May 2018 Affordable Group Break

For the next edition of my Affordable Group Break we'll be going back to my roots and featuring products (Score) that should yield a mixture of base, Hall of Fame veterans with a chance of some parallels and inserts. Most importantly, this will be affordable at only $8 for two team slots! 

We'll start off with 1994 Score Select (Hobby). 24 packs, 12 cards per pack. When this debuted it was priced a little higher than I could afford and thus I didn't get a chance to experience this product much. A complete breakdown team by team can be found at the Trading Card Database.

When I can get both series 1 & 2 of a product, it's hard to chose sometimes which box to go this time around why not go with both series 1 and 2 of 1994 Select? Same configuration, 24 packs, 12 cards per pack. A complete over view of the set can be found at the Trading Card Database.

The final box will be one of the original products I proposed, 1995 Score Series 2 Jumbo. 24 cards per pack, 24 packs per box. Inserts include Hall of Gold, Rookie Dream Team, Airmail (exclusive to series 2 jumbo). 2 Gold Rush parallels per pack. For a full overview of the set, head back on over to the Trading Card Database.

We'll have 15 total spots available with the format of choose 1 team and the 2nd team will be randomly assigned once the break is full. Cost for each slot will only be $8 shipped. Since the 1988 only had 26 teams, two slots willAll cards pulled will be shipped. Packs will be opened Live in the Facebook group, including randomization of second team(s).

As with all of my breaks, there may be bonus packs/boxes and if any participants teams don't yield as many cards as the next guy, we'll I'll make sure to toss in more freebies.

If you're interested, all you need to do to claim your slot:

* Join the Facebook group (not required, but highly recommended)
* Comment with the team you want (first come, first serve)
* Payments will be by PayPal, (Goods & Services only)

I don't have a date yet of when we'll go live. Once the break is full and everyone has paid, I will place the order for the product. Once ordered, we'll aim for the following Friday or Saturday night to go Live. Please help spread the word to others that you know may be interested.

  1. Put me down for the Cardinals, please!

  2. Giants! Will get to Paypal in a bit.

    1. You got it Nick. Thanks for the support.

    2. Cool. Looking forward to this. Especially the Select since it's a set I'm totally unfamiliar with. Also (and not like my decision would've been any different) holy moly is the Giants checklist in 1995 heavily loaded toward Series 1.

  3. Angels. I'll have to send cash to sneak it under the radar.

  4. I will take the Phillies. Thanks.

  5. I'll take one more slot to try to fill this up more - Mariners, please. Will pay you sometime this week. :-)
