    Low Budget Football Group Break Club - August

    This will be the first month this group break has been here on TCZ, and it looks like we are all full. Thanks to all of you who have joined. To everyone else, if you would like to get added to our waiting list just let us know here in the thread or PM me. All waiting list members are offered spots in the break in the order they're added to the list.

    Price: $20
    Payment Due: August 1
    Teams: 1 chosen, 2 drafted
    Break Method: Live@BlogTV, Video@YouTube

    Box Selection

    2012 Prestige Hobby Box (4 hits)
    2011 Timeless Treasures Hobby Box (3 hits)
    2010 Crown Royale Hobby Pack (1 hit)

    Card Distribution

    Cards will be distributed by one of the following methods, in this order:

    1) Team printed (text or logo) on the card.
    2) Team pictured on the uniform.
    3) Team the player currently plays for.
    4) Team the player played for longest.

    Multi-team cards will go to the member who has the most owned teams on the card. If that doesn't decide it, it goes to the member with the most total teams featured on the card. If that can't determine it, it will be decided at (between teams on the card only).

    Cards from old teams that simply moved to a new town will be given to the owner of the team that they moved to (ie. Houston Oilers = Tennesee Titans).

    Cards from unselected teams will be randomly drawn between all members.


    All "hits" will be placed in toploaders, magnetics, or screwdowns. Everything else goes in a team bag, wrapped in a single layer of bubble wrap. All of that is sent in a bubble mailer, with delivery confirmation (where available).

    Please keep in mind that the nature of group breaks, especially the low budget type, is that it is quite possible that all members involved may not get any "hits", or any cards at all. What you are purchasing, by entering the group break, is the opportunity to participate in the group and any cards that come with that opportunity.

    By the way, I just wanted to note some of the changes we're making starting in August.

    First, it will be 1 chosen team and we'll have a 2 round draft for the remaining teams. It will be a 2 round snake draft, meaning whoever gets pick #1 will get pick #20 and pick #10 will also get pick #11.

    Also, (and this rule doesn't count this month) whenever a member switches teams they will automatically be given the last pick in the draft. This is just to prevent monthly team changes.

    We'll also start voting on box selection so at the start of every month (starting now) everyone should mention if there's a product they want to do so we can try to get those included into some of the box selections before the voting starts.

    That said, I feel like we should do a box of 2012 Prestige this month. For the other box, though, I'm not so sure. We may have to go back into 2011 to find another box that could fit. So, my suggestion would be a box of 2012 Prestige and a lower end box of last year's stuff.

    Thanks for the offer, Tim. I'll drop you an email to get some prices from you when we decide on the boxes we're doing this month. I do like to hosts the breaks myself, though, just for the fun of it.

    Thanks Chris! I'll put you down on the waiting list.

    See Mike? We could go to 16 with one drafted team, and if we don't fill we'll still have more $$$ for boxes, and just random off any potential hits from left over teams like we do now. See? See? Told ya so :P (Man Im annoying huh? :lol: )

  15. He's just sayin......
