Razor Letterman case break 2: letter patch auto boogaloo

"How many times is he gonna use this image on his blog?" "At least it's not the WOLVERINES! guy..."
Ok, so I've had enough people show interest that I'm going to do another 2008 Razor Letterman case break.  Atlanta Sports Cards has it again for $299 and Blowout might eventually, so either way I'll get it ordered before next weekend.  Here's the deets:

  • One case, 10 boxes of five, 50 total autograph patches
  • 10 total break slots, including me, so 9 would be available
  • If I don't get at least five other participants, the break will include as many boxes as there are participants plus three, giving us enough variety that some great stuff should be pulled, but making things fair for everyone, including me
  • $35 shipped per slot; payment is due the day before the break (so in this case, Friday the 28th by 11:59 PM).  Please comment or email me for my Paypal address if you need it. 
  • Each slot is guaranteed five autographs
  • Distribution of the hits:  we'll bust all the packs, then draft everything one slot at a time, with draft slots randomized.  It will be a snake draft, which means the person who picks last in odd numbered rounds picks first in even numbers.  As last time, I'll randomize several times if necessary should I get the first pick
  • As before, I'd then allow trading at any point before I package the cards for shipping
  • I'll ship the cards as soon as I can once everything's settled, though I'd plan on the following Monday
  • Scheduled break date/time:  Saturday, January 29th at 3:00 pm EST.  This will include a live video stream of the break, followed by the card selection draft, then any trading anyone would like to do (so please consider your availability accordingly).  Please make sure you can at least be around for the card selection, because if not I'll have to select your cards for you, manually or randomly.
  • Please let me know as soon as you can if there's a date/time combo that works better for you and I'll see what we can do. 

Update:  got the case ordered today (Friday) so we're good for next Saturday at 3 unless enough people can't make it.
