April 2013 Affordable Group Break Redux - ALL NEW Boxes selected!

Earlier this week I posted sign-ups for one of my Affordable Group Breaks, but it appears I may have struck out when it came to the product selection.  That said I went back to the drawing board and selected 3 new boxes.  Hopefully this time the boxes will be a little more attractive and more than 4 people will sign up.

Speaking of the 4 people that did sign up and pay for the old break - you have first dibs at your team selected.  If you choose not to go ahead with the new selections your money will be promptly refunded and your team will be released.

The break will once again be sponsored by the great guys at the Baseball Card Exchange!

1998 Pacific Online
- 24 packs, 9 cards per pack
- 750 card set
- 2 different versions of the top 20 players (alt. photo)
- Team Checklist (1:3)
- Gold Team Checklist (1:24)
- Web Cards (1:1)

1998 Pacific Paramount (Hobby)
- 36 packs, 6 cards per pack
Possible RCs include Jimmy Rollins, Troy Glaus, Carlos Lee & Kevin Millar
- Copper parallel (hobby exclusive) (1:1)
- Platinum Blue parallel (1:73)
- Cooperstown Bound (1:361)
- Fielder's Choice Laser Cut (1:73)
- Team Checklist die-cuts (1:37)

2000 Topps Gold Label (Hobby)
- 24 packs, 5 cards per pack
- Gold #'d 100 (1:68)
- Bullion (1:32)
- End of the Rainbow (1:7)
- Prospector's Dream (1:16)
- The Treasury (1:13)

After crunching the numbers it comes out to $10.50 per slot.  14 slots available.  Because the USPS jacked international rates nearly 400%, I'm asking those outside the U.S. to add an extra $5 for shipping ($15.50 total).  Additional slots can be purchased for a discount of $2.  Pick a team and the 2nd team will be randomized.  The faster you pay the sooner I can place the order and get to ripping packs.  If for some reason we can't get 14 people to join in on the fun then I'll refund everyone's money.

  1. I'll grab the Orioles. I'll send my payment and info shortly.

  2. I'm in for the Dodgers (the number of players per team for Pac-Online seems to go on forever).

    It might take me a little bit to send payment as usual. Sorry.

  3. Oh, never mind. gcrl beat me again.

    1. I have to see if gcrl still wants the Dodgers since they are a carry over from the failed group break. If they give up the Dodgers, they are yours night owl.
