2012 Topps Jumbo HTA Group Break?

2012 Topps Series 1 is just around the corner so I thought I'd throw this out there.  I've decided not to build the set or buy any (many) blasters, rack packs or looseys.  That said I will want the Braves cards from the set so why not do a group break!  Surely I can find 14 other people to participate.  Here are the options:

1) What I'm proposing is a jumbo box (10 packs, 50 cards per pack with 1 auto & 2 relic cards).  Cost would only be $10.00 for 2 teams - 1 team of your choice and 1 team randomized.  That's less than the price of a blaster!

2) I also thought about tossing in another box just to up the card count as well as a chance of hits.  I can add a hobby box of 2009 Topps Ticket to Stardom (3 hits) for an additional $5.00 per slot ($15.00 / 2 teams).

So - any takers for either option?  Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in either option.  I'll gauge the interest and officially open sign-ups based on the response.


  1. Count me in as interested in option 2

  2. I'd be interested. I like the sound of option 2 as well.

  3. I've always wanted to participate in one of your breaks Colbey. I just need to figure out who my 2nd favorite team would be ...

  4. I am planning on buying a hobby box, but I'd still be in just to fill the team set and maybe get lucky with some parallels and/or hits. Option 2 would be preferable for me as well.

  5. Thanks for the response everyone! I'm going out on a limb and placing the order now as the price for the Ticket to Stardom may go up soon since it was on sale. Official sign-ups will go up later tonight! If you commented here I'll put you down for your team of choice.
