March Low Budget Baseball Break Club

Ahoy-hoy!

Welcome to the second month of the Low Budget Baseball Break Club! Please verify that you would like to participate this month. I hope to have our Payments in by March 15. SEND PAYMENTS TO angling.for.farthings@gmail.com

1. sahetu - Blue Jays, Rays, Pirates
2. NYStateOfMind1976 - Yankees, Padres, D-backs
3. maple19 - Cardinals, Twins, Tigers
4. Johnny Number 5 - Red Sox, Dodgers, Brewers
5. RGBII - Phillies, Braves, Rangers
6. captkirk42 - Mets, Nationals, Marlins
7. 5toosweet - Reds, White Sox, Indians
8. yankeesjetsfan - Mariners, Angels, Rockies
9. Derek4484 - Astros, Cubs, A's
10. pavi39 - Orioles, Giants, Royals

Waiting List:
1. booth9919
2. bajmurray

Boxes for this month:

2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Baseball (3 hits)
2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces Baseball (4 hits)
2007 Upper Deck Elements Baseball (3 hits)
2007 UD Sweet Spot (4 hits)

Break Format:

- After the verification process, we'll talk boxes. We will all vote on at least 6 different box variations. My hope is that we pick a lot of boxes with a lot of hits so that we can spread the love.

- $20 Paypal per spot will get you 3 rounds in a draft for 3 teams. First round is drafted, the reverse of that draft is the second round, and the third is another random draft. That said, you cannot draft the same team in 1st round in back to back months (In other words, if you pick the Yankees in the first round this month, you can't pick them in the first round next month).

- Payment will be due once all members are verified for the month. Then, and only then, will I post my Paypal address and accept payments. I want to make sure we're all on board. Those who wish to use something other than Paypal (trades, money orders, checks, pie, etc) will have to PM me.

- Shipping, Paypal fees, and supplies will roughly cost around $3.00 a person. That leaves us with roughly $170 a month to work with.

- You will receive every card for every team you drafted, including base cards.

- Team issues: Player's uniform dictates who the card goes to. If a player played for a defunct team, he goes to the modern incarnation of that team (ex. Expos = Nationals).

- Multi Memorabilia and/or signatures are randomed between the teams UNLESS one team/owner outweighs the other on a card. For example... A card featuring David Wright and Chipper Jones would be randomed off between Mets and Braves. However, a card featuring Jon Lestor, Josh Beckett, and Andy Pettite (Red Sox, Red Sox, Yankees) would go to the Red Sox owner. If it's three or more different teams and someone owns the majority of the teams, it goes to that person.

- Non-baseball cards are proportionately randomed between all members (celebrity cards, strange subsets, etc). That is to say that if we have 10 different random cards, once one person wins one, he's out of the loop to give the other 9 a shot (and so on).

- Minor League and college players go to the teams they were drafted to UNLESS it states on the card that they are on a MLB team. If they are undrafted, they are randomed.

- Each month, the Wax Wombat kicks in a box. No, it won't be anything expensive. No, it may not always be a hobby box. It could be a blaster or a multi-pack retail box. Bonus boxes will be revealed during the breaks.

- Transactions for the break are made after the break is finished. Shipping of your cards will be the first convenient weekday.


"My common sense is tingling..."

The Wax Wombat moniker has been retired. Doesn't seem right anymore,
as I don't own the domain, have that blog, or rip much wax these days.
