__________________________________________________ _______________________________________________

This will be a 10 slots break hence pick 1 thru 10 snake draft style. Unlike most group breaks if you pick first for the first half (six boxes) of the case you will pick last in the second half (six boxes) of the case. Hence you will get something good either way. While the middle picks would get to feast on a lot of nice mid range stuff before it picked over.

So divided between 10slots, the break down for the case is $24. Shipping will be $5 to U.S. and $ 9 to Canada (will even include shipping internationally if folks out of North America wish to participate). So the final cost will be $29 or 33. I will put all pulls in soft sleeves, top loaders, snap cases, with them being secured in a team bag or a bubblemailers.

I want to offer this up as a fun site-wide low cost break. Better yet no one will get last pick in this break as we will be doing the case in 2 halves with the draft order flipped.

Given that this section has never held a group break, doniceage has offered to help us out! He will purchase the set upon selling out the slots, and perform the break. He is very popular for this in the hockey section, and has a great track record of breaking products for the site. I want to express a personal thanks for him in helping us with this!

This group break is now open for registration. Please post them as a trade in the trade manager with doniceage. Once it sells out, then pay him as you would any other transaction on the site.

Marked down for two spots. Don't worrying about sending the PayPal until we are closer to filling it up.

Let's bump this up and get some more interest in this! Group breaks would be awesome for our section, but we have to sell one out first!

The idea of an "Other Sports" Group Break sounds like a good idea, but in my opinion, I think you picked the wrong product for one. Cases of this stuff are dirt cheap because there isn't much in them. Topps tried to follow up their 2012 product and it failed. If you chose something more popular, like Topps WWE, you will probably get more interest.

We went with this one because it was cheaper to do, which we thought would drive more interest. We do have some Olympic collectors on the site.

Comfortably9numb can look into any non sport for a gb. The problem is even when people say they like a product and would be interested in a gb. Very few back it up with getting in on a posted gb when it posted.

Exactly. I am talking to GreenGoblin about getting something else going and trying another sport, so we shall see.

I guess my next question would be if many group breaks are done here. I was just in a GB with 552 slots and it sold out in less than a week. But multiple GB's take place every week.

This is a new initiative for the Other Sports section. Many of the other areas on the site have very popular group breaks (such as football or hockey).
