Mike...read the last line...you can claim the Patriots for $75 and it will bump one of the teams listed off the list and make it a random team...

I did. mdw260 has already paid for one seat however and was willing to do the other for the full amount. Sorry.

The Kraken
02-09-2009, 05:38 PM
I offered to pay the full amount if you would have taken $5 of it through the mail. Ok then, if I pay $75 for the vikings and a peterson redemption is pulled does it go to me even if it's multiplayer?

CardHippo
02-09-2009, 05:40 PM
If it's multi-player, it will be drawn for at random among the seats that match the teams. An example:

Say it's a quad-auto multi-team /10 and there's (2) Vikings players (1) Colts and (1) Packers. Whoever has the Vikings will have a 2/4 or 50% chance of getting the card, and whoever has the Colts and Packers will have a 1/4 or 25% chance respectively.

So even if the packer person already has patch autos for nelson and brohm,or hornung or hawk lettermen autos...and the viking owner who has no rookie autos except maybe darius reynaud the viking owner wouldn't get the hit? Kind of unfair.

Not unfair at all. Nobody forced any of us to get into this. We all knew what we are getting into. He said in the rules that multiple players would be decided in a drawing. You don't have to buy and be involved..

Exactly why I'm asking questions now so I can know the procedure before hand. I just wanted to know that if someone got 5-6 hits out of a case for their team,and someone else paid for a team like the vikings and did not get any hits*(although i forgot about booty having a patch for the vikings) but a redemption was pulled with peterson on it,wouldn't it be nice for the vikings person to get something for their money?

CardHippo
02-09-2009, 06:13 PM
If a redemption for Peterson or any Peterson card for that matter was pulled, it would go to the person with the Vikings.

Sure it would be nice, but at the same time I am not going in thinking that we are going to pull kevin smith and barry sanders all day. I am expecting that the chances are slim that something from my team will be pulled. Its all just a crap shoot.

CardHippo
02-09-2009, 06:21 PM
In any event, with two teams a seat and 12 boxes worth of cards, you'll be getting some nice inserts.

The only teams open right now are the Eagles and the 16 other teams that are not on the list. I'm ordering the case first thing tomorrow and I'm going to get it rushed so we can do it this week. The breaks will be filmed and then a breakdown will be provided. I figure everyone will want the videos to be up first, that way you can experience the anticipation and excitement first hand. This will all be done the same day.

OK, I got a question to ask everyone involved so far...

So say a Chirography dual autograph is pulled and it includes Peyton Manning (Colts) and Eli Manning (Giants). Because the Colts were a first pick and not a random, should the card automatically go to the Colts or should it be completely randomized?

Anyone's thoughts?

BobNak26
02-09-2009, 11:33 PM
i'd say completly random...

CardHippo
02-09-2009, 11:36 PM
i'd say completly random...

OK, we'll leave it at that. Just wanted to throw the thought out there.

CardHippo
02-10-2009, 01:50 AM
A couple of thoughts... Any opinions would be welcome.

1) Since we got only one seat left and there isn't much to choose from, what if the last seat was able to pick both of their teams? Hopefully this would bring a close to the break and we could begin sooner.

2) Starting from the bottom of the list and moving up, what if players were able to pick their second team instead of it being random? So the lower seats (the ones sold for $75) would be able to pick fist, and then it moved higher up?

Just some thoughts. I know everyone is excited, as am I, and we all want to see this start a.s.a.p.

Cheers!

I think the random should just be done on the website and completely random.

bronco30_99
02-10-2009, 09:54 AM
I agree with completely random. That is the way it was set up, and the way we all were anticipating it when we signed up.

BobNak26
02-10-2009, 09:56 AM
its a cool idea, i think the 2nd teams should all be randomized. Just let it roll the way it is. someone will scoop up the last team.

wnysupport
02-10-2009, 10:02 AM
Quick question - can you trade your random team?

For example - you get the Bills as your random pick, and someone else gets the Cards. Can you agree to trade the random pick, if both parties agree to it?

jimdandy
02-10-2009, 10:55 AM
I would like to pick my second team but thats just my thought I dont want to start a ruckus over it. As far as that Peyton Eli chance my thought would be it would be between myself and the giants seat owner. Is that still right? But if no one paid for the Giants seat. I dunno. I'm just hoping for something good like everyone else. Its a gamble either way, just offering up my thoughts.

CardHippo
02-10-2009, 11:43 AM
BTW guys, I'm going to put someone who isn't involved in the trade in charge of randomizing the team (i.e. Enigma).

CardHippo

At this point, it looks like it will be kept the way it is.

In another case break I was in, we allowed it - BUT - it had to have both sides agreeing to it, either via both posting or both PMing to the person running the breaks.

Just figured I would bring it up, because I am interested in this - but wanted to know about the other team.

Thanks for your time

I think that should be alright as long as both sides are down of course. Shouldn't be a big deal.

Trading will be allowed once the remaining teams are drawn.

I won't be organizing this, but will require that once a trade is agreed on, that both parties PM me before we being the break.

Well thats the question I was wondering about a quad multi team auto with peterson and you said it would be a drawing. If it was a card with peyton and eli them it should be a drawing between the twp people that have those teams,regardless if it was a paid team or a random team. Like everyone said "It's a gamble".

CardHippo
02-10-2009, 04:22 PM
Definitely.

In any event though, the stated odds of a multi-signed card average at around 2 per case, so this isn't a huge issue as far as I see it.

are you gonna post the vids one at a time or wait til you bust all the boxes?

I'll be doing uploading them all together. But, each box will be shot separately due to YouTube's size limit. Each box is about 5-10 minutes worth of footage to shoot depending on how fast you crack open the packs. I myself like to go a little slower since tearing through them all fast can potentially cause damage if you're not careful.

I am not worried. Ya never know what sorta things can come up unexpected throughout the day!! Hopefully everything is alright with him. That is more what I am worried about. Most likely he got real busy or he could even be opening the boxes on Video right now. If he said each box is 5-10 minutes long and he has 12 boxes then he has a lot of video to take and download. An update would be nice yes but it will come sooner or later!

I know I've sounded kind of negative from the start but I don't think this is a good way to try and get people to order from you in the future. I know he said he was tired yesterday but I think if I'm running a business and am looking to get some business from this site,and was new to it as well. I'd be doing everything in my power to show how good I was to the customer. Especially asking for the money up front within hours of asking for a spot I would be a little better at keeping people updated about whats going on. I agree with the person that said it should have been done live,filmed and posted at that time. Not done,uploaded with the stuff mailed and on the way before we even know what was opened. The mailing can be done anytime. Now if anyone has any problems with this the cards are already on the way,and will have to be waited on to sort anything out. I mean I'm not saying dude is dishonest but you could open up boxes and if it's a good one,not even include it,and grab another one from your shop to add to the case to replace the one that originally opened. We have no idea of the time frame that the opening was done. I'm just saying this could have been done alot better.

Yeah I don't think I liked this one bit. I knew I should of went with my gut on this one. No case hits? No dual autos? No leatherheads? No retros? No jumbo number jerseys? Don't think I will be participating in these again unless a site admin does it.

Also the fran tarkenton chirography auto is in a vikings uniform,not a giants. So I guess I won't be getting that one?

I don't think you can blame not having those cards on Hippo. Have you seen how many cases have not had the dual and quad autos. It seems as though many of the cases I have seen busted have been shorted.
I'm sure if there were any shenanigans going on Hippo wouldn't have included the Mcfadden and the Ryan in the break and would have kept those.
Let's give the guy a chance. We all start somewhere..

I'm not involved, was about to, but glad I didn't. Anyway, to not have a case hit is one thing, not leatherheads is kind of suspicious because I see those everywhere, but having no videos after posting multiple times since you listed the hits is VERY suspicious.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. You have yours I have mine. Yeah some cases are short on some things,like this case was shorted on a few patch autos. To not have any High end cards out of all the subsets that are available just seems highly unlikely.

Yup you are correct we all have our own opinions. The patch autos average 8 per case and unless I am reading the list wrong, thats what we got.
It just seems like people have been jumping all over Hippo the whole time, and have not even seen the videos yet. I mean we did get 2 by the letters some sott and some other decent stuff. All in all I would say this was a decent case, not the best, but not the worst by far.....

I put the Fran Tarkenton in the wrong team, ONE mistake. I will make up for it by buying you one off eBay and sending it to you personally.

Also, let me just recap a few things for you here.

First of all, I understand that you're upset that you didn't get the hits that you were expecting. You knew from the start that this was a gamble and that not everyone would be pulling 1/1 auto nfl patch cards of their favorite team.

As for the case hits, there wasn't "supposed" to be three Level 1's either, but there was.

Upper Deck is notorious for their collating. There was one box in the lot that had only 1! autograph and that's it. It's all on video, plain as day to see.

Also, this case wasn't even that bad. If you want to see bad 2008 Upper Deck SP Authentic Football case breaks, I suggest you browse the dozen or so on YouTube and see how everyone else fared and how many "case hits" they all got.

If you add everything up, if you bought and sold the whole case, you would've broken close to even. Not many times you can say that if you've ever broken cases before.

There's been many times to where I've gotten every single case hit and more and they haven't even added up to HALF the case. Why? Because they were all crap players. That happens too, more often than we would all like to admit.

nice case of 08 Sp Authentic...I personally thought you should have broken it like others do..one box at a time....people have invested good money to see what they pulled...that is where the excitement is....you already mailed stuff out....people wanted to see it..BE PART OF THE CASE BREAK.....overall though, a nice case and good pulls..maybe next time will be more organized and I will get in on it..

I'll state it now. I GUARANTEE the next break will go completely differently. I wish I had done a lot of things differently in retrospect, but this is my first one and I think it didn't go too badly.

I was a day late (24 hours), and I informed everyone that before hand.

Exactly. If you bought the Falcons, you would've peed your pants with excitement. The Matt Ryan RC Auto Patch is THE reason why people open this product. It ranks among the highest priced cards being sold on eBay right now and the odds of anyone pulling it are very slim.

Throw in a McFadden into the mix (as in our case) and you're set. I don't think too many people would figure the odds of pulling even one of those very high, not to mention both.

Bob no offense, but you would NOT be ok with this if the Ryan wasn't pulled.

Your opinion is skewed because of it, and thats ok - but this break was horribly put together, it was horribly ran, and furthermore there was NO communication for near a day when the case was supposed to be in.

Honestly I dont' think this person should be able to run a break again, that is how bad everything was. Who cares about the hits, the process was flawed and terrible

I agree,

i am a gambler though and i understand the risk.

i'm also a coach...and i know things aren't done right the first time always.

I would be bummed out if i didn't get matt ryan of course.

But of course, I'm sure we all pulled out of the stock market a year ago, and knew that sub-prime lending would end up a disaster...
