OK, between here and Twitter there has been a great big discussion on the potential pricing and what to do about God's boy, and his team. Here are the two options:
1.) We split the break 29 ways, ALL Strasburg cards are pulled. The auto, if there is one, will be sold and the profit split amongst those who participated. The base cards of S.S. can either be auction on eBay for the same purpose, or the team will be left out completely and we can use those cards as prizes. Just a thought.
You get: Just the cards of guys on your team. Base, inserts, gu, auto's, etc.
2.) Same as choice one, only this way will get you one base cards that is pulled of everyone on your team, plus as many of a base set as we can make from one case per person so that you don't end up with 9 of each player.
You get: A team set, PLUS a starter set, and the base, inserts, gu, auto's, etc. of your team.
My goal is to keep the cost around $40 or less per person. That being said, we can tier the team pricing to get more people interested.
The tiers would be according to the average number of cards from that team that usually appear in sets. This is just an example, and is not set in stone.
Tier 1: Yankees, Red Sox, Phillies, Braves, Cubs
Tier 2: yadda, yadda, yadda
Tier 3: yadda, yadda, yadda
Tier 1, being the most andTier 3 being the least. If doing a tier system sounds like the way to go please leave a comment and let me know as well as your choice of option 1 or 2.
I will call this week and get prices on products and post the prices of the products and then we can figure out the cost per person and post it for those interested. I think 15 or more people would be good with a midrange case.
