(NOTE: this post will be at the top of the blog until after the break. All new posts will appear below this post. Thanks!)
This is it! I had enough positive response in just one day that I am moving forward.
I will be hosting a group box break for all those interested. $5 per team. Respond here as to which team(s) you want, send me paypal/email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to pay. If you do have a PayPal account, no worries! You can send check or money order or whatever for of US Legal Tender you choose (note that Monopoly-like money is not legal tender, just sayin).
I have already assigned folks to teams based on response to the "inquiry" post. If your team does not have a name by it, RESPOND HERE and let me know you want in.
The break *SHOULD* take place on or about August 8th, so please have your team(s) selected and paid for before then (folks paying by snail mail will be granted time for payment to arrive).
Rules: Cards will be awarded by player uniform. All names will be randomized and non-baseball/team cards will be handed out in the random order of participant names. So, first non-team card goes to first random name, second to second, etc. any unclaimed teams go to me (unless I decide to randomly assign those too - you never know with me!). Update: Yeah, so here's the deal with unclaimed teams: they will be handed out randomly to the folks who manage not to pull any team-related cards first, then to everyone else. My rationale is that by the end of this break, everyone should at least have SOMETHING in their mailbox! And, if anyone still manages to come up empty-handed, I'll toss them a Randomly Random pack for good measure.
Future $5 breaks will take place, so if you have a box of something you want to see in a group break, let me know and I'll see what I can do. I'm only interested in breaking baseball-centric boxes/cases, though...
