Confirming Caps for July.


I think someone mentioned doing Champs again for this break I agree that is a good product to repeat even with the Non-Hockey cards, but those can be randomized so no biggie.

In.. but!

Can I be added to the waitlist? For the Wings! Im letting Paul have 'em biggrin.gif

So, in with just the Islanders smile.gif
redwing40
Thanks Mark, so I will take the Wings for July, but will drop the other spot this month, just can't afford two spots this time around!

So just to be clear, Paul now owns the RedWings? You are not loaning them, you are releasing them? Just want to make sure, so I make the correct change. Thanks.

If I understand Mark's post correctly and get confirmation, will make the change. If that is the case just to make sure I understand, you will have the Wings and drop both the Flyers and Leafs? Thanks.

Still looking for check-ins and opinions on boxes you would like to see in the groups?
redwing40
Can we mix some year's up, little of last year and this years, maybe some high end boxes of last year on sale, more hits for the buck also!

I wil check with Sports Card Central in Michigan and see what I can find if you would like to try them for boxes Brian, Gonna stop by the place after work, the warehouse in Warren Mi that is, not Orchard lake Rd store, Going straight to the source. The warehouse guy is just partners with the Orchard lake store, let ya know soon.

I was thinking of mixing up the years as well this time if we don't have any new products that the group is interested in, as long as I can work it to fit the budget. The only new product is Titanium and we might be better off waiting until next month to see if the price drops as everything else by Panini has dropped: Contenders was $108, now $90; Elite was $120, now $90; and Pinnacle was $72, now $43?? And honestly I have not been impressed by Panini, the lack of CS on my redemptions and my break of Contenders makes me not want to buy their products, but it is up to the group what we open. That is why I wanted opinions on what boxes the group likes and wants to see openend again (if any).

I would still like to try a box of SPx if it is not too much, currently it is $100 for 4 hits (1 rookie auto gu, 1 rookie gu, 1 winning materials gu, 1 winning combos gu). Not sure if there is any interest in Titanium ($100) as well?

As for the dealer in MI, it would depend on what he has and what prices. The problem is finding the peices to fit our budget and finding someone with those products.

If we could squeeze in either an SPX, Titanium or Rookie Anthology, that would be cool.

All three are in the same price range. Titanium gives you an additional hit, but I am not that impressed with the GU from Titanium. Rookie Anthology sounds interesting if it is released next week.

Each 16-Box Case will contain the following:

Rookie Cards are serial numbered to the player's jersey number!

2011/12 Panini Rookie Anthology Hockey Hobby Box $100 presell (releases 6/27/12):

Are you guys trying to trip me up??? laugh.gif

Here is the original C:
Group C:
11/12 SPx $100 4 hits
10/11 Decade 80s $80 6 hits
11/12 Certified $80 4 hits (or something else in the $80 range)
Total $260 14-15 hits ? rcs

I take it you want to remove the Certified for either:

Group C1:
11/12 SPx $100 4 hits
10/11 Decade 80s $80 6 hits
09/10 Champs $60 4 hits 5 rcs
07/08 BAP Blaster x2 $16 2 hits
Total $260 16 hits 5?rcs

or

Group C2:
11/12 SPx $100 4 hits
10/11 Decade 80s $80 6 hits
10/11 Pinnacle $40 4 hits 4 rcs
07/08 BAP Blasters x5 $40 5 hits
Total $260 19 hits 4?rcs

I actually like either of those, although I think the C2 is a little better since we did Champs last month and this gives us something different.
northicehero99
Any other thoughts on boxes?
redwing40
OK, I like Group C2 also, just not impressed with Pinnacle, but C2 does have more Hits!

You don't have to change your vote. I am not big on Pinnacle, but we just did Champs. Whatever the group wants works for me.

Just one..

How about less choices instead of this (honestly) confusing thing-a-ma-jig?

Like maybe, option A, option B, possibly option C.. and thats it.

Just a thought, dont think anyone would mind if it was fixed selections and then a choice between the two, or three.

OK. I am just trying to find products we all are interested in. I have my own personal dislikes and I am sure others do too and I just want to be fair so that everyone in the group has a voice.

Id just like to get a shot at Tavares base from every product over the course of a year, no need to have "I'll take option a + number three from option c with a side order of champs, please" for every member tongue.gif

Tavares base, base, base??? laugh.gif Sorry, it was just one of those things on the side orders where, I like quantity in hits, others like quality, so I did not want to say lets open 7 BAP blasters with 7 hits versus say Champs with 4 hits for roughly the same price. Also, I am sure there are some products people are tired of seeing (Luxury Suite is one we did a lot of, along with several others).

Group A.. I really wanna see SPx and Anthology.. And I strongly dislike the titanium product..
