One of the stranger breaks I've ever been a part of! Pictures coming up shortly. I'm going to go work on them now.

And then, the insanity of...

SIX FREAKING REGGIE MCNEAL AUTOS. This is only numbered to 299, so we just pulled roughly 1/50th of the full print run.

Thanks for joining me, everyone. Packages shipped out this weekend, so keep an eye out. They should be arriving shortly.

Any thoughts on other inexpensive cases that people might like to break down the road?

What else is out there with a bunch of hits for a real cheap price per case?

That'd be a bit rich for this type of break, at least for me. That's over 3 times the cost.

Suppose that I was looking at a half case then lol.

2009 UD Philadelphia 14 box case for about $500. I know it's more than this case, but it's also 14 boxes.

1 auto, 2 relics per box and the auto checklist isn't bad at all.
Each case will have 2-3 buybacks (which is just cool all on it's own), a Chicle auto, and a 5x7 auto. Short prints galore. Yes, there are non-sport subsets, but they can be randomed or equally distributed if people want them (or, you could even sell a spot for just the non-sport subsets). Rookie class isn't terrible.

Take a look at the checklist. Big name auto possibilities.

That's more my speed. Good idea!

Yeah, I like sets like this... And I think the autos are on card, too, which is great.

I was not thrilled with the hits from my box I opened of this, but I did like the base product and was messing with the set. There are way too many sps between the rookies and the odds subsets to build it out of a few boxes.

I would be interested, just wondering how much interest you will get as you will need roughly an average of $16-17 per 32 team format to get to a goal of $500 and there are only 42 "on average" hits to be expected or 1.3 per team if every team were to receive a hit. I liked the 06 HP just because of the odds of getting a hit was good no matter what team you picked, even if a good bit of the hits were not worth much.

sahetu
If it goes by bid, I can see some teams going for $5 and some going for $50 (it's a gamble that the AP, Mannings, et al auto hits, however). I think we'd have to break down the checklist and see what teams have more hits, which teams don't (and in that case, perhaps merge team spots for those). I would almost be interested in just a non-sports slot to build those subsets.

I like the 2011 Upper Deck Sweet Spot for $455.

36 auto's per case!
WestCoastSkinsFan
I didn't even realize that we'd need a non-sport slot for Philly. Forgot about all of those SPs.

Not a big fan of Sweet Spot from that year, by the way. A lot of damaged cards right out of the box and the quality of the cards in general was sub-par

I like Philly more, but I think there were a decent number of redemptions in that set, and if so, we're out of the range of having those redeemed.

Regardless, I don't think this will be something I do right away. At least a few months down the road so I can recover, and my wife can forgive me for breaking 15+ boxes in 3 days.
