So as it turns out, I didn’t sit around and mope about the utter failure of my 2011 Topps Inception group case break attempt as long as I thought I would. In fact, about five hours after officially cancelling that break, I am ready to announce the next one. Hopefully this one has a bit better luck.
Now open for registration is a group case break of 2011 Topps Finest. I was looking into Topps Chrome, but that isn’t set to release until late October and I wanted to do something before then. Topps Finest is set to release in exactly two weeks, so hopefully we’ll get everything up and running so that I can purchase the case as soon as it goes live and get the cards into your hands shortly there after.
Here are the details:
CASE BREAK: 2011 TOPPS FINEST
Product: 2011 Topps Finest
Price per Entry: $27.50
Total Slots Available: 32 TEAM slots
Selection Process: Teams will be assigned randomly followed by a trading window for entrants to try to secure their favorite NFL team(s)
I would like to have all 32 slots filled and paid by SUNDAY, AUGUST 28. That gives us 1.5 weeks to fill up and then we could have five days of team trading. During that span, I’ll be able to purchase the case and once it arrives (Friday, September 2?), we’ll lock down the team assignments, bust the case, and get those cards distributed as quickly as possible. If there is any interest, we could also hold a trading window after the break results are posted for people to trade individual cards before they ship, but that can be decided later with a poll amongst paid entrants.
So there you have it. Hopefully we can muster up more excitement than the total 1 person for Topps Inception. With this break, the average slot will get 3-4 times as many cards and pay 1/2 the price as the previous break, so hopefully price point will be more favorable.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. And remember, the more the merrier, so sign up today and invite your friends!
