Ok, so it's been a while since I've done a break. I used to run a monthly football break that went quite well, and is now being run by batman1461 (sorry if I got the name wrong). Recently, I have had virtually no money to spend on cards, but I still miss opening a box here and there. So basically, this break will be for people that are in the same boat I am, or just want to try their luck with a cheap break. It will be run once a month and the price per spot will never be more than $10! This means that we will be breaking one-two boxes each month.

To start off with, I've chosen a box of 2010 Topps Finest to break, but once we have a full break the entire group will vote on what to open!

Each spot will guarantee you two teams, one chosen and one random. The Yankees will be the only mandatory random team.

Each spot in this break will be $9, with every spot after your first costing $1 less. PayPal only. This is $7 for the box plus $2 for shipping, handling, supplies, fees, etc. I will accept payments once all spots are taken.


Non sport cards will be distributed as following. I will lay out each members name(s), depending on how many spots you have, and I will shuffle all non sports cards. Minis and base will be seperate. I will then give one base per person, and repeat until all base are gone. If there are enough non sport minis to cover every spot, they will be evenly distributed. If not, the ones who got no hits will get one first. Any left over base minis will go to those without hits.

So lets get this break going cool2.gif
