Hey guys...time to try another Vintage Baseball Pack Busters Group Break. We did this a few months ago and followed that up with a Vintage Hockey break so it's time to try it again with BB. I recently opened a 1971OPC BB pack and just love the look of OPC cards as well as the fact that they are more scarce than Topps so the profits if flipping are quite nice. From that pack I pulled a Reds team card that graded a PSA 9 and covered the cost of the whole pack ($200) and a number of PSA 8's that will be pure profit. That's with no star power at all! Long story short...I'm trying for an all-OPC product list which I know is not for everyone but let's give it a shot.
The format will remain the same. As soon as payments are received we randomize the slot order using random.org. Say we have 10 slots purchased... we randomize the list of participants, and once randomized if you end up with slot #4, you will receive the 4th card pulled. We then randomize the slot order again and we do this as many times as we need to cover the amount of cards we expect to pull. Once all that is established we then randomize the order in which we open the products (although if any one product is particularly cheaper than the others that product will be placed last). That way if we don't have the same number of slots as cards, if anyone is shorted a card it will be from the least expensive product. Also, if any inserts are included in the packs those will be the last "cards" given out so once the final pack is opened we then go back and the 1st insert pulled would go to the next slot in line, and so on.
I know this may sound confusing but once we get into it I'm sure you will see how this is the most fair way to do it as well as a way to ensure that everyone gets something (although it's possible you may get a card less than others based on the random order of the final round.
All this will be established prior to opening any packs so everyone will know exactly which card they get. All pack openings will be on video and I will say the name of the person who will be getting the next card pulled as we slowly slide the cards off the top so everyone knows who gets what.
Cards would be well protected with the understanding that condition would be of primary importance!
So, that's the long read...next question is who would be interested in joining us?
Cost: $80 per slot (based on 10 slots filled)
Payment Deadline: September 7th
