16 Members. You pick your team. The 16 remaining teams will be picked by a draft held each month.

Fee is $25 a month. That buys $360-370 of hobby boxes each month for us to bust and pays for shipping & supplies.

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)

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 fail to pay by the DUE DATE, YOU will not participate in the break. Your team will be sold and your membership forfeited.

If you're interested in changing your owned team, you must do this before the draft. If you change owned teams, you will automatically be put at the bottom of the draft order for the current month.

TRANSACTIONS: Within ONE week prior to our break or soon after the break occurs, our breaker will create transactions for every member involved. Please make sure you confirm/agree on YOUR transaction thread.

FUTURE MEMBERS: Please understand that there is a waiting list. If you would like to add your name to this list, then please contact WestCoastSkinsFan . When a spot is relinquished, the 1st person off of the list is notified. Anyone who can pay the monthly fee can join. We have ZERO restrictions.

For those of you not in the know, 2010 marks the FOURTH YEAR we've been running this break. It'll be the 4th anniversary in June! I'd like to take a moment to thank some of our current/prior breakers in road_runner_1964, thesobons, bob_tcc, Monsta, picipat, and I'm sure I've missed one or two!

As we have discussed for the past two months, I would like to propose shifting things a bit this month. I'd like to make this a BIG break! Double the fees, double the good. We'd be looking at $50 per person for $800 in product! To help celebrate our 4th year, I'd be throwing in some extras myself. I know cbluem had talked about doing this a few months back, and I'd urge members to help make it a special month as well!

Just to verify, are you guys still in for this?
Cool_Hand_Flash
In with the New York Football Giants and down for a big break cool.gif
WestCoastSkinsFan
Glad to have you back as our foreign presence this time around, CHF!
Karlitos Way
Confirmed... Cool with the big break.
WestCoastSkinsFan
Excellent! Glad to have you back, Karl.

Can someone pin this, btw?

2) Big Break...thumbsup.gif
3) Pinned....(and lost two months, unpinned to reduce the clutter) smile.gif
WestCoastSkinsFan
Thanks, man.
mjda
I'm in, and am also good with a big break. smile.gif
Rhody_Red_Pats
Twice the break, twice the I'm in-ness!
WestCoastSkinsFan
Gotcha, gents.

In addition to a big helping of current products, what would you guys think about some older ones, too? For a big celebration, different years would spread out the hits a bit, and I think it'd be fun to revisit some products too.

Alternately, if you guys trust me, we could just wait until Blowout has one of their weekend sales, and find go for some of the more highly discounted football stuff. Thoughts?
Pejarox7620
I'm Definitely In! And Love the 2x the Goodness Idea!

You know, I always have your back...tongue.gif
dhoffius
I'm in and in favor of big break
WestCoastSkinsFan
Well, let's start talking box ideas! I'll be using standard Blowoutcards pricing to begin. And again, let me know how you guys feel about revisiting some oldies.

-2009 SP Authentic (1 patch/auto, 2 autos) $104
-2009 Playoff Contenders (4 autos) $111
-2009 Topps Unique (1 auto, 2 GUs) $111
-2008 SP Authentic (1 patch/auto, 2 autos) $105
-2008 Donruss Classics (1 auto, 2 GU) $87
-2007 Donruss Threads (4 autos/GU) $70
-2007 Playoff Contenders (4 autos) $79
-2006 Playoff Contenders (4 autos) $61
-2006 Limited (1 auto/GU) $39
-2006 Limited (1 auto/GU) $39

Total: $805

Thoughts?

I was considering Topps Platinum, but for MORE than SP Authentic, you basically get the same contents, but with less long-term value, and you pay $15 more. I dunno about that.

Also, I wanted to look into some interesting older sets like 06 SPX or SPA, but they're unavailable at the moment. 06 NT might also be interesting, but it's over $300 at the moment.
SuPaDuPa916
im in and comfirmed. also http://www.cardsinfinity.com/football-hobby-boxes.html has some good prices also on football boxes. some may be price a few dollars cheaper than blowout and some around the same or more, but he gives free shipping on orders over $250. just a thought =)
Rhody_Red_Pats
Sam - I like that box selection, except I would rather replace the 2 06 Limited with one 07 Limited. It's usually $75 on the weekend special.
WestCoastSkinsFan
Frankly, if you like this SORT of variety, with your blessing, I could also just go nuts on a Blowout weekend and see what's well-priced along the same lines. Would that work too?

One interesting way to do this would be if individual members could post like... a top 3 box selection from 2005 to present, so we can get an idea of what people want, and then try to fill as many want lists as possible?

Oh, and SuPa, could you check and see if he does any sort of online break sponsorship like Blowout does? The extra percentage kick-in would help a ton.
cbluem
I don't want us to stray away from 09 products. I don't mind a few older boxes, but that is too many. If we are going to do that many older boxes, I would rather stick with the regular 25 break personally. We actually be doing less 09 stuff in the big break than the regular one. Maybe 1 06 box, 1 07 box, and 1 08 box. This is supposed to be a break to get newer products not spend more to get older boxes.
WestCoastSkinsFan
Blue - Nothing here is definite yet. If you'd like, work up an alternate list that you'd like to do. I just did this off the top of my head this morning.
mjda
The box selection doesn't matter too much to me as long as we aren't doing all "rookie oriented" products. We should have a good mix of products with some nice legend/star hits too, such as Classics and Limited.

I second that. I would prefer a good mix of legends and rookies smile.gif and considering that it would be double up on the cash to spend we could go half 09 and half mix of previous years.
echunks
I am in for the Big Break.
cbluem
Here you go.

-2009 SP Authentic (1 patch/auto, 2 autos) $104
-2009 Playoff Contenders (4 autos) $111
-2009 Topps Unique (1 auto, 2 GUs) $111
2009 Classics(3 MEMORABILIA OR AUTOGRAPH CARDS (WITH AT LEAST ONE AUTOGRAPH) $75
2009 Classics(3 MEMORABILIA OR AUTOGRAPH CARDS (WITH AT LEAST ONE AUTOGRAPH) $75
-2008 Donruss Classics (1 auto, 2 GU) $87
2007 Playoff Contenders (4 autos) $79
2007 Limited(3 autograph or memorabilia cards(at least 1 autograph)$80

This puts the total to 722. We would then have 50-60 to let Sam pick some boxes on special. We could also cut one of the 09 Classics out to have 125-135 for Sam to pick some boxes on special.

This group allows for mainly 09(even one we haven't tried yet), some 08 and 07 boxes, plus some Classics and Limited to allow some legends to be pulled(Cut auto anyone?).

I also think it would be cool to try and do this over two breaks to spread it out a little. It sucked not breaking anything for January, but having two breaks within three days was cool. Just an idea to make it easier on the breaker.

Sam if you are breaking, send me your addy so I can send you a package with some random GUed and autos to open for the break. Maybe a little pre-bust warm up.
messingaroundok
I'm down for this. Can I claim the Cards?
thesobons
I'm in for the Double Break!

I like heavy on 09, with a couple older....2005??? Rodgers!
WestCoastSkinsFan
Blue - My only issue with this one is that 09 Classics is pretty bad compared to 08. I like where you're going on it, though! Let me work on something similar.
WestCoastSkinsFan
messingaroundok - We don't currently have an open spot. I can put you on the waiting list though, if you'd like!
dhoffius
I would prefer mostly 09 products
WestCoastSkinsFan
Here's another option, going at least 50% on 09:

-2009 SP Authentic (1 patch/auto, 2 autos) $104
-2009 Playoff Contenders (4 autos) $111
-2009 Topps Unique (1 auto, 2 GUs) $111
-2009 UD SPX (4 autos, 6 GU) $147
-2009 Donruss Classics (1 auto, 2 GU) $75
-2008 Donruss Classics (1 auto, 2 GU) $87
-2007 Leaf Limited (3 autos or GU, a least 1 auto) $80
-2006 Leaf Limited (1 auto or GU) $39
-2005 Leaf Certified Materials (4 auto or GU) $45

Total: $799

I tried for a mix of current products, and then older products that focus on vets/Legends.
WestCoastSkinsFan
And alternately...

-2009 SP Authentic (1 patch/auto, 2 autos) $104
-2009 Playoff Contenders (4 autos) $111
-2009 Topps Unique (1 auto, 2 GUs) $111
-2009 UD SPX (4 autos, 6 GU) $147

Total $473, with approximately $325 to spend on vet/legend-based products come a weekend special.


I think we've got 4 options up at this point. If you have a suggestion, let's hear it within the next day or two so we can get to voting!

With the addition leftover money, I'd be buying legend/vet heavy products from varying years that is well-priced on a weekend special.
