You get all base, inserts, gu, autos, ect of your teams that is pulled from the boxes.

Duals go to the member who gets least amount of Autos & Gued from his owned team. (of course the member must own the team that is part of the dual smile.gif)

Duals pt 2 - If a dual involves a owned team and a drafted team...the owned team gets the card.

Duals pt 3 - Tie - Serial Numbered cards are counted along with the autos & gued cards.

If you don't plan on continuing with this group - please LMK ASAP!

I take it SPx will definitely be one our boxes that we are breaking. What else??
WestCoastSkinsFan
Man, I know we SAID SPX... but everything I've seen from it has been pretty awful, so far.

That being said, I'll still do it if everyone else wants to, just might want to think about it a little harder.
flea
no fairs fair spx was put off & people want it
Pejarox7620
yeah i guess but if we want the best bang for out buck SPX looks horrible this year. But ill still break it i dont mind smile.gif
Rhody_Red_Pats
Yeah, we should do an SPX, but maybe not more than one box if its not too good this year. Maybe more Threads would give us the best bang for the buck.
flea
couldn't care less about bang for your buck to be honest LOL

Eliptic

tileman
as far as you know, is this upcoming break full or are there a spot or two open?
Avaholicforever
I'm in, I would enjoy seeing some SPX and Threads, other than that I'm up for anything.

I'm in this month. I'd like to do SPx but I have to agree that it looks iffy at best. I'm cool with whatever though. I love Absolute and Bowman Sterling as well. Lets do it boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm pretty sure it'll be all filled up. They even have a waiting list. You might want to request that you be added to it. Last I knew there were like a dozen or more people on the list already, but some are only waiting on certain teams.
WestCoastSkinsFan
Ugh, no Sterling please. Select looks like a good value this year, and I always love Absolute!
picipat
I think Sterling looks decent. So does Absolute. I'll tell you what looks great for October's break and that is Gridiron Gear. I can't wait for that stuff again this year.
Pejarox7620
Absolute and Select sounds great!
Kiansdad
SPX is grandfatered in from last month (but it does looks like they found what everybody didnt like about last year,winning materials parallels, and then increased that).

I like Absolute and Topps Chrome too.
thesobons
I agree let's do one box of SPX and then look at Absolute, Select, Classics, Threads. Upper Deck has sevral hits in those boxes too..??
WestCoastSkinsFan
An early thought for breaks...

08 SPX, $153 (7 GU, 2 autos, 1 auto/GU)
08 Score Select, $65 (3 autos)
08 Donruss Threads, $75 (4 autos/GUs)
08 Upper Deck, $64 (3 GU, 1 auto)

thesobons
I like that Sam!

Let us know if you like this one guys!
Kiansdad
That box selection looks good to me!
Pejarox7620
No Absolute? How much is Absolute?
WestCoastSkinsFan
I think it's $123. I'd like to add it too, but I'd really hesitate to have both that AND SPX in the same break. It really limits the amount of boxes.
echunks
Does anyone know how Topps Chrome looks this year? Seemed to do really well last year.
thesobons
Rareluck open 10 packs and got an Auto and Chris Johnson RC & Refractor among others...look good.

We try to add in a Chrome or some of the others in the next few months.
picipat
I like the box selection that Sam came up with. But I wouldn't mind squeezing Absolute in sometime. I could really care less about Topps Chrome but I'm cool with whatever.
cbluem
I personally don't like the selections.

SPx looks like Crap(I understand everyone wants to try it, but ABSOLUTE is always good)
Select is just a cheap looking product every year
Threads was good to us
UD-would rather get rid of this and Select to do Absolute
cbluem
It seems that everyone wants to bust those.

Just throwing these two out there:

1)
2 boxes of Absolute-245
1 box of either Threads or Select-65-75
Plus a couple packs of Sterling with what ever was left

That gives us three possible new products without having to get a full box of Sterling

2)
SPx-153
Absolute-123
Threads or Select-65-75

WestCoastSkinsFan
cbluem - Frankly, I agree on SPX. I don't like it. But others do, so it's something we should work in if the majority like it. I'd rather do Absolute and upgrade something else, myself.

Select, on the other hand, I disagree on. I actually love the look of the product, but the former single auto in a box made it hard to spread the love. 3 autos, and I'm in.
Pejarox7620
i agreed completely with Westcoast, I dont like Spx this year...its seems like its rediculously hard to hit a good rookie and the single patches and jerseys make it sorta a filler product...Id say we can do one because everyone wants it, i like Blues #2 because we have absolute...and Select and threads are nice. The only problem i have with topps chrome is that it only has 1 auto per box so its not very good for a group break....
Eliptic
....not a fan of SPx this year either.
Eliptic
Who's breaking this month?
monsta
I guess the best thing for us this month is a poll to vote on.

I know some of you did want to break SPx but most seemed to be turned off after seeing it's 1000000000 parallels.

We know I want some SPx, how about all SPx? laugh.gif

Threads and Absolute are also good with me.
WestCoastSkinsFan
If pushed, I'd say no on SPX, I just don't like it. But if it's going to irk people, I'm okay with it.

If you can do it on ustream then woohoo we have a breaker! tongue.gif

Also - Diamondcards has asked me if we would think about purchasing our boxes from him this month. After we do figure out what we are breaking - I'll send him a message.

I'll try and get a poll up tomorrow guys. smile.gif

Oh I can do it on Ustream.

Awesome. smile.gif

We have our breaker for this month.

Only the boxes and draft remain....

How about I go ahead and do a random.org draft order. Since this is our 15th month running - after all members involved are entered - I will click randomize 15 times. smile.gif

Back in a moment with the order....
monsta
All 16 names have been entered into the list generator at random.org.

I will now proceed to click randomize 15 times.

Good luck all.

Congrats to Robert (thesobons)!! You have the 1st pick.
