Picks 1 & 7 - A'sfan11 PAID
Pick 2 & 6 - DallasCowboysFanZ PAID
Pick 3 - parsetdx PAID
Pick 4 - TTYLER516 PAID
Pick 5 - ocsupertone81 PAID

This group break will be conducted using a draft. That means, once we get five people wanting to be on this break, I will enter all names into a randomizer and it will pick the draft order. First name gets pick 1 & 7, second name gets pick 2 & 6, and so forth...

Once the list is created, members can then trade their spot to another member over the next 24 hours. After that time has passed, all members are locked into their pick position. Once you post interest in the break, you cannot back out because you are not happy with the pick you end up.

Once the picks are locked, I will proceed with the break after the box has arrived. Hopefully, I can do it via video break. I will post the break here, along with scans if necessary.

To get in on this group break, you just need to reply to this thread stating that you are in.

08-11-2008, 06:45 PM
So I guess A's definitely likes #1.

DallasCowboys - if you don't want to pay the price for #2, I'd be interested in swapping.

08-11-2008, 07:28 PM
id love to move up .. to 2 or 3...even 4 i guess... anybody??

08-11-2008, 11:30 PM
sorry guys not movin unless you blow me away.

08-13-2008, 09:15 AM
is there anyone that wants the 4th pick???

08-13-2008, 11:41 AM
how much does this cost ?

08-14-2008, 09:37 AM
you can take over my 4th pick for $30

08-14-2008, 05:03 PM
i made trade you my 5th pick ..for your 4th pick if u want?

08-18-2008, 06:36 PM
I dont want to trade it, i would rather somebody else just buy it, but if noone else will i guess i will still take it

08-18-2008, 06:38 PM
id rather have the 4th pick.. i dont really want my 5th pick.. least that way ud pay less man if u trade?

08-19-2008, 12:28 AM
i definately dont want the 5th pick, its not about the money, i just would rather have 1 or 2 or nothing. I will still pay for the 4th if noone wants to take it over

08-19-2008, 12:31 AM
OK...picks are locked as it seems no one is trading up or down...

I will send out the payment details during the last week of August....

08-19-2008, 09:44 AM
Thanks Enigma for organizing.

09-07-2008, 06:35 PM
any update on this? when are you sending payment info?

09-07-2008, 06:41 PM
Dang it...I thought I already had....

09-08-2008, 12:51 AM
Paid - goes live this week right?

09-08-2008, 12:56 AM
Yup...got an e-mail that it will ship this week...

09-10-2008, 09:34 PM
2008 UD Premier Football Hobby Box Group Break Pick 2 & 6
Paid with PayPal...Thanks!

09-11-2008, 10:30 PM
paid. thanks tony. hoping for some nice Dmac Mojo!!!!!!!

09-12-2008, 06:52 PM
Got word that this ships next week...

09-17-2008, 08:55 PM
Shipped today...will be able to bust on Friday as long as everyone has paid...

09-18-2008, 12:24 PM
Tony... You have me down for 2 & 6 .. is that correct? Did you random draft all 7 or should I be 2 & 7 with A's having 1 & 6 ? Just don't want to screw up the system for anyone... just seemed a bit odd. LMK! //D

09-18-2008, 12:42 PM
Think of it as a partial fantasy serpentine style. So, the second slot gets 2 and 6 and the top slot gets 1 and 7. That's usually how I've seen Premier split out in a group break.

FYI - If you break Friday, I'll probably be able to get on Friday night and make a pick.

09-18-2008, 01:41 PM
Just wanted to make sure I wasn't getting the wrong pick with #6. Let's hope for Friday!... Go Cowboys!

09-18-2008, 01:44 PM
Tony... If someone doesn't pay I'll pick up a spot at 1 or 5.. Just LMK! //D

09-18-2008, 02:38 PM
A's Fan said he paid (back on Page 3 of this thread), so I think Tony may just need to update the list on Page 1. I couldn't imagine A's Fan not paying considering all he's talked about is pulling a McFadden! :party0053:

However, I think the 5th pick person disappeared never to be seen again.

09-18-2008, 02:42 PM
A'sFan11 was incorrect with his comment as I never received payment...ocsupertone81 is supposed to pay me tonight...

09-18-2008, 04:41 PM
you did recieve my payment right?

09-18-2008, 06:46 PM
Yes...just missing theirs...

09-18-2008, 08:47 PM
Hmmm, well I know I'd also be interested in the first slot as well - maybe you should randomize the 4 participants to get an order and the top guy gets to buy it or pass, right down the line until it gets claimed.


09-18-2008, 09:36 PM
i messed up and did not pay for the box, eventhough i thought i did. i apologize for the confusion bt i will be paying the paypal tonight. thank you and sorry for the mess up.

09-18-2008, 11:22 PM
ill do this if you need me to because i said i will.. but i can get a box of this for $175... so im almost tempted to just get myself a box instead.

what all are you guaranteed? the 5th pick ...will i just be getting a base??

09-18-2008, 11:47 PM
You guys need to commit more to what you sign up for.
Just because you don't get #1 spot you start moaning about it. I've seen this already on few of Tonys group breaks. You know it's a gamble and there are no guarantees other then a randomized spot.
Tony I'm sorry for barging in on a thread like this, but I just had to comment on this, it ticks me off to read posts like that lately in almost every group break with bottom picks.

09-19-2008, 12:04 AM
I agree Trucker - sometimes you get the top pick, sometimes you get the bottom pick. But no matter what you should own up to what you committed to. If you didn't want to gamble with the group break, then you should just go ahead and buy your own box. But you can't tell people you're going to do one thing, and then don't follow through and go do another. That's not right.

09-19-2008, 12:08 AM
you know what guys.. i dont appreciate the trash your talking! did it ever occur to you there may be other circumstances behind this as well.. i said if nobody else wants it .. im more than happy to take it ..but i at least thought id throw out the opportunity for someone else...

09-19-2008, 12:33 AM
OC- What trash talk.. its just honesty. I had the same compliant in your break on TCC where you said I was randomized into the last spot, and then again randomized out of the two top picks and you told me that was the breaks. Seem strange since their was only 3 of us in the break that I'd get last spot all the way through... even though I wasn't allowed to see any of the randoms being done you said I should just "Deal With It." Now you know how I felt in your break on TCC... but you didn't seem to care about my concerns there, but now you have the last spot and you don't like it... Seems like Karma is a *****.

09-19-2008, 12:38 AM
One thing I can say, I bet there would be no "other circumstances" had you been selected at number 1. Please, do you take us for morons ? I'm done talking, I do not want to hijack this thread by commenting on your poor excuses.
I'll let Tony handle your situation any way he wants.
I said my piece.

09-19-2008, 01:24 AM
Trades are confirmed...payments are expected...non-payment will lead to not being able to participate in the future as well as negative feedback...

09-19-2008, 01:25 AM
did i once say i didnt want in the break?? all i said was if someone else wants the spot they can have it... i never once said i wasnt paying!

so basically your the ones Pi$$ing and moaning ... and that really makes me not want to be in this ... the purpose of a group break it to have fun... and this experience was fun until you started running your mouths!

09-19-2008, 01:46 AM
see.. told u ..its paid for!!!

now i expect to hear no more "comments" about the whole thing fair enough? I want to get the break done.. i prob wont be around when it happens..and wont be on until later on.. but im 5th pick..so it shouldnt matter!

09-19-2008, 01:50 AM
Got it...

Just waiting on A'sFan11...I'll conduct the break once I have his payment...

Should have the camera, so I believe I'll be able to do a video break...

09-19-2008, 07:27 PM
pretty sure im paid!!!!!!!!! whens this going to happen? today?

09-19-2008, 07:47 PM
im around.. i got 5 boxes to videotape myself .. some group breaks and stuff..but ill be on

09-19-2008, 10:15 PM
is this getting done tonight or what??

09-19-2008, 11:00 PM
I'm on and off tonight in case this gets done I'll be ready to pick.

09-20-2008, 01:37 AM
o well.. see and im getting yelled at cuz i was supposedly holding things up... i hope this gets done today!!

09-20-2008, 05:39 PM
did you recieve it now tony? im sorry for the confusion guys.

09-20-2008, 10:59 PM
Final payment received...would have posted sooner but I've been out all day celebrating the NC State victory over ECU today...

09-20-2008, 11:25 PM
Nice pull on that 8 sig, overall great box, something for everybody.

09-20-2008, 11:29 PM
absolutely sick on the 8 player!

09-20-2008, 11:45 PM
WOW - what a hit! Nice pull there A's!

thanks man:party0053::party0053:! its probably the best pull of my life and i didnt open the pack!:sign0020:. it is just a great box overall. the mendenhall and slaton are nice and the Anderson is pretty sweet as well.

09-20-2008, 11:45 PM
How much was it a spot?

09-20-2008, 11:57 PM
How much was it a spot?

it depends on what slot you get. i was in the first slot which is picks 1 and 7. it cost me $100. then pick two is about $60 and etc.

09-21-2008, 12:00 AM
it depends on what slot you get. i was in the first slot which is picks 1 and 7. it cost me $100. then pick two is about $60 and etc.

but a box is only 210

thats almost the price there

09-21-2008, 12:23 AM
but a box is only 210

thats almost the price there

i dont think pick 2 to is $60 then. it might be $50, then $35, THEN $25, then $25 than $15. idk though.

09-21-2008, 02:06 AM
Somebody help me out here .. I can't read the numbers n such.. I know the redemption is done... ARG!! What in your opinions is the next best card... They are hard for me to read numbers and such... and not sure who some of these guy are. I'm into Cowboys, but need some good trade bait too! ... Ideas please....??

09-21-2008, 02:15 AM
I would take the Steve Slaton, but there are like 4 steelers fans on here so prob. that one.

or u can take the ware....

oh and ps....


09-21-2008, 02:23 AM
I think I'll sleep on this one.... and get my pick out in the AM tomorrow. I'm in CA, so for you guys on the East Coast, don't freak if I don't pick at 8am your time! Great Pull A's.... If I hadn't pulled a Romo Auto in another break this weekend I'd be bummed!

09-21-2008, 02:29 AM
thats ok man. i was in another break this week, it had 6 different boxes from 08 stuff(icons,heroes,absolute,TSC,Threads,select). so i bought one slot which got me one random team. well i was lucky and i got the Falcons (Mattt Ryan of course). so my luck not one ryan gets pulled and two Dmac autos get pulled from the 6 boxes, so i kinda deserve a nice pull like that. LOL. sleep on it definatly!

09-21-2008, 09:01 AM

Mendenhall would be obvious next choice IMO.

09-21-2008, 01:16 PM
I'll take the Mendenhall Auto for Pick 2

09-21-2008, 01:40 PM
I was hoping the 8-Auto would fall to third :winking0071: but since it didn't, I'll take the Steve Slaton.


09-21-2008, 04:41 PM
I was hoping the 8-Auto would fall to third :winking0071: but since it didn't, I'll take the Steve Slaton.


lol. well the slaton isnt bad for 3 pick. he had a nice day today!!!!!

09-21-2008, 04:50 PM
I guess i will take the anderson 1/1 with the 4th pick

09-21-2008, 07:26 PM
i cant make out the number on the triple gu... can you let me know that?

09-21-2008, 08:14 PM
im pretty sure its 10/10 from what my eyes can see but you might want to wait for tony to give you a definite answer

09-21-2008, 09:07 PM
i think so too a's.. most likely ill be taking that one .. (obviously its that or the norwood..) but i need to confirm first

09-22-2008, 12:38 AM
still no confirmation... tony the triple jsy (ware,hawk,sims) ... whats the numbereing on it? we all belive its 10/10 can you please confirm?

09-22-2008, 02:04 AM
I'll take either the Triple Patch or the Norwood for the 6th pick depending on what OC takes. That would leave the Rice for A's and close this out! Great break everybody, although the 8 Auto Card was the huge card, I think over all everybody did pretty well. Thanks for your efforts Tony.. LMK when you do another. //Don

09-22-2008, 02:14 AM
im not trying to hold everyone up.. i think im taking the triple most likely.. if its 10/10 i def want it...

which means cowboys will end up w/ norwood and then the rice goes to mise ocho -autograph! lol

it was fun.. thanks tony!

09-22-2008, 12:12 PM
Triple jersey is numbered 10/40. Looks like I forgot to type up the cards that were pulled...hectic weekend, barely on...

09-22-2008, 12:26 PM
ill take the triple jsy then ..thats fine!

09-25-2008, 07:14 PM
recieved the card today tony!!!!!!!!!!! thanks man!!!!!!

09-25-2008, 10:30 PM
got my card too.. its f/t if anybody's got any good giants stuff.. again i got the triple jsy 10/40 hawk/ware/sims
