July Group Break is Open!

I teased it yesterday, and here's what we've got this time.
I found a great collection of cards that will make for a fun group break. There are multiple autographs and memorabilia cards, mostly baseball, but with a little bit of basketball and football thrown in.

While most of the lot remains a mystery, I was informed about perhaps 10% of the contents. I'm not going to reveal much about it, but there is one card in particular which might turn out to be one of the best cards we've ever had in a break. (Maybe as good as the Babe Ruth jersey from earlier this year.) The question is, which team does it belong to?

Well, it's not the Brewers, so I'll be taking them. This means that you can take a chance on getting an AMAZING card, definitely pull-of-the-year material, especially if you're a fan of this team. If you don't happen to pick this team, don't worry, there are plenty of other good cards to find. There's supposed to be almost no base cards in the lot, mostly inserts, parallels, autos, jerseys...

Here's how this break will work. You can claim a baseball team for $20. This will also get you one random football team and one random basketball team. If you wish, instead of receiving a random football or basketball team, you can stake a claim to a team of your choice for $3. So for example, if I claimed the Brewers, I could also step forward and request the Bulls and Packers for a total cost of $26.

Chris Mays said...

Braves please! Payment on the way ...

Jeff Wilk said...

I'll do the White Sox and you can just random the b-ball and football teams.

Josh D. said...

Can you say approximately how many cards are in the lot? Or about how many cards the average baseball team would get?

Thorzul said...

The seller hinted at there being around 300 cards, but no exact number was given.

BA Benny said...

Mets and Saints please, random hoops.

The Dimwit said...

Is there any guarantee that all teams are represented? With a box break, we can look at the checklist at least and see if it's worth it. I'd really hate to pay $20 for my Astros and end up with nothing, or watch the Yankees walk away with 40 hits... lol...

Thorzul said...

Sorry, I can't guarantee than any single team is represented.

Billy Suter said...

Pirates for me!
