January Group Break Is Open!

New stuff this month, spanning a range of years and products, complete with a unique twist.

One (1) box of 2007 Topps Chrome Baseball
One (1) box of 2005 Topps Pristine Baseball

And the kicker...
One (1) box of 2010 Famous Fabrics (2nd Edition)

The Chrome, you probably know, so no explanation necessary.
The Pristine is one of those products with a lot of those uncirculated cards, autos, parallels... should be a lot of fun.
It gets weird with Famous Fabrics. I was watching some YouTube breaks, and it looks like an interesting product. It's one of those brands that has no pictures of the cards' subjects, but there are some crazy hits to be had. This is also a one-card-per-box product, so there's only going to be one lucky one among us. Famous Fabrics is a multi-sport product, and I've figured out a fun way to determine who gets the big pull.

First of all, the baseball teams will be accounted for. I'm really liking the one choice/one random set-up, so we'll go with that again. This will account for all 30 MLB teams. After all slots are filled, I will random off the 30 NHL teams, the 30 NBA teams, and the 32 NFL teams. The final two NFL teams will initially go unclaimed. If one of these teams miraculously becomes the big hit, the card will be randomed off amongst everybody. The same goes for the big pull being a track and field, soccer, horse racing, boxing, etc. card. A trading window will be opened following the randomization and prior to the break.

This group break will cost you $22.00 for a two-team slot (one of your choice, one randomly assigned), plus all of the non-baseball craziness.
