NEW GROUP BREAK SIGN-UPS: FIVE boxes including Topps Museum, Gypsy Queen, and Others!

A couple of days ago, I asked everyone for their input on a possible Gypsy Queen case group break which was met with the resounding trumpet of crickets.  That is, almost no one expressed any interest and so I've decided to not push that any further.

Instead, I have a new idea for a group break that I want to see if there would be interest.  Since lots (and lots) of new products are released all the time, I thought it might be fun to create a group break that consists of a bunch of relatively new products.  In particular, the break would ONE hobby box of each of the following sets:

  • 2015 Topps Gypsy Queen
    • 2 autographs AND 2 relics per box (24 packs, 10 cards per pack)
  • 2015 Panini Diamond Kings
    • 2 autographs or game-used per box (12 packs, 8 cards per pack)
  • 2015 Topps Museum Baseball
    • 1 on-card auto, 1 auto relic, 1 jumbo relic, and 1 quad relic per box (4 packs, 5 cards per pack)  (checklist)
  • 2015 Bowman Baseball
    • 1 autograph per box (24 packs, 10 cards per pack) - Among the first cards of Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler, and others!
  • 2015 Topps Opening Day Baseball
    • Chance at an autograph (36 packs, 7 cards per pack)

For this break, I will be doing tiered pricing meaning that the cost will depend on the team (see below).  All prices include shipping in a small flat rate mailer to the continental United States (included in that price is insurance for $50).  I will need to sell at least 20 slots to make the break work.  If the break does not run, I will refund all money sent me to me (for payment instructions, see the bottom of the post).  Note:  I will NOT be making the order until I have at least 20 slots claimed and paid for.

As is usual with my breaks, I will also throw in a few other random packs and/or other assorted cards as the break progresses.  Also, I will open all boxes on video (as I have begun to do for all my group breaks).  If we pull a card that features players from multiple teams, that card will be randomized among all the featured teams at the end of the break.  If the card is a hit that features multiple teams, I will roll a die (or do some other similarly fair way to decide) on video.  Finally, if the card features a team that is no longer in existence, we will determine the correct "modern" franchise to which that player would belong.

If you are interested in joining the break:

1.  Please leave a comment below with the team(s) you are claiming.
2.  Send PayPal payment to:  fanofreds (dot) auctions (at) gmail (dot) com (the same email that is in my profile).  I would appreciate all payments sent as "gifts."  
3.  Send me an email (to the same address as above) with the following information:

  • Your user name
  • The team(s) you claimed
  • The email address you sent payment from 
  • Your mailing address

I ask that everyone do the above three steps, even if I have traded with you many times - it makes packaging the cards a much, much quicker task for me.  Thanks!

Finally, if you have a blog, I would greatly appreciate it if you would advertise this break to your readers as well.  The quicker I sell the slots, the quicker I can place the order (and hopefully lock in the prices)!
