Hey, just tried to do 07/08 Topps Letterman, but it didn't fill as fast as I thought it would. In the process of posting a Youtube video for an 18 box case group break of 2008 Absolute Memorabilia. This will a $65 for 1 random team. 4 hits minimum a box/18 boxes/ means 72 hits, so everyone should get at least 1 hit if not more. I'm sure there will be plenty of crazy stuff coming out of this one, so I'm giving this break a week to fill. After it's full we'll all pay by a scheduled day which I'll post a video for and then order. I will make a video for the scheduled break time, which I should have on ustream, and I will have 2 camera's for the Youtube break (one at a distance and one close up). Any multiteam cards will be given to the team furthest left and closest to the top of the card. Please, if you are planning on joining, left me know early. I will post the link to the Youtube video as soon as it's done uploading. Thanks, TL cool.gif

Steve4iisr is on board from Youtube. We've got 29 spots left. Please let me know if you're interested in this break, seeing as we don't want to take too long to fill it. I've got about 6 Days and one hour left until I'm closing this one up. Thanks, TL cool.gif

you don't need a youtube account, but I'd suggest checking out the video once it's up to see what got pulled. After we pay, I'll be posting when the break will be so everyone can see it. I'll put you down, but please respond to confirm you're in. Also, are you Atreyu because you like the band or the movie The Neverending Story? I'm a HUGE fan of both. Later dude, TL cool.gif

Sorry, I forgot you didn't check out the video. Yeah, there's 32 teams, and after the break is filled, we'll randomize all 32 teams on Random.org. After we break the case, you get every single card for your team. If there are any cards with multiple teams on it, then the card will go to the team furthest to the left and furthest to the top. The $65 includes all shipping and handling and if there's any ridiculous stuff pulled out (which there will be), then I'll make sure they get magnetic touch holders. All the other cards will be in toploaders and penny sleeves for hits, inserts and rookies and snap tight holders for all base cards. I will have two cameras taping the break for youtube and I should have a ustream account for the live break. Thanks for your question and if you have any more, please post it here so everyone can see the answer. Thanks, TL cool.gif

PM sent, but like I said, people will more than likely want to swap teams, and that's cool with me. If you join, you will more than likely be able to trade for the Giants unless, in that 1/32 chance, the Giants go to a Giants fan. I will be up to trade if they land on me. Later dude, TL cool.gif

Robert Spangler has joined the break. I apologize to everyone for my "bump" to try to get more people to look. I let down about 13 people in my last break when it didn't fill, so I was trying harder this time. If anyone else wants to join, please leave a message or pm me. Thanks, TL cool.gif

Dude, I know. I'm so sorry it didn't fill. I'm trying to get the word out on this one. If this doesn't fill, I'm going to send a message to everyone that did sign up about using the cash for several boxes and possibly having several teams per slot. Hopefully it fills though. Thanks, TL cool.gif
