This group break will be done as a team break. That means there will be 16 slots and each slot will get 2 teams. The teams per slot have been predetermined based on odds of pulling a card from that team over the series run. I do not want to hear about how some slots are weak and others are stacked. I do not base prices based on who is in the set or the value of the cards. I base it strictly on the overall of being able to pull a card from that team.

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.

I will give until 6pm EST tomorrow night for members to select the slots (pair of teams) they are interested in. If multiple members are interested in a slot, a random draw will be held after the deadline to determine who gets the slot. Members may request as many slots they interested in. However, members will not be able to purchase more than two slots. This means if you post interest in 6 slots, but your name comes up in the random draw on the first and third slots, you will have reached your limit and your name will be pulled out of the randomizer.

If there are any slots available after the deadline, then it will become first come, first served...

Case will not be ordered until payments are received. I've had too many issues in the past with breaking early and not receiving funds. It generally takes 2 mailing days for me to receive my order.

For the break, my plan is try to do it via live stream for those wanting to watch it live. If I cannot set this up, I can record all 12 boxes, but fair warning...for some reason, my system takes almost 2 hours to upload a video so it would be at least 1 full day before all videos are up.

I will scan all hits before shipping. Unless requested, I will not send out the base cards. If you are interested in the base, please let me know. Otherwise, they will be donated to our giveaway stash of cards for the Nationals.

Good luck to everyone!!!

Put me on the waiting list for any of the $100 slots or the last $95 slot if it opens up

02-24-2009, 10:18 PM
Put me on the waiting list for any of the $100 slots or the last $95 slot if it opens up

There's two $95 slots open...if you want one, just let me know which one...

02-25-2009, 09:21 PM
I had a question about this:

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.

Would the redemption be allocated to the team that the player played for at the end of the season?

02-25-2009, 09:29 PM
What I mean by that is only the teams that the player played for would be in the running for it...

02-25-2009, 11:04 PM
BobNak24 has had to back out, so I did another random draw for the Chicago/Denver slot from the others that were previously interested and have updated the list...

Thanks! sorry guys, between Raymors high end santa and this i just didn't have the extra funds. Thanks for bein cool Enigma, hopefully i can hop in another one down the road. goodluck to all!

02-26-2009, 07:22 PM
Anyone else? If not...I will open this up to the members already involved to get up to one slot in each available section...however, I will not mix and match teams...but if you want to trade teams, be my guest...

#11 Roy Williams
02-26-2009, 07:31 PM
I'd be interested if you open this up to teams - 1 chosen and 1 random like Cardhippos.

02-26-2009, 07:32 PM
I'm not changing the format as some slots have already been claimed...sorry...

#11 Roy Williams
02-26-2009, 07:34 PM
Oh, so not sure what you are saying here... Are you saying if someone bought a $95 slot, they could take their unwanted team and swap it with another team in that section?

Just a bit confused.

02-26-2009, 07:35 PM
No...you would take both teams...however if you wanted to trade with another member for one of the teams they have, then I have no problem with it...

03-02-2009, 06:39 AM
To add some more life to this break, I have decided to breakup up the remaining pairs. There are still 9 slots remaining in this break. What you can do now is request a single team. After the 9 slots are filled, I will do a random draw to give those slots their second team. The price of the slot will be determined by the dollar amount of the higher priced team in the slot. So, say you reserve a $80 team and randomly get a $95 team, then your price will be $95 for the slot.

Also, I am removing the cap on how many slots you can have. Feel free to pick up as many as you want...

03-02-2009, 06:39 PM
Tony, I'll take the Steeler's too.

Thanks, Ryan

03-03-2009, 10:52 PM
I will close this off on Sunday...whatever team are left over at that time, I will just take myself. I will order the case next Wednesday. This means it will arrive next Friday. I have a card show to do next Saturday, so I will do the break next Sunday. If I can get the video equipment I need, I will do it as a live video stream break on Ustream. Otherwise, I will do a recorded video break of each box.

03-04-2009, 05:58 PM
payment sent thanks!

03-05-2009, 10:20 AM
can i sign up for this still? and if i am allowed why do some have 2 teams for the same price of one almost..just wondering..thanks

03-05-2009, 01:08 PM
Originally the break was set up in predetermined pairs of teams.
Then the break went to a "choose one team, get a random team format" to open up more teams to members. You still get two teams for the price advertised.

03-06-2009, 09:47 AM
When will payment be needed?

03-06-2009, 04:11 PM
Need payment no later than Wednesday next week...

03-07-2009, 09:18 PM
if im allowed to choose 2 teams could i get chicago and oakland..if i only sign up for 1 then give me chicago

03-07-2009, 09:20 PM
You can request as many teams you wish....I'll be doing the random draw for your second team with each team you have selected tomorrow night...

03-09-2009, 11:23 AM
Random draws are complete and first post reflected...

Please get your payments in ASAP as the quicker I receive, the quicker we can do the break...

In the meantime, if anyone wants to just pick up individual teams from the list left over, they are $40 each....first come, first served...otherwise, I'll just take them myself...

03-09-2009, 04:17 PM
Tony, give me Denver and Oakland as well!

03-09-2009, 11:01 PM
Tony, I will take the Giants too.

03-11-2009, 09:53 AM

Looks like everyone is paid up....case will be busted on Sunday...I will do videos of all the box. While they are uploading, I'll do scans or take pictures of all the hits and post them here.

If anyone wants any of the available teams, feel free to claim them, but I must have payment before I begin the break...

03-13-2009, 12:46 AM
Tony, give me Denver and Oakland as well!

03-15-2009, 07:04 PM

03-15-2009, 07:07 PM
Case is busted and box recorded. Uploading videos now. 1 video per box.

I will do scans in the morning as I have to get a replacement scanner tomorrow. However, I am going to post a recap here shortly box by box...

ouch....SPA strikes again :(

03-15-2009, 08:36 PM
Yeah I would have to say kind of a brutal box.
The Romo saved me but nothing from Miami (well 1 RC) and Giants.
Chicago, Detroit and Green Bay did well.

03-15-2009, 08:54 PM
where can we watch the video?

03-15-2009, 09:49 PM
Videos are uploading. For some reason, it takes around 2 hours per video to upload from my computer on YouTube....so with 12 videos, it'll probably be at least a full day before all are up...

03-16-2009, 12:01 AM
SPA is just brutal, was that 2 of 12 boxes with no real hits?

03-16-2009, 12:05 AM
Yup...shorted on hits in a couple of boxes...I'm contacting UD tomorrow about this as we did not receive a multi auto or a /499 Patch/Auto which is supposed to hit at least 1 per case...

it sucks on the missed hits! they couldve been for me!!! o well..thanks for group break!
Also, what happens if UD gives you the missed hits?

03-16-2009, 11:29 PM
Should UD make up for this and send me something, I will open the envelope on video. Whatever it is, it will go to the member who had that player's team. Should it be a multi team card, the rules posted on this break will apply...

03-16-2009, 11:45 PM
ok thanks for the quick answer. and another question when is the next break? i know you got presells but are you going to do anything recent?

03-16-2009, 11:48 PM
I don't usually post pack sales up once the product releases...but I have a request thread you can always post in and if a few are interested, I can see what I can do...

As for a group break, not sure yet...
