Question: If you're going to do two breaks, can you separate the two groups via current vs. historic product? Doing breaks of Legendary or other historic sets isn't likely to net anything for modern expansion team owners. As a Marlins guy, I will never get anything from a Legendary Cuts break ... I still love the breaks of these boxes, I'd just like to have a % change of getting something from these products...thus the suggestion of two different breaks.

Also, is there any way to penalize owners who have the Yankees?

stusigpi said...

The monthly break was designed around getting team collectors cards from many different sets. I do understand the frustration from those of you that are fans of Marlins, Diamondbacks and other teams that aren't well represented from historic sets.

Legendary cuts was a change of pace product that in retrospect I shouldn't have picked. Most products, and Prime cuts is included, do have a wide variety of rookie autos and such. For example our SPX boxes, both buybacks were of diamondbacks, the 09 finest had Dexter Fowler Rockies autos.

There will always be teams that have the advantage, certainly the yankees, redsox and other old school teams are going to have monster hits out there. I'm not sure what to do about that. For example Sweet Spot has a bunch of Griffey and Jeter autos.

Note we haven't pulled any Pujols hits, jeter autos, gwynn, Ripken etc. In fact our Prime cuts hits have been Joe Medwick twice and Roger Maris.

Perhaps I can take the Yankees and Red Sox out of the mix and just random all of the cards?

King Felix 4 CY said...

Hey Jeff. I would like to pick up the Mets in break 2. Also, my break 1 team is Toronto now, I dropped those 2 other world beaters.

Pop Startled said...

I totally understand the hard position you are in...doing more random/mixed spots make it more difficult for you to keep track of all the items. There's really no perfect answer, since most of us chose our favorite teams and really just want those cards.

Maybe taking the Yankees and Red Sox and using them as wild cards might work, but then again, were does that stop? What if we get major Cubs hits and then someone, like me, complains? I honestly don't know the answer, but I just wanted to express my doubts about doing anything too history heavy since it leaves modern expansion teams out. Thanks again for the great breaks.

stusigpi said...

Not sure if I said this already, but at least with prime cuts their are tons of rookie and prospect autos in the product. Those favor teams like the Marlins, Dbacks and newer teams. Some of those cards can make the break more than worth it. It's funny that the Marlins have been around for 15 years and there aren't more hits out there.

Don't get me wrong, I have been killed on group breaks and get how much they can suck when you get shafted a couple times in a row.

Tony said...

I'd like to get in on the football breaks. Put me down for the Dolphins and Cardinals.

Let me know how to make the payment.

Also, do you guys break basketball boxes?

stusigpi said...


I do break basketball but there isnt enough interest in it from my readers to do a break.

Please pay between the 25th of November and December 1st.

Thanks for joining the break.

darkship said...

What about for a "high end" box doing 2007 Exquisite Rookies? Don't nkow if the cost would be too much but seem to get a good selection of teams there

stusigpi said...

I was thinking of doing 2 boxes of 07 exquisite for both Break 1 and 2 for January. Should be able to get them for $120 or so a box unless they go way up and two boxes of t-206 for each

White Sox Cards said...

Paid up for the White Sox baseball break group one.

darkship said...

payment sent for three total teams

arfmax said...

If the football break doesn't fill up, will you cancel it?


stusigpi said...

It depends on how close it is.

John said...

I would like the 49ers for the football break.

stusigpi said...

I have decided that the football break is going forward for sure. In fact all of the breaks are going forward. Pay at will. The 49ers are yours John.

John said...

Payment sent for the 49ers in the football break.

beardy said...

Mark it dude, but not in a demanding way.

Chris S said...
