2007/08 Upper Deck Sweet Shot (http://www.cardsbythebox.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=276&osCsid=eaed936b97ececc8e1b7448685486a82)

Instructions

This group break will be done as a team break. That means there will be 15 slots and each slot will get 2 teams. Slot position will be slated via random order and the teams will be selected by a draft as seen below.

Cards will be divided as follows:
1. All cards will be sorted via the team whose jersey the player is pictured in.

2. If a card displays a player in a jersey other than an NHL jersey, card will be added to the pile of the team listed on the card. Should there not be a team, player will be placed with his current team. In the event the player does not have a team, card will be assigned to former team.

3. In the event there are multiple players are pictured on the card, then card will go to the pile that has the least amount of hits. If the number is the same, then the card will be randomly given to one of the teams.

4. In the event redemptions are pulled, they will be randomly given to one of the piles in the draft unless the redemption specifically states the player(s) the redemption is for.

You will get your choice of one team and you will draft a second team. I will create a random list of the participants to make a draft list. Since there are 30 teams, this means there will be 15 slots. If you are interested in participating, simply post that you want in and your preference of team. I will keep this open until Wednesday evening 11pm EST or once fifteen teams have been selected. In case we have a team where multiple members are interested, I will do a random draw of those members and one member will get the team. It is highly suggested you list more than one team of interest in the order of preference. Thus, if your first choice is randomly given to another member, you still have a chance for your next choice.

Once you have your team locked, this is a binding deal. Anyone backing out after the team is locked will receive a negative feedback rating and will not be permitted to participate in future group breaks.

The draft for the second team will be conducted once 15 slots are sold. If you do not make your draft pick in a suitable amount of time, you will be assigned the cheapest remaining team on the board. I will order the case upon receipt of all payments.

Price per team is listed below. Prices are based on the odds of pulling a hit card out of a tin. The higher the price of the team, the higher the chance that team will have a card pulled.

Montreal - 75
Philadelphia - 50
Colorado/Quebec - 50
Edmonton - 50
Toronto - 50
Chicago - 45
Anaheim - 45
Boston - 45
Los Angeles - 45
NY Rangers - 45
Vancouver - 40
Calgary - 40
Detroit - 40
San Jose - 35
Atlanta - 35
NY Islanders - 35
Pittsburgh - 35
Ottawa - 30
New Jersey - 30
Dallas/Minnesota (NS) - 30
St. Louis - 30
Columbus - 25
Minnesota - 25
Phoenix/Winnipeg - 25
Tampa Bay - 25
Buffalo - 20
Nashville - 15
Carolina - 15
Washington - 15
Florida - 5

All boxes will be broken live. Scans will be provided of all the hits just to show off the cards at the end of the break. If this goes well, we will look into other cases for the future.

Good luck to all who participate and here's hoping for some sweet VooDoo!!!

I'm definitely thankful that you are honest with this! My sincerest apologies to your ear.

I made my choice. Florida Panthers please! Probably won't pull a thing from them except maybe a base card, but for 5$ it still gives me a chance at a vokoun endorsed equipment and a chance to pay less than 100$ CAN if the exchange rates hold....

Although I wouldn't mind if the case had a Roy Endorsed equipment instead.

PLMK when you need payment.

Friday is looking really iffy at this point...as I would need all payments in before I order...

Payment structure will be the same in regards to how it will be based on the amount of cards in the set/odds of pulling one. There will a small change on how the second team will be done for the two teams slots. Won't go into it now as I'll wait until next month to unveil it.

One of the bones is broken so badly that the doc said worst case is he bone dies...not good. (this was written by his other son Adam)

You're right. In Sweet shot there are no dual player cards, nor 1/1

The 'hits' are considered either the stick singings / goalie pads (as in a real piece of stick/pad, not the stick shaped piece of wood) or the baseball canvas signings or the RC autos triple jerseys which occur in the first 100 of the /599 numbered cards.

There are also no patches and the lowest #'ed item you can hope for is an /15 (I believe if memory serves)

4pm break means I can't catch the tail end! I'm busy 4-5 so I guess I'll have to catch the breaks vicariously via the posts. I think I saw like three Roy dances. Since he appears in a Canadiens uniform, I approve. Best of luck to everyone!

Hey everyone...sorry for the delay, payment has been sent through paypal. Thanks for the kind words and understanding. For those who are interested, he had surgery late yesterday and according to the doctor he will be a walking hardware store. He'll be totally disabled for 2 months, no school (he's a senior) so it looks like he's going to have to graduate early (has enough credits).

Once again, thanks for all the kind words and understanding...Mike

I hope he feels better soon, being stuck at home for a few months is awful on the budget, way too tempting to buy boxes...beware ;)
