View: https://youtu.be/k5suFwSiKpM


Edit to include payment info:

$70 if you have one team
$136 if you have two teams

PayPal: mike@mikemedeiros.com
If you send as "Friends and Family" PM me your shipping address (even if you were in the last break)
If you send as "Goods and Services" make sure your shipping address in PayPal is correct
Either way, include your SoSH handle in the notes

Alternate Payment Method:
Venmo: @mm512 (different from the last break, so you don't have to send to my wife this time)
Include your SoSH handle and shipping address

If you need to send a check (or rolls of pennies), shoot me a PM.

Once everyone has paid, I'll randomize for draft order, and we'll draft for teams!



Original Post:
For June, we'll be breaking a 2021 Topps Finest 8 hobby box case (480 total cards)

Details on Finest can be found here:
https://www.blowoutcards.com/sports-cards/baseball-cards/2021/2021-topps-finest-baseball-hobby-8-box-case.html
http://www.blowoutcards.net/images/ss/21tpfinestBB.pdf

It's a 100 card base set with 2 autos per box (so 16 total autos in break)

Cost: $70 per slot (includes shipping and supplies)

Format: This time around, we're going to draft teams. Once we have 30 slots filled and paid, I'll randomize the slots 3x at random.org. We can then draft in this thread, so everyone doesn't have to be online at the same time.

Once the draft is complete, I'll schedule the break. I'll do it live on Youtube again, and it will be available after if you can't catch it live. I'll probably break on a Friday or Saturday evening again. Which weekend it happens will depend on how long it takes to get all slots paid and the draft complete.

Cards will ship within a couple of days after the break. Hits will be in penny sleeves and toploaders. Everything else will be bagged. All will ship securely in a box or padded envelope.


1. Post in this thread to let me know you are signing up. One slot per person for the moment, but indicate if you would buy more than 1 slot if we are short of 30 participants.

2. I will post instructions for payment once we have 30 slots filled.

3. Please subscribe to this thread if you are participating

Let me know if there are questions.

I was curious about one particular rule after watching the last break. If a player has been traded or signed with a new team, does he go to the team he is currently on or the team printed on the card?

For someone who knows nothing - how do you know which teams are good to pick?

I am in again. I would also be open for two slots again.

Edit - I would only take a second slot if we couldn't fill all 30 slots.

Thanks - the last box break - I had never heard of many of the players.
The checklist on this product is much smaller. You’re going to know every player. Bowman contains tons of prospects and it’s a huge checklist. But the cool thing with Bowman is it’s the first card for a lot of players.

And looking over the link provided, it seems all teams have some good hits. Cards look pretty cool as well. Should be a fun break!

Okay, we've got 24 slots full, so 6 extra teams are available for those that volunteered. Based on the order people signed up/volunteered for a second, I'm adding one team for:
@Tangled Up In Red
@NJ_Sox_Fan
@Batman Likes The Sox
@Oil Can Dan
@shoosh77
@Deathofthebambino

If any of you 6 no longer want a second team, just let me know. There are a couple of additional volunteers, so we'll be covered either way.

Payment instructions will be posted later today.

Not to be argumentative, but I kind of thought I asked for two earlier than several of these others...

But I am willing to drop my valid claim in exchange for the 1st pick in the draft...
