New Group Break Proposal

I was noticing that 2007 Upper Deck Exquisite Rookies has come down in price to where a case of five (5) boxes is now $615. I did a box break of this with Gellman at SCU and ended up with a Tulowitzki quad relic auto, which I was really happy to get. It was my first big box break score. You have probably seen it in previous posts here, and it is available for trade, for the right price.

Anyways, here is the description of Exquisite:

Each pack will contain one autographed rookie card, one multiplayer autographed card, one autographed memorabilia card and 2 more autograph cards. Each case will have a one of one autographed card!!! All base cards will be numbered to 99 with parallels numbered to 75 and 1. Rookie autographs are numbered to 99, 75, and 1 of 1. Multi-player autographed cards will feature dual, triple, Four, Five and Six signatures on a card and are numbered to 235, 150, 85, 75, 40, 35, 25, 20, 15, 8, 3, 2, and 1 of 1.

There are 6 cards per pack, 1 pack per box, 5 boxes per case. Is there enough interest to do this? We could do a random order break so that, for 30 people, each person would get one card. First card out, first person on the random list, etc. 

Let me know what y'all think.

That's 20.5 bucks per one card. I would rather take the risk and do teams again if that's the case

Not sure about that one, $20 for a single card is a bit steep, especially when it could be any team. I would sign up if it were team based and I could snag the Red Sox, but even then there will be a lot of unhappy people with only 30 total cards. Even perfect collation would produce just a single card each team.

Yeah, I agree, now that I think about it. I'm just throwing things against the wall to see what sticks.

What about a "draft"? The random order determines when you pick, then you get to pick your card.

Or you could do this:

$50 - first pick
$48 - second pick
$46 - third pick

18
16
15
14
13
12
11
10
9
8
7
6
5
4 - LAST PICK (remaining one card)

It might be more work, but would also generate more interest in the cards that are pulled, and would create some suspense.
