October Group Break Sign Ups!

I've been told by several participants over the last few months they enjoy my "cheap" group breaks and I really appreciate the feedback.  I know money is tight for a lot of collectors so I always aim to offer something that is slightly different than other breaks that happen in blogger land.

That said I've got 3 boxes for October's break.  2 of the boxes (1998 Skybox Dugout Axcess & 1998 Fleer Sports Illustrated World Series Fever) I toyed with the idea for past breaks and there was some interest so I've decided to include those.  The other box (2007 Fleer) is more of an afterthought of sorts as I got it for a great price on a recent Blow Out Cards sale.

Dugout Axcess will yield 24 retail packs / 12 cards per pack, SI World Series Fever will yield 24 hobby packs / 6 cards per pack and the box of 2007 Fleer will yield 36 retail packs / 12 cards per pack w/ 2 rookies & 1 insert in every pack on average.

The pricing this time around will be tiered in an effort to sell more teams so I'm not stuck with a stack of cards.  Prices include shippingIf you mention this break on your own blog I'll throw in something extra into your team's stack.  The Braves will be claimed by the host as usual.  To sign up please leave a comment to claim your team or teams.  Payments can be sent via PayPal to colbeykatie at  Please be sure to mark the payment as a GIFT please and include your shipping address!  I hope to have the boxes in hand by the weekend and start ripping packs on Sunday.  Results will be listed per pack here on the blog - no video will be done.
