Welcome back to the Hobby Group Break as we continue our 5th year together! I have the proposed product list below. Let me know as soon as possible if you are dropping or changing teams so I can keep the list accurate. Note also that if you are interested in joining but your team shows as claimed just let me know as we may have an opening in our "Hobby 2" group for you!

Just a note about the draft slots, I budgeted for one less slot than we need so after the list is randomized and we run through the draft, the person with the last slot in the draft will be awarded the last remaining TWO teams. This will hopefully eliminate the downside of getting stuck with the worst team in the draft. These picks are offered on a first come first serve basis to members of the group. You can buy one draft slot per owned team but if you would like more just let me know and I'll add you to the list if slots are available at the end. If we fail to sell all the slots needed to participants of the group I will have to offer them to folks outside of the break, but this is as a last resort only.

Cost: $50 ($47 for each additional) Extra Draft Slot: $22
Payment Due Date: July 21st
Break Date: Sunday at 8:15pm(ct)

I was able to get them for you in the Casebreakers group which is the one where we bust cases of the new 2012 products as they release but in this one Vito has a stronghold on them for his brother so I'll have to leave that answer up to him!
BOBKONING

I just added this to the original post;

I'll put you on the "interested" list but we will fill as many draft slots with participating members as we can. If at the end we still have some left I will offer them to folks on the "interested list" on first come first serve basis.

For members of the break, you can request as many draft slots as you wish and I'll honor as many of those as we can.
Takeobeavis
I know that you get tired of hearing from me. But I do not think we should be doing 06 NT.
tyrodsports
I totally missed that I wasn't in this one. I will take my name out, sorry for the mistake.

Not at all as public opinion is what counts. That being said I get more requests for 06NT than probably any other product.

However...I am struggling finding a box believe it or not as the usual vendors are out. I hope to find it this weekend but just a heads up that it's a possibility we would have to switch it out. I'll keep you posted.
MWS
I hope you find one. I love that stuff!

Ditto. I take it that a lack of 06 NT would change our high-end line-up as well?

Payment for mine and my surrogate is on the way.

No, I was able to find 2 so we're set there. That 2nd box in that one could be on the chooping block if we can't meet our budget so I'll keep an eye on that as we may end up just sliding that box over to this break if it's not used in the High End.

I spoke too soon! I just got my shipment and they only had one box instead of the two so they refunded the overage. Now I'm back to looking for 2 boxes which may be trouble as nobody seems to have it! Anybody with Hobby stores around them that might have a few boxes on hand?
dvashun74
Hey Chris,

Add a draft slot for me as well (if we have any left).

Just a quick heads up that the Falcons and Vikings both came open in our High End #2 break. Product list is;

2012 Inception Case
2011 Limited Case
2010 Plates & Patches Case
crpalmi
Hey guys, we are less than a week away so I need to start finalizing the lineup. With fewer than planned teams claimed and quite a few draft slots left unpurchased I am having to pare down the product list by a few boxes. To get down to our budget I am taking out the 2010 Threads box. That should allow us to break the rest with where we are. As for the draft slots, we currently have 7 unclaimed teams and only 5 draft slots sold. We will start the draft on Wednesday so if we cannot sell any more the 5 lucky drafters will get to pick among the 7 unclaimed teams! It's a sure bet to get a good team for only $22! You can still join us whether you are in the break already or not! After the draft any hits, rookies, or cards of note that we pull from any of the unclaimed teams will be randomized among all the full paid slot participants (sorry, the drafted teams won't get you in those randomizations). Join us while you can!

By the way if we sell more draft slots we will add back in more product.

I will take a second draft slot.

Thanks Joe! That brings us down to just one slot left so we can allow the last draft pick to get the last 2 remaining teams. We will add a box back to the break...just not sure what yet as it'll have to match the budget.

Ooops, never mind. That actually fills the draft slots as we only needed 6. If nobody takes any of the unclaimed teams we will have an overage of about $25 which won't buy much. If we can sell one more team we can let Cardman off the hook for that last draft slot and have enough to add a box of Prime Signatures.

With the Falcons, Raiders, Ravens, etc. we have some good ones still sitting there!

Money sent for extra draft slot...arrival in 5 business days.

I'll take the last draft spot if no one objects.

It's all yours as I was looking to get out of my slot since I've had to pick up extras in the other breaks and I was running out of funds! We have almost enough to cover a box of 2010 Sweet Spot so I added it into the mix.
crpalmi
