    Bingo.

    This prevents everyone from "calling their spots" now. Like yeah, everyone wants Griffery/Jeter/their guy. Well, you can always trade picks later so you get a higher slot and a closer-to-first choice.

    I wish we could get our hands on some high-end product for reasonable prices (1993 Finest, 1996 Select Certified, 1993 SP). 1998 Donruss/Leaf could be fun, too...chasing Crusade cards. I haven't bought a box online in quite awhile, so I don't know that I can be of much help in that arena but I'll start looking.

    Let's pretend we purchase one of everything Tidel has proposed. That's $1100.

    Let's also pretend we define 30 stars that each get their own slot. If we add the 2 extra slots for AL/NL non-stars, that's 32 slots.

    Product price is $1100/32 slots = $34/slot + shipping

    Pretty affordable, considering the potential.

    So youíre thinking snake draft? Also, Iím guessing Belle wouldnít be a star? So Iíd shoot for the AL or something. Could be fun.

    I think if we got some nice boxes, everyone should be good for $40 buy in.

    Iíd also recommend everyone have the option for pay the shipping and you send the cards... or forgo the shipping and you keep the cards lol.

    Can someone take a stab at what the top 30 players list would be? Just curious what it would look like. So many good players from that era.

    Nevermind, simple Google search showed top 25 as the following from 1 to 25...

    Griffey Jr.
    Bonds
    Thomas
    Bagwell
    Roberto Alomar
    Larry Walker
    Belle
    Juan Gon
    Sheffield
    Piazza
    Palmero
    Edgar
    Biggio
    Fred McGriff
    McGwire
    Larkin
    Sosa
    Bichette
    Bernie
    Gwynn
    Mo V
    Lofton
    Paul O
    Ripken
    Ivan R.

    Then pick 5 more and there is your top 30. I think weíre into something.

    Iím in. So you are saying I should stop buying every box I come across thatís good to bust for this break?! lol

    One product 100% x infinity to not bust is 93 SP. For $2400 your better off trying to buy some PSA 8 and re sub them. I opened some at $300 and wanted to cry. Jeter doesnít even fall 1 per box. Iím down for as much 93 Finest and 96 Certified. Those bloodbaths are only $600ish and we can all enjoy the pain
