November Group Break is Open

For November we'll be going with something old and something new, and no, none of you will have to get married in order to participate. On the docket we've got one box of 2009 Topps Finest and one box of 2004 Upper Deck Legends Timeless Teams.

Finest I'm pretty sure everyone is familiar with. Timeless Teams, however, is a forgotten beast. We're looking at 18 5-card packs, with two autos per box on average. There's also a cool case hit possibility as well, an example of which I added to my personal collection a couple of years ago.

At first look, it's just an unassuming card with a bunch of guys from the same team on it.

Open it up, however, and there's a buttload of relics. Six, to be exact.

And get this: These booklet cards are actually thin enough to fit inside your average binder page or jersey card top loader, unlike newer ones like those found in Sterling and the like.

I'll be experimenting yet again with a participation format change. The first 15 slots will be open on a first-come/first-served basis with participants claiming the team of their choice in the comments. Once the first 15 teams are chosen, the remaining ones will be placed in a random draw with one assigned to each person. Trading will be allowed. Each two-team slot will cost $17.50, to be paid via PayPal to the following address:

Feel free to claim as many teams as you like, but bear in mind that, like Little Caesar's in the '80s, for each one you buy, you get two. Claim two teams, you end up with four. It's your world.
