    I'm in for round two. I vote for that idea of an early 90's break. $3 buy in for 100 boxes. Oh yeah!

    ...and [MENTION=5670]linuxabuser[/MENTION] - If we go for another 90s break, I have a 42-box list (with links) of 90s product ready to go/send over. Never too early to start thinking about round 2!

    I don't believe so...tonight was the originally scheduled night for the draft.

    Speaking of drafts, I will select Randy Johnson with the 28th pick.

    (I'd be interested in a round 2, too)

    Since we are almost complete with the picks I'll relate the story of the draft about how I started with 1 and wound up with 3 picks

    I initially had no interest in the break and watched it waffle for a few days. Decided since they needed just 1 more participant to get the whole thing started I'd buy it just to help the board get started and enjoy themselves. With two offline sales and 3 eBay sales earlier this week = my entire investment was basically FREE since it was money I had from sales so I was playing with house money by participating.

    When the random.org mix occurred I lucked out with Choice # 3. I knew instantly someone would want the spot due to the level of inserts in the Top 5 players that may have been possible. Lo and behold Rodney ( tidel144) made me " an offer "you can't refuse". I immediately accepted his offer since I was getting his pick at # 5 and compensation that was overboard as far as I was concerned ( lets just say it is and will always be appreciated and anyone who knows him knows what type of person he is ). Far as I'm concerned if I pull a rare PC item in any of my boxes I crack I'll consider him first before others in his PC interests.

    I then moved to spot # 5. Which attracted the attention of our resident Juan Gonzalez collector Kevin ( Juanlasttime). He made me another offer I couldn't refuse- trading me TWO spots to move up to # 5 choice. Again- couldn't refuse that offer. So I moved from #5 to picks # 21 and # 30. So already had turned a free purchase into two free purchases !!

    Then since I basically had no money invested in the slots I offered to buy other spots- had a single taker at #27 ( s10dragingass) --hence 3 picks. I had now possession of picks 21, 27 and 30.

    I moved up from this 3rd pick = pick #30 = after talking to Billy (Therion). So I then became pick #26 .I'll be sending him a thank you item for that trade

    Hence picks 21,26, and 27 from a start of 1 single pick. And lets just say I paid NOTHING to participate. All came from blessings provided by offline sales and board generosity.

    This 90's break will be a JOY to take part in since it basically cost me nothing but time to take part in a community event

    Jeff



    p.s. Not sure if many people had time to follow my thread in the box break section BTW but I was emptying out some storage space of a lot of late 90's early 2000 boxes HERE. So I am fully aware what its like to enjoy a multiple box break occur. I'm going to continue those breaks later in the year. So if anyone cares to discuss a similar type of 2000's break- I'd be interested.

    I was dinking around with offers with this guy (99 topps stars) Itís a good price for a break with decent chances for some nicer pulls, good candidate for round 2. I think he would accept a $120 offer for 3 boxes which I think is pretty fair. I have been half-heartedly picking up the foil parallels for a few years now.

    Jeff - really appreciate the kind words and especially the notion keeping me in mind going forward. Helping each other out in this hobby is important to me and FCB is a community where this manifests constantly through its members and group breaks like these.

    Similar to Jeff's post, I wheeled and dealed myself, but ultimately came up short! Randomizer had me at pick #16 and I wanted to trade up to get my PC guy, Griffey. Contacted [MENTION=11290]Verdammt[/MENTION] who generously offered to swap his #5 spot for my #16 in an effort to help me get Griffey - at no additional cost - because he thought the guy he wanted (Maddux) would still be there at #16 (and was). This is what I was referencing a few sentences above - public thanks again, Verdammt.

    Then traded my #5 to Jeff for his #3, as detailed above. I knew getting into the top 2 would secure it for me since I know [MENTION=22656]soxcolts[/MENTION] and who he was going to take (Thomas). He even tried to help by saying he would trade swap spots with me if I could guarantee Thomas would be left at #3 (again, helping each other out is a common theme here). Unfortunately I couldn't guarantee that so had to hope Aumike1976 would pass on Griffey as he and I couldn't work out a trade for our slots.

    While I didn't get Griffey, Jeter is a great consolation - have a few good buddies that PC him that I could help out. And with the efforts moving up 13 slots trying to get my guy, I felt like a NFL GM on draft day. Again, no hard feelings to [MENTION=6507]Aumike1976[/MENTION]. This has been a fun ride thus far and the boxes haven't even busted yet.

    Glad I could help even though you didn't get your guy. As an aside, my main PC guy is the number 2 guy who started behind Maddux for those Braves teams of the 90s. I also have an interest in Maddux and want to PC him and figure this would be a good shot at getting him started. So, whoever gets the remaining NL, I'll probably be making contact to work out a deal for my main PC guy.

    Man, after looking through the players remaining at my second pick while trying to decide on who to take, the AL and NL slots are going to be money! So many collectible players remaining. These spots were a great idea.
