View Full Version : Group Case Break: 2008 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection Football (Presell)

01-28-2009, 10:49 PM
Disclaimer: This is a presell. Expected release date is 2/11/09.


15 boxes per case
1 pack per box
4 cards per pack


This group break will be done as a slot draft break. That means there will be 15 slots each slot will represent a set number of draft picks. WHatever slot you end up, that will be your picks in the card draft.

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 NFL 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.

If interested in joining, please select the slot or slots you are interested in purchasing. Slot 1 is the top pick, slot 2 is the second pick, etc.

I will leave this open for 48 hours. If there are multiple members interested in a particular slot, I will do a random draw for the slot. Members can only purchase one slot, so once you've had one assigned, you will not be entered into another other random draws for lower slots.

Any slots that go unclaimed after the random draw will be open to members on a first come, first served basis. If you already have a slot, you cannot acquire a second slot.

Payment is due no later than 72 hours after the trade is posted. No exceptions! Failure to make payment within that time frame will result in you forfeiting your slot and possibly not being able to participate in future breaks.

Once you post the slots you are interested in, you are committed to this break. However, if you lose out on all slots of interest, you do not have to jump back in on an open slot as that is your choice. Anyone backing out will not be permitted to participate in future breaks, so be prepared to be a part of the break before you post.

My plan is to do this break live on video and then post the break on the site. Scans will be provided during the posting of the break here on the site.

so if you get slot 1 you get the first pick of cards and so on?

01-28-2009, 11:45 PM
Yes...Slot 1 gets the first pick, then the 16th pick, etc...

01-28-2009, 11:59 PM
sorry if i'm not catching on:
how is your slot determined? do you just sign up and pay for your slot? or is it a random draft for slots and then you pay for what slot you get?

01-29-2009, 12:03 AM
You post the slots you are interested in...perhaps only the 1st slot appeals to you...at the end of the 48 hour period, I will do a random draw for any slot that has multiple people interested. If you are the only one interested in a particular slot, it's yours as long as you haven't been selected for a slot in a random draw. Once the dust settles and the first go around (the first 48 hours) is over, then all remaining slots are first come, first served until we fill out the break...

01-29-2009, 12:11 AM
I gotcha, thanks for making that clear. Let me think about it for a bit and i'll get back to ya if i'm in.

01-29-2009, 12:13 AM
Tony, you can put me down for the drawing or whatever for Pick#1.

01-29-2009, 12:17 AM

Is a money order mailed priority mail exceptable form of payment? I takes forEVER for paypal to clear for me.:rant: If so I'm interested in slot 3 and can mail this weekend.

01-29-2009, 02:20 PM
Yup...that would be fine...

The Kraken
01-29-2009, 03:07 PM
Sweet money order will go out saturday,thanks E! Can you PM your address please.

01-29-2009, 03:19 PM
Hold on for now...have to see if anyone else wants that slot as well within the 48 hour period...

Also, I don't want to send out payment requests right away unless we have a lot more people interested as I'd hate to sit on the money order...

I would like to take slot number 2.

01-30-2009, 11:46 PM
I did the one random draw (slot 1) that needed to be done...however, unless we get more interest, the break won't happen...

All empty slots are first come, first served...

01-31-2009, 08:31 PM
put me down for slot #4 Thanks

02-10-2009, 05:55 PM
Thought I would give this a bump!

02-13-2009, 07:12 PM
Tony, put me down for #5 pick. Thanks

02-14-2009, 11:22 AM
Just so you guys know, I might consider doing this in the next couple days, If I can see for sure that I have the funds... I'm not gonna lock in yet, but there's a good chance that I would do it...

02-18-2009, 10:36 PM
Product looks sweet, Im suprised were not getting more interest!

The Kraken
02-18-2009, 10:38 PM
Yeah I agree. I really want to do this one.:pray:

02-18-2009, 10:42 PM
Yup...giving it the weekend...if we don't get other takers, I'm going to have to cancel as I can no longer reserve a case at the same price...

The Kraken
02-19-2009, 01:11 PM
Come on folks! Lets fill this up!!!

02-19-2009, 01:34 PM
can you pm me?

will this case be ordered when the spot fills??

can you give me a "projected" case break date?

02-19-2009, 01:36 PM
Case will be ordered once all spots fill...case takes two mailing days for me to receive...case will be busted upon receipt of all payment...no way to project a date as it all depends on how fast the remaining spots sell out and how quickly I get payments...

The Kraken
02-19-2009, 02:05 PM
Just out of curiosity E,how does the draft style work? Everything is busted and you get to choose a card out of everything once it's your turn to draft? If so I like that idea!

02-19-2009, 02:07 PM
Yup...that's exactly how it works...

The Kraken
02-19-2009, 02:28 PM
Man....:rant: I wanna buy another slot :sign0020:

02-19-2009, 02:43 PM
can i buy two slots?

like two lower end slots?

02-19-2009, 02:57 PM
I'll see after the weekend...

02-19-2009, 03:06 PM
i'll be waiting :)

hope this fills...great case break.

I'll see after the weekend...

02-19-2009, 10:38 PM
I'll take the next slot, #6 it looks like....

The Kraken
02-22-2009, 02:59 PM
Sunday bump to get this filled!

02-22-2009, 09:32 PM
In an effort to help sell this out, I'm going to permit members the chance to purchase a second spot...if this does not sell out in 72 hours, I will shut this down, even if there's only one spot open...

02-23-2009, 10:13 AM
I will take the last two slots (14 & 15)....

02-24-2009, 05:21 PM
Give this a Tuesday bump. Lets fill it!

02-26-2009, 03:30 PM
Due to low interest, I can no longer secure the case to keep things at this price so I have no choice but to close this break...
