Link to June Break

Good evening. It's time to get TCC back on the baseball break map! I'm looking for 14 other members to own teams.

Cost: $20/ month
This break is open only to US members.


1st team is chosen on a first come, first serve basis.
For the second team: member names will be put through random.org to determine a draft order and each member will have the opportunity to draft from the remaining teams. You will own these teams and will carry them over to the next month. If someone drops out, their teams become available immediately with current members having first shot at them.

Multiple player cards will be determined as follows:
Players shown vertically will go to the team on the top.
Players shown horizontally will go to the team on the left.
Quad cards will go to the team in the top left corner.


The break will occur LIVE on Ustream.tv The channel is budgetboxbusters. You will receive all cards from your team.


I have completed one break on TCC and several on another site so join with confidence. If you would like to see an example of how my breaks go, please feel free to check out my Ustream Channel.

Product We're Busting This Month


1 Box 2012 Topps Gypsy Queen
1 Box 2011 Topps Chrome
1 Box 1999 Bowman Chrome- Series 1
4 Wax Packs 1978 Topps Baseball

Boxes will be hobby boxes purchased from dacardworld. We will receive free product which will also be part of the break. Members will get to decide free product we choose. 78 Topps Wax packs will be purchased from ebay.

In the future, members will have input as to what we break. We will follow this same format: 1 current, 1 past year, 1 from the 80s or 90s, some type of vintage packs where funds permit.

Funds due after break fills. If we get this filled, paid, ordered, and receive the product before the end of May, this will break in May and we'll begin getting things set for June. If it doesn't, we'll break in June.

Now, let's get this party started and remember:
Your mom wants you to bust wax with Budget Boxbusters!

Sounds like fun!

I'm in with the Yankees
KHarmon
Never been involved in one.....have as a matter of fact been against group breaks in the past. But, I am willing to try one to see if it changes my mind. I'm in with the Rangers.

EDIT: I am in on the brake providing the funds can be sent by money order or concealed cash. I do not do anything on paypal.


KHarmon
msw_sportscards
That will be fine. Thank you for joining. We'll try very hard to make your first break experience a pleasurable one. biggrin.gif

I do try keep the break rolling as well as adding informative tidbits and a little humor. Not sure how much fun they are to watch, but they're a blast to host! I can't wait to get this thing rollin'!

Thank you, sir. I hope with the older product maybe we can pass on some love for base and inserts as well as get a taste for chasing hits. Hits are great, but I still love the look and feel of those old cards.

Can I join with the Nationals?
msw_sportscards
May I ask why you have been against group breaks? I know I have had mixed feelings about them in the past. Most of my concerns have been that they usually only include newer product. The cost seems so high due to price of boxes and chasing hits. With those it seems if you miss a hit, you don't get much for your money due to limited number of base cards and inserts/ team in each box. As a team collector, I don't care if I get a hit or not as long as I get an ample amount of base and inserts to add to my collection. Just curious to see what other people's thoughts are.

My problem isn't necessarily with the "group break" concept, it just seemed that once group breaks started here they took over the boards. Multiple group breaks in multiple sports, every other thread seemed to involve a group break and every transaction posted seemed to deal with a group break. Just seemed to clutter TCC up and gets frustrating when transactions are created because when you check "new posts" there's a full page of sales and not very much other content.

KHarmon
msw_sportscards
Very true. There for a while it seemed like everybody and his brother wanted to host a group break. Things began to thin out once they realized how much responsibility and work go into hosting a break. Now, it seems like there are so few baseball breaks that you can't get in one even if you wanted to because they're already filled or just aren't available.

That and adding group break sub-forums into each of the major sports sub-forums. smile.gif The football group breaks used to overrun everything else.
msw_sportscards
Wow, less than 24 hours out of the gate and we only have 6 spots left! That's fantastic! I'll be hosting a 2012 Bowman release break on my UStream channel tonight @ 8PM CDT. If you haven't seen the new Bowman cards, feel free to stop by and take a look. I'll also be promoting this monthly break to the members of tonight's Bowman break. Maybe we can get some new blood here at TCC!
msw_sportscards
Did I jinx this break? It appears that the only free baseball product for our price point is 8 packs 2010 UD retail. 8 packs of 2009 Donruss Americana is also available. We can random the non-baseball cards. There is also a 2007 UD Baseball Rookie redemption set available.

Let me know what you all think.
chilly55
So these are coming from D&A. None of those really have anything. The Americana retail might have a relic in it. If you get a sealed 8 pack box, you got a shot as I was getting a relic 1 every 1.5 boxes or so when they came out (pulled 1 auto out of like 9 boxes). Not sure what is in the UD retail and the rookie redemption would be my last choice.

msw_sportscards
6 spots left and still some great teams available! Reds, Dodgers, Cubs, Brewers........
If we can get 5 more, I'll be willing to take another spot.
pavi39
I'll jump in with Brewers.
msw_sportscards
Great! Thank you. Glad to have you. That leaves 5 spots open. Who's next?

Ok, so we can go with dacardworld and get a few paltry packs of retail thrown on top of our order or we can order from Bearcat Sports Cards (a fellow TCCer) and have enough left over to purchase another pack of 78 Topps. Personally, I'd rather take the extra pack of 78 Topps than anything retail that D&A is giving away. Let me know what you all think.
bajmurray
I'm good with that!
chilly55
Extra 78 pack is fine.

Bill
KHarmon
Extra 78 works out good with me.

KHarmon
msw_sportscards
Still 4 spots left. These boxes may be in hand soon. So as soon as the break fills and we get the packs of 78 Topps from ebay we will break. Kudos to mrbearcat for his outstanding customer service!
ElectricFriar
I'd like to get in on this. Padres please.
msw_sportscards
Excellent! Thank you. Only 3 spots left to fill. If we can get it filled by Monday, we might be able to break next weekend.
msw_sportscards
3 spots left and still plenty of quality teams out there. I will be glad to cap this off with the last spot if we can get someone to cover the other 2. If we fill quickly enough, we may be able to break next weekend.
msw_sportscards
I have selected a 2nd spot with the Rays. That leaves 2 spots. If we get 3 who want in, I'll be willing to give up that 2nd slot.
2 more to go! Let's get this filled and get to bustin!
msw_sportscards
If anyone who is already in would like an additional draft spot for $10, we could split the last 2 spots that way as well.
chilly55
I guess I could take the Reds for another $10.00

Bill
msw_sportscards
Outstanding! That leaves 1 and a half spots left.

Are we running out of steam? 1 spot left.....just $20 for 2 teams from some great product.
mrbearcat
pm sent Marc...Thanks!
msw_sportscards
So....any thoughts on what we'd like to break next month? unsure.gif
ElectricFriar
Are you still looking to fill the last spot? If you are, I'll take it.
msw_sportscards
Awesome! Thank you.
This break is now Full
I'll start posting transactions.
