    I would get in but the phillies have been locked for years...I don't really have a second favorite team.

    LOL

    That's a valid point...just very hard to get fresh blood in that format.

    I participated sparingly in the past but it’s been a couple years. On a budget I just couldn’t justify the cost vs buying singles for my team. I understand some people who collect everything also like the second random team but I’d be more likely to buy in at half the price and only get the team I wanted. Again, I know a lot of people like the random team )and that often saves the break for them ) just personally wasn’t a good fit for me. I love that the group exists here and wish its continued participation

    First off let me say that I do appreciate that you take the time and put the energy into making this happen for board members.

    I too participated a few years ago. The team collector concept is nice in theory. Unfortunately money drives this industry just like any other. A couple of hot players unfairly drives up the prices for everyone. And two or three lucky guys reap the benefits. For most teams, unless you luck into a ‘decent’ 1/1, the value isn’t there.

    I only collect McGwire and knew that the odds of me getting my money’s worth in McGwire cards was very small. Fortunately I could afford to take that chance. The extra team rarely plays in because it is probably not a team you are interested in, and without a big hit, has little value (monetary or personal).

    I really don’t know of an easy change. You could random a draft order. This gets away from the intent of the group though.

    You could tier the pricing. This just creates more work for you, and will undoubtedly anger someone.

    Anyways, good luck and I hope it works out.
