OH Cello packs would be OK with me. I guess it will also depend on what is available at the time we want to break.

I'm mostly about the Washington DC area (and Baltimore) Sports teams and Vintage plus Non-Sport.

Ok folks...did some checking around and this is what I would like to propose for our first break;

1966 Topps Cello (Series 4) GAI 8.5
1968 Topps Wax (Series 1) PSA 7
1972 OPC Wax (2 packs) Series 1

I know OPC is not everyones favorite for the 72 but we don't have enough to get anything else decent. Here are some of the possibilities from those series;

1972: Carlton Fisk RC, Willie Mays, Killebrew, Yastrzemski, Joe Morgan, Bob Gibson, Frank Robinson, League Leader cards.

1968: Mays, Seaver, Carew, Brooks Robinson, Eddie Matthews, Gibson, G. Perry, L. Pinella RC, League Leader cards.

1966: Clemente, Sutton RC, F. Robinson, B. Gibson.

We would need 11-12 slots to fill which is right where we're at. The 68 and 72 packs would come from Baseball card Exchange so hopefully I could get enough of a discount we would be fine with just 11 slots. The 66T Cello is on Ebay right now with a BIN of $400.

Let me know what you think about that line up?

Sounds good...I'll wait for more opinions but I'd rather not up the price just yet. I'd like to see what exposure we get from the first break and then see where we can go from there. Of course extra slots are always welcome.

I sent out emails and PM's to those involved in this one. I'd like to go ahead and try this one with the product list we have proposed earlier. I'll updated the original post and would like to try to look for payments by May 31st so I can start buying the products. I am fully convinced that if we can get this one off the ground there will be plenty of others who will want to join and we can upgrade the product list going forward.

Remember it doesn't take a superstar hit to do well with this one! I opened a 1971 OPC pack last year and finally got around to sending a Reds team card in for grading. It came back a PSA 9 which sell for around $250. There are at least 3-4 other cards from that pack that have the same shot at a 9 and will be sent in when I get enough for a bulk submission but keep that in mind that you won't have to hit a Clemente or Mays to make this one worthwhile!

Unfortunately it's not looking good. I just got word that the 66T pack won't be mailed out until tomorrow so chances are I won't get it by Saturday. I still can't reach 19th Century so if I don't hear anything in the next couple days I'll take over his slot. With the 12 slots we are able to add a 1975T pack to the mix as I got a slight discount from BBCExchange so I'm adding that to the list. With the deadline almost 10 days ago I'll set the slot drop deadline for Friday afternoon. If I don't hear anything we'll go ahead and start the randoms to determine card slots for everyone so we'll be ready to go when the 66T pack arrives. NLR4434 has verified her payment is incoming so her slots should be fine.

Quick update. I got the tracking info on the 66T pack and it doesn't arrive until Tuesday and I'm out of town Tue-Wed so it looks like the earliest we can do this is next Thursday. That will give 19th Century some more time to reclaim his slot so I'll push back the randomizations until Monday before I leave on the trip. Sorry about that.
