April 2012 Group Break Announcement! CLAIM YOUR TEAM NOW! - WE ARE FULL!!!!!!!!!!

Alright everyone, I'm a bit behind on announcing my group break, but here we go...

It's going to be $17 for 2 teams (one your selection, the other randomly assigned), so sign up early and often. If you want a second slot, you can get a total of 4 teams (2 your choice, 2 random) for $31. If you want more than 2 slots, please e-mail me for a quote.

First of all, a word for our group break sponsor this month: Baseball Card Exchange
Steve over at Baseball Card Exchange has tons of boxes for sale. Not just baseball either, all sports. Great prices and great rates on shipping. One thing that annoys me about some places is that they like to make $$$ on their shipping charges. Thanks Steve for being a great sponsor to group break hosts all over the blog-o-sphere!

Here are the boxes we'll be busting this month:
2004 Topps Bazooka - Lots of entertaining cards here! 24 Packs and 3 hits per box!

2003 Topps Gallery Museum Edition - A lot like the Playoff Portraits or Masterpieces sets. The hand-painted look/feel, plus 2 more hits and a Coin Box Topper insert! 24 packs in this box as well!

2001 Fleer Game Time - A great set for those looking for a Pujols or Ichiro rookie! One and possibly 2 hits per box! Some special inserts as well! 24 packs, 5 cards per pack!

2001 Topps HD - Another 20 packs of awesome photography and thick card stock here! Odds are close to one hit per box! But this is a product you buy for the base cards for sure!

2002 Upper Deck Vintage - 24 packs at 10 cards per pack! Another early 2000's set from UD that I'm a fan of, these cards have the look of vintage cards from days gone by. One hit per box on average.

Well, I think that's an enticing group of boxes! All multi-player cards will be randomized amongst all teams listed on the card. All cards will go to the team listed on the card (not necessarily in the picture, but what team the card company assigned the player to on the front of the card). All cards from the Expos will go to the Nationals. Any other teams that have moved will be given to the team which it became. In issues of ambiguity where I am involved, an independent third party blogger will be asked to rule on any ownership issues. By purchasing a slot in this break, you're agreeing to these rules!

Please send payment via paypal (gift please) to samuelpair (at) yahoo (dot) com.
