Sent via PP. When I changed to friends and family, the shipping address disappeared. PLMK if it doesn't pass through to you.
Yeah - I didn't realize the address disappeared in PayPal with the Friends and Family option. PM your address anytime. I'm sure there will be a couple of others I'll need to reach out to.

Venmo wants the last 4 of your wife’s phone…never mind I saw a pay without confirming option.

Thanks to all that have paid so far. I'm keeping post #2 updated with payment status. Looks like about 8 teams remaining to pay, so we're doing well so far.

Four left to pay, so we're getting close. If we can get to 100% paid in the next couple of days, we can break this weekend (I'm thinking Saturday evening, and the recording will be available for anyone who isn't able to watch live).

I opened a couple of Bowman blasters over the weekend, and the cards look sharp. Hoping we see some huge hits from the hobby boxes!

We're full at the moment, opes, but if anyone drops out, I'll reach out to you. Otherwise, I am hoping we continue to do some additional breaks in the future.

Meant to say this earlier, but I don't need you to ship me commons. I've got over a million (yes, over a million, that's not hyperbole, it's bad) cards already taking up space in my basement, and don't need more. Feel free to donate them to children's hospital or charity or keep them or send them to someone trying to make a set. Either way, don't waste money on shipping you don't need to....

Payment sent - Apologies for the delay guys.

Will the random team assignment be done ahead of time and if so, will there be trades allowed?
Thanks.

I'll randomize for teams sometime before the break. I'll try to get that done ~24 hours ahead of time.

Trades are fine with me, as long as they don't become a headache for shipping, etc. To keep it simple (for me), all finalized trades must be posted to this thread and confirmed (in this thread) by the people making the trade.

We are now 100% paid.

I am planning to start the break at 8pm EDT on Saturday 5/22. Likely on YouTube live, but details to come. For anyone who can't join live, full video will be available.

I plan to randomize teams Friday evening, and I'll share details on that as well. I will plan to do that live w/ recording as well, as a dry run.

I actually got a Bobby Witt Jr auto. It wasn't 1/1 though. I cannot attach as the file is too large. It is one of the best hits I have over the past 12 months.
I have a #/50 Witt Jr Auto from a random Bowman Platinum pack. His auto game is on point.

I also got to scold him a week and a half ago for being a really nice dude, so I have that going for me.

A’s — like the team, but afraid I caught them in a post-grad year.
Sorry if I missed it... have we set a time for the break?

Whiners corner:

I’ll go ahead and challenge anyone to name a worse team for this break than the A’s. Only two players in the main set (Murphy and Chapman) neither of whom is a rookie or a HOF possibility, Luzardo-Puk-Murphy aren’t compelling Top 100 names, and no hot names among the younger prospects. The A’s are the only team with zero players in the MLB Top 100 prospects.

All in on a Rickey Henderson buyback autograph!
