Ok folks, I still haven't heard from Indy so I'll take the slot so we can proceed with the break. I am randomizing our list on random.org 5 times (twice between each result) to get the order. I will treat them in rounds and then compile a full list from card #1 up to the highest possible keeping in mind we will not have pulls for the last several slots depending on the final card count in these 5 packs.

Round 1;

1.NLR4434
2.FrankieFBCards
3.TTyler516
4.Miconelegacy
5.Axe725
6.NLR4434
7.Miconelegacy
8.Crpalmi
9.Crpalmi
10.Captkirk42
11.tmgrnzx9r
12.Miconelegacy


Round 2;

1.FrankieFBCards
2.NLR4434
3.Crpalmi
4.tmgrnzx9r
5.TTyler516
6.Crpalmi
7.Miconelegacy
8.Miconelegacy
9.Axe725
10.Captkirk42
11.NLR4434
12.Miconelegacy


Round 3;

1.Captkirk42
2.tmgrnzx9r
3.TTyler516
4.Miconelegacy
5.Crpalmi
6.FrankieFBCards
7.NLR4434
8.NLR4434
9.Miconelegacy
10.Axe725
11.Crpalmi
12.Miconelegacy


Round 4;

1.FrankieFBCards
2.Crpalmi
3.TTyler516
4.Axe725
5.tmgrnzx9r
6.Captkirk42
7.NLR4434
8.Miconelegacy
9.Miconelegacy
10.Crpalmi
11.Miconelegacy
12.NLR4434


Round 5;

1.Captkirk42
2.Crpalmi
3.FrankieFBCards
4.Miconelegacy
5.TTyler516
6.NLR4434
7.NLR4434
8.Miconelegacy
9.tmgrnzx9r
10.Miconelegacy
11.Crpalmi
12.Axe725


So putting it all together, this is the order of pulls that have been assigned. I am not 100% sure on how many cards per pack but expect about 50 total cards but have extended the slots to include the full 5 rounds in case we pull more than that. Remember that any inserts will be saved as the final pulls following the last pack so those bring up the rear.


Final slot order;

1.NLR4434
2.FrankieFBCards
3.TTyler516
4.Miconelegacy
5.Axe725
6.NLR4434
7.Miconelegacy
8.Crpalmi
9.Crpalmi
10.Captkirk42
11.tmgrnzx9r
12.Miconelegacy
13.FrankieFBCards
14.NLR4434
15.Crpalmi
16.tmgrnzx9r
17.TTyler516
18.Crpalmi
19.Miconelegacy
20.Miconelegacy
21.Axe725
22.Captkirk42
23.NLR4434
24.Miconelegacy
25.Captkirk42
26.tmgrnzx9r
27.TTyler516
28.Miconelegacy
29.Crpalmi
30.FrankieFBCards
31.NLR4434
32.NLR4434
33.Miconelegacy
34.Axe725
35.Crpalmi
36.Miconelegacy
37.FrankieFBCards
38.Crpalmi
39.TTyler516
40.Axe725
41.tmgrnzx9r
42.Captkirk42
43.NLR4434
44.Miconelegacy
45.Miconelegacy
46.Crpalmi
47.Miconelegacy
48.NLR4434
49.Captkirk42
50.Crpalmi
51.FrankieFBCards
52.Miconelegacy
53.TTyler516
54.NLR4434
55.NLR4434
56.Miconelegacy
57.tmgrnzx9r
58.Miconelegacy
59.Crpalmi
60.Axe725


I am also randomizing which of the two higher end packs are broken first. The rest will follow in chronological order with the 1972 packs and finally the 1975 pack. Here is the randomization (done 3 times);

1.1966 Topps Cello
2.1968 Topps Wax

So in the end the 5 packs will be in chronological order (with inserts saved for last - in order of pulls).

Hope this all makes sense to everyone but if not feel free to ask questions. It should be clear once we start breaking which I am hoping can be either Thursday or Friday?

Ok guys...ready to roll on this one. Different format on this one so hopefully everyone understands it but the randomized slots are the card that you get. It will make sense as we do the videos. 5 packs in all for this first break. You'll see we had an "issue" with the original pack #5 so I'll handle that behind the scenes and it was replaced with a full size 75T pack instead of the mini. Keep in mind that condition is even more important than star power as one nicely centered and conditioned card will probably pay for a slot or more.

No recap pics in this one so just the videos. We'll go in chronological order starting with our oldest pack first.

Coming up first is our 1966 Topps Cello pack...that in just a minute.

So next up was our 1975 Topps Mini pack but as you'll see in the video it was a reseal job. I am showing the video just so you see it but I was able to replace it with a full size pack (at twice the cost) but I should have known better so I'm covering the extra cost on it. I will keep the video active for just a day or so for you to see it but will eventually pull it. Here's the reseal pack;

That's it folks...we had to start somewhere. The 66T yielded a few nice ones with nice centering throughout. The 68T was overpriced at just 5 cards and I loved the 72OPC but I know that it's not everybody's cup of tea. Cards will be well protected and sent out so if you end up grading any of these please keep us all posted on any grade results! We'll try it again in a couple months and see if we can't do better as far as star power!

Thanks all for taking a chance on the first break for this group!

If you don't mind my asking, how were you able to tell that the mini pack was a re-seal?

cool. We got some pretty nice cards there. Congrats to all. It's a shame the '75 mini was a repacked job that Frank Robinson card is/was sweet.

Chris Thanks for a wonderful kick-off break for the group. thumbsup.gif

The cards were all roughly Ex condition with rough edges and just not consistent. Also the gum was broken in small bits that would add up to about half a piece.
