First ever FOOTBALL Affordable Group Break!

I haven't really gauged interest in doing a football group break, but with the NFL playoffs going on right now I've got football on the brain!  I found a nice little deal on 3 boxes of cards that we could break for cheap and yield five (5) autographs and/or memorabilia cards.

Not ever hosting a football break before I wasn't sure I wanted to go "all in" with full boxes, but this selection of 2011 Panini Timeless Treasures, 2011 Panini Absolute Memorabilia and 2012 Press Pass will give us 5 guaranteed hits to spread around.  

- Timeless Treasures will yield 3 hits
- Absolute Memorabilia yields 1 hit
- Press Pass yields 1 hit...possible Andrew Luck or RGIII auto!

** As an added bonus I'll be throwing in bonus cards of your team claimed - it's my way of saying thanks for the support! **

My thinking is to pick one team and have a 2nd team randomized.  16 total slots.  Cost per 2 team slot would be $7.00 shipped.  Claim a 2nd (two team) slot for $5.00.  To claim a slot please leave a comment below with your team of choice. 

Please send your gift payment via PayPal to flywheels at  Please note this is a different PayPal address than the one I'm using for February's 2013 Topps group break.  I'm also asking that you e-mail me your screen name and full mailing address with the team you claimed.

Boxes will be ordered once we make some headway on filling this up.  We need to at least come close to filling up this break to make this work so claim your team(s) now!
