****Update**** If 3-4 people want to get together and buy the half of the case. That's cool too. If 4 people wanted to do it $63 a person would net you roughly 3-4 autos, 4 jerseys and a bunch of parallels, YSL, SP's and basecards.

Case breaking is the best way to acquire large amounts of shortprints, build sets and get hits including the case hits. The problem for me is I end up with a ton of cards I don't need.
This is just a thought. I see lots of people that pay a ton for shipping on singles of the black framed, autos and such when they could save themselves time and possibly some money.
Here are a couple proposals:
1 case 2008 Masterpieces Baseball: for $235 you would get all of the basecards and shortprints, Yankees Stadium Legacy Cards (these sell shockingly well), black framed and red framed except for any that I might need for my set, which is few. You would get all of the jerseys and all of the black framed autos. You would also get any printing plates.
I would keep all of the numbered parallels, the YSL jersey card (if there was one), and any jersey/auto, patch, or patch/auto.
This offer is available to as many people that would be interested. At first blush it may seem odd, but I don't have any interest in the jersey cards and the autos I have most of them.
If two people wanted to do it, $120 per person and I would randomly split everything down the middle between the two of you.

Same as above except $300 and you would get all base cards, shortprints, and black framed autos (except 1) and red framed parallels that I don't need for my set. You would get 1 red framed auto /10 of my choice. You would get any printing plates.
I would get all of the numbered parallels(except reds), the patches and 1 of the red autos of my choice. I would also get 1 of the black framed autos of my choice.
Is this unreasonable?
