serve basis.
However if anyone confirmed back already would luck to trade teams that is more than plenty allowed.
Now taking Members for our monthly break for any of the Bold Teams!!! Whether you want to just join for this month, or become part of a regular great break, there are 12 teams now available!!
Josh at AtlantaSportsCards isn't available to post yet, so he retains the Falcons for the month, drops the Texans, and picks up the Saints!
12 Teams Remain!
Check some of the available teams, there are some great teams left!!! Some of the teams are just at AMAZING value too considering how much they cost and what they can yield! Let's get some new members in here!
Looking for new members, anyone want to join?
hey matt, i'll take the bills. will let you know fri. or sat. which teams i'm retaining.
hey matt, i'm back with the rams, giants and will pick up the bills this month. i'm dropping the browns and chiefs.
Matt, give me the Browns.
Just got back from NC! Awesome trip... Can't wait to spend the next 4 years or so there...
Let me get settled in, and I'll tally up all the boxes for the votes and post an update as soon as I can.
Thanks for everything fellas.
Matt, roll me in with the Panthers as well.
All Team Affiliations Updated!! Thanks a lot for joining Bob!
Alright so the product list is up everyone. Not going to lie, it is currently pretty weird. Don't think it is finalized though! As more teams are purchased over the next week, more products are added!
This is the product list as spoken by you the people. I just took everyone that voted, tallied up the votes, and listed the boxes as the numbers shown. I guess after last month, people had some favorites from the boxes!
But no worries. Those boxes are done. Their limits are basically capped at 2. The next box to be added to the list is 2008 NT (2008 is currently non-represented!), followed by 2007 NT, and 2006 Ultimate....
Oh and another thing. THe product list may seem pretty small right now with only 6 boxes, but that is because we are sitting currently with only $2070 total collected. Last month we had slightly over $3000.... Subsequently, I have pushed back the break a week. I just don't feel like the product list is currently as balanced and quality as it was last month. Don't get me wrong, I love all 3 products. 06 NT was 2006's best product, and 07 Exquisite is arguably 2007's best. And I personally love 09 Exquisite, as I think we knocked it out of the park with our box last month.
So it just makes sense to push it back a weekend. We now have a week from Tonight at 11:59 to fill some more spots with some new members, and we can add that 08 NT, and possibly 07 NT and 06 Ultimate to our list! 08 Triple Threads would be the final box added, but I'm not sure if we would have enough money to add that! We would need to fill up all 12 remaining team slots!
Give me the Cardinals to Matt thanks
Good Call Chris.... With Leinart in 06, and Wells in 09, Cardinals shape up really well for the break!
Who else wants to join up... I just did the calculations... If all 12 remaining teams are filled, we will add these boxes.
2006 Ultimate Collection
2007 National Treasures
2008 National Treasures
2008 Triple Threads
i like all the products listed myself but i think we may be limiting ourselves this way to new members. perhaps we shoud put some additional rules in place next month to make sure of more variety in the break. i would like to see all years represented in the break (06-10) and a more balanced budget by year with the exception of 2010 which i would like to see represented but obviously doesn't have the same kind of products available.
i'd like to see us using the nt and exq. as our base products (switching between the two month to month) with only one of these high-end products represented in each year with one or two mid range products (black, premier, ultimate etc.) sprinkled in each year as the budget allows with any extra funds going towards additional high-end boxes when possible.
basically i think that the kind of line-up we had first time around is the best way to ensure everybody a good chance at some cards and will help to keep current members happy as well as ensuring to attract new members to the group.
I don't disagree at all... The only reason, 2010 wasn't represented was because the only person to vote for a 2010 product, was well, yourself. And that's not a problem at all! I just think people are going to wait for the more NFL licensed products to come out before we get a lot of votes for 2010 stuff... People just would rather see some earlier products busted than a box of Press Pass or Sage for the most part ya know?
And the only reason that 2008 hasn't been represented for this break yet, was because all the votes were spread out for 2008.
And a big reason that the boxes were not as diverse this month as they were last month, is because I didn't receive votes from all the returning members. Only some of the guys coming back, sent me their votes. Which isn't a big deal. It's alright. I think this month should yield some huge stuff still. Seems like this month is a little bit more high-end then last month. So there may not be as many Bowman Sterling simple GU, and no-name autos to go around, but the quality should be up!
there's no doubt these are great products but how would you like to be the guy holding the $125 a month falcons with no 08 products in the mix? or for that matter who's going to pick up the ravens when the best rookie available is oher? i just think with such a limited line-up we're going to have alot of unclaimed teams as they're not fairly represented.
Yeah, that could happen. The good thing is, all hits from unclaimed hits will be randomed just like last month. The bengals were the only unclaimed team last month, and they yielded like 7 hits which were randomized around. And 2008 NT, and 2008 TTT will be added if we could fill up the break. So those are 2 very solid 2008 boxes.... I plan on picking up a team or two towards the end of the week, to help push this along. I guarantee we will fill up enough to get at least 2 or 3 more boxes added to the break... It will be solid as promised. And if teams stay unclaimed. That's not a bad thing. That just means more hits for all us members already involved, because if we miss with our purchased teams, then we all haev a shot at the hits from the unclaimed teams....
well i'm going to start off the push for 08 products by taking the eagles.
I am with Kevin, I definately like the idea of a box of NT or Exquisite for every year and then fill in the rest with mid range boxes like TTT, Ultimate, UD Black, Absolute, and other products like that. Don't get me wrong I am excited for the break this month because I know more spots will fill and I love highend product but I just don't want to see people get shut out and not want to come back next month. I especially wish we weren't voting out the TTT boxes this month because last month the 2 boxes we got were huge but I also know it could be totally opposite this month. We all know it is just a gamble anyway I would just like to get a nice group of people together that wanted to be in every month with their teams and have some fun breaking some highend. All of the other highend monthly group breaks have the same members almost every month with a few newbies here and there and that is where I hope this monthly break gets to. Well Matt just wanted to let you know my opinion. I do agree with you though if the other teams don't fill in there should be some real good hits to random this month. Well can't wait for the break lets hope we fill so we can get some more boxes to bust.
Kevin and Chris,
Thanks a lot for everything guys. I'm glad we found some regulars in you too. I appreciate you picking up the Eagles Kev. I was going to take them at the end of the week if they were still there, but I'd much rather see someone besides me take a good team like the Eagles.
Yeah I totally agree Chris. I definitely plan on this becoming a regular monthly thing. I think we are getting a solid nucleus of guys together, and I can only hope we pick up about 3 or 4 more guys who come back every month! I'm sure when people see our breaks and the huge cards that we are yielding that people will come flocking to join these! That's the goal at least.
For now with the purchase of the Eagles, that will add a box of 2007 Absolute to te list. But again, as more money is added to the pot, the boxes will upgrade until we have enough for the 2008 NT and then after that we will work towards the 2007 NT
No problem Matt just glad to be in a nice highend monthly break.
Yeah I really think this is turning into a great monthly thing. I just want some more product added to the break, so lets hope more teams are purchased!
I'd really like to get some new members in the break so all our current regulars aren't feeling the pressure to pick up more teams! It'll all work out in the end though
....and don't forget that Hi-End product SPx....
Bob, just feel free to get in your votes for what boxes you want next month! I'd love to get a lot of opinions in, so we can get one product list, hopefully loved by all!
Anyone know of any new members we could possibly recruit in here?
These forums have seemed pretty quiet lately, but I'd still like to get in the ballpark of 25 filled spots!
A couple more slots to be filled would be great.
Due to personal reasons, Bob is going to have to drop his slots for this month, but hopefully he will be back in the near future!
That opens up the Browns, Panthers, and Patriots!
With that said, there are some great opportunities here now!
Bengals - $70
Browns - $100
Bucs - $85
Chargers - $95
Chiefs - $70
Jaguars - $80
Panthers - $100
Patriots - $100
Ravens - $115
Redskins - $90
Seahawks - $80
Steelers - $120
Texans - $75
Titans - $120
Let's get some Friday Morning bump and hope for some entrants
TO ALL PERSPECTIVE MEMBERS!
I've been seeing so many breaks not filling lately. THIS BREAK IS GUARANTEED TO RUN!
The beauty of this break is that every month we will run the break whether all 32 teams are taken, 31 teams are taken (like last month), or 18 teams are taken (our current number). We just adjust our product list based off of how much money we collect as a group.
So let's get more people to join this break, so we can add some MORE SWEET boxes to the break, and pull some HUGE stuff!
Keep the members joining fellas!
payment sent for my teams.
Got it Kevin!
Still looking for some payments, and last minute members!
Alright fellas, we have reached that time again!
Unfortunately, we had only 18 teams purchased up front for this month. No big deal, that's still a lot. More random teams, to act as safety teams for the rest of us! Less teams purchased equals more hits to be randomed off, and I know the randoms helped a lot of guys breaks out last month!
Therefore it's time to get ALL PAYMENTS in, and take SILENT BIDS for the remaining teams. No exceptions, I need ALL payments within the next 2 days. At 2:00 on Wednesday, I will post all results from the Silent Bids, and I'm gonna need people to get those payments in ASAP, so the boxes can go out on Thursday.
Minimum bids for any team will be $65, with maximum being as much as you want. At Wednesday at 2:00, the results will be posted, with the highest bid getting the team (But much like eBay, if you bid $90, and the next highest is $80, you'll get the team for $85)
So let's see some bids, and hopefully add another box or two to the break!
Just a clarification.... You can get these silent bid teams for DIRT cheap. Last month, the Bills, Rams and Chiefs all went via Silent Bid and some AWESOME stuff was pulled for the money. You may not get a shot at the randoms for a silent bid team, but you still have a shot at some awesome teams!
That is how it works though. If you buy a silent bid team, you don't get a shot at the randoms for it, but you still get all the cards pulled for your team. This is done as a way to try and get more full priced teams purchased!
Looking for some more silent bids right now, only a few teams have bids on them!!!
Just another clarification.... Ken brought up a very good point.
ANY CARD that has ANY player featured on it of your team, you get a chance of. For example, if you pick up the bengals via silent bid, and an Ochocinco/TO Dual auto is pulled. You have a shot at it. You just don't get a shot at any of the cards for the unclaimed teams. (Last month only 1 team went unclaimed) And the way that silent bids are coming in now, there shouldn't be that many unclaimed teams. This is done just an incentive to get more full price purchased teams. It's a little perk.
So again. if four teams go unclaimed and you pick up a silent bid team. You get all the cards of the team you buy, and a shot at all the dual/triple cards with a player from that team it. You just don't get a shot at any of the leftover cards from the remaining teams!
Payment sent Matt. Looking forward to the break.
List adjusted! Any other silent bids in before tomorrow's deadline!
We need all payments in tomorrow if we are looking to break this weekend! Otherwise, as much as I would crigne to do it, we might have to break during the week next week!
Come on guys lets break this weekend or I else I might miss if if we have it during the week.
sent you a pm matt earlier today i believe
Got all PM's about silent bids fellas, including yours Nick!
If anyone wants to bid higher because they feel like they are going to lose their bids, feel free to update me in a PM, because we are getting a LOT of bids this month! It's a good sign at elast
payment sent !
Payment received. Just need a few more payments, and then I'll post the Silent Bids today around 2... Need to get all payments in ASAP
SILENT BID RESULTS!!! (not really all that exciting)
Bengals - NO BIDS
Browns - $71 (mattdile3)
Bucs - NO BIDS
Chargers - $65 (kencope)
Chiefs - NO BIDS
Jaguars - NO BIDS
Panthers - NO BIDS
Patriots - $65 (kencope)
Ravens - $70 (mattdile3)
Redskins - $65 (kencope)
Seahawks - NO BIDS
Steelers - $77 (mattdile3)
Texans - NO BIDS
Titans - $75 (mattdile3)
All remaining teams are available for the purchase of $75! Next month we are definitely going to have to raise the minimum bid price for all of the remaining teams! I put bids in for the four teams that sold for the highest last month, of $90 each and I got them for sadly in the $70-80 range each. That's bad. Next month the minimum bid is going to go up to $75!
I'll update the final box list tonight! Feel free to purchase any of the last 7 teams for $75 if you would like though, so we can add more product to the lineup!
I can't believe the Steelers went for $77. I feel like a total retard paying $100 for the Raiders and $95 for the Cardinals now!! Well at least we get some more product now I guess. Well good luck all in the break!!
Here is our current order fellas. Hopefully I can get us a better discount so we can add in another mid-range box! Last month we were able to. Currently looks like we have all exquiste and national treasures to break! I guess that's a good thing, but I'd like to get more diversity if possible.
2006 National Treasures - $329
Current Sub-Total = $329
2007 Exquisite - $389.99 (x2)
Current Sub-Total = $779.98
2008 National Treasures - $465.99
Current Sub-Total = $465.99
2009 Exquisite - $449.99 (x2)
Current Sub-Total = $899.99
Current Total for all 4 years = $2474.96
Let's get some of these last 7 teams purchased so we can order more boxes!
Still waiting for some payments fellas! I hate when things happen like this but it is what it is..... The boxes from Blowout are on their way, just need the last payments to place the order from Josh at AtlantaSportsCards!
please post the transaction, thanks.
I usually don't post the trade until the break runs, but I posted it up for you Kenny.
Did you PM the other guys that haven't paid yet? I would really like to have this break this weekend because I won't be around much next week after work with the kids baseball getting started.
Can't pay until something's posted. Thanks! Money on the way. -Ken
PM's sent to everyone that still has to pay.... Trying to get this show on teh road. Some of the boxes are already on their way from blowout.
Chad, got your payment....
Still waiting on Ken's and Doodaa's.... Blowout's boxes should get here today
My payment's been sent. -Ken
Thank you Ken. Money received. One more payment and the last boxes could be ordered!
Can you order without that last payment or no? Will we be breaking the blowout stuff this weekend and then the rest later on?
I honestly don't have enough money in my paypal right now to front for the last spot.... I'll try and sell some things on here and SCF today though to see if I can raise $125, because I trust that Chad (Doodaa24) will pay. I've been trading and dealing with him since early 2008 so I trust him fully. He prob just hasn't been around to look lately.
I'll PM him on SCF, e-mail him and try and get in touch with him.... If everyone is in favor of it, we COULD break the National Treasures boxes from Blowout tonight or tomorrow if they are there when I get home in an hour....
count me as a "for it" anyway
The boxes from Blowout are here.... 2006 National Treasures and 2008 National Treasures... So we could break them this weekend if you guys would like.
Ken's in for it. I'm cool either way.
Any last minute additions would be great too!!
7 teams left at $75 each, and then I can add around a $100 box to this month's order!
I'll pick up the CHIEFS - paypal coming your way
PAYPAL PAYMENT COMPLETE!!
Patrick, you have sent $75.00 USD to Joe.
Sounds great Patrick, you are in.... Glad to know we are on good terms now, great to have you back.
May some Tamba Hali, Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles, Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, and Legend mojo be with you!
If we get another guy or two to join, we might be able to look in the lines of adding another higher-end box such as maybe another 2006 National Treasures or a couple mid-end ones!
For now I'll figure out what mid-end box I am going to add in for now.
I would be up for breaking a few boxes tonight if that is what everyone else wanted to do, but I would send out some PMs so people know since this is a highend break. Well I will keep checking back on and off. Thanks
PM's sent out to everyone involved in the break.... Majority rules. Let's see what everyone thinks! We got two boxes that we can break tonight (only the ones that Josh from AtlantaSportsCards didn't have in stock, because I promised him any boxes he has in stock I would purchase from him.)
I can break them around 9 est most likely, if you guys want, or we can do them later tonight OR just wait until all the boxes are in for one big break.
Also... If we do break the two boxes tonight, that means that the break is closed to any of the last 6 teams being picked up! And if we get just that ONE or TWO more teams taken, tha tmeans we can add in a box of 2006 NT, 2009 NT or 2008 Exquisite!
Hail24 - tonight
mattdile3 - undecided
kencope - tonight
deantap - leave's tonight at 930 EST
Hehe if you want that extra box so bad, the Panthers and Texans don't look too bad for 2008 boxes with Stewart and Slaton
To Everyone else potentially looking at getting in!
Panthers have DeAngelo RC stuff, Jonathan Stewart, and now Jimmy Clausen! Texans have Mario Williams, Amobi Okoye, Demeco Ryans Steve Slaton and Brian Cushing rc stuff. Bengals have a lot of big money stars, and solid rookies, especially Bernard Scott. the Seahawks have some good 2009 and now 2010 rookies (curry, butler etc), the Bucs have Gaines Adams, FREEMAN, Johnson, Stroughterand company, and the Jaguars have MJD, Sims-Walker and Mike Walker RC stuff!
I'm surprised these last 6 teams aren't going faster at only $75
anytime is good by me for the next couple of days. won't be around sunday though.
Looks like we won't be opening the two boxes tonight fellas just because I couldnt get in touch with everyone.
But this only gives us more time to hopefully add one or two more people to the break, and potentially bust all the 7 boxes together!
why are you saying the panthers have jimmy clausen..he is not available in any of the products you're doing? only in 2010 stuff...and i also dont understand why you did silent bids starting at $65 when there were still some good teams out there...and now the remaining teams aren't too great and the price for them was upped to $75?
Nick.... Two reasons behind that.
1. I say the Panthers have Jimmy Clausen, because you are allowed to keep your team from month to month, and as Kevin (kpit1978) and Bob (roadrunner) discussed earlier in the thread, teams like the Panthers, Browns, Rams, Broncos are going to be more sought after now because of their newly drafted big name quarterbacks. And while yes, there are not any 2010 products being busted this month, one can get ahead of the game by calling dibs on the team now. That way when the 2010 products ARE involved, people aren't rushing to say, "OH, I better pick up the Panthers," and then look at the page and be shocked that someone already possesses them. It's all very strategic. The only reason a 2010 product hasn't been busted yet is because of the lack of quality product being released yet (that and the fact not many people voted for one this month)
2. The reason teams are available at $75 right now purchase value is the same reason there are auction-style and Buy-It-Now on eBay. I can't control what the silent-bids go for. I have to make a reasonable minimum bid, and then whatever people bid is what it goes for. There could be some steals, like a few of the teams that only went for $65, and maybe one or two that went for around $70 or so, but that could easily be changed by people bidding more. As already described Nick, the minimum bid is going up to $75 next month, just because of how cheap everyone was with their bids this month haha. I mean, you put in 1 bid, but it was at $65. At least get creative and bid like $65.01 or something like that, if you are going to bet that little. I'm just saying.
You could have retained your cardinals for this month too, there would have been a nice shot at some Leinart, Hightower, and Beanie Wells RC Stuff...
Next month is only going to be more selective though. I'm doing everything from my part, to balance the cost of all the quality teams. Quality Control....
Chris you are totally right though. I would have never thought a team like the Steelers would have went for $77. As you and I discussed, I went from 4 purchased teams to 2 purchased teams this month to give people a chance at some of the better teams, and then they go unclaimed! There is nothing I can do about that. Eagles, Steelers, Titans, Browns, Ravens, Bucs, Seahawks, Panthers, Jaguars, Bengals, Texans, Saints all beacme available for purchase this month, and no one hopped on the opportunity. That is out of the break host's reach. I just crunch the numbers.
But next month, the simplest way to solve this, is to just drive up the prices on the silent bids, so that more people purchase the quality teams before we get to silent bids. And if no one wants to raise their bids, then we will just have some AWESOME teams go unclaimed and have some even nicer hits to random off for all the guys that do go above and beyond to purchase some great teams. As we go on too, we'll pick up more regulars, and more teams will become sought after, and there will be more wealth to spread around, with top rookies from the past 5 years all available then!
Anyone interested in taking the packers if Doodaa doesn't get back to me in the next few days? I'll give him until Monday at 2, because that's when the boxes have to go out, but is there anyone that could guarantee payment if he doesn't pull through?
It's just good to have a backup ready....
Bob you are the man as always, but Chad B just paid yesterday for the Packers so we are all set there for at least this month....
I appreciate your generosity as always though, and hope everything's been good for you lately!
No problem Bob, I realize there's a lot more in life than just this hobby. Hopefully everything improves from "meh" for ya.
If you end up wanting to pick up a team at $75 (some of the teams i think you originally were gonna pay much more for!), any of the six teams would love to have Bob's name on them... I still do have that Matt Baker RC for ya too btw.
Just waiting on Chad's payment, I trust he'll come through as always though, I've been dealing with him for a while... I mean the Broncos set up awesome for these breaks, so I'm sure he will be back!
Sorry for the delay everyone. I just sent the money
Got it Chad! Thanks a lot man for pulling through, I knew ya would....
Now that all payments are in, and the break is definitely going forward with the 6 boxes we currently have plus an extra 7th... Who wants to join and help turn this extra 7th box from a box of triple threads into another box of national treasures or exquisite!
Since our next wave of boxes will likely be here on Wednesday.... When does everyone want to break? Should we do it during the week, or would everyone prefer to wait until next weekend!
Well if we did it Wednesday I would like it to be later because my son starts baseball Wed and my daughter also has softball that day so I won't get home until 7:30 Central time. I also can't do it Friday night mom is watching the kids so I can have an alone night with my wife. Any other night I am free sorry if I am being a pain in the butt. Just keep me updated thanks.
No problem Chris.... Any other opinions around on when we break this?
ASAP, sooner the better. Don't like having the money out with nothing to show for it longer than need be. That's my vote. I don't need to be there to see it, so whenever is good for you.
Darn Ken, I would think a man would at least want to be there to watch it, but I get what u mean.
What's everyone else think....
And anyone want to take any of the remaining 6 teams?
Bengals - Ochocinco, Palmer, Benson, Collinsworth, Maulaluga RC, Ken Anderson, Bernard Scott RC
Bucs - Freeman RC, Gaines Adams RC, Alstott, Brooks, Josh Johnson RC, Stroughter RC
Jaguars - MJD RC, Garrard, Sims-Walker RC, Mike Thomas RC, Fred Taylor
Panthers - DeAngelo RC, Stewart RC, Jarrett RC, Beason RC, Clausen (Future Months)
Seahawks - Largent, Hasselback, Wallace RC, Alexander, Butler RC, Curry RC
Texans - Mario Williams RC, Andre Johnson, Slaton RC, Cushing RC, Okoye RC, Kevin Walter
wed. works for me. preferably around 10-11 est. shouldn't take nearly as long this time with fewer boxes (and alot fewer base cards).
I don't know how good that late is for me on Wednesday, but I'll definitely keep you guys updated.... Glad to get more opinions in.
Wednesday for me the earlier the better lol
Wednesday around 8 central would be fine with me if that works Matt. I will be home by then. Just lmk thanks Chris
Give me the Panthers @ $75.
I can't make any promises about Wednesday, because I don't know if the boxes will get to me on Wednesday or Thursday, but it looks like we can definitely do one of the two days!
Bob, thanks a lot for picking up the panthers! We currently have around $200 to spend on one last box.... It's looking like a box of 2008 Triple threads, unless we can get one or two more spots sold to try and get a box of 2006 National Treasures or 2008 Exquisite/NT added!
Sweet it is shaping up like another great break. I can't wait until it gets here. Good luck all.
Well Said Chris.... That said, I have to work wednesday night. So that is out for the break host fellas! Sorry, with class in the mornings, I just can't be up that late on week nights... I know you are all getting anxious like I am, but this break will be well worth the wait with 7 of the most high-end boxes around!
so are we on for thursday then?
Honestly don't know Kenny.... Weekdays are really bad for me, and are very play it by year due to class the morning after and work at nights....
Would anyone be opposed to a Friday or Saturday break in a worst case scenario?
Ive just come to learn that making promises you can't hold up to, is a bad habit....
Yeah, I would prefer Thursday as well, but it's up to you Matt. This break should only take an hour to hour and a half max, but I understand sometimes it's hard to find the time. -Ken
Thanks for being so understanding everyone, you all are a great group of guys
Any update on an estimated break time?
Fellas.... Good news and bad news.
Bad news first....The actual date of us opening up the boxes has been pushed back to Tuesday/Wednesday night at 9 PM pending everyone's approval. Because of personal reasons I can't state on the boards, I can't do it this weekend. It doesn't work for a few other guys involved in the break as well, so I don't feel so bad.
Now to the Good news.... I felt bad this afternoon when I found out I had to push the break date back again. So I went ahead and added a box of 2006 National Treasures as the extra box that we are adding to the break. Unfortunately our budget falls $110 short, but I will pay that out of my own pocket. I will pick up the Bucs to help defer $75 worth of that cost..
Again, I'm sorry we had to push it back. But this way at least everyone can be present to watch. 4 more days to wait but now we have 4 boxes of Exquisite to break and 3 National Treasures! Win some ya lose some.
Any last minute entrants?
Anyone at all?
trying to get 1 or so last team slot filled!
Looks like we are all set for the break on Wednesday!!
Fellas, we are 100% on for tomorrow!! What time does everyone want to break!?!
I won't be available, son is playing in the District Finals tomorrow night. MOJO to all.
Sorry to hear that Bob.... Mojo to you as well!
Anyone else have a preference?
My daughter has a softball game tomorrow night at 6:00 so around 8-9 central time would be good for me but whatever works for everybody is fine. Just lmk thanks
7 est. or failing that a little later around 10-11.
It would have to be an early break for me as my boy has a baseball game at 5:45pm (PST) so I won't be available after 4:30pm (PST).
930/10 EST (830/9 central, 630/7 PST) is looking pretty good for me.... But I'm open to what everyone has to say.......
anytime works for me ! but my prefs are as early as possible.
Don't punk the Mountain time zone . I'm good whenever. If I can watch, I will. If not, I'll just wait for the results. -Ken
anytime is good just let me know
I can watch the vids later with the suggested time listed above...
Alright I think we are looking at like 9 EST , because that can probably work for the most people without being too late for me.....
9 ET sounds good to me. See you all there and good luck to all.
Perfect..... Just gonna set up the camera right now!
And we're live!
Breaking in this order...
2006 National Treasures x2
2007 Exquisite x2
2008 National Treasures
2009 Exquisite x2
We have 3 members of the break here with us live.... Chad N (doodaa24), Pat (deantap) and Chris (hail24)... Hoping we get one or two more right now!
Sorry I missed it, I'm 6 boxes deep into a case of 2010 bowman jumbo. Will watch the videos later to see how I did.
Great break fellas! We hit some great cards, and definitely had a solid break overall. I wouldn't say we came close to making our money back as a group at all, but in this hobby, anything over half is good..Don't know how much scanning I can do tomorrow with school and then work from 3-11 at the restaurant, but maybe I can get some done Friday before i'm out for the weekend..... if not hopefully i can scan the cards quick on sunday, and pack them all up to go out on Monday!
thanks for the break matt. wish i could of been there to see it. why did you sound so sad when i got the nicks/britt? lol. it worked out good, you got your jet and i added to my giants pc...unfortunately i also added to my britt pc...oh well maybe cj will come into camp out of shape and britt will steal his job.
Haha well I feel bad any time I win a randomization that I am involved in because it is my own break ya know.... It actually did work out well though. That was the nicest Keller I possess now, and you got a nice Britt/Nicks bookmark dual patch auto card... The only reason I would have wanted the Britt is because of his Rutgers ties! Isn't CJ a rb, and Britt a WR though
yeah you're right. i keep getting him and ringer mixed up.
it was a great break though. I remember calling your name a lot Kevin, so you should be happy when your package comes around next week
I think I was in that braek with the Broncos haha, and all I hit was a KNowshon RC Auto.... Well I'm glad you like the Hunt. I didn't hit that much last night, but hey ya win some and lose some... I'm looking forward to next month, because we had a decent amoutn of viewers last night, so hopefully we can get a couple more regulars and break even more high-end product.
Transactions posted for all that I could! All suggestions and comments and ideas for the June break are welcome!
Yeah some more 2008 would be nice along with some TTT from random years, but still a great break.
Matt - Have the cards went out yet? If not, when do you expect them to. Thanks! I know I got a Riggins auto and Antoine Cason, not sure if I got anything else. Thanks! -Ken
Had my prom this weekend, and just got home an hour ago.... Trying my best to get them out for tomorrow.... You had a pretty good break Ken, I know you got a nice Gates/Witten patch, and some others too. Jason Campbell 3 color patch I believe.... I think 5 or 6 hits total
Pat and Chris....
That both works for me... Any returning member gets to put in a product list vote. I just tally up the votes, unfortunately 2008 got the short stick for this month, just because the votes for 2008 products were so spread out. But yet again only like 4 people put in votes last month. When more people vote this month, I'm sure more 2008 products will be put in!
Everyone should have gotten their cards already, or be getting them shortly. I know like three people already have, but the rest of you should sometime this week, I guess based on difference in distance or something like that.
