May 2012 "All Donruss" Affordable Group Break - Teams start at $4 shipped!

For this month's Affordable Group Break I wanted to change up the formula I've been using over the last few months.  I'm going with an all Donruss theme this time around for starters. 

I'm also changing how the teams are claimed.  This time around you're only signing up for one team.  This will bring the cost per team down a bit and you won't possibly get stuck w/ a team you don't want.  Several of the teams that don't seem as popular will be discounted right off the bat with tiered pricing.  For the teams claimed that weren't around in 1986 I'll do my best to throw in some extra cards for you.  Trying to be fair to everyone.  Keep reading for all the details.

This month's break is again sponsored by the fine folks at the Baseball Card Exchange.  First up let's look at what's on the table this month.  How about some old and some new?
