SCC/Bench Joint Baseball Group Break Club - October 2021

Hi everybody! Wanted to get this started so that people have a chance to confirm and pay for their teams and/or add or drop any teams for this month's break by October 15th.

PayPal address: [email protected]

Price: $35/team + $15/draft spot
Payment Due: October 15th
Break Method: YouTube

Card Distribution

Cards will be distributed by one of the following methods, in this order:

1) Team printed (text or logo) on the card.
2) Team pictured on the uniform.
3) Team the player currently plays for.
4) Team the player played for longest.

Multi-team cards will go to the member who has the most teams on the card. If that can't determine it, it will go to the member with the team on the left, then top, of the card. For example, if the players are pictures left to right, the team featured on the furthest left of the card gets it. If the players are pictures top to bottom, the furthest top team gets it. If the players are situated on the corners, or some other way, the team with the left, top player will get it.

Cards from old teams that simply moved to a new town will be given to the owner of the team that they moved to. (ie. Montreal Expos = Washington Nationals)

All cards that cannot be determined from one of the above methods will be randomed off using random.org.

Shipping

All "hits" will be placed in toploaders, magnetics, or screwdowns. All low numbered (/99 or less) inserts will also be placed in a toploader. Everything else goes in a team bag, sandwiched between top loaders or cardboard. All of that is sent in a bubble mailer, with delivery confirmation (where available).

Most likely will not be in this months break since the September break was horrible for the Cubs pretty bad when your
random team does way better than your selected team.
No problem David. Sorry the Cubs weren’t hitting for you. Hope to see you back in the group sometime in the future. All the best!

Hi all,

Wanted to let everybody know that the Chicago Cubs have become available first for the next 24 hours to members already in the group. Please let me know if anybody is interested in picking them up. If there happens to be more than one member interested I will randomize to see who gets the team. If nobody in the group is interested over the next 24 hours they will become available to anybody who is interested in them whether they are already in the group or not. Please let me know if anybody has any questions.

Thanks,
Mike

Okay, couple of updates. Deputy Doopie has traded the San Francisco Giants for the Chicago White Sox. So the Giants are now available to anybody who might want to pick them up.

Also, Steeler8873 has joined the group and has picked up the Miami Marlins.

Can someone explain to me how this works or the details for this? I am intrigued and would like to decide if I want to be added to the waitlist. I am actually pretty confused…

Sure no problem I can try answer any questions you might have. If you would like to be added to the waitlist for a team that is already claimed you can do so at any time. If/when that team becomes available you will have a chance to claim them, teams that become available will be offered to folks on the waitlist first.

There are currently 7 teams that are unclaimed and can be snagged now or anytime. These are the unclaimed teams:

Arizona Diamondbacks
Colorado Rockies
Cleveland Indians
Kansas City Royals
Minnesota Twins
Oakland Athletics
Texas Rangers

It is $35 per team and you get all the cards in the break with players from your team.

I usually give members of the group the first two weeks of the month to confirm and pay for their teams. Once everyone is paid I give the group 3 options of boxes to break that everybody votes on. Option with the most votes wins and those are the boxes we break. Usually about 4-5 boxes (~$900 worth of cards).

It is a lot of fun and we have pulled some nice cards. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to jump in and claim an unclaimed team or be added to the waitlist for a team that is already claimed.

Thanks,
Mike

Awesome thanks for that.

What are the draft spots?

Awesome thanks for that.

What are the draft spots?
No problem.

So draft spots are optional add on spots for members who are already in the break with a claimed team to be able to snag another unclaimed team for cheap ($15 per team). The way we do that is people claim the draft spots when they confirm their team at the beginning of the month. Since there are currently only 7 unclaimed teams there are only 7 draft spots. Once the draft spot list is full I randomize the list before the break to get a draft order and people pick the unclaimed teams as their draft spot teams in that order. It is a great way to grab extra teams and extra cards for pretty cheap. And we have hit some nice cards for draft spot teams.
